Afraid of needles?

Posted by Linda Wu under: .

“Dr Linda Wu was recommended to me by a friend. I was interested to learn that she was a medical doctor, in China, and also a registered acupuncturist here in Alberta. I feel this gives her an advantage in treating her patients.
I was immediately impressed when I met Dr.Wu and she told me she could treat my symptoms (which she did, very succesfully) but that I must see my family doctor for a couple of tests to get to the root cause of the problem. I did this and found that I needed a small surgery to completely resolve the situation.
I am very afraid of needles – the ones for injections and drawing blood, so how could I possibly have acupuncture ? Well, to my surprise, the needles are very thin and hardly noticeable once inserted. I feel the treatment is, in fact, very relaxing and the time passes quickly, as I listen to the quiet background music.
Dr Linda Wu is very reassuring, and sensitive to ones needs and preferences/concerns, and so I heartily recommend her to you.”

    Acupuncture Treatment for Fertility

    My husband and I had been trying to conceive our first child for over a year. Dr. Linda Wu came highly recommended to us by a friend who had faced similar difficulties. During my first consultation, she told me stress was likely the major contributing factor to our problems. I was impressed with her overall knowledge and confidence on the topic of fertility, and began seeing her regularly for a couple months. Dr. Wu’s obvious experience and technique made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Sure enough, we were blessed with the conception of our beautiful daughter shortly after.

    We soon wanted to expand our family; however my hormones were still off-balanced from the birth of our daughter. I went to see Dr. Wu once again and explained to her my inconsistent monthly cycle, ovulation bleeding, which was all accompanied by very low energy levels. She recommended Chinese herbs, and began my treatment immediately. Within a month, my hormones were regulated, I had my first normal cycle, and my energy levels were back on track. I truly felt wonderful. To my surprise, we conceived our second child the same month!

    I will continue to see Dr. Linda Wu in the future. She helped my reproductive system without the use of invasive procedures or chemical drugs, and has improved my overall wellness. I highly recommend her acupuncture treatments.
