“Gina was amazing! Very caring and focused. At one point, she told me that if I ever have questions I should call or e-mail her and she will reply the same day. She even said I should do that instead of asking “Dr. Google”. I think it was at this point that I wanted to cry. Her tender concern and validation of the issues with my cycle was so overwhelming and amazing. I don’t think I have EVER been listened to like that by any Dr. before. My reaction, and the rush of gratitude I felt for her, really drove home how disconnected I’ve been feeling in my experience with Western medicine. I suddenly felt that all my concerns were valid and that I wasn’t crazy or stupid… that she trusted me to know my own body. What an immense relief!”

Dear Gina Karly and all staff at HIHF. I don’t know where to begin my gratitude to everyone at the HIHF and I’m so glad I found you guys. My husband and I knew we wanted to start a family right away after getting married, however it became very clear early on it wasn’t going to be easy for us. It never felt right at the fertility clinic with their, “try these drugs and if that doesn’t work will move you to more powerful drugs and costly procedures approach.” I tell everyone Emily is my acupuncture baby and I don’t know where we would be without your support. Thank you so much!”

~Kimberly and Emily, Calgary, AB

“Gina was amazing. She is extremely gentle, she talks you through everything, and she even worked on me with tuning forks which I really love. You can feel the energy literally radiating throughout your entire body. Also, at one point during the session, I started to have a hormonal hot flash thanks to the fertility meds, and so she inserted needles into a couple of points on each of my feet. Almost instantly I had relief from the waves of heat. It was amazing! I’ve always believed in the positive effects of acupuncture, but it was incredible to get such an instant result.”

~Kate and Nate: Parents in Waiting,, Calgary, AB

“I truly recommend seeing Gina. I look forward to my sessions with her every 2 weeks and always leave feeling relaxed and centered. She is very patient and always takes the time to listen to any concerns, answer any questions, or share in struggles or celebrations. She is very knowledgeable and highly skilled, so much so that I often find that I forget about the needles she placed in me and find myself drifting in and out of relaxing acupuncture naps. I feel truly blessed to have found Gina!

~Tiffany Kopp, Calgary, AB

“Gina is an Excellent Acupuncturist, I have been seeing her for about 7 months now, and she has always been very professional and very helpful in both advice for a good and healthy lifestyle as well with her Acupuncture and cupping skills. I would highly recommend Gina if you are having troubles she is one of those people that listens to what you say and looks at the whole picture before making a treatment recommendation and treating. Gina is also a very enthusiastic and happy outgoing person you can’t help but leaving a treatment in a much happier mood then you came in. You will not even remember the needles she had punctured you with..

~Rahim Manji, Calgary, AB

“Hey Gina. Just wanted to reach out and say thank you. I had been having such a hard week and was barely scraping my sh*t together when I saw you yesterday. The combination of talking with someone who got it and who really saw me as well as the ear seeds really, really helped. Yesterday continued to be a crazy, ridiculous day but I dealt with it well and had no almost panic attacks! After a week of fighting myself every day to keep the chatter in my head down that was like a god send. So thank you for being a fabulous human being, letting me vent and giving me ear seeds without an appointment. It means a lot to me to have found you on this journey and am beyond grateful that you are in my life.”

~Unpregnant Chicken, Calgary, AB

“I began seeing Gina in March of 2011 for general health and well being but soon after she was supporting me to find a healthy balance in fertility and my pregnancy.

Throughout my journey with Gina I knew that I was in good hands.  Her knowledge of acupuncture and fertility along with her compassionate heart make her a very special practitioner.  I felt very confident and cared for in her treatments from conception, pregnancy, labour preparation and post-pardum.  She was always so attentive, going above and beyond to ensure that I was supported in the best ways possible.  I had some complications in my pregnancy upon which Gina was very involved in helping us through.  As a result, I am overwhelmed with gratitude and emotion for everything that Gina has given to bring our beautiful daughter into this world in the healthiest way possible. She is truly an exceptional and outstanding acupuncturist and individual!!”

