Your appointment time has been reserved especially for you, which prevents others from accessing the services at that particular time. Therefore, 24 hours cancellation notice is required or a no-show fee equivalent to the full session fee will be charged -- except in the case of an emergency.
If you have extended medical coverage, we ask that you pay Acubalance directly at the time of treatment as we do not bill insurance companies. If your extended health care plan covers receiving acupuncture from an R.Ac or Dr. TCM (Registered Acupuncturist), you can submit your receipt for reimbursement to them.
For naturopathic services with Dr. Kali MacIssac ND check to if your plan covers naturopathic physicians (ND)
Accepted Payment Methods:
Payment is due at the time of consult/treatment
Visa and MasterCard (no Checks or American Express)
