A How To Manual For Friendship

15 November 2015

Have you ever had one of those weeks that start out on an astonishingly amazing note and then someone smites you with the “you do not deserve to be happy” stick? You never really see it coming. And holy man, it stings like a mother. Meet: my week. I had a most lovely Monday followed…


  • Cary Rendek was instrumental in ensuring I had the best possible success during my fertility treatments. She is kind and really cares about her patients. You will feel nurtured and prepared for what life has in store for you. I feel lucky to have her in my corner.

  • I came to the realization that I had some unresolved issues from my childhood that I needed to address. I did a series of weekly sessions with Kira Lynne to work through these issues. Kira put me at ease right from the very first session, working gradually towards getting to the root of these feelings. With her warm and trusting demeanor, she guided me thru the necessary questions I needed to address from my past. Together we came up with a personalized healing strategy that I found to be very beneficial. I left each session feeling more at peace with the past, with a better understanding of myself, of the person I am, and why. I would definitely recommend Kira to anyone of my family or friends who would like counselling.

  • Working with Cary Rendek in my healing has been an exceptionally wonderful experience! She has helped me to move forward in a highly positive manner in my evolution; and has helped to anchor much compassion along every step of the journey. She brings that wonderful balance of intuition, emotional capacity, skill and dedication to her work with people. I would highly recommend Cary and her work to anyone who asks.

  • I had been significantly injured via 2 car accidents, four years prior to being successfully treated by Cary. After a few sessions with her I began noticing my body react very positively to her treatments: my energy shifted, my symptoms lessened, and my whole being began to heal like it had never before. My overall health changed course for the better after I began my acupuncture treatments with Cary. She is thorough, diligent, caring, and really tries to understand what her patients need. I regularly recommend her to anyone I know who's injured, energetically stuck, and/or looking to heal themselves.

  • I went to see Cary for stress pain and anxiety. The atmosphere was calm, clean and professional. My treatment included acupuncture, acupressure and massage. I felt amazing after and have been back since. I have recommended Cary to friends and family and will continue to do so.

  • I see Cary Rendek for acupuncture. She's wonderful. We hit it off right away. She is so easy to talk to and is passionate about helping her patients. I originally came in due to back pain and the acupuncture has really helped. We're also doing a food cleanse, which is something I had been wanting to try and am excited to have someone guide me through it.

    As an aside, I am totally out of it after my acupuncture appointment and only schedule them on my day off. So consider yourself warned (although not everyone reacts the same way).

    I am so happy with Cary and would recommend her to anyone!

  • I saw Kent Smith for an issue I was having with my hip and quads. He performed a thorough assessment on me and then gave me one of the best deep tissue massages I have ever had. I am an RMT myself, have been massaged by countless RMTs.

    I highly recommend Kent, not only for his treatment efficacy, but for his calming personality and focus on his work.

  • Kira Lynne has an exceptional knowledge of what is needed to create wellness and happiness in your life. She is able to approach your journey to wellness from a nutritional as well as psychological viewpoint. I have worked with Kira for several months and have found her to be knowledgeable, non-judgmental and caring. With her support I was able to reach goals I would not have on my own. I will gladly work with Kira again and believe that she is a great choice as a coach or counsellor, especially in the area of chronic disease management.

    Melanie S
  • Kira Lynne has been pivotal on my journey with my business and personal life. She encourages, and calls forth the best of my dreams and visions and helps me bring together the pieces to make it happen. Her incredible intuition has ignited key insights that have accelerated my growth immensely. I would highly recommend Kira as a Coach and Counsellor, I am so grateful for all that has unfolded since working with her. It has truly been life changing.
