Having come to Canada on a Holiday from Holland. I never expected to end up in Salin Acupuncture Clinic. During my time in Canada. I traveled to Alberta visiting friends along the way. After a few weeks I spend time doing carpentry and did some heavy lifting. Bad idea, as I sprained my lower back and was in severe pain during my return to Vancouver. By that time I had difficulty to function normal, could not bend my back ,or put my socks on. A good friend of mine made the suggestion to try acupuncture to relieve the pain and discomfort . I made a appointment with Salin acupuncture clinic for my first treatment. Doctor Salin ask me a lot of questions and took her time to find out exactly how I had injured my back and where the pain was located. She then proceeded to give me my first treatment, which took about forty five minutes. I made another appointment for my second treatment which I received three days after my first appointment. A few days after my second treatment my back had improved by 80% and I could function again. Doctor Salin recommended a third treatment which I was grateful for, because a few days after my third treatment my back pain was completely gone and I was able to spend the last week of my holidays in Vancouver pain free. What a relief!
I would recommend Salin Acupuncture to anyone with a back problem, or any kind of pain problem. I was impressed by her professionalism and the time she took to locate the problem and cured me.

Thank you so much Doctor Salin!

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
You have done what a series of doctors, physiotherapists and pain specialists could not do. After hurting myself in yoga class and living in constant pain for two years, your acupuncture treatment has finally freed me from back, neck and leg pain. You have given me my life back. I can now exercise and sleep throughout the night again.

I’ve never tried acupuncture before, until my friend convinced me to. I had pain on my left arm for years and I also had lower back pain, due to heavy lifting at work. Taking painkillers helped only for a few hours, then the pain comes back. After my friend told me about Salin, I thought that I should give acupuncture a try. The needles are very small, thin, sterile, and disposed after the first use. (I thought the needles would be bigger and thick like in the movies). I don’t feel the needles at all. I feel something that Salin calls ” a sensation” running from my shoulder to my finger tip. The “sensation” from the needles on my buttocks run through my leg. About 2 hours after the treatment, I felt much better. The next day, the pain is all gone.”

In 1997 I was involved in a car accident which left me with soft tissue damage to my neck and shoulders. Over the years I experienced neck and back pain with numbness down my right arm to the point I could not even lift my arm. I spent years going to the Chiropractor and Massage Therapist. I got temporary relief but no long term relief. After seeing Salin for acupuncture she was able to release a pinched nerve in my neck which had been causing the numbness to my right arm. My neck and back pain doesn’t bother me anymore and I am able to gain true mobility of my neck again. Whenever I feel tightness I will go to Salin for a tune up. I can’t believe the results as I was not a believer of acupuncture until I actually had the treatments.

I would strongly recommend to anyone who has neck or back pain to try Salin Acupuncture.

When I was young I could easily and quickly let go of all bad energy and stress. Through the years I forgot how. I carried too much forward. Thanks to Salin and her specialized techniques in acupuncture, cupping and herbal remedies I can breathe again. I am more relaxed. I am able to clear my mind for the first time in years. I am able to let go of all stress and in doing so I feel like I’m 16 again.
Thank you Salin

At 50 years of age, I have struggled with my weight all my life. I was referred to Salin and have I never seen a doctor this kind. She spend a lot of time consulting with me to find out my life history in order to better understand my medical issues. My family doctor never took the time to find out what might be the cause of my problems. Just give you a pill and send you home. After treatments two times per week for one month I lost one inch from my waist and I feel thinner. Salin consulted with me on my change of diet and lifestyle which resulted in me feeling better than I ever felt in my life. I am able to do things I didn’t do before and my confidence and self esteem is the best it’s ever been. Finding someone who genuinely cares for their patients is hard to find. With Salin I got the best care ever. I would recommend her to any of my family or friends for any of their medical needs.

I don’t like to take Western Medicine if not necessary. When my family doctor said I needed to take the medicine because my blood pressure is too high, I didn’t know what to do. My friend at work recommend me to see Salin. With acupuncture treatments and a custom herbal remedy, my blood pressure was back to normal. She also recommend me to adjust my life style to be healthier. Now I never felt better. Thanks to Salin.

I never thought that Acupuncture could treat Bell’s Palsy. After talking to my mom, she recommends me to see Salin. I was so scared that my face will never get back to normal. My mouth was all droopy and I
couldn’t hold the food in my mouth. My left eye and my nose were also droopy. After my second treatment with Salin I started to see that my face was getting better and five treatments in 2 weeks, my face was back to normal. I was lucky to find Salin who could fix me in such a short time period as my condition could have taken more than 4 months to get better. I would recommend Salin for people who have Bell’s Palsy.

I’ve had eczema all my life. The peak of it is in the summer time, when it is really dry and hot out. Salin prescribed me some herbs to put in a cool bath, and some herbs to make tea out of, on a hot day. The bath herbs really relieved the itch and the tea helped to cool my body down, so my eczema wasn’t as itchy. The tea tastes really good too. I starting taking these herbs when I was 10 years old, and my eczema hasn’t come back since. I also have insomnia, so Salin applied a needle directly between my eyebrows. She leaves it in for about 10 minutes, and I fall fast asleep, and don’t wake up during the middle of the night.
