If you’ve ever had chronic knee pain, you will appreciate this. I have suffered from chronic knee pain for a number of years and it finally got to the point where I needed to do something about it. I spoke with Dr. Lorne Brown at Acubalace in Vancouver who suggested that I try a series of laser (LLLT) and acupuncture treatments.
Featured Success Story
Kathleen has been amazing. Not only is she a wonderful acupuncturist, but she is much more.
Last summer, I went to the Philippines and partook on surfing activities. After the trip, my right shoulder began to hurt from muscle strain. For four months I couldn’t raise my right shoulder and move it in certain directions without causing sharp pain. I tried various arm and shoulder stretches to alleviate the pain but nothing seemed to relieve it.
I began seeing Kat for acupuncture treatments during the final trimester of my pregnancy. My intention was to support my physical health as I prepared my body for birth, but with Kat, I got so much more.
She took so much time with me at each visit, asking me insightful questions and listening with depth and curiosity. I could tell she really wanted to treat my whole person, not just my pregnancy or my symptoms. I left every visit...
Dr. Kathleen Lee has a gentle, detailed approach to care that helped me to live the way I wanted. After her treatments, I started to feel less lethargic and was in the right place to get pregnant. Kathleen Lee listens and supports your health goals. One of my goals was increased energy, another to have a baby.
She helped me to get there and my pregnancy was fulfilling and healthy because she addressed my anemia and fertility.
After being told by my Vancouver IVF clinic that it was very unlikely I would ever conceive, that I had low egg reserve, and that they couldn't help us with any fertility assistance, I found myself awfully saddened and distraught by the news. Then I found Acubalance. Not only was I welcomed with warm hearts and caring voices, I felt like someone was listening and was not only wanting to help but as Kathleen said, ready to cheer me on!
Hi Allison! Hello Lorne!
I trust this message finds you well! We are now back from our trip out west (which was fabulous!).
Allison, I had an opportunity to chat with Lorne just now, and wanted to update you as well that I have cancelled my back surgery (laminectomy and fusion of L4-S1) that was originally scheduled for July 25th!!!
My name is Tressa and three and a half years ago I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). For three years I battled RA with an anti-inflammatory diet and a natural approach. While I found some relief using these methods, the disease continued to progress, eventually resulting in pain in my left ankle, knees, hands, and wrists (I also have tendonitis in both shoulders). Whenever I stood up or tried to walk up stairs I would have...
I am a reproductive acupuncturist who has had reproductive challenges. I often find it hard to answer the question when someone asks how long we had been trying. Fertility as it turns out, at least for us, was not a straight line and had so many layers - beyond what I could have imagined going in. Of course as a practitioner, I know those layers: blood flow, egg quality, sperm quality, stress, diet, vitamins,...
I’m 42 years old and I have just given birth to a healthy baby boy. He is the most beautiful baby boy I have ever laid eyes on; ok, so I may be basis, but I’m sure if you saw him you’d agree he’s pretty cute!
