Cecil- I wanted to thank you for taking the time with me on Tuesday to make me feel like someone is finally in my corner and rooting for me – that means a lot.
Feel So Blessed
I peed on the pregnancy stick this morning, and it is positive! Thank you Cecil!!! We are so excited and feel so blessed.
Support and Guidance
Hi Cecil, Just wanted to thank you again for your support and guidance in helping us conceive. We are now happily 17 weeks pregnant and have heard the heartbeat a couple of times. I plan to come back for acupuncture before delivery.
Going Above & Beyond
Cecil, we want to express our gratitude not only for your services but for going above and beyond to support us! Thank you for all your medical advise, responding to all my emails, requesting information from your forum, and of course your emotional empathy and support. We are so grateful to have people like you as part of our support network.
Kelsey is an amazing woman and she has helped me with my chronic pain and other stress related problems.
Acupuncture Helped Get My Labor Going
Cecil, I just wanted to msg you to let you know I had my baby. We are all healthy and home and i just wanted to thank you for all that you did and helping my labor progress. In the end things didn’t exactly turn out as planned, but I’m certain the acupuncture helped get my labor going.
I also appreciate you coming in and meeting me on the weekends to help. I will definitely be recommending your services to other ladies needing help. Again. Thanks! You’re great!
Diet holds the key to my fertility
Dr.Deol, I have exciting news to share – I’m 9 weeks pregnant! I just wanted to say thank you as I truly believe now that diet holds the key to my fertility. I was pretty shocked to get a positive result, but I’m really happy and excited. Thank you again for everything!! So happy I got connected with you!
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything
Dr.Deol, It happened. It actually happened. LIKE WHAT?! Baby baby baby baby baby!!!! So, i’m only 4+3 and now i cant stop shaking and crying. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything.
Thanks so much for all the information Kirti!!! You’re such a great support for me and I’m truly grateful to have met you and to have you in my life!!! You’re the best!!!
Thanks for all your help
Hi Genevieve, Great news! Im 21weeks pregnant! We would like to thank you for all your help as well as Cecil coz we saw him when you are not available. Hopefully I could see you again for more treatments to make my pregnancy easier! Thanks again 🙂
Caring and Supportive
Just wondering if you could pass along to Christina that we ended up having our baby last week. We are doing well. Just wanted to thank you Christina for being there for support through our ivf and then for labour prep acupuncture. She is an amazing person and very caring and supportive.
Acupuncture Has Totally Changed the Game For Me
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!
You Helped Us Achieve
Thank you doesn’t even begin to describe our gratitude to you. What you have helped us achieve is beyond anything we could have dreamed. You kept us laughing through it all. Thank you thank you THANK YOU!
After 14 Months of Trying, I am PREGNANT!
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.

Amazing Results Through Acupuncture
I owe my passion for fertility and gynecology to Cecil and the amazing practitioners at Whole Family Health. I had the pleasure of working at Whole Family Health while I was in Acupuncture school and got to witness some of the amazing results they could get through Acupuncture. If you have ever struggled with menstrual irregularity or have wondered how Acupuncture for fertility could work for you I highly recommend watching this video.
I really don’t think I’d be here without you both. thank you!!
Cecil! I slept awesome last night thanks to your treatment! I almost slept through my alarm actually. haha! Thanks! 🙂

You Made a Difference!
Hi Cecil, Just wanted to thank you for your assistance in acupuncture. I really believe you made a difference! FYI – During my last anti nausea session, you did the chinese pulse technique and you said GIRL with 75% you were right! This pregnancy was so different than the last and I just felt like it was a little girl. We are so thrilled! Just might do this one more time!
Huge Impact You Make
Hey Cecil, I just wanted to send you a quick thank you for my treatment yesterday. I had a terrific, uninterrupted sleep last night and am starting to feel more like myself! You always seem to find just the thing I need and I really appreciate the energy you share with me and the chats we have. I honestly do always feel better after a treatment with you. Anyways, I just thought you should know what an awesome job you do and what a huge impact you make!!

Sleeping Amazingly Well
Hi Genevieve, I wanted to let you know that J has been sleeping amazingly well. She settles easily and calmly at night and sleeps the whole night with no disturbances. If she does wake, the disturbance is very minor and she goes back to sleep right away. We have decided that as of now, she does not need any more acupressure treatments. Thank-you so much for the work you did with her and we will definitely call on you again should the need arise.

