Fibromyalgia pain 90% gone after first treatment

I have suffered from Fibromyalgia my whole life since infancy. It was not diagnosed until 2013. I have received 4 treatments so far. One treatment per week. After the first treatment, I noticed a significant reduction in pain. After the 2nd treatment, I would say that the pain was 90% gone. What I liked the best was the service. They take the time to understand all your symptoms to give you the best treatment. I would definitely recommend to all my friends and family. RK, Mississauga

Infertile for 2 years had 1 failed IUI

I have been struggling with fertility issues for the past 2 years.

Your clinic really helped me in achieving the goal of becoming parents for myself and my husband. Thank you to Annie for all of her help! Very professional and pleasant staff!

Conceived Naturally in 2 Months (Overcame PCOS and miscarriage)

I started acupuncture because I was having issues conceiving due to PCOS. My husband and I tried to conceive naturally for about 6 months and when that did not prove to be successful, we were referred to a great fertility clinic. After the first month of going to the clinic we conceived but sadly, that pregnancy ended after two weeks (on my birthday). We went to the clinic for a total of 7 months which involved almost daily visits, blood tests, ultrasounds and medication and I decided I needed a break - my body and mind needed a break. I did not want to give up, but I was disappointed almost every month that my cycle came. It just felt like too much, I felt like I was broken. In September 2013 I told my doctor that I was going to take a break from treatments at the clinic. I had heard lots of great things about acupuncture from a friend of mine who also had challenges with conceiving and was also undergoing treatments at an acupuncture clinic. I was ready to give my body a break from the heavy doses of medication and get rid of some of the stress that it was putting my body under. I was intrigued by the approach and looking for something that would not only help me to conceive, but also help to encourage overall health - head to toe. I came to the clinic at the end of September 2013 as a patient of Mary. She did a thorough history to really understand what my challenges were and explained how she can help me. She was always kind and encouraging, especially when I was not feeling so positive. She encouraged me to believe that this will happen for me one day and that all I really needed to do was be patient. I will say that besides getting my body ready to house a child, the sessions were very relaxing and I looked forward to them. My treatment regimen included acupuncture and Chinese herbs. I continued treatments until January 2014 when I discovered I was pregnant! I did not know for almost 8 weeks so it appears that it only took about 2 months of treatments to conceive. Mary was one of the first people I told because after all, she was a big reason for helping me to see this day. Needless to day that I have had a very positive experience and look forward to coming back to the clinic once I have the baby to continue to improve my overall health and wellness. JE, Mississauga

Conceived Naturally in 2 Months (Was Trying for 1 Year)

After trying to get pregnant for 1 year we decided to give acupuncture a try. Christine provided me with relaxing weekly treatments, along with changing my diet and recommending some Chinese herbs. After 2 months of treatment, we got pregnant. I strongly believe it was the acupuncture along with the herbs that helped to balance my hormones and provided me with nutrients I needed to conceive and help sustain the pregnancy. Thank you Christine for all of your support. NF, Oakville

Conceived After 2 Months (Was Monitored and Treated by a Fertility Clinic for Months With No Luck)

Words cannot express how thankful we are for all the support that Christine and Annie have given us while trying to conceive. After months of fertility monitoring, treatments, and stress, my husband and I decided to try acupuncture. Christine and Annie recommended that we do monthly treatments twice a week while taking Chinese herbs. Lo and behold, we got pregnant after 2 months of treatment. Not only did acupuncture and Chinese herbs help us conceive but it balanced our mind and body. We are truly grateful for our blessing and would like to thank Christine and Annie for supporting us, making us healthier and having faith in us. I am definitely coming back for the next one!

