After struggling with secondary infertility for 2 years I began seeing Monica we had already had 2 failed IUI attempts. Following her advice and treatment recommendations including supplements I am thrilled to say that we conceived on our 3rd IUI attempt. Everything about our last cycle was so different from the first 2 cycles that I can honestly say its because of Monica and her vast knowledge surrounding fertility that we finally conceived and I am now pregnant with 2 very healthy babies! As if getting pregnant wasn’t enough of a reason to sing her praises, she also got rid of my heartburn that I had suffered with daily since being pregnant with my 1st child. I used to pop tums like they were going out of style and I have maybe had 3 episodes of mild heartburn in the last 4 months. Monica has a such a outgoing and friendly nature about her that she instantly makes you feel like you have been friends for years. I am so grateful that I took the chance and began seeing her, I cannot recommend enough that anyone trying to get pregnant goes to see her!

I was a recent newly wed wanting to start a family. My husband and I were blessed to conceive right away, however 8 weeks later suffered a miscarriage. With the miscarriage, I was diagnosed with a uterine malformation that further increases my miscarriage risk above the average population. Devastated with the news and expecting a future of further miscarriages and possible surgery, we were unsure of what the future was going to hold. After the miscarriage I experienced menstrual irregularities which further complicated the situation. Wanting assistance and unable to see an obys/gyne Dr for months a friend referred me to Monica. My first appointment with Monica I was a bit sceptical of what she could offer. Being a pharmacist I put much value in the medical community and scientific research not traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture. I didn’t have much to lose. I dived right in and became a “perfect patient”. Throughout the process Monica was positive, supportive, knowledgeable, and would take the time to answers any questions I had. She was truly amazing. Within 5 weeks of treatment I had received my period and a positive pregnancy test. I was astounded with the results though Monica knew I was pregnant a week before by a simple change in my pulse. She continued to treat me for the first trimester ensuring I had a healthy pregnancy and helped to alleviate my all day morning sickness. I would recommend Monica to any of my friends wanting to conceive. She was a great help to me in a time of need.

I can’t say enough great things about Monica Patt. Monica treated me leading up to and throughout my IVF protocol. She was so understanding and empathetic to the emotional roller coaster of infertility. She helped me feel great and stay relaxed. My egg numbers and quality were great and we ended up with 4 high quality embryos. We transferred one of them and Monica treated me throughout my first trimester. She could tell I was pregnant before I had a positive test based on assessing my pulse. I now have a healthy son and will be seeing Monica again for future embryo transfers.

“After struggling with unexplained infertility for 2 years and four failed IUI attempts, we decided to proceed with IVF In January. Monica treated me before the IVF, during, and after. She made herself available outside of her working hours to accommodate my retrieval and transfer dates/times. Monica is extremely committed to her clients and is excellent at what she does. Not only is she extremely educated and knowledgeable, her bright personality made me look forward to my appointments. She was able to relieve a lot of my stress and anxiety through treatments and we fell pregnant with twins on our first round of IVF.”

“”Hope you’re having a nice weekend and enjoying this gorgeous weather. I wanted to pass on that my right ovary went from 2 little follicles under 10mm to 6 juicy ones all over 12mm so the electro stim likely helped!”

― J

“We got 5 embryos!! 4 are graded as excellent and 1 as fair. I’m so happy! See you tomorrow :)😊”

― J

I heard about Monica from a friend that was also struggling with fertility and suggested I go see her as she had recently become pregnant. We conceived our son naturally 4 years earlier however no matter what we did we couldn’t get pregnant with our second child. After two failed frozen embryo transfers I was at a loss of what to do next. We had one embryo left. My friend recommended I see Monica for acupuncture during our next frozen transfer. We are now expecting out second child and couldn’t be happier!

― Jenn

I have been seeing Monica since last summer for fertility issues. Over the last few months, she supported me throughout my journey, professional as an acupuncturist, and personally as a friend. She’s always willing to listen and accommodating when it comes to my shift work scheduling. I truly recommend her to anybody with fertility issues. Although my journey is far from being complete, I am glad I had found her!

― W

I couldn’t have made it through the other side of the miscarriages to motherhood if it wasn’t for your care. I don’t think I said it enough to you… THANK YOU SO SO SO SO MUCH for everything you did for me. I’m loving being a mom so so much❣️

― G

After trying to get pregnant for about 8 months, someone recommended Monica to me. I took all of Monica’s advice, took the herbs she recommended and made appointments when she said they were necessary. After seeing Monica for just over a month I was pregnant! And felt more relaxed and stress free than I had in a while. I continued to see her throughout my first trimester for morning sickness and fatigue. I look forward to seeing Monica for each and every appointment. I would recommend her to anyone. She’s the best.

