Yeast Infection:
For years I suffered from yeast infections. I went to the doctor who would prescribe the creams and the Diflucan pill. The symptoms did clear up but then they would be back and when I asked the doctor if there was an actual cure so I wouldn't get it anymore I didn't get a straight answer.
I started with the acupuncture and I started a sugar and bread free diet. Since I started the acupuncture I have not had a recurrence of the infection. I have also noticed that I have a lot more energy and when the different colds and flu's go around work I don't catch anything. I would recommend this to someone who is suffering from reacurrant yeast infections and don't forget to stick to the sugar free diet.

Chronic Urinary Tract Infection: Feb 2013

I had been suffering from continuous bladder and urinary tract infections for many years. I also suffered from severe incontinence. My urologist recommended a sling be inserted around the neck of my bladder to help with the incontinence. This was a major surgical procedure. The constant bladder infections were treated with almost constant antibiotic use; not healthy for the rest of my body! As a result of the surgery I had serious side effects. My bladder was not emptying and it was also going into spasms making life very difficult. I was put on a regime of prescription medications as well as my regular antibiotics. My urologist told me that if the medicine did not work I would have to learn to use a catheter. I was 44 years old and pretty much at a loss at what to do next.

In March 2008, I had no idea what to expect when I first came to see Dr. Sarah Quan at the Acupuncture & Herbs Wellness Clinic. I found her to be gentle and very easy to talk to. I was so scared but she quickly put me at ease. I fell asleep during my first treatment! It was painless with no side effects! I started going to see her twice a week; a 3 hour round trip for me but it was worth it! After the first week (2 treatments) my bladder stopped going into spasms. After 2 weeks (4 treatments) I stopped taking all my prescription medicine. Dr. Sarah had put me on some herbs and along with regular acupuncture treatments I felt so much better. I continued to go for acupuncture twice a week for quite a few months and the change in my overall health was amazing! I was off of antibiotics for the first time in years! I regularly went for urine tests and they continued to be negative. The condition of my skin improved, I no longer was bloated and had no pain anywhere. In hindsight I realize that I should have seen Dr. Sarah before I consented to having the surgery. I am so very grateful to her for all of her compassion during those first 6 months that I was her patient. She gave me hope that I could have a normal working bladder when the urologist didn’t think it was possible.

I have continued to see Dr. Sarah once a month. In 2010 my husband and I moved to Calgary and it sure is nice not to have to drive 3 hours for acupuncture treatments although I would do it if I had to!

Over the past 5 years I have also received treatment for sore muscles in my back, shoulder and neck. I am now receiving acupuncture for symptoms of perimenopause including hot flashes and insomnia, which has been much relieved. I will continue to take whatever she recommends. I trust her totally with my overall health and have made my family doctor aware of my ongoing relationship with Dr. Sarah. She is such a caring person and I have always felt comfortable talking to her about any issues that come up. Thank you Dr. Sarah for everything!

Spastic Bladder and Frequent Urination: Feb 2013

A long standing (28 year) history of dealing with a spastic bladder/frequent urination was progressively getting worse, I decided to try acupuncture. I had been referred to Dr. Quan from some family members. To date, I have had 5 treatments. I started noticing improvements in my condition by my third treatment. Instead of voiding every 1-2 hours, it is now averaging every 2-3 hours. The sensation that one has to void also has diminished. I am quite confident that with more treatments, this condition will improve.

The treatment rooms are a sanctuary in a busy day. I look forward to my appointments with Dr. Quan. At each appointment Dr. Quan shares her knowledge of acupuncture with me, for which I am very grateful. It has been an enlightening experience.

Dr. Quan and her staff provide a very professional, informative, serene, and welcoming environment. I am so pleased with my results to date that.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Quan.
