Fiona I can't thank you enough. About midnight last night the pain and swelling in my ankles was basically gone. WOW and right now they are like normal ankles again, still a bit tight but not swollen and I can walk without cringing. You can do magic and I really can't find enough ways to say how grateful I am for your gift of a pain free day. I will be back and it will be as soon as I can make it.

This place is fabulous! I felt welcomed immediately. I was so comfortable that I was able to open up and really communicate what I was feeling and express what my body needed from acupuncture treatment.

The staff are lovely and very professional. Fiona and I discussed my concerns and she walked me thru the process. She made sure I was aware of each step. I was made very comfortable in one of their treatment tables and let Fiona work her magic (i.e. place the needles). Once placed, I was left to just let them work. This was a wonderful experience!

As a massage therapist I'm prone to overuse injuries. I have developed frozen shoulder syndrome from overworking and have tried many different therapies to help with the pain, massage, physio etc. All worked to a certain degree on the muscle tensions around the joint but the limited range of motion and stabbing pain in the joint itself has remained. On a friend's recommendation I figured I would try acupuncture and found Fiona's clinic which is close to me.
I booked a private session instead of going the community route (you get your own room) because it was my first ever acupuncture session. I'm not afraid of needles but had to ask if it was going to hurt anyway. She said it shouldn't, as the needles just go under the surface of the skin and it depends on the style of the acupuncturist. As promised it didn't hurt at all, she used about 20 needles in my shoulder area and then I had about 30 minutes to lie down, relax and listen to very soothing music. A one point I could actually feel the pain leaving my shoulder area.
When the time was up she came in to remove them and then did some cupping in 4 or 5 spots to increase blood flow. I left feeling good, I could feel the effects immediately and 2 days later I can move my arm in ways I haven't been able to in months.
I'm definitely going back again to keep it up and have the utmost respect for Fiona and her abilities! Very recommended!!

The eczema that I've struggled with my whole life was getting quite intense, so I decided to try acupuncture with Fiona, and I'm so glad I did! The space is a friendly, peaceful and comfortable space and Fiona is very knowledgeable as a TCM practitioner. Not only did I notice results with my eczema after the first treatment, but Fiona also worked on some other related symptoms I'd been dealing with and those noticeably improved as well. With each treatment, things got better and every visit was a wonderful experience. I noticed Fiona took some time after my first session to do a little bit more digging into my symptoms and add to the treatment plan – she definitely cares about her clients! I will for sure continue to go back for tune-ups. I also applaud Fiona for creating a space that makes this kind of healing more accessible with the sliding scale rates.

I had the most relaxing acupuncture treatment with Fiona. She is welcoming and friendly and the space exudes serenity. I am so excited to return for my next acupuncture treatment.

Fiona is the best! I always have such a positive experience during my appointments. I can honestly say that I feel my overall health is improving under their care. I am more rested, relaxed, and, as a sufferer of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Panic Disorder, I feel that most of my symptoms have improved since beginning treatment with acupuncture and reiki. Thank you!

I had an exceptional treatment from Fiona yesterday. She is professional while still thoughtful, gentle and kind. I left my session feeling so relaxed and took the plunge today to book another for next week.

I have absolutely loved going to the clinic. I had never done acupuncture before and went in to deal with some lower back pain. Fiona is incredibly knowledgeable and asked insightful questions to figure out the treatment that worked best. After only two sessions for my back I’m feeling nearly back to normal. The atmosphere is so cozy and relaxing, it would be worth the price just to go have a little mid day nap in her clinic! I 100% recommend Fiona and her team to anyone looking for alternatives to other treatments and looking to enhance their knowledge of wellness.

"Fiona is an amazing acupuncturist, and sets up a beautiful healing space. I felt great when I was seeing her regularly, so sad she left Vancouver. If you live in Kamloops, I highly recommend her!"
