Dr Clara helped me manage to leave all the medication, stress and gave me peace of mind"If you are considering acupuncture for any reason, Balance Health is the place to go with nice atmosphere and supportive people. After losing pregnancies me and my husband were hopeless and helpless could find our way forward. Although so desperate we were still trying to look for any natural way to conceive, before any less natural option getting pregnant.
That’s when Balance Health and Dr Clara Chan came. Dr Clara helped me manage to leave all the medication, stress and gave me peace of mind. Clara’s persistence and support played key role in preparing my body and soul to be ready to carry our baby till his birthday! ,
A year after starting my visits with Dr. Clara, we welcomed our beautiful baby boy Levi into our lives and we could not be happier with the guidance and kindness from Clara during this challenging time in our lives. "
Dr. Clara is a cheerful, friendly, bright person and she always brightened up my mood when I was worried of my menstrual health."I was diagnosed as PCOS and receiving fertility treatment before I visited Dr. Clara at Balance Health. Due to the continuous medication and hormonal injections, my menstrual pain became worse and worse, so I decided to take a break with the fertility treatment and started visiting Dr. Clara. Dr. Clara helped me to improve my menstrual cycle in the first 3 months with acupuncture, moxibustion and Chinese herbs and I felt a big improvement in my menstrual pain. After 3 months of treatment, I was not able to visit her for 6 weeks but she prescribed me Chinese herbs to take to maintain my improved menstrual condition. I started visiting her again and after a month, I found out I was pregnant!
Dr. Clara is a cheerful, friendly, bright person and she always brightened up my mood when I was worried of my menstrual health.
Me and my husband never thought that we could conceive naturally, so we are really happy and appreciate the support that Dr. Clara has given us throughout the treatment."
Clara’s been super patient with my queries, and her moral support lifts up my spirit and motivates me to keep improving."Besides the wonderful staff on the front desk, I truly appreciate the expertise and tender loving care from Clara as she works on helping me towards my goal to alleviate the discomforts (and hopefully, to stop the advancement) caused by osteoarthritis as well as other inherent circulation problems. Clara’s been super patient with my queries, and her moral support lifts up my spirit and motivates me to keep improving."
