  • Are the Algos Centre treatments safe?
    At the Algos Centre, the safety and well-being of our patients is our top priority. We work closely with each patient to ensure that our treatments are tailored to their specific needs and medical history. Although our treatments are generally considered to be safe, it is important to note that all medical procedures and interventions carry a degree of risk. We take every precaution to minimise potential risks and ensure that our patients are fully informed of any potential side effects or risks associated with our treatments. If you have any concerns, we encourage you to talk to us. We will be happy to answer your questions and provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision about your treatment.
  • How many sessions are usually needed to achieve results?
    At the Algos Centre we believe that each patient is unique and that each patient's treatment plan should reflect this. As a result, the number of sessions required to achieve results may vary depending on a number of factors, including the severity of the condition, how long it has been present and how the patient responds to treatment. During your initial consultation, we will discuss the expected duration of treatment and the number of sessions recommended for your specific situation. In general, our patients begin to see improvements after just a few sessions. However, some chronic or complex conditions may require a longer course of treatment. We always aim to create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your individual needs and goals. We will work closely with you to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan as your condition improves.
  • How long does a treatment session last?
    The length of a treatment session at the Algos Centre can vary depending on the type of therapy offered and the specific needs of the patient. However, most sessions generally last between 45 minutes and one hour. You will be given an estimate of the length of each session when your treatment plan is set up. We understand that your time is valuable and we strive to make the most of each session to ensure that you receive the best possible care.
  • What is the Algos Centre cancellation policy?
    At the Algos Centre we understand that unexpected events may occur that require you to reschedule or cancel your appointment. We ask that you give us at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment to avoid being charged for the consultation. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated and helps us to better serve all our patients. Thank you for your understanding.
  • Is the Algos Centre covered by insurance?
    At the Algos Centre we are recognised by most complementary insurance providers. Coverage for our services depends on the terms of your individual policy, so we recommend that you contact your insurance company to inquire about your specific coverage. We will be happy to provide you with all the necessary documentation for reimbursement. We also work with the Caisse de Médecine, which handles all billing and payments.