Cannot Express How Much You Have Helped
To Cecil!! Our daughter has not stopped moving, singing, talking, and has looked me more in the eyes in the last coupe hours than she has all week. We have been laughing and she has been more adamant about what she desires. Thank you. My baby/big girl is back!! I cannot express how much you have helped and it is only the second appointment.
Thank you, your sincerity and support has been life changing!
Finally Got Pregnant!
I finally got pregnant! It still hasn’t 100% sank in, but I am so damn excited!

Thank You For Always Being Sweet
Dear Christina, I am pregnant!! Thank you for always being sweet. I can’t wait to move forward and when I come in i no longer need fertility acupuncture because this girl is a fertile merteryl!!
Passionate and Intuitive
I would like to thank Devon for completely correcting my menstrual cramps after just two sessions of Acupuncture. She is extremely passionate about her work and very intuitive. Thanks a lot Devon!!

Very appreciative of my time there with Cecil while dealing in fertility issues and my twin pregnancy through 2012 and into 2013.
I’ve Never Felt Better!
Thank you for everything you do. I’ve never felt better!
Words Cannot Fully Express My Gratitude
Hi Christina, although these words cannot fully express my gratitude, I wanted to say thank you for all of the support you have provided me and, in turn, our new little family. I will let you know when I’m able to move around more so I can come by for a visit and you can meet her 🙂
Health Improved Because Of Treatment

Support and Knowledge
Hi Christina, Thanks for all the help and suggestions….I really appreciate your support and knowledge. I am doing well and started ovulating, I’m so happy it’s regulating thanks to you!
Two Embryos With Two Heartbeats
Hi Christina: Had to share this with you…. today was the ultrasound. Well…… two embryos with two heartbeats 143 and 150. I had a hunch cause I feel so yucky, but wow. So different than last time. Thanks so much!
Very Grateful To Your Team
Dear Cecil, Christina and Genevieve: Thank you soooooo much!!!!! I got a positive pregnancy test today 🙂 You guys are so supportive and wonderful. I am very grateful to your team.
Thank You So Much For All You Did
Hi Cecil! I’ve been meaning to email you since the birth of my daughter! I knew you would be curious as to how things went after my last appointment.Thank you so much for all you did and for squeezing me at the last minute! I really appreciate it and I will be back to see you for sure.
Giving Me Capacity to Handle Challenges In Life
I wanted to express my great happiness with the service Devon has provided for me the last month or so. I began my treatments in a period of great stress, and emotional disarray. I have found the massage therapy, combined with other life style changes I am making, to be giving me more capacity to handle the challenges in my life. I wish I had taken this more holistic view earlier in my life, though this is something I can not change. I am very happy that my children are showing interest, as the more they learn about how to handle the challenges of life, the happier they will be.
Ability And Energy To Change My Life
I also wanted to say that without your help, support and skills over the past several months there is no way that I could have even thought about attending this or gone through it successfully. I want to thank you with my whole heart, you are key in me having the ability and energy to change my life. Thank you!
Wowza, that Acupuncture Stuff Really Helps!
Hey Cecil, I just wanted to touch base with you and share the exciting news that I’m 17.5 weeks pregnant with twins! (Wowza, that acupuncture stuff really helps!) I wanted to send a huge thank you to you and Christina. My second IUI was so different from my first (and obviously a LOT more successful) and I truly believe the acupuncture treatments you gave me leading up to the procedure, the day of, and afterwards, were a big part of the difference.
Thanks Again, Life Coach!
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!
Thank-You For Your Support In Our Journey
Hi Cecil, Devon & the Whole Family Health Team! So great news-our first try of IVF/ICSI was successful in the summer! We are 13 weeks pregnant now! We are so elated and feel so blessed. It has been a long, painful, challenging journey but now we feel so blessed and happy. We cannot wait to meet our baby! Alec and I wanted to extend a big thank you to Cecil and Devon, and the other health care providers (Genevieve, Kristina) that took a part and helped us through our IVF process. We appreciate the time spent with us, fitting our crazy IVF schedules into your already busy schedules. Thank you to Cecil for coming in on your day off even, so I could receive treatment. Thank-you for your support in our journey!

