Testimonials for Alexandra Herold, Reg. Ac.


"I am so grateful to have such wonderful patients.  
Thank you all for your kind words!", Alexandra

"As usual I walked out after my treatment feeling so much better then when I limped in. Thanks so much Alexandra for your care and caring nature. Simply the best."

R. K., Delta

"Alexandra is a healer.   Bottom line.   After a car accident, I was not able to look up or reach with my right arm.   I could not lift my head up at all.  Alexandra has completely and totally fixed this.  Her knowledge and caring coupled with her effective skills as an acupuncturist is a highly effective combination.  And she deeply cares.  She has helped me get rid of horrible headaches, fix my ankle so that I can walk, realign my back, relax my back and neck muscles, help with digestion, and move my head!   A treatment includes Alexandra determining your current needs, acupuncture with needles or laser (needle free) and cupping.   And the needles don’t hurt!"

Marie S., Surrey

"In one word, Alexandra is AMAZING.  I have a number of health concerns that I thought I would have to suffer with for the rest of my life.  My quality of life was very poor.  I have always been hesitant to try acupuncture as I did not like the thought of being poked with lots of needles.  Alexandra was referred to me by one of my doctors and walking in to her office was the best decision I have ever made.  My fear of needles was quickly quashed when Alexandra showed me the option of laser acupuncture.  As effective as traditional acupuncture with no needles.

Alexandra takes the time to get to know her patients so she can provide the very best treatment.  She has many tools and techniques that she uses to focus on whatever the concern is.  She uses various approaches to diagnose and successfully treat many ailments.  I was recently diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and this is why I went for treatment.  Not only has she helped me with both the pain and symptoms of this disease, she has also helped me greatly with my sleep challenges, stress & anxiety and dealing with grief.  Alexandra is warm, extremely knowledgeable and genuinely cares for her patients.  She is a life-saver.

For anyone who is experiencing any type of pain, I strongly recommend that you see Alexandra at her clinic.  She has transformed my life and I am eternally grateful for all that she has done for me."

"I met Alexandra at a clinic and when she left I followed!!! She has helped me trough some very tough times with anxiety and cannot rave about her enough. Amazing and beautiful person and so knowledgeable!"

Island John, Surrey

"Absolutely amazing, I couldn't recommend this place more! I originally went in seeking help for stress and anxiety, and Alexandra not only helped a great deal with that, but also fixed the pain I've had in my knees for so many years, as well as a handful of other health related issues. She's very knowledgeable with all the questions I had about Chinese medicine and acupuncture, and a true professional at what she does."

Justin Gedak, Mission

"I feel like walking on clouds when I leave her place. She has so much knowledge about holistic medicine, wellness and the whole body, its amazing. She is very empathetic and a great listener. You can tell she really wants to help you. I wouldn't miss my sessions with her for anything..."

Jenni Bee, Coquitlam

"I came to Alexandra at 38 weeks pregnant hoping that acupuncture would facilitate a manageable labor and delivery as well as help to relax me going into labor.  Although I went 11 days passed my due date, I definitely believe that the treatments provided by Alexandra helped to keep me relaxed and lead me to what was a very speedy and relatively easy labor and delivery of my daughter.  Alexandra was so kind and sincere during my treatments and she was very knowledgeable, answering all of my questions.  I have recommended her to many pregnant women while speaking at my Doula's pre-natal classes and will continue to do so.  I look forward to seeing Alexandra again soon!"

Amanda Smith

"While I was in the office for Chiropractic treatment, I noticed a pamphlet about the use of Cosmetic Acupuncture as an alternative to face-lift surgery. 
I couldn't believe how quick the results were! Within couple treatments, I was re-energized, far more consistent emotionally and very much lifted in myself. The procedure took about an hour, but it was an hour in which I was totally relaxed.
Would I recommend this procedure to my friends? Yes I would and I have. As we get older, we try so hard to reverse the damage of our years and often want a quick solution; but so often the solutions that give radical results are accomplished through radical procedures. Why not opt for a healthy, non-invasive opportunity to look and feel better without surgery or prescription medication?
After a few sessions of Cosmetic Acupuncture my skin was much brighter and clearer and firm. My friends commented how well I looked and I felt more confident. I noticed that the lines were less defined and that my complexion was less oily. I am so pleased with the results, I can't wait to have more sessions. To think I was considering Botox, well now I have a natural alternative and I am sticking with this! Thank you very much Alexandra!!!!"

