Do you accept clients who have been in motor vehicle accidents (MVA’s)?
At this time we are not providing treatments to clients who are claiming a motor vehicle accident through their insurance provider. The reasoning behind this is that the insurance industry has recently changed the rules regarding MVA claims. We will be happy to refer you to another clinic that will be able to provide treatment for you claim.
Why do Massage Therapists charge HST?
Under the federal Excise Tax Act, massage therapy is a service to which GST was applied. While massage therapists are considered health care practitioners under Ontario Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991, massage therapy is not included in the definition of health services that are exempt from the application of the HST. The list of exemptions is controlled by the federal government and the federal Minister of Finance has made it clear that the current policies governing exemptions will remain in place. A health profession can be exempted if is it regulated in five provinces or territories or if it is paid for in the health plans of three provinces. Massage therapy does not meet either of these conditions.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Generally, acupuncture does not hurt. Some people feel the needles as they go in, and some feel nothing. Acupuncture needles are solid, not hollow like hypodermic needles, and they are much thinner. Sometimes patients have sensations during the treatment, but they are not painful.
