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 know that how you are with me is how you are with all of your patients…; however, I really want to say thank you for all the advice, support and frankness that you offer to me. I appreciate you so much and you have been an amazing support up to this point. Thanks again, life coach!
My cycle failed to return back to normal after being off the birth control pill for over 2 years. All of my test results came back as normal so I decided to try acupuncture. I was experiencing very irregular cycles (anywhere from 25-50 days) and painful periods with spotting all throughout the cycle, something I never had prior to going on the pill. After a few months of acupuncture, my cycle had become regular and my cramps nearly disappeared. It has been such a great experience, I would highly recommend it! – J. K.
If you are looking for the best acupuncturist for fertility, look no further. Christina is the person you should be going to and you will absolutely love her passion, care, and work integrity. I have been struggling with recurring polyps and for almost three years, I went through 2 surgeries to get them removed, but unfortunately, it ended in countless disappointments with negative pregnancy tests. Just when I was devastated that the doctors told me my polyps returned and that I needed another surgery + IVF given my polyp’s rate of growth, Christina gave me hope. Christina is realistic, empathetic, and a gentle guidance that’s there to nudge you to go a little further when you are feeling defeated. 2 months into my acupuncture session with her, I found out that we’re expecting a baby. I am beyond thankful for Christina’s support and her knowledge in the fertility field. She is truly an intelligent guide who cares about the well-being of her patients. This is rare to find in an individual and you’ll be lucky to have her on your fertility journey.
Thank you so very much for this class. In this busy world it provided much needed time to ground myself and find some inner strength and peace. It would be great to have classes that continue to follow one throughout their pregnancy. Thank you to both of you! – D. R.
