I came to Angel hoping acupuncture would help me get pregnant. I was a little wary at first, but Angel’s friendly and down-to-earth nature put me at ease right away. Her knowledge, professionalism, and steady demeanor made me calm and confident — it felt less like an “out-there” therapy than I had expected. Each treatment was like a little remedy, so I began really enjoying my appointments simply as a chance to relax and recoup. The biggest surprise was that I became pregnant within a few weeks. My son is almost a year old, and I’m looking forward to seeing Angel again when we’re ready to expand the family.
I recommend Angel highly and without hesitation ... In fact, I've done so to friends, of whom continue to thank me regularly and sometimes profusely in celebration of all the ways in which Angel has helped re-balance and re-align their health. They, like me, were able to discern by the first or second visit that they responded very noticeably to Angel and her acupuncture. So it's worth a try to venture into something new in your good-health and self-care practice! Angel is also very open to all kinds of treatments, traditional and mainstream, so is happy to pull together a plan that takes into account the approach of all other health practitioners with whom you might be dealing. All in all, it goes without saying that Angel's gentle touch and open, intuitive manner, her being, is true to her name.
Having had many treatments with Angel, I have found her extremely professional and caring. With the type of sport injuries I have, her treatments have helped my ailments tremendously. I always look forward to the next one.
Angel is a highly skilled and compassionate practitioner. As a yoga teacher I often refer my students to Angel if their bodies need a little "fine tuning" or when they are working through injury.
After 4 years of acupuncture treatments with various practitioners, I began seeing Angel. I was immediately hooked by the amazing results that happened after being treated. Angel has the most unique ability to be in tune with deficiencies in our bodies and she exudes a confidence in her practice that allows me to be comfortable. I've moved away from Vancouver and would move Angel here if I could so that I could continue to be treated by her!
Angel as an acupuncturist is truly amazing. Her technique, communicating everything she is doing. I noticed a difference immediately for my shoulder.
I have had severe atopic eczema on my hands my entire life - itchiness, inflammation, extreme dryness and cracking, allergic reactions…You name it, I had it. From a young age, I’ve tried everything under the sun from Western, Eastern and alternative medicine to treat it, none of which did anything to improve the severity of my condition. Up until I met Angel, I was entirely dependent on strong steroid creams to control my flare-ups. Constant scratching and being unable to make a closed fist because of the cracking was a part of my daily reality. By the time Angel suggested cold laser therapy (laser acupuncture), I had accepted that this was the status quo and that there wasn’t much I could do to change it. Even cynics though can be won over with results: after going through a round of Angel's cold laser therapy, I'm elated to report that my skin has now improved to the best state I've ever known in my life. The skin is a lot smoother and retains more moisture, and my natural skin colour has come back in places previously red with inflammation. Furthermore, my eczema has stabilized to a point where it isn't so reactive to heightened stress levels or contact with allergens. While it can still swing out of balance from time to time, it re-establishes stability much quicker than before and I no longer have to use steroid creams to do so. Many friends and family members who have known me throughout the years have been astonished to see the improvement, and I'm overjoyed to be able to go entire days where I forget I even have eczema at all! I am so grateful to Angel, not only for improving my quality of life with such a non-invasive, non-toxic procedure, but for answering my million questions with utmost patience, and for empowering me, when I had all but given up, to believe that there could be a way to treat my eczema. I can't recommend the treatment, her expertise and experience as a healer enough!
As a longtime sufferer and survivor of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), I have endured many health problems directly and indirectly related to this condition. I have tried all sorts of conventional medical treatments, including prescription medications as well as alternative herbal/homeopathic and naturopathic remedies, massage therapy, chiropractic and physiotherapy in attempts to mitigate the chronic pain that regularly affects my joints that are responsible for limiting and restricting my mobility and basic body movements. Through the years these treatments have had little or no effect on the pain and swelling and inflammation. However, I have been recently under the care of Angel Seto, Registered Acupuncturist, who uses laser acupuncture to treat my symptoms, and the effect has been astounding and immediate. As recently as the past two months, I have had a couple of arthritic flare-ups which have caused huge inflammation and swelling in my wrists and also in my foot, with accompanying pain that I described as 10 on a scale of 0 (for no pain) to 10 for unbearable, extreme pain. Almost from the moment treatment with the laser was finished, my pain was eliminated completely, and did not return to its full force. Swelling and inflammation were reduced to an imperceptible level. I consequently experienced only the occasional twinge in my hand and foot, probably at a self-described reading of 0.5 based on the previously mentioned scale. I am very grateful for the opportunity to receive laser acupuncture to mitigate my painful symptoms and for the first time since being diagnosed with RA, feel optimistic about going into remission as far as severe symptoms are concerned. I have also been quite ecstatic about how Angel's laser acupuncture has succeeded in completely and immediately eliminated the extreme pain I have felt following dental procedures such as surgical extractions and root canal and abscess treatments. No other treatments have given me such quick and long lasting results.
