Acupuncture Testimonials

I went to see Lone with a list of non-specific complaints, such as feeling out of balance, overwhelmed, and exhausted, not feeling myself. Lone takes a thorough history and offers a wonderful atmosphere – safe, full of loving-kindness, and dedicated to helping – not to mention a great deal of knowledge and skill. I went to her for acupuncture a number of times. My experience of her and her practice has been positive and uplifting, and I highly recommend a visit.

I highly recommend Lone. I had never had acupuncture before and Lone took the time to answer my questions and always was very respectful to ensure that I understood what was going to happen. I found it not only helpful physically but I also found it very interesting! Lone is obviously passionate about what she does and her desire to help creates a very welcoming and healing atmosphere. I can recommend her to new patients without hesitation.

I came to Lone because I hadn’t slept through the night in 7 years- since some pretty major life traumas. Lone listened so carefully to me and within a few months not only helped me sleep better, but helped me realize I was in charge and could make decisions to change and improve my life. Her listening ear and sincere desire to make a difference did just that. When she realized how deep the issue went and addressed it not only on a medical but personal level, I started sleeping so much better and now sleep through most nights for the first time in 7 years.

When I arrived on your doorstep a little over a year ago, I was at my wits end with a variety of health issues, which included headaches, joint pain, hot flashes and weight gain to name but a few. Thru patient kind investigation and expertly delivered acupuncture treatments I saw the return of my health, wellbeing and my peace of mind. I look forward to our continued relationship and will recommend your services to those who I discover are in needs as I was. Thanks again for all you help and kindness.

Lone’s practice was recommended to me after I received a frustrating diagnosis of IBS. Her treatments have been invaluable in helping me to work towards balance in my lifestyle and health. I appreciate her holistic approach in which she works with clients in developing strategies that go beyond treating isolated symptoms and conditions, seeking instead to achieve balance and overall physical and emotional wellness. Since beginning treatments, there has been a marked decrease in the flare-up of symptoms and I have been better able to identify triggers that make me feel unwell. I have a lot of stress in my job, and the acupuncture has helped me to deal with the stress in a positive way. Immediately after an acupuncture treatment, I feel very relaxed and I always look forward to the increase of energy that follows in the days following the treatment. Lone practices with gentle concern, interested passion and continued commitment towards helping her clients achieve their wellness goals, a rare gift in the medical field.

I sought out acupuncture as I had heard it was beneficial to relieve PMS and menopausal symptoms. I chose Lone because of her background in Chinese medicine. I have been receiving treatments for about a year and a half now, and have noticed huge improvements. I no longer experience such drastic symptoms before and during my period. The bloating, cramping, and mood swings have definitely decreased and some months I have no symptoms at all before my period arrives. I believe that by continuing with regular treatments and being proactive, when menopause does arrive, it will be a gentler experience. Lone is always patient and interested to hear what is happening in your life, and she uses this information to determine the type of treatment, so that you are healed on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. I always leave my appointment feeling better than when I arrived! Lone has been my savior during some very difficult periods of my life.

I first came to Lone with concerns about anxiety and overall malaise. Just before going to see Lone I found myself having severe chest pains when inhaling. The pain was so bad I had to sleep sitting up. My anxiety issues improved within our first few sessions and have since improved considerably. I have not had any chest or breathing pain at all in the last 6 months. An additional issue that, after working with Lone, I am aware contributed in large part to my malaise, was my lack of menstruation due to having an IUD. I am now fully aware of the importance of having a consistent and productive menstrual cycle after realizing and being reminded of how much better I feel when no sort of device or pill is interfering with my cycle. With Lone’s help, I did return to a normal cycle with some flow even with an IUD. Ultimately however, I decided that the negative effects I experienced with the IUD outweighed its benefits and I had it removed. All of the work I have done with Lone has been acupuncture. When we first started I saw her every week, then every two weeks. As I began to feel better I started to see her about every 4 or 5 weeks but have discovered that I am best supported by a treatment about every three weeks. After being under Lone’s regular care for the last year and half, I find that I am in a place of peace, calm and profound clarity. As I told her recently, I feel as though I am a piece of clay that has just been centred on the potter’s wheel, ready to be pulled into a lovely vessel. I should also note, that I recommended Lone to two other women, both of whom had extraordinarily positive experiences with her, too. Thank you for helping me find my centre, Lone!