From Chronic Sciatica to Pain Free in 3 Sessions

I had the pleasure of seeking treatment at the clinic last week for a chronic piriformis sciatica issue I've had for the last 5 years. The day before, I had checked into my local ER for the pain and the loss of my ability to walk. I was administered Morphine to no avail. A co-worker suggested I try Acupuncture. So I found this clinic close to where I work, and decided that I had nothing to lose. A few hours after my first session of acupuncture, fire cupping and some herbal pain killers, I was able to notice a substantial reduction in pain by dinner time that night, and I was able to start putting weight on the injured leg. By my second session, I had almost no pain and was fully walking again. The acupuncture worked completely by my third session, and I am PAIN FREE! What would have taken weeks to fully recover from my sciatica, took days with acupuncture. I was impressed with the Traditional Chinese Medicine, and with Christine in getting to the root of this pain. I now know what triggers this, and she recommended some basic exercises to keep it all in check. I cannot recommend the Clinic highly enough! When modern medicine fails, TCM will prevail! Thanks Christine for helping me walk again! AZ, George Town

Hormones Balanced in 3 weeks

I have been having hard time to conceive. My eggs are not growing and I'm having irregular menstrual cycle. Before I turned to acupuncture, I have consulted my doctor at the fertility clinic and the doctor totally supported the treatment. I came to this clinic for acupuncture and Chinese herbs to help me regulate my period. In just 3 weeks, I've seen improvements already. My blood test shows that my hormones are more balanced. I also experienced less cramps. The uterus lining is not overly thick as before which is good in my situation. I highly recommend acupuncture and this clinic. IP, Mississauga

Conceived in 2 months

It was such a surprise and blessing when we found out around Christmas that we were expecting. Me and my husband didn’t think it will be that quick. We’ve tried a few things like chiropractors but did not get any results. After two months of treatment we finally found out that we were pregnant. Christine suggested to do acupuncture and medicinal herbs. I would like to thank you for all of your support and the time you spent with me and my husband to making us not just stronger and healthier to conceive but also stronger and healthier in life. I really believe acupuncture works to help balance our yin and yang. I would truly recommend Christine to anyone as she is such a great support before and even after the treatment is over.

Fibrocystic Breast Disease

I came to the clinic with a blocked milk duct in my right breast. I have fibrocystic breast disease which means that I am very prone to cysts in my breasts. I also have an overall hormonal imbalance, stress and fatigue. I have only received 2 full treatments and I already see improvements in my breast with less pain and swelling. I could see a positive result after the first treatment when I came in with pain and tenderness and left with a pain free breast. I really appreciated how much time Dr. Anita initially took to fully understand my health concerns. She truly cared and put in a lot of effort to insure me that she will do her best to help. I highly recommend the clinic for their professional staff and pleasant environment. JD, Milton

Full Term Pregnancy After 3 Miscarriages

I have had 3 miscarriages after my first child now he is 4 years old. At the time, my first child was 18months when I tried to get pregnant but I had miscarried within the 1st trimester. Then I tried again 6 months later the same resulted within the 1st trimester and a third time, the same. I ran tests with a gynecologist and rheumatologist for months and we found no solid issues. I figured I was unhealthy so I try to change my diet and started acupunture sessions with Christine to balance my hormones. My first session started in March 2011 and then followed by 10 more sessions. During those visits, I did conceive in June 2010 and was successful in carrying past 1st trimester. I was thrilled and then I did carried my 2nd child to full term and delivered a healthy baby boy on feb 2012. Christine was professional, positive and reassuring throughout all my acupunture sessions with her. After each session, I would feel great and energised and much healthier. She balanced my liver, spleen and kidneys and I felt less stressed. Christine also recommended supplements and herbs to balance my hormones and organs. I would definitely go back and do more acupunture sessions as I felt has worked wonders to balance my body thusfar during the past 2 years. R.G., Mississauga

Successful upon 1st IVF cycle

Having a medical condition, I had to go through IVF cycle to conceive, I went to Christine a few months before my first IVF cycle. She really listened and helped me work not only with the fertility issues but also my body heat and my stress level. She attended to me throughout the entire IVF cycle. Well, after the first attempt at IVF, I am thrilled to say that I have completed 10 weeks of my pregnancy. I truly believe that my acupuncture sessions as well as Christine’s support helped me to make this pregnancy a reality. I had issues with my uterine lining but Christine expertise helped me reach the required count for FET. Christine makes her patience very comfortable trying to find a way to help you feel better with fewer needles and is a good listener. Most importantly, she takes time out to follow up even after the treatment is over. Christine you provide a wonderful service and you are a great person to know! Thank you for everything, especially those late hours you put in to accommodate me in the evenings. Mary, Mississauga