Expert Advise and Gentle Support
Hi Christina, Thanks for your expert advise and gentle support! You truly are wonderful.
We Are So Thankful
We are so thankful to Genevieve for her help. I am convinced we would not have become pregnant if it were not for her acupuncture treatments.”
I Found Out I Was Pregnant!
I’ve been seeing Genevieve primarily for infertility since May 2010. I’ve been trying to conceive for 2+ years with no success. My main infertility issue is endometriosis. After receiving infertility treatments for a few months I found out I was pregnant in October! I couldn’t believe it! Genevieve has also successfully treated my heavy cramping during periods as well as anxiety and TMJ (jaw problem). I continue to see her during my pregnancy for nausea, fatigue and anything else that comes up.
Improvement After 24 Hours of Treatment!
The dermatitis on my chin is showing improvement after 24 hours of treatment!! Also I have not been any antihistamine since I’ve started treatments with you which I find is a huge improvement as well. Thank you so much, looking forward to the next treatment.
Peace, Support, and Hope You Provided
Hi Cecil, We have some happy news – we are expecting! I wanted to say thank you for everything you and your team have done to get us to this point. My sister and my mother both asked me what I thought made the difference. I do believe the time I spent with you and your team played a significant part in helping things happen. It was not only the treatments, but also the fact that through seeing you, I developed a more calm and stress free approach to life and to the baby making process. The peace, support, and hope you provided was not something that I could have received anywhere else, and I know it made all the difference. Thanks again for everything, and I will be sure to recommend you to anyone I know!
Yesterday’s Treatment Was Fantastic
Hey Cecil, Just wanted to say that yesterday’s treatment was fantastic. I had virtually no pain until late evening!!!! Awesome! And thank you!!!
Knowledgeable, Caring, and Intuitive
Genevieve is simply excellent! Very knowledgeable, caring and intuitive.
I Will Truly Be Forever Grateful
I honestly can’t thank you all enough for the huge role you played in bringing him into my life; I will truly be forever grateful!
Truly Cares For Patients
I feel Genevieve has helped me so much with different health problems plus I feel like she truly cares for patients.
Treatments Are Working
I have appreciated how thorough Genevieve is with asking questions and explaining what she is doing. I’ve also seen some improvements in a short period of time, which tells me that the treatments are working.
I Have Had Great Results
Genevieve is attentive to my needs and is constantly upgrading her education and skills to improve on her treatment strategies. I have had great results from her treatments.
Respectful and Gentle Approach
Genevieve is very knowledgeable, has a very respectful and gentle approach. She also has great, calm energy and presence about her.
I Feel So Blessed
Genevieve helped us through the whole pregnancy with her ability to aid my body in supporting our pregnancy even when I developed a very large subchorionic hemorrhage in my uterus. She would take my pulses and tell me that my pregnancy was strong and all would be well. She was confident and reassuring to us. I feel so blessed to have had Genevieve as my acupuncturist over the last few years. I believe that it was because of her assistance that we were able to carry to term our sweet baby boy who was born on March 7, 2011. I refer anyone I know who is having difficulties with anything in their body to her to help them be more balanced. I do believe in miracles and meeting Genevieve was an integral part of our miracle baby.
Thank You For Being So Supportive
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.
Thank You For Your Support
Cecil, we cannot thank you enough for all your help, support, and encouragement during our fertility journey. Take care!

No Words Can Express Our Gratitude
There are literally no words that can express our gratitude – we would not have this beautiful babe without you. I’m thankful every day you came into our lives!
- C & R
Good morning, Cecil! One year ago today, I emailed you to start acupuncture, and I wanted to say thank you!
We Are So Grateful To You For The Roll You Played In Our Journey
Hi Cecil, I appreciate all of the treatments, support, and knowledge you shared as we worked through the challenges we faced trying to complete our little family. Though our time dealing with secondary infertility was thankfully relatively short, you were a big part of getting us through it. We are so grateful to you for the roll you played in our journey. I tell people about you all the time and share our great experience with acupuncture whenever I get the chance. Thank you so much!
Dear Cecil, Thanks for all you to do help us, we’d be lost without you.
Thanks For Making A Difficult Time Just A Little Bit Easier

Blessing, Support and Acupuncture
Thank you so much for helping me achieve this amazing blessing in my life…Emry. I really believe none of this would have been possible without the help of acupuncture. I will forever be thankful and grateful! Thanks for our talks and all your support.
