"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,...

Hello everyone. I was asked to share my story so others could learn about some of the non mainstream treatment options to help with fertility. I couldn't deny the request because I do know the feeling of not being alone and renewed hope when you browse through the numerous testimonies, to read something that is similar to what you are experiencing. Been there and done that.. So here it is...
Acubalance's Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) HAS CHANGED MY LIFE!! Really it has!
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.
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!!!
