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 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, professional skin care.  I am so used to putting things on top o

Dr. Funk Single-Handedly Helped Me More Than Any Other Practitioner in Any Other Field

Dr. Ryan Funk offers a knowledgeable, unique, and heartfelt approach to his acupuncture practice. After years of visiting many doctors, Dr. Funk single-handedly helped me more than any other practitioner in any other field (and not just in getting me over a fear of needles!). To be honest, at first I did not see how an acupuncturist would be able to help my symptoms. However, thankfully I respected the advice to see Dr. Funk, which was a life-changing event.
