Recent successful cases from our patients

Angela, a 53-year-old project manager: Burning up inside and out

Angela had been struggling with hot flashes and night sweats for a number of years, even before her period stopped five years ago.  She told us that initially they had only happened at night.  While the hot flashes disrupted her sleep and made her uncomfortable, she could deal with them.  In the last few months, Angela began expeirencing hot flashes during the day.  It was particularly disruptive and embarassing because of how sweaty and red in the face she became.  Angela complained that it was beginning to cause issues for her at work.  We started Angela on a simple treatment plan of acupuncture and herbal medicine.  Within a few weeks, Angela stopped experiencing the hot flashes at during the day.  In the following months, the hot flashes and night sweating began to ease and she began sleeping better.

Carrie, a 47-year-old accountant: Diminished desire & a lack of passion

Carrie came to see us because for a number of years she had been suffering from a loss of libido.  She felt like she no longer had any passion or desire left in her, “zero interest in sex.  Nilch!”  She was beginning to worry about the impact this was having on her marriage as she was now beginning to experience pain and discomfort during intimacy with her husband.  Carrie’s treatment plan included acupuncture and simple changes to her nutrition habits.  Within a few short months, Carrie reported that she began to feel more desire for intimacy with her husband and was no longer experiencing painful intercourse.  She feels a deeper connection with her feminity.

Sarah, a 56-year-old mom & business-owner: Comfortable in her own skin again

Sarah, a very busy and sometimes overwhelmed mom and business-owner noticed over the years that she had slowly begun to gain weight.  In the past, dieting and exercise helped her get rid of the weight gain, but no matter what she did this time around, the weight didn’t budge.  Sarah blamed it on the emotional rollercoaster of going through menopause.  She had also begun having sleep disruptions, night sweating, hot flashes and irritability.  Sarah started with weekly acupuncture and herbal medicine teas soon after.  The first thing that changed was Sarah’s moods and sleep.  She was less agitated and irritable and was no longer waking in the night from the hot flashes.  Soon she noticed that metabolism seemed to come back online and she was beginning to see results from her exercise and improved lifestyle.  Sarah happily reports that she feels like her self again, comfortable in her own skin!

Why our Women’s Health Enhancement Program is so powerfully 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.

The guiding principle of our Women’s Health Enhancement Program is that each woman is unique, and will be honoured and revered as such

Our women’s health enhancement program is designed to support your body’s natural intelligence, innate ability to heal and harmonize your own unique, delicate balance – physically, emotionally and spiritually. 

When you are vital, healthy, and full of life, your health potential naturally expresses itself in everything you do, and subtle obstructions to balance can be removed. 

We incorporate a detailed holistic analysis of your personal needs and combine it with information from your laboratory results.  By combining the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine with modern science, we are on the cutting edge of women’s health care, providing our patients with a high degree of accuracy and efficacy.  Your treatment program will consist of:

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.