"Just before I began treatment with Alexandra I had just had my 5th knee surgery. Third one on my left knee. I have struggled with pain, stiffness and swelling in both my knees and in particular my left knee. After receiving a combination of weekly massage and quarterly treatment of acupuncture, I have had relief from all 3 of the noted symptoms. In fact, 12 weeks after my 1st acupuncture treatment I ran a half marathon.
Treatment has allowed me to train longer and harder without having to "gut it out". I am still running and training full time for my next half marathon. I find the treatments relieve my symptoms for 10-12 weeks.
Without Alexandra's help I know I would not have been able to run the required mileage to complete a 13 mile run.  Thanks Alexandra."
Alex Pantelakis, North Vancouver

"I was personally referred to Acupuncture and Cupping therapy through a very strong personal recommendation of my wife. I had previosly experienced Cupping therapy in Russia, and was very excited to hear that someone so qualified, well rounded and experienced was delivering it in the White Rock / South Surrey area, too.

The treatments performed by Alexandra have offered me freedom from pain that I experienced in my upper shoulders, back and neck areas. The relief has been significant, and I can only discern that the "knots" in my shoulders have been alleviated due to the combination of Acupuncture and effective Cupping massage performed.

For me, Acupuncture effectively treats my chronic pain with no side effects. More importantly, during the sessions and when I leave Alexandra's office, I feel completely relaxed, without pain and energized. I am grateful for this therapy and encourage it's continued work.

Would I recommend it to others? Certainly. I'ld also add that the practitioner matters so much. Alexandra's energy, good will, presence, holistic understanding and faith play an incredibly important part in the application of this therapy and healing."

Pavel Saourine, South Surrey, BC

"Alexandra has applied acupuncture on me many times. She has helped me with pains in my shoulder, my thumb and knee.
The pain in my knee is related to arthritis, which also makes my knee joint swollen. Many times when I came to see Alexandra I felt discomfort and weakness in my knee, but after every treatment I was able to walk much better and with less pain.

Most recently I came to see Alexandra after I injured my arthritic knee due to a very bad fall accident. My knee was extremely swollen and painful. I was not able to bend the leg or to put any weight on it. Already after the first acupuncture session I felt a huge improvement! When I got up the next morning, I nearly couldn’t believe how much the pain and swelling were decreased. Only 2 more treatments and one week later I was able to go back to work. Even my doctor and my physiotherapist were a stunned by such a fast healing response.

Thanks to Acupuncture and Alexandra’s good care I was able to return to work more quickly, I experienced less pain and healed much faster than expected. I enjoy my visits with Alexandra and I only can highly recommend her."

Shannon Tardif, Burnaby

"Alexandra is very experienced in what she is doing. We always enjoy her company and her treatments are amazing. Michael and I feel so relaxed after her massages. I often have a sore back and nothing seems to help, but Alexandra knows what to do. She always finds the right spots. She is using different oils and has some special treatments like cupping, which I highly recommend. What I really like is, that she will come to your home. That's a very good service, especially if you are a Mom with a little baby. It's a pleasure to know her and her magic hands!"
Simone and Michael Maack, Port Moody

"The healing hands, the wide knowledge of various health issues, the positive and friendly attitude and the willingness to help others are some of the characteristics of Alexandra which we really appreciate and recommend. The various techniques she uses, such as massage, acupressure, cupping, taping are all very helpful and they ease the pain and heal also other symptoms. Personally, I really appreciate the fact that she has a sound knowledge of a wide range of health issues; even about my children’s sicknesses I can consult her, she will go out her way to help. She is a very pleasant person who knows what she is doing…therefore, we decided to take her back with us to Germany…just kidding ;-) "
