My neck and hand pain are dramatically reduced, and my hands have stopped drifting. My rheumatologist says, “Keep going to acupuncture.” Thank you, Wendy
It is with great pleasure that I want to thank-you for the wonderful work you do! Although my poor little ankle has been injured 3 times over the course of my life, 2 of which included not just pulled and torn ligaments, but broken bones as well, it was only with your expertise and intuition that I now have an ankle stronger than I can actually recall! It feels like a miracle of sorts! Before I met you, I did not really consider physiotherapy an option! Past experiences with physios seemed to do no more than cost me money and time! Not only have I become a believer, I frequently spout stories of your amazing skills. (Who would believe that I could recover some strength and mobility after three bad injuries and at my age!!) Do you remember the time my ankle was bothering me again, and you worked on my rib? I recall thinking...yeah right...but it worked!! It was crazy! Not only do your skills and insight continually amaze me, but your friendly, kind and compassionate approach is greatly appreciated! I trust your advice and knowledge completely!

To Dr. B. - A great big huge thanks to you for your healing hands and gentle spirit. You have been able to effect a change in my body that has also affected my outlook, my ability to enjoy my favorite activities and lightened my spirit. After so long living with pain and limitations, it was like being freed to move again.
Dear Revive Wholebody Health, My name is Debbie Klein and I'm proudly a patient of Dr. Jessica Sommerfeld. I'm also a single mom of two extremely active teenage boys in hockey and football. If that's not enough I have a full time job, two dogs, and try to lead a healthy lifestyle. So when I started feeling a feeling like I have never felt before I was desperate for anything to help relieve the pain. I had heard of people saying "their back was out". However, nothing would of prepared me for the pain I was going through. Just my daily routine from getting out of bed, putting socks on, wearing heals, getting in and out of my vehicle ( which is easily 12 times a day), making supper, getting gas, watching sporting events of my children and even sneezing, could bring tears to my eyes. (Not the happy ones either) I had been to a few other Doctors in all fields to find relief and NOTHING was helping. Until I was referred to the Revive Wholebody Health by a friend. I was actually referred to another Doctor, but there was a sooner appointment with Dr. Jessica. So I reluctantly and with a sense of skepticism I took it. I thought after the several (5) people I had seen for my pain in the past 3 months, I was destined to never feel better again. I had even reached a point of learning to cope with pain with medications, creams, ice, hot packs, nightly and morning baths. Whatever I could do to help even a little to eleviate some of the pain. This brings me to my first appointment with Dr. Jessica Sommerfeld. I don't really know how to tell you how much she helped. If anyone knows the pain of "your back going out" saying she "helped" is an understatement. She gave me my life back. I was so tired of being in so much pain but I had no choice I had to go on like EVERY other Mother. Not only am I not walking all hunched over, I'm working out again... Ok ok when I can fit it in ;) BUT best of all, no more tears! No more going into panic mode feeling a sneeze come on. I'm not saying it happened over night, but I will say I felt relief after my very first visit! So if that's not enough.... I will say the compassion I felt from Dr. Jessica was so comforting. I truly believe she knew how hopeless and scared I was feeling. That was all gone after the first appointment. I left there hopeful, and with an overwhelming sense of relief that I knew she would do what ever it took to help me. AND THAT SHE DID! She is nothing short of "My Miracle Worker". Thank you so much to everyone at Revive Wholebody Health! I truly appreciate everything that was done for me.
Being a FULL TIME crutch user, I have a lot of neck and back tension which was causing regular headaches and tightness. The headaches had become a part of my life on a fairly regular basis, and I had just begun to accept an llearn to live with them. Then with the sudden onset of a different type of headache - far more intense with different symptoms altogether - I sought out Kristine and her "magic hands", at the prompting of my mother-in-law. Desperate for relief after a clear CT scan and angiogram, I was AMAZED at the results after only one visit. Even though the Doctors I had seen didn't believe that these headaches were at all tension related, my husband and I figured that they just had to be. Nothing short of miraculous, I could seriously not believe the difference I felt as I walked out of Kristine's office after our first meeting. As I walked out of the office, I honestly had a big smile on my face and couldn't wait to tell my husband (who has now began treatments with her as well) how good I felt!! I could feel the improved mobility and the tightness and pulling in my neck was released and as a result NO MORE HEADACHES!! The intense sudden onset headaches have not happened since my first visit to Kristine and the regular headaches have subsided dramatically to almost being non-existent.
Dr. B. - "I have never known such a freedom from pain! Thank you for everything you do! I love the feeling when i walk into Revive but even more so when i walk out!".
Dr. Bronwen is an amazing human being and a rare gem of a doctor. She is an intelligent, warm & caring professional with extensive knowledge who always seems to know exactly what to do. I love that she can tune in, listen to, and follow my body because i know that she will always do what is best for my personal healing. She is a truly gifted healer and i am honored to have found her. I always feel better when i leave.
I am petrified of needles. And yet I love coming to see Wendy because her treatments work. She is able to help me with issues that I didn’t even know could be treated without drugs, like PMS (I swear!), stress, low mood and even weight loss. She exudes caring and concern and is somehow able to treat a skittish needle phobe (such as myself) in a way that makes me feel comfortable, safe and well. Her treatment room is like a haven for me, and I’m so grateful to have an effective alternative to drugs that I can rely on.
I just wanted to thank you for your hard work, unbelievable care, your research, your time, staying late, coming in early, calling to check up on me.....whatever you had to do. It is more appreciated than I will ever be able to find a way to tell all of you.
For the last several weeks, I have been visiting Lisa Lydiatt – physiotherapist -at Revive WholeBody Health in St. Albert. Lisa has been treating me following a fracture in my foot early this summer. I am so impressed by the quality of care I am receiving from Lisa. I find her very knowledgeable and skilled. I especially appreciate the time she takes to consult with me about the approaches she takes to my therapy and to describe why certain treatments and exercises will support my full recovery. Many of my appointments are first thing in the morning and yet Lisa is always welcoming, cheerful and encouraging. My entire experience at Revive has been positive – I find the office spaces very comfortable and all of the staff very client focused, friendly and collaborative!
