Amazing results. I had acupuncture treatments from my physio in the past for lower back issues and it really hurt so I was super nervous about trying it again. Skye was incredibly gentle. Not only was the treatment not painful i left feeling the most relaxed I had felt in years.

Skye helped get my irregular cycle back on track, balance my hormones, and provided me with all the information I needed to help become pregnant as soon as possible. Within a few months I became pregnant and made a friend. Skye is kind, caring, and shows interest into your own life. I will definitely be back for all other symptoms that arise in my life. Thanks again!!

Two of my good friends had become pregnant after seeing Skye for just a few months. I was skeptical about acupuncture and Chinese medicine but after having another miscarriage I felt I had nothing to lose. From the get go Skye put my mind at ease. She is extremely knowledgeable and I was surprised at how much she investigated into my health and pointed out things that my doctor's just ignored. After a few months of treatment I was feeling better than I had in years. I conceived and and I am now full term in my pregnancy. I don't think I would of got here without Skye. She is truly amazing

For close to 20 years I have suffered anxiety. Over the last two years, anxiety has started to take it's toll on my body causing frequent and severe tension headaches, facial numbness and this past summer a "globus sensation" in my throat (it felt like I had a lump in my throat everytime I swallowed, only I didn't); my medical doctor told me it was caused by the severe neck tension. For me, the globus was my body's loud message that I needed to deal more effectively with the underlying cause: anxiety. I began to see Dr. Van Munster who, through acupuncture, chinese herbs and dietary changes, helped put my body back into balance. I can honestly say that of the treatments I have sought (including therapy, antidepressants (which made it worse), massage) she has made the greatest difference in my life. Of course, I sill have episodes of anxiety. But they are not as a severe which I attribute in part to my energy levels; I now have the energy to deal more effectively with issues as they arise. I also experience less brain fog, a symptom which itself can cause anxiety! I will continue to use my other tools (therapy, meditation). And now, acupuncture with Dr. Van Munster is a big part of my treatment plan. So thank you Dr. Van Munster!! Your knowledge, dedication, kindness and professionalism has made such a difference in my life.

I can not recommend Skye enough. I came to her in a mess. I was experiencing severe Anxiety with panic attacks. After the first treatment I felt more relaxed but after the fourth treatment I can not believe how much her treatments helped. I feel like my old self again. I no longer feel anxious. She provided me with tools to continue feeling better including diet and lifestyle advice.

Skye is a amazing Doctor, healer and human being. She helped me deal with chronic pain after surgery and get my life back on track. She listens and does her homework to find the root of the problem. After being a bit skeptical I am now a big supporter of the healing power of acupuncture.
