Hello Cecil, I am not sure if it is just a crazy coincidence or if the first appointment I had with you had a massive effect on my body but after 14 months of trying, I am PREGNANT!!! I spent the whole day crying yesterday (like, ugly crying) and in such shock that this has finally happened. So I want to say THANK YOU. Thank you for your practice, thank you for you knowledge and thank you for helping myself (and my husband) with this process. Again, thank you for everything! I have already recommended you to a friend that has been trying to get pregnant for two years as I am so thrilled with my own results.R Read More

I just wanted to share this quick, for those of you struggling with sickness in pregnancy. I’m currently 13 weeks pregnant with baby #3. With 1 & 2 I struggled through HG and honestly wished my babies away. It was awful. With my son (#2) I lost 33lbs between 6-12 weeks pregnant, and I looked like death when the vomiting finally stopped. I went on to have a successful home birth, but promised myself if I ever got pregnant again I would do things totally different. After 18 months of trying to get pregnant (with him), I went for my first round of acupuncture and 3 weeks later I was pregnant. Acupuncture DEFINITELY works for me. So when we found out I was pregnant this time, I immediately jumped into weekly acupuncture. I was feeling gross, but no vomiting. I could still function and parent my other 2 kids. Around 8 weeks I missed my appointment, and the following night, I puked. The day after was 5x. By the time I got in for an appointment 6 days later I was up to 15x a day, and already down 7lbs. Went in for a treatment, and nothing for 3 days. Fast forward to today, 13 weeks, and HOPING I am at the end of puke fest, but I can honestly say I only survived because of acupuncture. This hasn’t been an easy trimester (it rarely is for anyone!) I still vomit every once in awhile, but I am in shock that I am not in the hospital. Acupuncture has totally changed the game for me. If you’re in the Edmonton area, I highly recommend Cecil at Whole Family Health. I don’t know how he does it, but the guy is a friggen wizard. Hopefully this can help another struggling mama!D Read More
