Dr. Sabrina Silins changed my life
It is impossible for me to put into a brief paragraph how Dr. Sabrina Silins changed my life.

I met her when she was doing her training. I had just finished having 2 consecutive car accidents within a 6 week period. I was on barbiturates, narcotics and many other Dr prescribed medication (18 pills in the evening and morning and numerous during the day) Sabrina knew my son, and offered to help me. Each week I would go to see her we would go through the questions and I would realize WOW that symptom had dissipated...a few weeks later another one had lessened. After approximately one year I was off of ALL pharmaceuticals ... on her concoctions (non of them were endangered species...that was her comment to help me to drink them) and able to have my quality of life back. She is dedicated to her profession like no other, she is a sweet and endearing soul that I cherish a relationship to this day with.

Struggle with anxiety
"My supervisor at work recommended Dr. Silins to me - I struggle with anxiety and a variety of other, at times dehabilitating psychological issues. When I first met Sabrina I was uncomfortable even taking off my shoes in her office, and was very leery of having anyone touch me. Desperation won out though and something about Dr. Silins demeanor kept me coming back - with thicker socks! Despite my acute awareness of the ridiculous nature of some of my irrational thoughts - Sabrina treated all my thoughts and symptoms thoughtfully and acknowledged my trepidation and proceeded with treatment.

I have had acupuncture before, from a variety of practitioners, each with their own style - but always healing seemed to be something they did - with Sabrina it’s who she is… For her clients and for herself - I have teased her more than once that I truly believe that she has an elven bloodline - and even if that’s not true - there is something ethereal to her practice.. I can state unequivocally that her treatment truly did decrease the amount of anxiety I experienced on a day-to-day basis. Calgary’s loss is definitely Edmonton’s gain!"

Dr. Sabrina Silins way of Treatment
I had the privilege of working for Dr. Silins in Calgary as well as be her patient. As a receptionist and clinic manager, I saw first hand the love her patients had for her. The practice consisted of several practitioners, however, she had amazing rapport with her patients and numerous people would call and ask for her by name. A patient didn’t leave the room the same way they would walk into it. Her patient care and results were exceptional. I loved being her patient as well because she took care of me personally. The treatment was never about my health only, it was all encompassing; it was about my physical and emotional health. My body responded to the treatments very well... she never seized to be patient, kind, understanding, and warm. I am blessed to have had her as a practitioner and wish she’s still in Calgary!

Health and wellness techniques
After having tried other health and wellness techniques/ practices (massage, eating right, staying active, yoga) I decided to give acupunture a try for my ailments/misalignments in my body. Sabrina helped me to rediscover myself and the person I am on the inside, way deep down. It has been a continuos process for myself in rediscovering who I am and reconnecting with myself at a much deeper level. Though I misalign my priorities for the negatives at times, Sabrina has always been there to help see me through it and to realize that I actually know who I want to be. I am extremely appreciative to have found such a wonderful person as Sabrina. She has helped me in utilizing other health and wellness practices such as, chiropractic. I am thoroughly enjoying this path of self discover that I have embarked upon with Sabrina by way of my acupuncture treatments.

S. -Edmonton
Dr. Silins is more than just a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. She has a gift to which words do not easily attach. She nurtures her gift with love and compassion, infusing both into her practice. Under her care, my life has been forever changed. I was able to conceive a child, survive the loss of that child, conceive and nurture a second child, and learn to love and care not only for them, but myself. These, too, are gifts beyond words. I recommend Dr. Silins to anyone with an open heart, or a desire to unlock one and embrace a life-changing journey of professional and compassionate care.

CQB- Edmonton
I started seeing Sabrina in May 2010 when my husband and I were having some difficulty getting pregnant. I immediately came home and told my husband that I loved her and that I felt incredibly comfortable with her. She was very reassuring and helpful, sending me all kinds of information and doing research on my behalf. I always left my treatments feeling fantastic, and I felt I could go to her with any questions or concerns I had. While we did end up having to resort to fertility treatments, Sabrina was there throughout the process. At a time when I felt very few people could understand what I was going through she continued to be a sounding board for me, and I continued with my regular treatments. I couldn’t wait to tell her when we were finally pregnant. We are due with our first child this October (2012) and I have continued to see Sabrina throughout the pregnancy. I saw Sabrina early in the pregnancy for nausea and it appeared to stay at bay for almost a full 2 weeks at a time, I would feel it returning just days before my next appointment, and sure enough it would settle back down after the appointment. The pregnancy has been a breeze with zero back pain or discomfort (at 8 months so far) and I am sure that her treatments have assisted in this. I look forward to continuing to see her throughout and beyond the pregnancy and would recommend her (and have recommended) her to anybody interested in acupuncture treatments.

My Experience with Dr. Silins
After being on the birth control pill for 16 years and at the age of 33, my husband and I were ready to start our family. I started tracking my ovulation in January 2010 and month after month was faced with the disappointment of not conceiving. I researched many different avenues for the reasons why it was taking so long for me to conceive, and met with my doctor regularly. I was deflated even more after my doctor couldn’t offer me any concrete answers after discussing my family history. I was frustrated to hear that my family history couldn’t shed any light as both my mom and my sister had children while in their twenties and I was starting this chapter of my life at the age of 33.

