Testimonials

"Dr. Adrienne Perkins is the only reason that I could ever open the door to the world of acupuncture. She is the type of professional that many people don't deserve but need. I had several hesitations about acupuncture due to a modest fear of needles but Adrienne provided me with the environment and the empathy to work slowly as I became more comfortable with her treatments. Having a background in massage therapy Adrienne had massage skills of enviable stature, empathy to treat and respond to my needs (no matter how wimpy I was acting), the knowledge to treat conditions I was completely unfamiliar with and the tact/self awareness to know the limits of her care."

Dylan, 20s Paramedic

"Dr. Adrienne is a fantastic acupuncturist! I started seeing her for a few issues, which she fixed quite nicely. She's helped me with a number of issues from headaches to numbness in my toes. I've seen her in a clinic and my house. I can't say enough great things about Adrienne's services!"

Diane, 30s

"I was a chronic lower back pain sufferer and couldn't get rid of the constant pain. Someone suggested acupuncture so I decided to give it a try. After only a couple sessions with Dr. Adrienne, my pain was gone completely. I've been going to Adrienne for years now and swear by acupuncture. As a runner, I've experienced a few hip flexor injuries and each time within one or two treatments I've been good as new. Acupuncture is my go-to treatment anytime I'm experiencing any type of pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Adrienne to anyone!"

Leesa, 30s

"I have been a patient of Dr. Adrienne Perkins since 2011. I initially arrived ‎seeking relief for a stiff back and neck from extended hours sitting at my work desk and from travelling too many miles on my road bike in preparation for the Ride For Cancer. Adrienne tuned me up back then and I regularly visit her for maintenance ever since. Most recently she helped fix up a pinched nerve in my back that almost had me down for the count. She's the name I mention whenever my colleagues complain about their health issues."

Al, 50s

"I have been lucky enough to have been a patient of Dr. Adrienne's since she was just a student. She has seen me through all sorts of problems. From lower back and hip issues (due to working long shifts on my feet), to my growing concern over new found fine lines on my face! She was particularly helpful with one awful crick in my neck that had me in such tear-welling pain I wasn't sure I could even handle a needle in it, but with a few strategic pokes the muscle completely relaxed and I was able to turn my head again! It was astonishing how well it worked. Adrienne has also helped me through emotional stress, anxiety and depression. When you're feeling down or stressed acupuncture can really help. The combination of points and the warm company of Dr. Adrienne brought a feeling of lightness when things were tough. She is a great Doctor, I can't recommend her enough!

 

Christina 30's Founder of Slum Runners

"I have been a client of Adrienne’s in Calgary, where I received both massage and acupuncture services. Adrienne is very attentive to specific needs and tailors her sessions accordingly. Some visits required more acupuncture than others but ultimately the decision was left to me! Adrienne is very professional but relaxed at the same time, a great balance and hard to achieve. I would highly recommend Adrienne, and look forward to my next treatment, when she is hopefully back in Calgary." 

Nathan, 40s

"I'm a health & fitness professional, so I am extremely particular about who works on my body. Adrienne is a gem amongst gems. Her personality alone will make you want to get started and come back forever, but she is also a top professional at her craft. She combines cupping, acupuncture, and massage to deliver effective results. Love her, love her, love her!"

"I have been seeing Dr. Adrienne Perkins for acupuncture and acussage for over five years. She is incredibly skilled at finding problem areas and helping relieve tension. She is sensitive to her clients needs and really listens to tailor the treatment well. Adrienne has been instrumental in helping release tension in my neck and shoulders from a whiplash injury along with tight hips and lower back issues."

Janis Isaman. Owner: My Body Couture

"I have been a patient of Dr Adrienne for several years. I am an avid runner, parent of a young child and work in a high stress job. I was seeking relief from various running and work-related ailments. I had foot pain and general stiffness in my body. As an office worker, I had experienced neck and shoulder pain and stiffness. The combination of acupuncture and massage intrigued me. After one session, I was very happy with the outcome. I had tried other practitioners, but was hard pressed to find one that provided a balanced approach to acupuncture and massage. It was always one or the other. Dr Adrienne is adept at tailoring the treatment to each patient. I appreciate her so much." 

Darlene, 70s

"I have been seeing Dr. Adrienne for a number of years for acupuncture treatments for my lowerback, neck and shoulder pain with excellent results. I find her very knowledgeable and competent with a pleasant manner."

"I have been a client of Dr. Perkins for 5 years. My experience with her is that she is a dedicated, sincere, and compassionate Doctor. She treats you in complete wholeness, mentally, physically and spiritually. Studying in China has given Adrienne a wealth of knowledge to share Chinese medicine and her gentle approach leaves you feeling whole. She gets my personal five star rating!"
