Acupuncture services will be available soon. We are waiting for a directive from the College & Association of Acupuncturists of Alberta. We want to make sure we can ensure the safety of patients and staff.
Alberta Health Services is starting to loosen up with a 3-Stage relaunch plan. The first stage will allow non-essential health services to reopen provided that "The college of each regulated health profession will be responsible for providing guidelines to its members who operate community health care clinics." With this guideline the College & Association of Acupuncturists of Alberta has given Registered Acupuncturist notice: "... Acupuncture is NOT a part of the non-essential health services which were allowed to resume business (in Alberta). ACUPUNCTURE REMAINS URGENT CARE ONLY. " At this time any Acupuncture done by a Registered Acupuncturist will have to wait. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Here's a link to the actual order from the Chief Medical Officer of Health:
