I regularly visit this clinic for acupuncture treatments and massage therapy. Any problem I have is not a problem after acupuncture treatment. Yelena with her knowledge and experience check all the body and eliminate the health issues one by one. Recomment this clinic as the best in Edmonton.
This clinic is a Paradise, in one session of acupuncture I got rid of a spasm in my neck. Elena is very pleasant and sociable. I will recommend Elena as a good specialist to everyone I know. Elena has experience since 2006 and provides a full range of acupuncture and massage services. Also I was at the massage with Valery, after the massage I feel great: fatigue in the legs, tightness has passed. Feel renewed and fresh.Very clean. Frendly staff. They find an approach to any visitor. They work on benefits.Recommended!

For a long time I've heard about wonderful Yelena and her amazing work, but went to see her when the pain of my shoulder became unbearable. After the very first treatment, I felt like a reborn. Yelena has golden hands! She is healing us equally with her work as with her words. I am so blessed and grateful that I met her, and looking forward to continue with treatments. Thank you to infinity and beyond, dear Yelena.

I was referred to Yelena by a colleague last year when I was having muscle spasms in my back. Yelena treated this as well as some other long term pain that I had from old injuries. After just one treatment my pain subsided considerably. I continue to see Yelena on a maintenance basis for my old injuries. Yelena took the time to diagnose my medical needs and provide effective treatment. She explains what she is doing while providing treatment. I am grateful that my colleague referred her name to me.

I never tried acupuncture before and I had no idea that it works.I came to see Yelena for acupuncture treatments for my chronic lower back pain,kidneys and lymphatic stagnation problems. I was so much impressed that my kidneys function better, my lower back doesn’t bother me and my lymphatic circulation improved. I am so happy I found Yelena and I can always be helped with any health problem.I recommend this nice and comfortable clinic and especially acupuncture services to everyone.

It was so lucky for me to meet Yelena on time.I got Bell palsy on my face. All the right side of my face can't move. My right eye can't close either. I can only smile with my left side. It was so stressed at that time. But after 5 treatments, I recovered with 90% of my face working like normal.She's not only help you to recover your injured neurology, but also advise you how to have a healthy mindset.I so appreciate her helping.Highly recommend for everyone!!!

I came here with chronic rheumatoid arthritis. I was very impressed that after two treatments I had no pain. And since then if my health is trouble I know that I am always helped by Yelena. She is very professional , knows what she is doing and straight to point.
I came to the live by design clinic in the fall of 2022 with unbearable pain in my knees that i have had for a number of years. I had a hard time getting upstairs, going downstairs and getting up from sitting down. Right after the first treatment i felt a big difference. The pain has subsided tremendously and i could move easier than before. As of today, i feel revitalized and rejuvenated. I can stand up without help and have no pain at all. Moreover, i love that Yelena takes the time to listen to issues that come along the way and takes care of them respectively. She truly is a master of the acupuncture and i am grateful for her services as her hands are gold. Besides, the treatments she gives me great wisdom tips. All and all i highly recommend her services.
I have been going to see Yelena for quite a few years now. She has helped me to heal problems with shoulder issues, sciatica, and tmj, etc…. While she is very learned in the methods she uses, more importantly to me, she takes a “whole body approach” to her treatment. She will most definitely deal with whatever issue you come to see her for, but she will also do treatments to boost organ functions, help with your energy, talk to you about many things all the while listening with her ears, eyes and fingers to place needles exactly where you need them to make sure you get the best treatment possible and leave feeling much better than you did coming in.