― Alana

After trying to conceive naturally for years with no success, I was referred to Monica Patt through mutual friends. Words cannot express how thankful I am to have met Monica. From the moment I walked into her office, I felt completely at ease knowing that she cared just as much as I did about getting me pregnant. After a few failed attempts at IUI, the doctors informed me that my FSH levels were drastically rising and that my only option would be IVF. At this point I knew something had to be done. I began to visit Monica twice per week to prepare for IVF, taking herbs and following her guidelines diligently. Two months later, my FSH had dropped drastically. At this point we were ready to start our first IVF cycle. I continued to see Monica regularly. We scheduled an appointment the morning of my egg retrieval as well as pre and post transfer day. Fast forward a few months…We are expecting twins in February! I genuinely believe that our little miracles wouldn’t be here without a combination of Western and Eastern medicine, Monica you truly are a godsend.

― Jenna

I went to see Monica upon the referral from a friend. I was seeking help for sever PMS that included extreme breast tenderness, painful intercourse, nausea, headaches and migraines before my cycle and debilitating cramping. I have a bicornuate uterus and after having surgery years ago I was told the only way to manage these symptoms was with large amounts of pain medications or a hysterectomy. Monica got to work on me. After only one cycle with the combination of acupuncture and herbs I had my period, without any breast tenderness, headaches, nausea or cramping! She is knowledgeable about her work and will answer questions in as much detail as you like. I highly recommend Monica, she has been such a great help to me!

― Danielle

Words cannot express how truly grateful I am for your expertise and compassionate care. We would not have our wonderful son if not for all you did to help me in my fertility journey. I am amazing at how you helped heal my body enough to grow this perfect little human- conceived on an unmedicated cycle and delivered without the need for medical induction. Thank you for the amazing work you do!

― K

Meeting Monica was such a blessing! I heard about Monica through word of mouth. I’m over 40 and going through Fertility treatments. Every visit, she really listens to you and makes you feel that she not only cares but will do everything in her expertise to help and follow up’s with emails which is something that is not expected! I went to 3 different acupuncturist and I didn’t feel they understood what I was going through. She is someone whom I would say, not only has thorough knowledge but also wisdom. Every week that I went for acupuncture was a gift because it was confirmation that my body was strong and healthy. It was worth all the investment, time and energy. I retrieved lots of eggs for my age and I believe that the treatments helped. If you’re thinking of seeing her, go now!

― M

We do not have enough positive things to say about Monica. After years of fertility struggles, including 6 miscarriages and 2 rounds of IVF, we found Monica. We were nearing the end of our journey and ready to give up but committed to seeing an acupuncturist, at the same time as we were on the waiting list for one last round of IVF and that’s when our world changed. The passion and care that she shows her clients is indescribable. We knew from the minute we met her that she truly cared about us and our journey and was prepared to try everything in her power to achieve our dream of expanding our family. Within 2-3 months we couldn’t believe it when we discovered we were pregnant naturally. As we had been in that position before, we found it difficult to celebrate our news, but the moment we told Monica, her excitement, enthusiasm, and positivity that this one will stick was contagious and we jumped on board with all the treatments and herbs she recommended.We are currently 28 weeks pregnant and loving every single second of it. If it were not for the fabulous Monica and the care and compassion she showed us, we believe we wouldn’t be in this position, counting down to the final 3 months before our little miracle arrives. She is a true gem and an absolute pleasure to know. Without her, we wouldn’t be where we are today, and for that, we are eternally grateful.

― M

My husband and I just had our first consult with Monica today and I absolutely love her! She is passionate, empathetic, and very knowledgeable. We have hope again for the first time in a long time!

― R

Thank you so much for your very special role in helping create out little man xo

Excellent, excellent, excellent!! I was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure and given a 5-10% chance of getting pregnant. Part of the challenge was very irregular cycles and no ovulation. After trying to conceive for a year I started see Monica for acupuncture. This lady knows her stuff! She is extremely knowledgeable, personable, passionate and fun! She regulated my cycles and after about 6 weeks of treatment I got pregnant. So thankful to have meet her and I highly recommend her!

