Egg Freezing - Working toward my future family

Doctor Brown and his team are true miracle workers! I felt very supported from the moment I started the laser and acupuncture treatments. All his doctors were very knowledgeable, trustworthy and extremely patient with me. I knew that I was in good hands from my very first visit.

Goodbye Anxiety, Insomnia, and SIBO, Hello Pregnancy!

chemical pregnancy in October.

Pinch Nerve Pain Resolved naturally with Laser Acupuncture

Over the last couple of years, I've woken up once every few months with shooting neck and back pain, like a pinched nerve. Recently this happened a day before I was to fly to Europe and the thought of spending 9-10 hours trapped in my seat with this pain made me call Acubalance.

I didn't know where to turn and now I am blessed with my adorable four-month old

I am forever grateful to Emilie Salomons. I came to Acubalance at a loss of what to do. I’d been trying to get pregnant for almost two years without luck, and was already seeing a fertility clinic. The doctor there suggested I try acupuncture to help, and Acubalance was a highly recommended clinic.

LLLT Laser Healed Morton's Neuroma Foot Pain

I turned 50 & fell apart! First a frozen shoulder this winter, then Morton’s Neuroma in my foot in February 2018. After a podiatrist visit to confirm the Morton’s Neuroma, I began a series of cortisone shots that didn’t work.

Stage 4 Endo: I Saw an Improvement with Pain and the Bloating

Getting poked with needles? No thanks! That’s why I avoided acupuncture. Some find that funny, as I’m a Registered Nurse but as I always tell my patients, I don’t mind giving needles; I just don’t like to receive them! I was suffering from stage 4 Endometriosis and had also been diagnosed with Adenomyosis. The medications I had been prescribed were not working and I did not know what to try next. My cousin highly recommended Acubalance...

My First Facial Acupuncture at Acubalance Vancouver

"Christina has helped me take steps from just talking about 'self-care' into an actual reality.  Her capacity to instantly create a calm, safe environment offers an oasis in an otherwise very busy day.  I had the pleasure (really, it was a pleasure) to experience my first Facial Acupuncture recently at Acubalance and I will be returning for more treatments very soon.  It was so nice to really relax and receive such gentle, replenishing,...

Fibroid and Endometriosis Treated with Acupuncture and Laser Therapy - Now I'm 20 weeks Pregnant

Hello everyone. I was asked to share my story so others could learn about some of the non mainstream treatment options to help with fertility. I couldn't deny the request because I do know the feeling of not being alone and renewed hope when you browse through the numerous testimonies, to read something that is similar to what you are experiencing.