Jolena is amazing! I've had many acupuncture treatments before and this is by far the best. Japanese acupuncture which was a first and I am hooked. She is so knowledgeable, gifted and incredibly kind! I will definitely be back and referring everyone to her. Thanks Jolena!
Honestly a place worth going to 100%Came in with back pain and left like a new born. Lena takes very good care of you, explains everything and makes sure that you are satisfied. I've visited a few different places and I can proudly say that this is the best one, so good that I don't need to go anywhere else she takes care of all your needs. Truly an amazing experience that can't be put into enough words.HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

INCREDIBLE WORK 🙂I was suffering from acid reflex for almost 2 years. I went to specialist few times and they suggested strong, regular medication. After visiting Yelena only once, I felt 50% better. I felt the feeling of being healthy again. I felt so light and relaxed after my treatment. She found few other parts in my body that needs to be treated. I will definitely continue my sessions with her.She is a true Gem 💎 In Edmonton.100% recommend her to everyone. Go see Yelena for any health concerns you might have.

Incredible acupuncture experience!! I've tried a number of acupuncturists in Edmonton and Calgary and have never had much luck. My experience with Yelena was incredible, so much better than any other acupuncturist out there, a league of her own. Can't recommend enough!

Yelena is the best acupuncturist I have ever been to - and I have seen quite a few practitioners! At each visit, Yelena takes her time with me and gives me her undivided attention and presence during the treatment. She does not just stick needles in and then leaves the room for half an hour - instead, she is actively working on you for most of the treatment time, carefully palpating different regions of the body while inserting needles to ensure she is facilitating measurable improvements in the body as she goes. This is what makes Yelena's treatment approach very unique. In fact, to my knowledge, she is the only practitioner in Edmonton who trained extensively under the renowned Kiiko Matsumoto in the US. I am so grateful to have found such a skilled acupuncturist. After each treatment, I feel noticably better, and my sleep and anxiety have much improved as well. I highly recommend Yelena for any health concerns you may have.

Yelena is great at what she does. I went in with concern to conceive but found that her treatments did not only help me conceive but helped other very important issues with my body. She has helped me to come off of medication that my doctors told me I would have to be on for life. Now I don’t have to take those meds and nor do have those issues. While she was helping me to become healthier, in her care I was able to conceive and hold the baby to full term. I now have a beautiful healthy baby boy. Thank you Yelena for preparing my body and mind to be healthy place for my baby.

A True Miracle worker, Yelena has been my go to Acupuncture Practitioner for over 10 years now. I come to her with absolutely any health concern, and I know that I am in good hands. Yelena is one of the few professionals that treats me with personal care and she is always result oriented. In my opinion, Yelena Grabko is the Top Acupuncture Practitioner in Edmonton. I highly recommend her services to everyone who is seeking healing.Also, I would like to give my feedback on a Massage Therapist Valeri that operates from the same clinic. Val has some cool stretching techniques he combines with the massage. Which in turn gives an amazingly rejuvenated feeling to the body.I highly recommend the combo of acupuncture and massage. It feels like they work great together like chocolate and vanilla helping me to restore my well being in one or two visits depending on the body's condition I come with. The atmosphere in the clinic is very family like and very inviting. Greatly appreciated everything you do for me and my family. You deserve way more stars than is being offered on google.Sincerely,Dina

Yelena is an excellent acupuncturist. Never been to anyone as skilled as her. She practices Japanese acupuncture technique, which is painless and super effective. In some cases she has removed my pain after only one session. I strongly recommend her services

This husband and wife duo will have you feeling better than ever! Yelena is the acupuncturist and has an incredible handle on the human body and how to keep it healthy. She is also a very profound and intelligent person in regards to living your best life. I always leave with a great acupuncture treatment and a useful life lesson. Valerie is the massage therapist and has helped get rid of many aches and pains I get from a ergonomically unfriendly job. Live by design is an important part of my healthcare and has definitely helped me keep working and living pain free and healthy. I recommend to all.

Yelena provides services for both mind and body. She cured my carpal tunnel on both wrists, which was to the point of having surgery, in only three visits. However, both wrists felt much improved after the first visit. It felt miraculous. Yelena can balance your body so those annoying aches and pains disappear. I highly recommend everyone get their body’s ‘tuned up.’ You will wonder why you waited so long. Also, You might want to have one of Valerie’s excellent massages after your acupuncture treatment. Talk about a great ‘spa experience.’
