Success Stories



"With it being Thanksgiving in Winnipeg, I was thinking about what I was thankful for with this new life of mine. First off, I am thankful for a happy healthy baby. Secondly, I am thankful for such a wonderful family and support group. At last, I am thankful for you Rebecca Sprintz. If it wasn't for you I wouldn't be thankful for my baby and my family because I would be in a different state of mind still. I appreciate everything you have done for us. I am so comfortable talking to you and you make me feel like my thoughts and feelings are normal- not crazy!  You have taught me and allowed me to learn to love my new life and baby. Nothing can express my gratitude for you and your dad, but thank you so much!"   

-A Milne

Hormones, Increasing Milk Production

“I have been so grateful for Claire Turnbulls acupuncture sessions- she is truly a miracle! She has relieved all of my neck pain from labour and nursing as well as helped to balance my hormones + relieve stress as I was not getting much sleep! Her sessions are extremely relaxing, therapeutic and I feel like a million bucks when I leave. The effects of her treatments are also long lasting and she has custom designed my treatments to meet my specific needs. I love what she has done!!!”


Rheumatoid Arthritis

 ''I first came to see Rebecca Sprintz for 3 reasons:

1) I've tried everything else

2) She never promised to 'cure me' like other failed practitioners have

3) Many co-workers insisted I see her

I've been suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) for 8 years since my first pregnancy with my son. It has spread throughout my body particularly crippling my hands, knees and ankles. I refused to let this slow me down since I have 3 active boys that need me to keep moving, drive them, hold them, cook and clean after them. The very next day after my first treatment I jumped into my coworkers arms and thanked him for insisting I see her (I think I cried a little on his dress shirt). I have only seen Rebecca Sprintz 5 times for acupuncture and I can't believe the relief that I have been feeling. My knees are no longer swollen, my hands have flexibility and the pain is reduced to the point that I was able to take my baby for a 50 min jog (without paying for it the next day)! I haven't been able to this in 8 years!! Rebecca has given me the freedom of ease, movement and independence back. I have become less fearful of the weather storms that we have been experiencing since the barometric change hasn't been effecting me. She is so humble and only smiles at me when I share this ecstatic news with her, as if she already knew this would happen. Thank you Rebecca on behalf of my husband, boys and myself.''



"I have been seeing Claire Turnbull for the past 3 weeks and she has truly saved me! About 3 months ago I became really sick with what the western doctors diagnosed as gastritis. I spent 11 days in the hospital and the last 3 months struggling of severe stomach pain and unable to eat anything without being in immense pain or laying in bed with a heating pad. My aunt referred me to Claire and she has been a life saver. After about 7 sessions my symptoms have almost completely gone which as been incredible as nothing else has seemed to work. Claire is such a humble and genuine person. She makes you feel very welcome and at ease. I recommend anyone thinking about acupuncture as an option for whatever their condition may be to go to Family Acupuncture! Thank you so much for helping me to feel myself again."


Weak Bladder

"I have suffered from a weak bladder ever since my son was born (he is 6 years old now). After only 2 treatments with acupuncture, I have had no 'whoopsies', sneezed 3 times in a row without ramifications, and then jumped for joy (and was still dry)! I’m scared to get overexcited as I assumed that I would have this issue for the rest of my life, but I sure am hopeful!" 



"My husband and I were trying to conceive for five years before I met Rebecca Sprintz. I was starting to give up hope but several friends said I had to see her first. She taught me so much about my cycles and why my body was having difficulties getting pregnant. Her treatments made me feel things in my body I never knew existed and I actually became mindful of when I ovulated. Believe it or not it only took three months after seeing her for me to get pregnant. Thank you so much Rebecca for not giving up on me and making my wishes come true"



"I was suffering from horrible migraines for 1 year straight. They were so consuming and extreme that my doctor put me on Anti-Seizure medication as the side effect reduced migraines. However, he had no intention on ever taking me off these drugs (I am only 24 years old), and the 'other' side effects were worse than the migraine itself: it made me feel foggy minded, took away my appetite, and changed my personality. During my very first acupuncture treatment, she connected the 'why' my migraines started in the first place, and started addressing that instead of the migraine (my doctor never asked me these questions). By the 2nd treatment, the pain went from a 10/10 to a 2/10. I forgot what life felt like to live without pain! By the 4th treatment, my migraines were gone. I forgot to mention that with the help of my doctor and acupuncture, I weaned off the Anti-Seizure meds too. It has been a year since I started acupuncture(I haven't even needed a maintenance treatment in 8 months) and I am drug-free and migraine free."


Sinus Pain

"I was suffering from chronic sinusitis for over a year. It got to the point that daily headaches and pain in my upper teeth were not responding anymore to pain medication. After only one acupuncture treatment I experienced amazing relief, and after the second treatment I am sinus-pain free! acupuncture is amazing. They don't just treat the symptom but look into the root cause of why this issue started in the first place. They offer very helpful lifestyle and diet modifications as well. All the acupuncturists at Family Acupuncture are very knowledgeable and compassionate, making you very comfortable the moment you walk into the clinic. I am now sinus pain free without taking any pain medication."



