When I discovered Lorne’s approach at Acubalance, it was such a relief to be treated as a whole person after encountering the detachment of the Western medical approach. I had been trying to conceive for three years when I decided to try acupuncture after having some small spots of endometriosis removed. My gynecologist had told me that I had a 6-month window of opportunity to achieve pregnancy if this was the problem. I wanted to optimize my chances by visiting Acubalance. Even after my initial tentative email to Lorne, I felt like I had made the right decision as he promptly returned my message with a phone call. This small act made such a difference after the level of poor service I had experienced when trying to contact specialists before.
The acupuncture, supplements, and herbal treatments I received for almost a year, I believe, cleared a lot of negative energy that I had accumulated on the journey to create a family. Prior to the treatments, I had always experienced painful menstrual cramps and irregular cycle length with “in-between” spotting. Now my periods are pain-free, and regular, and feel balanced. So I got the benefit of having both emotional and physical treatment. I believe Lorne has a gift to heal others with his gentle, calm, and respectful approach.
Although I have not yet conceived a child, I do not consider my experience at Acubalance a failure. In fact, it has been a life-transforming experience. I feel that I have learned so much about how to integrate the mind and body in order to approach life in a centered way instead of trying to control it. I would not hesitate to recommend treatments with Lorne, as he is a remarkable individual who helps facilitate wellness by treating you compassionately as an individual.