Pregnancy Testimonials

My massage therapist recommended that I see Lone for Acupuncture during my second trimester of pregnancy. It was unbelievable at how it relieved heartburn, nausea, back pain and helped me relax after a stressful day of work. It also brought me peace of mind knowing that it helped prepare my body for childbirth. Lone was incredibly knowledgeable and skilled, and I always felt safe and well cared for during her treatments.

When my husband and I were 37 weeks pregnant, we were still researching how to turn our baby to avoid back labour. We were also researching pain management so that we could take control of our labour, avoiding epidural and c-section when the time came. I was studying yoga positions for labour, and we were learning hypnotherapy techniques. Lone offered us a workshop to teach us pressure points to use, as well. I was in labour for 45 hours, and without a doubt, the acupressure helped tremendously with the pain and to keep me focused. We had to rely almost exclusively on acupressure to get us though. In the end, we did turn the baby during labour using acupressure. The acupressure got us through labour without pain medication. We are both so grateful to have learned such a useful skill!

Lone, you were simply incredible and I appreciate all the help that you gave my family pre and post natal. I highly recommend you to any mother looking for an addition to their birth team. Your down to earth nature combined with professional knowledge of acupuncture treatment helped me tremendously. You made me feel very comfortable in sharing my expectations for motherhood and worked to focus on my intentions. Thank you again for all your help and I will be coming back to see you for the next baby 😉

LR, Edmonton

have been a patient of Lone’s since the fall of 2008. I turned to acupuncture as an option to help me with first trimester symptoms in both of my pregnancies; with the first was uncomfortable bloating, indigestion and constipation, and the second was severe nausea and heartburn. I really appreciated how we spent just as much time talking about me, my feelings and my health as we did on the actual treatments. Her specific treatment plans during the first few months of both pregnancies helped me immensely, and allowed me to find peace and appreciation during such a special time. I am due with my second in January 2012 and plan to start my visits again in December to prepare for the birthing process. I know both me and my little one will feel supported by Lone’s involvement.

The little man has grown a lot and is a very relaxed, healthy and happy baby. When people mention how friendly and relaxed he is, I always tell them that he is a “accupunctured” baby, as I am sure that all your wonderful treatment during pregnancy helped to give us such a relaxed and happy little man. Even though only once a month, these accupuncture sessions are one of my fondest memories of pregnancy, and I always remember how with each appointment, the days got colder and I grew bigger but I always felt so good after your treatment.

During the preparation for labour I felt that acupuncture helped support the natural transition my body was going through. I could feel the shifts taking place in the last 3 weeks leading up to my baby’s birth. My labour progressed very smoothly and naturally.

I was almost 6 months pregnant and nearly immobile. I was walking like I was in a suit of armor thanks to some unexpected back tension– plenty stiff, plenty painful– and it was seemed like I’d have to take my maternity leave much earlier than I’d planned. I had never tried acupuncture before, but had heard amazing things about Lone and her practice. Folks weren’t kidding. After my first session with Lone I was walking like the Tin-man after his first oiling. Not to mention, I was refreshed and energized. What kept me going back to Lone was how she helped me prepare for the delivery of my baby and helped maintain my health and energy during the rest of my pregnancy. I wanted to have as natural a birth as possible, and when the day came, I felt like I was mentally, physically and emotionally ready for the big moment.

The miscarriage of my first child was going on its fourth month or so at the time I went to see Lone, and the allopathic system was threatening invasive procedures to finalize it. This miscarriage resolved within 24 hours of my first session with Lone. I conceived again within a few months of beginning work with Lone. That was the end of our work as I went on immediate bed rest for high risk pregnancy, had a healthy baby girl. I credit Lone’s intervention with enabling my successful pregnancy and the resolution of my unsuccessful one, and I can’t thank her enough. She is a devoted practitioner and a helpful member of any extended care team.
