The Benefits of Acupuncture

Even before the thought of having children was an option for me, I focused strongly on my fertility. Having a history of PCOS, I wanted to gain control of my reproductive health to avoid risking a long and arduous conception journey. Through a friend, I met Ryan from Acubalance, and he quickly became my families Acupuncturist.

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!

I came to Acubalance in November 2017 after going through a
chemical pregnancy in October.

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.

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. Orthotics gave some relief, but I was still unable to walk even short distances without pain. My old life of hiking, running & gym classes seemed to be slipping away until a friend suggested...

Flash Back to My Fertility Journey

For almost three years, Acubalance was my second home, where I found peace and gained control of my health and improved my well-being week after week. I had the most amazing pregnancy and easy birth only because of the unconditional support I received from unbelievably kind and caring Ryan.

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,...