"For two years I had severe insomnia and after trying everything Western Medicine had to offer I was referred to Family Acupuncture Wellness Clinic and I truly feel like they saved me from becoming severely depressed and medicated. By the time I went to see them I was truly a mess, I was sleeping a maximum of 4 hours a night and even sleeping pills would not help me to sleep.  The only solution my doctor had for me was more pills. After the first treatment I had the best sleep of my life and in only a couple of months I was back to sleeping like a normal person without any drugs. Since then I have grown to trust all of the acupuncturists with many other ailments and choose to see them before I see my regular doctor. They all have this serene presence that immediately makes you feel at ease and I always look forward to visiting the clinic.  I have referred many friends and family members and none have ever been disappointed."



"Between my entire body hurting from Fibromyalgia, exhaustion from Chronic Fatigue, and frequent migraines, my body usually felt horrible, and I was feeling pretty depressed about it. Thankfully, my massage therapist referred me to Rebecca Sprintz. Before Rebecca, I'd have to spend several days a week in bed  from my symptoms - I couldn't work at all, and I only had enough energy to run short errands. Since I started seeing Rebecca, I only have bad symptoms a few days a month! I've improved so much that now I only need to go in for tune-ups, or when I'm having a flare-up. And my energy is so much better that I was able to start grad school! I really recommend Rebecca to anyone dealing with autoimmune issues. I feel like she gave me my life back."


Cosmetic Acupuncture

"I wasn't sure what to expect. I first noticed how good my body and spirit felt after two treatments...peaceful and calm on the inside, lots of energy on the outside. In week three, I began to see a change when I looked in the mirror. There was a smoothness and openness in my face that was new. Subtle but noticeable. The lines didn't capture my attention like they used to do. Someone said to me "You look so fresh"! By week four, many of the small vertical lines around my lips that I really didn't like had disappeared. When I glanced in the mirror it seemed there was a lift in my eye area. They looked less hooded. Someone said my skin looked radiant. I also felt less inclined to wear lip colour whenever I went out. I found myself just reaching for a lip moisturizer. When I noticed this change in habit, I realized that my lips had more colour, they were more vibrant. I liked this! Week five came and as I washed my face in the shower I thought how smooth my forehead seemed. An upward stroke on my forehead was no longer like a bumpy ride on a rutted road! The furrowed horizontal lines that I had felt for as long as I could remember (my mother says I was born with them) were hardly noticeable to my touch. It seems now my face more closely matches the spirit and vibrancy I feel inside. I am grateful for this little correction, as if my system has been given a re-boot and my face reflects this. I would recommend Cosmetic Acupuncture with Claire Turnbull to anyone wishing to feel more vibrant and youthful in both their skin and spirit!"


Autism Spectrum

"My son suffers with a lot of 'spectrum' struggles. He often has debilitating anxiety. One trip to see Rebecca Sprintz and he's able to relax and deal with his daily living. When his anxiety rises he asks to go for another treatment. We have tried many alternative methods but nothings gives such clear results. One fall I asked Rebecca to help my daughter strengthen her lungs. It was the first winter she didn't end up in the hospital with croup."



"Acupuncture has helped me in ways that I never thought possible. I’ve lived my life thinking that I had to tolerate and accept my pain. I went to Family Acupuncture Wellness Clinic for pain management and I honestly had no idea or hope that my pain and ailments would ever disappear. Low and behold, it’s been a year and a half of on and off treatments with acupuncture, and I no longer wake up in the middle of the night from pain, do not start my day off with pain, and am not consumed by it in my day to day life because of it. I went from a 9/10 on a pain scale WITH heavy drugs to a 2/10 WITHOUT any drugs. My wife thanks them. My liver thanks them. And all of my friends and family thank them, because for the first time in a long time, my reduction of pain has allowed me to experience happiness again. My only regret is that I waited this long to try acupuncture. I wouldn’t have believed it had I not experienced it firsthand."



Trigeminal Neuralgia

"I sent my mother for acupuncture to help with her severe and crippling case of Trigeminal Neuralgia. She’s had it for two years and has tried all the mediations the doctor has prescribed with no reprieve. She couldn’t touch her face, brush her teeth or sleep on her side. This pain consumed her. Believe it or not, with only one treatment with Rebecca her pain changed from a 10/10 to a 2/10 immediately. By the second treatment she is 100% pain free. TWO YEARS of mediation and all the awful side effects that come with it and only two treatments?? She told me that I gave her a second chance at life by insisting she comes to this clinic." 


Morning Sickness

"I was experiencing such awful morning sickness. Prescribed medications barely took the edge off, and I was losing hope, strength, and the ability to work. I went to Family Acupuncture both out of pure desperation and because several friends insisted I finally let them help me. After the first treatment, I managed to keep my food down, by the second treatment I had a 50% reduction in nausea, and by the third, I was functional again. If you have morning sickness, don't suffer like I did. PLEASE GO SEE THEM."
