Recent successful cases from our patients

Luna, a 53-year-old, policy analyst: Hooked on a good feeling

Luna, was highly stressed from a demanding job and was suffering with severe migraines that presented with flu-like symptoms that would leave her completely incapacitated and bedridden for up to 3 days.  Once her migraines were starting, there would be a point of no return. Luna complained that Tylenol or Advil would only work sometimes and only mildly.  The initial treatment plan included acupuncture. During the first week, the relief lasted for just a few days before the headache re-emerged. In the following weeks, the frequency of the headaches had decreased, and the duration reduced as well. Where normally her headaches would develop into full migraines, it seemed to dissipate immediately with the help of some pain relievers.  After each session, Luna also reported feeling more calm and improved sleep quality. The feeling of stress was still there but she was better able to shrug it off.  2 months after her initial treatment, despite being very busy and active she “couldn’t believe” that her migraines were not triggered and was “hooked” on acupuncture. She expressed that she had not felt this good in the last 10 years.

Elizabeth, a 64-year-old, retired pharmacy technician: Leaving it all behind

Elizabeth had been retired for almost two years but hadn’t been able to enjoy her retirement because of the severity of her migraines.  Her work had been extremely stressful and she was sure that it was the cause of her migraines.  Incredibly frustrated and disappointed that the migraines were still there, we started Elizabeth on a simple treatment plan.  Within a few weeks Elizabeth began noticing that first her migraines were less severe.  Then they stopped happening as frequently.  Today, Elizabeth no longer experiences migraines or headaches.  She no longer has to plan her life around whether or not she think she will experience the debilitating pain.  She is able to play with her grandchildren and go for hikes with her husband and enjoy her life without reservation.

Lisa, a 28-year-old, office administrator: An end to monthly misery

Lisa began experiencing debilitating migraines when she was in university.  The migraines would begin about one week before her period came each month and lasted until the first or second day of her period.  Unfortunately her periods were very painful and despite being free from migraine-pain at that time, she still suffered significantly.  After her period finished, Lisa would sometimes experience headaches.  She complained that there was really only about one week to ten days a month where she felt ok.  We started Lisa on a treatment plan of acupuncture and herbal medicine.  Initially she noticed that her migraines didn’t last a full week, they became shorter and shorter until they stopped altogether.  She stopped having cramps during her period and headaches afterwards.  She is happy to report that she no longer misses work due to the migraines or periods.

Why our Natural Health Enhancement Program is effective:

We address the root cause

Determining and then addressing the root cause of your symptoms allows us figure out what’s really  going on and then correct that imbalance. This is what allows you to experience long lasting, true healing and wellness.

We use an all natural approach

Natural medicine is powerful, effective without the toxicity associated with pharmaceutical drugs and chemicals.  Decreasing your toxin load frees up more of your energy and resources for healing and transformation.  Natural medicine can also be used to reduce the side effects of your drugs.

We awaken your body's natural ability to heal

Your body was designed to self-regulate and self-heal.  Symptoms happen when this capacity gets blocked.  Healing happens when we remove these blocks and remind the body of it’s innate, natural healing ability.

We fuse ancient wisdom with modern science

Ancient wisdom honours the use of natural medicines and the body’s natural ability to heal itself.  Modern science has provided technology and specialized insight into the physical and chemical processes in the body.  This combination contributes to improved treatment outcomes.

We keep it simple

Simplicity in treatment means less confusion for your body while it heals.  It is also the way you’re going to be able to make positive lifestyle changes that are sustainable and long lasting.  Keeping it simple makes your healing journey easier and more straightforward.

Our Process

3 Simple Steps:

1. Free initial consultation

At your free initial consultation you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your concerns including current symptoms, medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS.  We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you – BEFORE we move forward to the next step.

2. Detailed assessment, report of findings & treatment plan

Once your free consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment.  At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan of action.  Your first acupuncture session will be performed at this time.

Afterward, you will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions.  Your clinician will explain to you what’s happening in your body and how we will work together to correct it.  Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root cause of your concerns and address your most pressing symptoms.

3. Active treatment & symptom resolution

You’ll return for regular visits to ensure that we’re supporting your body, as you begin to feel the positive shifts from treatment.  We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results.  You’ll receive acupuncture and any other appropriate treatment at each visit to ensure that your progress is cumulative and your concerns are resolved as soon as possible.

Transitional care as your symptoms & health stabilize

Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits.  The goal will be to maintain the improvements we’ve achieved with more frequent, regular treatment.  Initially you’ll come every week, then less frequently, then you’ll no longer need regular treatments.  We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or address other health concerns.  Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to do that, should that be your wish.

Taking care of your friends & loved ones

We pride ourselves on the fact that more than 80% of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in our community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receive life-changing benefits through our work.  So, we look forward to helping YOUR family, friends and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic and purposeful life.