― C

I went to Monica looking for help as my husband and I had been trying to conceive for just under a year. After a thorough history, I was left with a sense of hope; Monica’s excitement to get started on this journey was contagious and she made me feel completely at ease. She explained what deficiencies my symptoms and history indicated and outlined a treatment plan. My husband and I started taking all of the herbs and I saw her for acupuncture as advised. One month later, I got the positive pregnancy test! I continued to see her regularly up to 3 months, which really helped with my nausea. As a bonus, she worked on some longstanding bladder issues, which was much appreciated! Monica, I can’t thank you enough for helping me! “

― Pam

My husband and I had been trying for a baby for 3 and a half years. We saw 4 specialists and tried many different ways to conceive but nothing worked. As I mentioned before you did the acupuncture for ovulation and migraines. My migraines were gone within a week (I had them almost every single day for five months straight) and a month later I learned that I was pregnant.  I wanted to write to you many times to thank you … but I was too scared to jinx it. On October 11th I gave birth to a very beautiful and very overdue miracle baby girl. Thank you for your kind words of support at my appointment. I know that you know the struggle of infertility. Thank you. Thank you.”

I’ve been going to Monica for a couple of years now. First she helped me with getting pregnant. I felt really comfortable and believed in what she was doing. I was having some trouble getting pregnant and we had been trying for about 9 months. After sessions with her for about a month I was pregnant! After I had my baby I developed a severe pain in my foot. I went to my doctor and he said it was gout! The more I thought about it the more I didn’t believe it was gout. He didn’t do any tests on me and just prescribed me medication. Before I took the meds I decided to go see Monica again. She treated my pain in only 3 sessions. I felt so much better and she really spent the time in making sure I was treated correctly. I no longer limp around and I can exercise again. Monica is professional, very knowledgeable, is patient and takes the time to connect with you. I highly recommend her!

― Viki

A friend recommended Monica when I told her we were having trouble conceiving our second child. We got pregnant so quickly with our daughter, however after her birth, my cycle never felt normal and every month my PMS symptoms seemed to get worse and worse. I was nervous about acupuncture, but wanted to try a more natural approach before medications and technology. My first appointment with Monica was amazing. She asked me questions I had always wanted to share with someone, but was afraid and shy to. She was very approachable, friendly and seemed to really understand everything we were going through. With acupuncture and herbal teas, Monica was able to regulate and help me better manage my cycle, while forever listening and supporting us. After 3 months of treatment I became pregnant and am ever grateful for Monica’s help and support. I’ve become a big advocate for acupuncture and her work.

― Allison

I began to see Monica to help with my PCOS. I was experiencing irregular menstural cycles and was told I would likely need hormonal intervention if I wanted to get pregnant in the future. Through regular acupuncture appointments and taking herbs Monica suggested my cycles became regular and much less painful. We decided to start trying to get pregnant and by month two it happened! I continued to see Monica throughout my first trimester until 12 weeks as per Monica’s suggestion to help reduce fatigue. I will return to Monica for birth preparation treatments in the weeks before labour.

― Megan

In 2011 I was involved in a car accident and sustained neck trauma. I went to physiotherapy for six months, tried acupuncture for six sessions, tried a chiropractor, back to physiotherapy with no relief and then I found Monica Patt. I have nothing but great things to say about Monica. She makes me feel comfortable and is willing to spend extra time and care to make sure she works on all issues. She explains what she is doing and why she is doing it. She will adjust the needles if there is any sign of discomfort. She exudes caring and concern and has wonderful sense of humor. Her treatment room is like a haven for me. I feel like she is a friend as well as a health care practitioner and remains professional at the same time. Since my visits to Monica I rarely take any pain medication and I feel like she has given me my life back. Thanks Monica.

― M

Hi Monica! My head, neck and shoulders are feeling great, I haven’t felt this good in years! Seriously.

― Kristina

“Positive test today!!! Knew you could do it!!! You’re the best!!!”

― M

After suffering through lower back pain throughout my first pregnancy, I decided to try acupuncture to see if that would at least lessen the discomfort during my second pregnancy. As I described the type of pain to Monica, she knew exactly what was causing it and I noticed a huge improvement after the very first treatment. She is full of great advice and knowledge, and easy to talk to. As an added bonus, she did a few pre-labour treatments, which helped to shorten my labour time! Thanks Monica!

― Leslee

I was referred to Monica from a friend who had quick success with trying to get pregnant after years of being on the birth control pill. I saw Monica weekly for approximately 2 months before getting that big, fat positive on a pregnancy test. I followed her instructions to take Maca Root and follow up with her on the critical days of each cycle and BOOM I was pregnant after one and half cycles. All I can say, is that Monica is absolutely amazing at what she does. She is such an amazing person, who treats all of her clients with the respect and care that they all deserve. I highly recommend her to everyone and anyone who is looking for a great acupuncturist, whether it be for fertility reasons or not. 

