I reached out to Catherine for fertility acupuncture. Catherine has such a soothing voice and peaceful energy to her. Within a few treatments I started to notice an improvement with my overall health. Better sleeps, regular bowel movements, improved circulation, and most of all my menstruation cycles basically became symptom free. I hadn’t experienced this before and felt it was important to share my experience with acupuncture because there isn’t a lot of conversation around that. For anyone looking to improve their overall health I highly recommend acupuncture.
Update: I got pregnant within 1 month of “trying”. I didn’t expect that to happen to quickly, but I highly recommend acupuncture for anyone trying to conceive!
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.
My daughter and sonare 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.
Thank you for being so supportive over the last 6 months. I look forward to my acupuncture appointments because talking to you and a treatment always makes me feel better. It has been a long and difficult road and I’m thankful that you are on it with me.
