I truly believe that I met Dr. Krista Coombs for a reason. My body was off balance & with the introduction of Chinese herbs and acupuncture my cycles became healthier and in addition, I felt more at ease and relaxed. My fertility journey was a long one but I truly believe that my body needed a restart before I could conceive my 2nd child. After multiple failed IUIs I was blessed with a healthy beautiful baby girl on our first IVF attempt. I truly believe that Dr. Coomb’s expertise with fertility acupuncture helped my body get prepared and ready for my little embryo’s journey. I also did an acupuncture treatment to induce my labour naturally and it was my most favourite and best acupuncture appointment to date. My labour started within 4 hours of my treatment and I gave birth without drugs within 6 hours. Thank you Dr. Krista for not only your help with my fertility issues but for a wonderful friendship. I would highly recommend Dr. Krista Coombs for anything acupuncture related. I was a skeptic at first but I saw results and am truly blessed for what came out of it.” ~ Leanne K.
I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Krista over the last 3 years. I was referred to her by a friend that was also going through fertility treatments. I was very open to an “alternative” type of treatment. Dr. Krista spent a great quality of time with me, explaining what she thought to be the issue with my cycle. I was recommended to start taking herbs (which were not the best tasting pills I have ever tasted) but I was willing to try anything to have a baby. I truly feel that over the years, the acupuncture treatments and the herbs truly made my body in tip top shape to prepare to become pregnant. I could eat the right foods and exercise but getting my qi flowing in my body was something that only Dr. Krista could assist me with. She is very educated in her field, but also very caring and sweet. She truly wants the best for you and to help you be your best.
I would highly recommend Dr. Krista’s services to anyone. The treatment itself I find doesn’t hurt, its one prick of a needle followed by an intense amount of relaxation for me. I literally have found myself snoring from being so relaxed and waking myself up from a very meditative state. I find it the best time to really find myself and connect with my body. Listening to what my body needs and for Dr. Krista to work her magic.
I recently found out that I am expecting and I believe that receiving the acupuncture treatments before and after the transfer truly assisted me in getting pregnant. Thank you Dr. Krista, not only for your services over the years but for your friendship. You are truly amazing and gifted with your work. Your attitude and drive will continue to provide you success over the years to come.” ~ Nicole B.
In 2014 I had broken down and made an appointment with an acupuncturist, Dr. Krista Coombs, because my regular doctor keep telling me that there was nothing wrong with me, even though I had told him repeatedly that I feel like I was living in a fog and that I was in constant pain from my recent foot injury. The first question that she asked me that stuck with me was, “When will I start putting myself first and taking care of myself?” After many tissues I had my first treatment, and she explained what each needle was for and she has such a bubbly personable personality that she put me at easy right away. Within minutes I was relaxed, the pain was almost gone and everything was clear. That night I had the best sleep that I had had for months! That was when I was hooked and I have been coming back at least once a month since then. She has helped me through my SI joint injury and pain, including helping me with many food allergies, and I am now down to two prescription drugs and life can not be better.
I would highly recommend Dr. Krista!” ~ Cristina Q.
By the time I found Dr. Coombs I had exhausted every specialist out there (gynecologists, internists, endocrinologists…you name it!), every medication and medication to counteract those medications’ side effects. I lost multiple pregnancies and was told I would never carry a child full-term and that my pain, excessive bleeding, etc. was severe enough a complete hysterectomy was the only full answer. I knew in my heart I could not give up and when I learned of Dr. Krista and the fact that she specialized in Fertility I knew I had to work with her. I committed myself fully and did everything she told me to do (which I strongly believe was the key to my success – it may be expensive to go every week or multiple times a week and take the herbs but I do not believe you can reset your body that works hard to keep old patterns all day/night long with just an hour of treatment here and there = you must commit yourself, put your trust in her and give it all you’ve got!). Dr. Coombs stayed late, came in early, and was always available should I have any questions or concerns. She made me feel like I mattered and that she wasn’t in this for the money – she truly cared! With in a matter of months I became pregnant and gave birth to a beautiful baby boy 9 months later…I believe this would not have been possible with her help to heal my mind, body and soul! Forever grateful.” ~ Heather S.
Dr. Krista came into my life at a low time. I had just come off chemo and had neuropathy affecting my feet. When I think back, I was also very weak. She gave me a pep talk and a nutrition plan. Suggested lots of supplements and general good advice. The acupuncture did amazing things. At first I went twice a week, then once a week. I now go once a month. Feet are almost back to normal but what a difference it made. The supplements and nutrition plan also helped so much.
I have lost Dr. Krista to Lethbridge (lucky you) and now have another acupuncturist who is also helping me. It has been two years since this journey started. I visited my oncologist yesterday and my blood work is good and I don’t have to go back to see him for 6 months. Thank you Dr. Krista for the amazing things you have done in my life. I will forever be grateful for your help.” ~ Laurie M.
Dr. Krista has been amazing! She worked with my own personal choices to give me really amazing treatment. She is very thorough in her explanations and truly personalizes her treatment to my needs. I had never tried acupuncture before and she made it very comfortable for me. Her dedication to improving my situation proved successful! I am nothing but amazed by the power of acupuncture and thrilled by her willingness to truly go the extra mile to assist me with a plan that is specific to my needs. Lethbridge is very lucky that she has opened her new clinic here!!!” ~ Nicole S.
Dr. Krista helped me with both my knee and neck issues. After only a couple of sessions, my sleeping improved and most of the numbness had gone from my arms, fingers and hands. Before each treatment Dr. Krista took the time to find out how I was feeling; physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. She offered suggestions regarding nutrition, giving me simple recipes to try! She was never judgmental only encouraging and caring. I would recommend that anyone considering acupuncture to seek out Dr. Krista! You won’t be disappointed.” ~ Kandee C.
Even though I only knew you a short time, my experience as your patient changed my life in so many positive ways, including becoming pregnant. Wishing you all the best on this new business venture! ~ Lorraine S.
When I first met with Dr. Krista I had been suffering from a 6 week long migraine. I had tried everything I could think of, and trying out acupuncture was a last resort due to my fear of needles. For as long as I can remember I have always had neck pain and resulting migraines, but a hormonal change from going off the pill really set it off and resulted in a migraine that I couldn’t get rid of. My family doctor had prescribed me strong painkillers, I started going to the chiropractor again, and for several deep massages. Nothing had any effect until my first visit with Dr. Krista.
During my first consultation I could tell that she truly cared about my wellbeing and genuinely wanted to help me. She asked a ton of questions and made sure she understood my situation before starting. The needles were not bad at all, I could feel the odd one but that was it. Immediately afterwards I noticed some relief, and I felt like I had woken up from a 4 hour nap. I wasn’t completely better but the pain had subsided to a tolerable level. Over the course of a couple months my migraines became less frequent to the point where they have become non existent for me. Shortly after my visits became routine maintenance, Dr. Krista informed me that she would be moving to Lethbridge and leaving her practice in Medicine Hat. It kind of broke my heart because it is so difficult to find someone who can not only make you feel considerably better, but truly cares about your progress. I highly recommend her if you are considering trying acupuncture for the first time, or if you are already comfortable with it. I wish she was still working here in Medicine Hat as she made such a positive effect on my wellbeing. However, I wish her all the best with her new practice in Lethbridge and continued success with helping others. If she ever decides to move back, I will happily return as her patient. Thanks Dr. Krista.” ~ Ashley K.
