"I have advanced arthritis in my finger joints of both my hands. This condition causes chronic pain and limits my finger mobility. After trying and therapy, ultra sound and even cortisone shots, (ouch!) I had no improvement. I met Victoria at a health fair and booked an appointment for an acupuncture session. Wow! I felt improvement after the very first treatment and am gaining more movement with each follow up session. The pain is also in remission. Victoria is a very warm, receptive and skilled practitioner offering an alternative that really provides results. I highly recommend her services.”

"Victoria has been my acupuncturist since 2007, and her treatments are a cornerstone of my health. I was recommended to her for PMS discomfort, and my first treatment provided such relief that I kept going back! Over the years other things have been treated as they pop up, and I believe that Victoria’s knowledge, caring, and intuition have contributed to my overall health.”

"Iwas diagnosed with Painful Bladder Syndrome by my doctor two years ago. She informed me that she had few options to offer relief, one of which is Botox injections to the bladder that could result in having to use a catheter for the rest of my life. The other option is daily medication. I’m an otherwise healthy and fit young woman so neither option was sounding good to me. I read on the internet that some people had success using acupuncture for treatment of this condition. It worked for me instantly and with regular treatment I’m pain free.”
"Iwent to see Victoria about my stooped Parkinson’s posture and some arthritic pains. Her acupuncture treatments were a great benefit in dealing with the posture issues, arthritic pain and fatigue due to lack of sleep. Thank you Victoria for all your work and professional yet caring manner!

"A cupuncture helped me a great deal with chronic nerve pain and anxiety. Victoria is a warm, compassionate person who is highly skilled in her profession. I have recommended her to several people and still see her occasionally for relaxation–my other issues have disappeared. Thank you Victoria!”

"I have suffered from chronic pain and swelling for 19 years. I started seeing Victoria when I was injured in an accident. She has helped me greatly to heal. I especially appreciate her pleasant ,caring personality. She goes above and beyond to make sure you get the most out of your treatment. I’m grateful for all the help and knowledge she has given me.

"I have been a happy client of Victoria’s since 2011. Over the years I have benefitted from her treatments as she combines extensive knowledge and expertise with her kind and healing spirit. Each appointment starts with a check in and she asks what I would like to focus on. If I’m not sure she is able to assess my thoughts and symptoms and somehow provide exactly what I need. Acupuncture has helped recover and cope with a variety of health concerns such as hormone imbalance, PMS, headaches, fertility and overall wellbeing. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else but Victoria. My spouse and friends have also become regular satisfied clients of hers. Thanks for everything Victoria!”

"They say: "If one has a problem, one should ask. If one never asks, one always has a problem." I had a problem for nearly five months, until I asked.
Meniere's Disease is a disorder of the inner ear that causes episodes in which you feel as if you're spinning (vertigo), and you have fluctuating hearing loss with a progressive, ultimately permanent loss of hearing, ringing in the ear (tinnitus), and sometimes (actually, all the time) a feeling of fullness or pressure in your ear.
After I started to lose my hearing I finally told Victoria about the problems I had been having.
to me about a musician who was also experiencing similar symptoms who had positive experience after some treatments. I had three treatments over one month and during that time, my symptoms changed in very positive direction. After several months of accommodating vertigo and tinnitus that would likely aggravate the Dali Lama, I have found that the treatments have helped ease and mitigate the symptoms in a way that I
am able to function again.
I began to see Victoria in 2015 for help with rehabilitating my shoulder, and her knowledge, skills and abilities provided me with not only pain relief, but assisted me with my rehabilitation. At this time, I was working on my BA at UVic. Around exam times, when I needed emotional grounding and increased mental clarity the most, Victoria knew that she could help me. And she did.
Everybody should discover acupuncture, and the other healing arts and skills that Victoria is attuned to and blessed with. Do not let your experience with Western forms of medicine prohibit you from discovering that there are other types of treatments available.

"I have had shoulder issues and trouble calming my mind. I am always on the go, overthink everything and am constantly restless. After my first session with Victoria she gave me hope my shoulder pain could be fixed! And it has reduced significantly in pain with weekly treatments, to the point where it doesn't bother me for weeks at a time! Such relief. On top of that, almost every session, I am able to relax so deeply with the perfect placement of needles, that all of a sudden I wake up and what felt like 5 min of drifting off was an hour of me out cold! It is the most relaxing thing I do all week and I look forward to my session as my escape from the world. I don't know how I would function without Victoria's help. It has changed my life for the better!"

"A fter many years of being healthy, I was recently diagnosed with asthma and struggled with some of the symptoms. Acupuncture helped alleviate the discomfort but it was Victoria’s knowledge, positive attitude and desire to help that really made a difference. A combination of acupuncture and acupressure helped me learn to relax again and how to live with asthma without discomfort. Victoria always greets me with a terrific smile and a warm welcome. When I leave after my appointment, the tension in my body is gone and my mind is clearer. Give Victoria a chance to help you .. you will be happy you did.

"I've been a client of Victoria's for acupuncture treatment since 2015. My naturopath recommended that acupuncture would be very helpful and complementary to the treatment plan we had to alleviate the asthma and chronic sinusitis that I have been afflicted with for much of my life. He referred me to Victoria nearly 3 years ago and I haven't looked back. Besides being very relaxing (to the point where I usually fall asleep during treatment), the treatments have been instrumental in keeping my immune system strong and helping to reduce my chronic symptoms. Victoria is a knowledgeable, caring professional, and I would absolutely recommend her.

"I am a cancer patent and Victoria has been helping me with severe pain in my neck and back as a result of the tumor (C3). Not only does the acupuncture help relive the pain it can and does aid in redirecting damaged nerves.
Over the last 30 years of practicing alternative medicine I have received lots of acupuncture, including a treatment with a Tibetan master and member of the Chinese National Council and Geneva World Council of Acupuncture and I do not hesitate to put Victoria's sensitivity in my top 2
Like any other profession, just because one receives the training doesn't make them a master; it's a sensitivity to the needles, their patient and the patient's given situation.
Victoria is a very compassionate person which only enhances her many years experience in the healing medial arts. In my opinion healing is a combination of mind, body and soul; Victoria's acupuncture has become an integral part.

"I have suffered with insomnia for years and have tried many herbal remedies but have avoided prescribed medication. A friend recommended Victoria because she has had very positive results for her insomnia. Victoria is knowledgeable, caring and is very passionate about her profession. She has a very calm, positive nature which is very comforting. I have seen Victoria several times and am starting to see positive results. I do not expect an over the night cure for an infliction I have suffered with for over 20 years but am thrilled with the results so far. Victoria continues to work with me to find the best and most affective cure for my insomnia. The experience is always relaxing and inviting and I am grateful for her help. I do not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family. Thanks Victoria!"

"After my treatment with Victoria I noticed a sense of calm, felt more balanced and was able to tackle jobs I had been procrastinating on! I felt a renewed sense of energy and well being. I highly recommend Victoria for your overall preventative health."
- S.R Victoria B.C
"In 2013 I was referred to Victoria to treat symptoms of Bells Palsy. I was afraid to give acupuncture a try but Victoria's professionalism got me though the first session.
With the continuation of acupuncture treatment I have managed to keep my health
on track - eg. targeting immune system.
Victoria is one of those "happy" people that lights up the room when you see her.
On a number of occasions I have required to reschedule appointments and she
has always been accommodating.