― Sienna

Monica’s treatments work! I’ve experienced painful and heavy periods for years. After a few months of regular acupuncture treatments along with taking the herbs recommended by Monica, I’m happy to say that my periods are now very manageable. Monica is very knowledgeable and passionate about her craft, and she also has an amazing bedside manner, which makes me feel comfortable placing myself in her care. If you are considering acupuncture treatment, you MUST SEE Monica! 

― Jackie

A friend recommended I see Monica for acupuncture in June when I was suffering from what I thought was sciatic pain (it went from my hip all the way down my leg and into my ankle with numbness in my shin) and caused such pain that I was unable to sleep. I have never been in so much pain in my life but when I went for my first appointment with Monica she said that my pain was muscular and was confident she could fix me. I needed to trust her as I had already seen my doctor, who prescribed muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatory drugs as well as going to my chiropractor six times in a two-week period. After my first acupuncture appointment I had a significant decrease in pain and was able to sleep. After my third appointment I would say that I was back to normal. I will continue to see Monica just to be sure that things never get that way again.”

― Sue

I had not had my period for over eight months and one day decided to do something about it. At the time I was waiting to meet a specialist. I discovered Monica while searching and found that acupuncture could help. My first meeting with Monica went well and I found her to be very warm, kind and professional. I actually got my period back. All I can say is I am glad I called Monica and that acupuncture works.

― Susan

Monica is an amazing acupuncturist. She helped me a lot with insomnia problems, menstrual problems and gastrointestinal pain while I was living in Canada. She is very competent and professional. I live in Brazil, but if I come back to Canada I am sure I am going back to treat with her again.

― Juliana

Monica is magical when it comes to cupping! One of the first treatments I had with her was cupping and she was able to release a knot in my back that had been causing pain for months – even after having massages done.

― Janelle

My Husband and I had been trying for only a couple months to get pregnant, but I felt like trying out fertility acupuncture because I thought I couldn’t hurt! I spent a few months seeing Monica who helped regulate my hormones (after being on birth control for 11 years) and help prepare my reproductive system and other organs for a healthy pregnancy when it happened. I diligently took the herbs Monica provided me on the correct days and dosage, I made appointments with her when she said was vital for my cycle, and made changes in my lifestyle that she recommended for conception. My last cycle I could only described as awful! It was cycle 5 since trying to conceive and my most painful, heavy, and bothersome one yet. Monica believed that my body was finally responding to all our hard work and dumping those years of birth control and creating a perfect home for an embryo. Well Monica was right because the following month I found out I WAS PREGNANT! The experience of trying to conceive was difficult at times feeling like something might be wrong or I wasn’t doing something right, but seeing Monica was such a positive point to my day and she always had me leaving acupuncture feeling relaxed, revitalized and confident that my time was just around the corner! I would highly recommend seeing her to any of my family and friends and will enjoy seeing her throughout my pregnancy for any unforeseen symptoms, aches or pains!

― Kerri

I was suffering from near daily migraines and, because I’m a breastfeeding mom, my pharmacological options were quite limited and not very effective. Monica is a miracle worker! My migraine attacks are much less frequent and much less severe! Monica has also been treating me for my endometriosis and that means I have fewer pain days and more energy for my family.

― Dena

For years I have been struggling with my energy levels and moods as well as some physical issues like tendinitis in my right arm. I started seeing Monica for acupuncture and I noticed immediate results. It was like a jolt of energy each time I had a treatment. On an energetic level I felt more clear, and more centered and was able to better concentrate at work. I was inspired to get back into a good exercise regime and was able to get physically back on track. Acupuncture has helped me with so and I will continue to use it to feel great!

― Whitney

I went to see Monica for a recurring lower back and sciatic nerve pain problem. After a few electro acupuncture sessions, the pain disappeared and has not returned. Monica was friendly, professional, and explained everything she was doing. I would definitely return in the future.

― Vanessa

I have been meaning to try acupuncture for years for chronic back pain and other ailments and I can’t believe I waited this long to do it. Monica came highly recommended by a friend so I was excited to get started. From the moment I met Monica she made me feel at ease and I instantly trusted her. She explained the entire process and methods she would be using (and why) and kept talking to me during the treatment. She is so passionate about preventative health care, it makes me so excited to see her every appointment. Oh, I should have mentioned this in the first sentence but I have been back pain FREE for a over a month. That hasn’t happened in over 15 years.

― Michel

I went in to see Monica because I’ve had to cut short almost every golf season due to back pain for just over a decade. I’d never tried acupuncture before, but Monica talked me through everything and knew exactly what to do to help. I’ve now had my longest and busiest golf season ever, and I’ve been totally pain free. I’m now a believer in acupuncture, and I’m a huge fan of Monica. Her professionalism and superhero abilities have helped make this the best summer, and maybe year, of my life. Thanks Monica!

