Although summer has not officially arrived just yet, it seems that the warm weather is here to stay. And no one wants to be inside getting acupuncture on a Saturday morning when they could be outside making the most of the sunshine! Given this, I have decided to move my stress and smoking cessation acupuncture sessions to Monday nights for the duration of the summer. Starting on June 6, I will be offering these weekly sessions beginning at 6 p.m.  All other details remain the same, only the day and time is changing. Please see below for more information.

What is it?

Dr. Marcoux’s four week acupuncture treatment programs for either:

  • Stress Management
  • Smoking Cessation

How will it work?

Once weekly for four weeks you will receive a half-hour acupuncture treatment. You will relax in a luxurious reclining chair in a small, quiet group environment. Dr. Marcoux will insert 10 to 20 needles into various acupuncture points. These points will be located in your feet, legs, wrists, ears and head. Dr. Marcoux will also use small seeds to do some acupuncture in your ears. Acupuncture needles are very fine and produce very little pain sensation. The ear seeds are attached with a small sticker and are pressed on to the ear without breaking the skin. You will relax with the needles in for about 30 minutes. Dr. Marcoux will check in on you periodically to see how you’re doing. The ear seeds will stay on your ears so that you can press on them anytime you are feeling stressed out throughout the week.

The first visit will include a 10 minute check in so that Dr. Marcoux can review your treatment goals and provide some take home materials. An additional 10 minute follow up is provided at the completion of the program so that you can discuss your progress and determine your next steps.

When does it start?

Sessions are on Monday evenings starting at 6 p.m. and will last approximately 45 minutes. Dates are as follows:

  • June 6, 13, 20, 27
  • August 8, 15, 22, 29

How much does it cost?

Regular acupuncture sessions at True Potential Health Services are $90 per 45 minute session. This package is being offered at $180 for four weekly acupuncture sessions. That’s a 50% discount!

How can I register?

Call 306-373-5209 to register today, as space is limited. Please note that full payment is required upon registration.

What happens when I’m finished?

After the program is finished if you would like to continue treatment or pursue other forms of natural medicine to achieve your health goals, you can book an initial, one-hour consultation to review your whole health history with Dr. Marcoux. Dr. Marcoux’s regular initial visit fee is $170 but she is offering a reduced rate of $135 for those who have completed one of the acupuncture treatment programs.