A good friend of mine who had been seeing Dr.Sillins for quite some time, encouraged me to book an initial consultation to gain another perspective on my fertility issues. I had never experienced acupuncture and was nervous but met with Dr Sillins for the first time in November 2010 after ten months of trying to conceive on my own.

I was impressed with Dr.Sillins knowledge and bed side manner in discussing this very sensitive issue. She offered me concrete options to address hormonal imbalances and the stress I had been feeling after experiencing months of continued disappointment. I followed her suggestions and continued appointments every 2 weeks. During that time not only did the combination of the acupuncture treatments and supplements improve how I felt everyday; there was also a positive emotional impact as I felt I was being productive in my efforts to conceive.

On January 15, 2011, I was ecstatic to find out I was 6 weeks pregnant. My first email was to Dr.Sillins to share this amazing news and I continued sessions with Dr.Sillins throughout my pregnancy. My husband I were overjoyed when our beautiful and healthy baby boy was born on September 17, 2011.

Dr.Sillins has opened up my awareness of my body and to be aware of how everything is connected. She has been an amazing support to me and I am so grateful for her dedication and commitment to her patients.

Lung Cancer
I was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung cancer June 2010. By the time I was diagnosed I had a large mass in my right lung, swollen lymph nodes in my neck, chest and groin, a spot on a vertebrae and a metasisis in my brain.
Surgery was not an option for me but I was treated with whole brain radiation and we began a course of chemotherapy. With the regimen of chemo I ended up in the hospital twice for 3 weeks at a time with febrile neutropenia. This resulted in me having to have 16 blood transfusions.
By this time it was March 2011 and I was sent home to get stronger so that I could have more chemotherapy. I told my cancer was stable. In March my mother was also diagnosed with Stage IV Lung cancer and she passed away in May.
A subsequent CT scan in May/June showed the cancer had turned aggressive and had again invaded my brain and spinal bones, in addition to an increase in size to lung and lymph nodes.
Treatment with Dr. Silins started in early July 2011 and consisted of herbal remedies, as well as Traditional Chinese Acupuncture treatments. Dr. Silins also did research and recommended other treatments, such as Emotional Freedom Training and one on one energy treatments with other providers.
My most recent CT scan in September showed significant reduction in lung mass and lymph nodes.
I have found Dr. Silins to be compassionate and caring and would highly recommend her to anyone I knew. She really cares about her patients and goes to many lengths to treat them or find alternative treatment for them.

My Experience
"My experience with Sabrina was through her working to help my sister who
was recently diagnosed with Lupus. My sister was admitted to hospital this
past summer with odd mental behavior that began within the course of one
day. Our whole family was terrified as we didn’t know what was wrong with
her and weren’t getting any answer’s from the doctors in hospital.

When Sabrina heard what was going on, she drove three hours to see my
sister in-hospital and gave our whole family support. She helped us see
what was happening to our sister holistically rather than Medically.
Sabrina also got us in touch with numerous practitioners (Acupuncturist’s,
Naturopath’s, Energy Healers, etc.) in Calgary who made regular hospital
visits and, ultimately, helped bring back my sister.

Throughout the course of three months, with the help of those
practitioners and all the love and prayer sent our way from Sabrina, my
sister recovered. She is now free of psychosis, and is seeing a Shaman and
a Naturopath to get her health in gear.

With Dr. Sabrina Sillins’s help, compassion, and guidance my whole family
was able to emotionally and physically cope with that traumatic
experience."

"Do you believe in miracles?

I think they come in fleeting moments and within the capacity for kindness from people.

Sabrina and I were colleagues together from Chinese medicine school.

Sabrina has been gifted with many things; beauty, brains and a capacity for kindness that I have not witnessed very often in my life.

She has won the hearts and minds of so many of her colleagues, including the late Dr David Chu. Dr Chu was responsible for advancing our profession and having it recognized by the government of Alberta. Dr Chu had Sabrina work along side of him until his untimely passing.

Sabrina and I now reside in different cities, and I never hesitate to recommend her to people I meet from Edmonton."

Professional Dancer
Sabrina treated me over a period of 4months during my time as a dancer onboard the Norwegian Pearl. I was suffering from back and neck pain, poor sleep, irregular periods and anxiety. I had never had any contact with acupuncture or Chinese medicine before, but was very open to the idea, and Sabrina’s calming personality convinced me that she could ease my troubles if not fix them entirely. Through a course of acupuncture and the use of ear beads, the pain in my back and neck eased considerably, my periods became regular, and my sleeping patterns began to even out. My treatments were an indulgence - I loved lying on the table under the tender hands of a healer, with ambient music and lighting, and for half an hour allowing my troubles to stay outside the treatment room. Sabrina herself takes care of her patients on an individual and personal level; when she was caring for me I knew that I had her complete, undivided attention, care and support. I would highly recommend her healing hands!
