Overall my experience with Whole Family Health and specifically Christina Pistotnik has been amazing! I highly recommend them to anyone on the fence about seeking out support. More details below if you’re interested… I first contacted Whole Family Health with hopes they could help me with fertility. I was connected with Christina and started with virtual appointments due to COVID (May 2020). Christina answered my questions with clarity and understanding, she followed up with an email helping me know what to expect in the upcoming weeks/months. After starting acupuncture with her in June 2020, I would contact her with questions around my menstrual cycle and how to interpret doctors notes or test results. Trying to conceive was frustrating and confusing for the first year. Once I connected with Christina it was much easier. She is always prompt to reply to emails between appointments. At appointments she listens attentively and answers all questions clearly. She truly made our journey to conception so much easier. Throughout my pregnancy I continued to follow her suggestions for herbal supplements and acupuncture. I continued to ask questions and use her support and guidance to help. There are so many new things throughout pregnancy, it is so helpful knowing you have someone so knowledgeable and professional in your former. As I went into labour I knew I was as prepared as I could be with the pointers and information from our sessions leading up. Now with my newborn I continue to know I have Whole Family Health to turn to with any questions that arise.
I am so fortunate to have found Christina to be my acupuncturist. Christina has effectively aided me with a number of issues. I find her to be very professional, knowledgeable, dependable, punctual and passionate. What strikes me most about her and her craft is her openness and her attentiveness. I feel I need to add that she is extremely gentle with the tools of her trade for those that may be nervous about needles. – D.K.
Thank you again for your support. You are one of a kind and will be greatly missed here in Vancouver. You do remarkable work and your compassion, patience and warm heart are a blessing during a very emotional and stressful time. You practice what you preach and are an example of how taking time for you with self-care (I loved your class!) and also being so brave to share your fertility journey publicly has certainly helped to calm our incredible storm. I am so lucky to have met you. Thank you for helping to give me the confidence to proceed! (The confidence to share my story one day will come too…ha ha). – K.
My daughter and son are both rainbow babies after loss and I thank you, Christina, for all of your help with preconception and prenatal acupuncture. I’m absolutely convinced it was a big part of calming my nervous system so we could continue these pregnancies.
I always looked forward to my weekly acupuncture sessions in your clinic and also your empathy, care, and compassion was so helpful for dealing with both my mind and body health during these rainbow pregnancies. – C. D.Read More
