SUCCESS STORIES

CIJAYE and TERENCE DEPRADINE... When we heard about your work with our friends’ son we were very eager to meet you. Through each and every visit we learned that you were not only good and more than capable at your work, but that you genuinely cared about your patients. You greeted our son not only by name but with casual commentary about his life and leisure activities during every appointment. You even followed up on previous comments only discussed in previous meetings.

I am writing this letter today in hopes that it serves you and your business well someday.  I know first-hand, just how valuable happy customers are. And I am definitely one of them. As you know, my husband and I brought our son to see you approx. 1 year ago (give or take a few months). We were referred by a friend who could not stop singing your praises.

Our friend brought her son in to you with extensive allergies and food sensitivities. They had already done a lot to treat him (including adenoid surgery) and none of it really worked. The long story short of this was that your care and treatment of this young man has more or less cured him. It prevented him and his parents from a lifetime of grief no doubt.

Having suffered from his own severe but common allergies as well, our son was also in need.  He was always a MVP in sports, but his allergies kicked his immune system down so bad that the harder he played the harder he fell. The common cold was debilitating every time it hit and of course – he was susceptible to them all. As to be expected he also caught H1N1 when it broke out in the Vancouver area. We had never seen him that bad before but future flu’s started to take on similar effects.

When we heard about your work with our friends’ son we were very eager to meet you. Through each and every visit we learned that you were not only good and more than capable at your work, but that you genuinely cared about your patients. You greeted our son not only by name but with casual commentary about his life and leisure activities during every appointment. You even followed up on previous comments only discussed in previous meetings. But most important, when you were already making progress with our son’s health you admitted whole heartedly that it wasn’t speedy enough for your liking and you referred us elsewhere. You were ok to send us away if it meant he’d get better treatment.  That was extremely admirable and has not at all gone unnoticed.

That said, your initial work and that referral combined have since saved our sons life as far as we are concerned we learned some new things about his organ functions that we would have never known before. The protocols he was placed on have helped him avoid any major allergies (including those he was almost always guaranteed to get when visiting his best friend). The common cold no longer knocks him out for days on end and all in all his ability to “stay in the game” is outstanding now!

We will be forever grateful for all of the time and effort you have put forward with our son. We sing your praises to everyone we know and again, we hope that you continue  to thrive in this business as the world needs you!

Over the 6 months of working with you, Dr. Wood, I have been getting better all the time. It feels like a miracle has happened in my life. I am no longer using my inhaler at all, and I am able to run 10 blocks without wheezing or laboured breathing, and I am sleeping peacefully through the night.

I began seeing Peter Wood in the middle of 2006 as part of an overall wellness regime and in an attempt to assist with improving three specific health and wellness issues. These related to back pain, digestive discomfort and foot soreness; after many years of trying other alternate remedies with little or no success.

To date, all symptoms have been relieved to the point that they now cause me little or no discomfort and I can only attribute this to the regime that I have been following, as I have not been to any other health practitioner.

Peter is always extremely aware and responsive to patient’s issues and has a great and rate ability to listen.

I would unequivocally recommend Peter to anyone considering embarking on such a beneficial and non-intrusive therapy.

Yours Truly.

I would unequivocally recommend Peter to anyone considering embarking on such a beneficial and non-intrusive therapy.

In May of 2006, I was fortunate enough to meet Peter Wood in his professional capacity as Acupuncturist. For some 6 years prior to this, I had been suffering from progressively severe lower back pain, which had spread upwards to my shoulders and neck. Fortnightly chiropractic adjustments relieved the pain on a temporary basis, but did nothing to address the symptoms and causes. After my first session with Peter, I became aware that acupuncture is a non-aggressive form of medicine, with many far-reaching benefits. This was pleasing, inasmuch as I had begun to feel uncomfortable about the amount of ‘cracking’ my body was receiving. I have continued my treatments with Peter for some 6 months now and I am happy to be able to say that the results have been extremely encouraging. Not only have my physical ailments lessened considerably, but my mental well-being has also improved. For me, Peter serves a dual role – acupuncturist and psychologist. I didn’t realize this at first, but slowly became aware that I got almost as much benefit from verbal interaction with him, as from the acupuncture.

I feel extremely comfortable in placing my body in his care and would not hesitate in recommending his services.

The acupuncture was calming and provided many other benefits including relaxation and stress relief as well as a full insight into my overall health. As my shoulder is back to normal, I can assure you that my visits to Peter Wood have not concluded. Acupuncture is painless and the only way to go. I am so looking forward to the next 500 needles!

A Grand Thank you,

Acupuncture, a traditional Chinese Medicine for Modern Healing, as Peter Wood’s business card to eloquently puts it.

A cold day, heavy snow falls and a massive driveway awaits my service in the shoveling department. A muscle in my shoulder has better ideas apparently and decides to pull and tear sending massive pain throughout my entire back. The next morning I was on the phone first thing, making an appointment to see my chiropractor.

Writhing in pain, I made several visits to see the chiropractor but there was simply no relief for the agonizing shoulder; mind you my back felt great. I made an appointment to see Peter Wood at his office and we got underway with the treatment after a thorough health questionnaire. Peter worked that muscle back into shape and took away the pain that caused me continual anguish daily, sleepless nights for weeks, and provided relief to my wife’s ear as she was truly tired of my disposition during this injury.

The acupuncture was calming and provided many other benefits including relaxation and stress relief as well as a full insight into my overall health. As my shoulder is back to normal, I can assure you that my visits to Peter Wood have not concluded. Acupuncture is painless and the only way to go. I am so looking forward to the next 500 needles!

Thank you!

It is a true miracle that I am free of asthma symptoms. I found you last year after reading an article in the Georgia Straight newspaper, which told the story of a woman whom you had treated and cured of asthma. Her story was so inspiring and almost unbelievable that I had to find you. So on a search I went to come meet you and start your asthma program.

I am 72 years old and had been living with asthma for a long time, having quit smoking 15 years ago; and the asthma had been getting worse for a long time. I was using my inhaler 5 times a day, spending countless dollars on these medications! I had to use it right before bed, or I would wake up with a start in the night, short of breath and in respiratory distress. I could not even walk 2 blocks without needing to stop to catch my breath.

Over the 6 months of working with you, Dr. Wood, I have been getting better all the time. It feels like a miracle has happened in my life. I am no longer using my inhaler at all, and I am able to run 10 blocks without wheezing or laboured breathing, and I am sleeping peacefully through the night.

The long and short of it is that it I am so grateful for that woman’s story being in the paper, and more grateful that I was able to find you. I had been looking for this solution for a long time, and it is natural. And I am well!

Thank you, Dr. Peter.