― Craig

I was referred to Monica by a co-worker and it was the best decision! She answers all questions, and explains her practice clearly! Monica is knowledgeable, approachable and makes you feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Monica

― Ashley

I have been to numerous acupuncturists and Monica is the only one who has made a difference in my health. She is professional…but also super caring and nurturing. I highly recommend her.

― Blake

My husband and myself are so grateful for finding Monica. We both came in requiring treatment. Me with my menopause and my husband with his Colitis. Monica has helped me with the use of herbs and acupuncture to lessen my hot flashes and my anxiety, I also sleep much better. With my Husband she helped with his Colitis. He was in pretty bad shape when he came to see her. With treatment he has gotten his energy back, doesn’t go to the washroom 10 times per day, goes half if not less and also helped with the bleeding that comes with Colitis. We both still continue with treatments. It truly has helped us both out. Thank you Monica!

― Tony & Veronica

My first trimester of pregnancy was very difficult; I was very nauseous and had pretty bad acid reflux. When I saw my midwife I had lost 14lbs and had to take Zantac for my reflux. As this was not ideal and I did not want to take anything during pregnancy my midwife suggested I try acupuncture. Even though I had utilized acupuncture many times in the past I did not think I could use it for nausea but I contacted my acupuncturist Monica and I made an appointment. When I arrived at the clinic I was 16 weeks along and my nausea had started to get worse and I was still throwing up every day and losing weight. After my first treatment I stopped throwing up. After my second treatment the nausea was completely gone and after my third treatment I did not have to take my Zantac anymore. I went for a total of five treatments and I have started to gain weight and have more energy. I am now 22 weeks and am feeling great thanks to acupuncture and Monica. I would recommend prenatal/pregnancy acupuncture to anyone who has any discomfort in any area.

― Jenny

Monica provided amazing support in moving me through many of the physical and emotional effects of making several major life changes. She’s fantastic at identifying exactly what treatment is necessary, excellent at explaining what she’s doing, and wonderfully personable.

― Myra

After struggling with infertility for almost 2 years I was coming to the end of my rope and starting to lose hope entirely that my dream of becoming a mom would ever be a reality. That’s when a friend recommended Monica Patt. After our very first consultation- it was clear that Monica fully understood my concerns and frustrations and also knew exactly the treatment plan I needed (an experience that I not had with previous acupuncturists) She took the time, listened to me and made me feel completely at ease. I left that appointment feeling reassured, excited and confident. After only 2 sessions with Monica I found out i was pregnant! I continued to see her throughout my pregnancy and she helped with everything from nausea, fatigue, digestion and energy levels. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a down to earth, highly knowledgeable practitioner. She knows her stuff and always makes sure you feel completely supported. I always look forward to our sessions and I am so grateful to have found Monica and will absolutely be seeing her for any further pregnancies and health concerns in the future.

― Jessica

Monica is amazing! She has helped me tremendously with my endometriosis symptoms. I would highly recommend her!

― K

I was referred to Monica by a co-worker and it was the best decision! She answers all questions, and explains her practice clearly! Monica is knowledgeable, approachable and makes you feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Monica

― Ashley

Monica is amazing what she does! You can tell she has a passion to help. Weather it was my knee, back, or just stress she does everything in her power to help with whatever ailment I am up against! Thank you Monica

― Ben

Monica knows what she’s doing. After a year of knee pain, with one treatment it was gone. She’s been working on my back and neck now and I’ve never felt looser. I haven’t been to my massage therapist in months.

― Allison

I injured my lower back during a workout and woke up the next morning in great pain. After a couple of days it got worse to the point I had a hard time walking and felt nauseous feeling like a pinched nerve in my lower back. I searched online for a reputable acupuncturist and found Monica. At my first appointment I answered a few questions so Monica could understand what happened and where the pain was located. She knew exactly what I was talking about. Monica was easy to talk to and very professional she covered all the bases and at the end of the first session I felt at least 50 percent better and every session afterwards as well, she had me back up to 100 percent in 4 treatments, I felt great and would recommend her to everyone I know and definitely go back to see her. Thanks Monica!

― Gabe

I was nervous trying acupuncture for the first time and was unsure as to which acupuncturist to go to. However, I am very happy I chose Monica because she provides such an inviting and relaxing environment. She has done wonders with my treatments. Monica’s expertise and passion for helping others keeps me coming back.

― Stacey

If you need results Monica is the one to see. I already went in thinking that acupuncture and cupping might be good but am truly shocked at how quickly her treatment has presented results! Her treatments should be mandatory.
