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 Wellness Centre so 3 years ago, I put my fear of needles aside and started coming here.
"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
Acupuncture facial is the most relaxing and restorative facial ever! I had 12 sessions. Christina uses more needles as time goes on and depending on one's specific needs. After a few sessions, you can feel the blood flowing.

I’ve found the Immune Booster IV at TG’IV to be incredibly helpful. In the next few days after each one, I could feel the chest infection lifting out of my system, and I started to really get better. I think it’s because of these that I made a full recovery much faster than I expected. Many thanks to Kali and Acubalance!
Two years ago I developed an acute upper respiratory tract infection while travelling in China. While there I was treated with antibiotics & when I returned home my family practitioner and subsequently an ear, nose and throat specialist prescribed 6 more courses of antibiotics over the next 18 months. The “bug” was definitely persistent and unfortunately every 4 to 6 weeks I would become sick again and again with chronic bronchitis, sinus and ear infections.
Before I tried acupuncture, I have to admit I had no idea what my period was doing. Not only was it all over the place, but I also dreaded the day I had to deal with it, because I would always be in so much pain. Being the type of person who refused to take anything for it, I would suffer through the "contractions" with a hot water bottle on my belly, waiting for it all I end. On top of that, I was an emotional roller-coaster for at least a week before the dreaded day.
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.
