"When I first heard that Chris was combining Acupuncture with Lymphatic Drainage, I thought I absolutely had to experience this. As an MLD therapist myself for years I knew this would be a powerful combination. Her space is absolutely perfect for healing. In beautiful Edgemont Village, walking up to her gorgeous home and into her completely professional, relaxing treatment room, I knew this was going to be a special place. The facial acupuncture combined with MLD was one of the most relaxing treatments I’d ever had. Absolutely perfect for relaxation, facial swelling, pain, and for cosmetic reasons. I was constantly asked if I had done Botox. I was glowing after one treatment. Truly a healing space, a special treatment combination and an exceptional Therapist."

"Chris is a person who truly cares about what is going on in your body and in your mind. I feel so at ease every time I go see her for treatment. I started seeing her because, while I have had good results from other practitioners, she is one of the best I have seen in treating any neck or body pain.  Chris is always attentive and uses her knowledge to give me the best treatment. I feel like I have come such a long way since I started seeing her.

"I found Chris after visiting 4 other acupuncturists in North Vancouver.  Her approach to me as a "whole person" was refreshing, and I have fully benefited from that for over four years.  Recently we have begun lymphatic drainage, which has been a great success.  My joint movements are greatly improved and the process still incorporates acupuncture as part of the treatment - both at the one session.  I not only highly recommend Chris for her work, but her ability to suggest and explain a variety of options which suit me as the client.  I look forward to my appointments.  Thank you Chris."
