I came to Emma after surgery to remove a spinal cyst. As I arrived, I was suffering from severe pain along my entire spine, neck, ribs and shoulders. I had difficulty lying down on the table, leaving the table, raising my head.
Emma took a detailed history more thorough than any taken by the western medicine community. After initial exploration, Emma discussed treatment options and worked with me to address specific issues as I arrived at each session. Emma kept extensive notes of each treatment, and in subsequent treatments, she was well prepared. She sought feedback from session to session and adjusted treatments to my needs.
Emma exercised compassionate and professional care and was particularly sensitive to the emotional aspects of my suffering with severe chronic pain.
Treatments were designed to relieve suffering and help long term recovery. Using her mastery and skills in acupuncture, acupressure, moxibustion, Chinese medicine and qi gong, Emma facilitated my full recovery and was instrumental in an expansion of my previous capacities. I could feel air in my lungs and a lift in my spirit in addition to relief from pain. Results for me were astonishing.
Today I walk freely and can breathe deeply (even sing) and have full use of all spinal functions. Over the course of several months of treatment, my level of pain has diminished from a level of 100 to a level of 5-10. I believe that I have returned to life, a quality life, from severe suffering and disability because of the loving care of Emma Suttie. I will be forever grateful.
I would recommend Emma Suttie as a health care provider of the highest caliber.
I am delighted to have an opportunity to share my experience as one of Emma Suttie's client's!
My introduction to Emma's skills actually came through my intrigue with the cosmetic application of facial acupuncture - I am a senior and very much interested in "being the best that I can be!"
On meeting with Emma I was quite surprised to discover the amount of details she required and documented in regards to my personal health and physical well being. She explained to me that by being so thorough in her evaluation she is able to ascertain where there are energy blocks that create possible problems for her clients, she takes extensive notes at each session and utilizes this through coordination and application of her skills as a Chinese medicine practitioner ensuring that each treatment is truly a step forward in the healing of her clients. I considered myself to be a truly healthy individual and was truly surprised when Emma began quite skillfully peeling back the layers so to speak with an extremely amazing talent of true empathy and deep intuitive abilities to discover the actual reason that I was experiencing considerable difficulty in sleeping through the night.
My sessions with Emma were then patterned to accommodate my cosmetic acupuncture along with the energy healing that I needed to release the blockage that was interfering with my ability to sleep. The amazing thing was that there is no extra charge for this additional service! Emma's integrity is truly without question, her ultimate desire is to ensure that she makes every effort to heal her clients in every way possible.
My personal experience and impressions of my sessions with Emma were in a word "profound". For me to articulate the totality of the treatments would be far too detailed for this testimonial, let me convey to you instead that I feel that she gave me a wonderful gift of enlightenment along with the healing to sleep through the night!
I should add of course that the facial acupuncture treatments that I went for originally were quite satisfactory but really became secondary once I realized that I had more important issues to be resolved.
I can quite confidently recommend Emma for her professional abilities, also her kindness and understanding along with her honesty and integrity.
I have a really rare, genetic condition with a lengthy list of symptoms and issues that are very unpredictable. When every other doctor gave up on trying to find something that worked, Emma has always found
a way to treat my symptoms and promote healing. Emma took the time to find out as much as she could about it from me, and did her own research so she could find the most effective ways to treat me.
Nobody else has ever done that before, which speaks volumes about her passion and dedication.
The words "there's nothing else that can be done" or "I don't know what else to do with you" do not exist in Emma's vocabulary.
Emma introduced me to the world of Chinese medicine and my life hasn't been the same since. She taught me how to promote my own healing, and this is the first time in about 13 years that I have control over a lot of my symptoms that come along with my conditions. I now have hope that despite having two incurable conditions, that I can live a more comfortable, better life.
While attending graduate school, Emma became my best defence for stress relief and emotional “recalibration.” What I believed cured physical problems went much deeper, I learned. The Chinese medicine approach is to encapsulate the holistic view of the entire person, not just the symptom.
Emma helped me release stress and anxiety from school and my personal life with regular treatments. Emma becomes one of the most important people in your life, simply because she is extremely good at what she does and one of the most empathetic people I’ve ever known. She gently guides your healing process in a non-intrusive fashion so that whatever is broken or “dis-eased” can have the best chance to become whole and healthy once more.
I cannot say enough good things about Emma as a health practitioner.