~J.M., Calgary, AB

“I have had the most powerful release of my venue of expression after I got my first session with Dr. Gina Rino. I felt liberated. She used the acutonic forks on various meridians and along my spine with skills and mastery and also placed some seeds acupuncture in my ear to prolong the effects of the treatment. I warmly recommend her as an acupuncture doctor, if you are interested in obtaining results. A+”

~Anick Brouillet, Massage therapist chez Carpe Diem Holistic practitioner, Calgary, AB

“The service provided by this clinic is exceptional! GINA, my acupuncturist listens to my needs and her treatments are pure BLISS. The ambiance of the clinic is very ZEN….love the artwork. This clinic is just what Calgary needs.”

~L.J, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

“Have been fighting this cough for weeks so I finally saw Gina Rino for acupuncture yesterday and the tightness in my chest has been greatly reduced. The treatment was not only very helpful but beautiful. The whole clinic is beautiful. I wish this clinic had existed when I was having babies!”

~J.S, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Dear Gina and Laura. Thank you both so much for helping me restore my balance and health again. After years of dealing with a serious thyroid condition, I am happy to report that the specialist has confirmed I no longer need medication-Yipee! I am so pleased… Just wanted to pass on the great news and thank you for supporting me through this transformation!”

~Helen Jacobs, Calgary, AB

“Dr. Gina is a very talented and gifted practitioner. I am very impressed with her gentle touch, her efficiency and the extent to which she will go to make her clients feel special. I would recommend her without hesitation for any Fertility & Women’s Health issues, as well as for any cosmetic acupuncture work.”

~ Dr. Christine Fernandes,, Calgary, AB

“What makes someone special-independence, professionalism, expertise, intelligence…..Gina possesses these qualities which in turn makes her a valued member of our team.”

~ Dr. Ann Zee, Clinic Director, Holistic Institute of Health & Fertility,, Calgary, AB

“I would like to express my appreciation for your compassionate professionalism and the expertise with which you are treating my allergies and asthma. I have suffered from allergies and asthma from the age of three. You have been very patient and informative in answering my questions, overall health and treatments. Your facility is very calming and comfortable. I had the opportunity to have a treatment elsewhere and the experience was nowhere near as comfortable, relaxing or professional as my experience at the Holistic Institute of Health and Fertility. I have gone periods without the use of my inhaler, which is unprecedented. I find the acupuncture and hernbal medicines are helping to reduce the amount of medicine I have to take as well as allowing me to be around some animals wihtout symptoms at all. An added benefit is that I am so relaxed after a treatment. It is like I have been to a relaxing spa for hours after.  

Thank you Gina, for this peaceful and drug fee solution.”

~Neal Andersen, Electrician Magician,, Calgary, AB

“I want to thank you for the quality of service you provided. You did a little [acupuncture] demo on my hand and that was enough for me.  My hand felt great. I decided to try it on my shoulder and came away with some fantastic results. You were informative, explaining everything that was happening as you went along, ensuring that I was comfortable through the whole process (and when someone is putting a whole lot of needles into you, that is a major bonus.) I never thought that needles could tickle. The atmosphere was quite relaxing as I almost fell asleep a coupleof times and when everything was done, I felt better than I have in years. I can lift my arm to almost 90 degress.  Before, I could maybe get half of that. I can’t thank you enough for helping to restore my mobility and to severly lessening the degree of discomfort I was feeling.

Thanks again. I can not express enough gratitude.”

~Michael Desjardine, Sears Chinook, Calgary, AB.

“My experience with Gina has been fantastic! Gina is very professional and has a wonderful energy about her in her work! With every visit, she has always made me feel very relaxed and comfortable, even when I am speaking on matters of a personal or private nature. I have even felt a heightened energy level after the treatments. For a very ling time, I have suffered from extremely bad arthritis in my knee and over the last few years, my sinuses have been a huge problem. Since seeing Gina, both issues are almost 100% resolved. I have very minimal pain in my knee and greater range of motion! This had made my life so much easier. I can breathe again! The pain in my sinuses has been greatly reduced.

I have always felt very comfortable and welcome by Gina and the staff at the clinic. I will most definitely be recommending Gina to my friends and family. If she can make me feel better she can make anyone feel better!”

~Angela McCullough, Calgary, AB

“I was in major pain from my carpel tunnel. I could not even hold a pen. I was wearing a wrist brace to help me to keep going at work. My doctor said the only cure was surgery which I didn’t really want as I would be out of work for 6 weeks! I called Gina and set up an appointment. And to be honest, I didn’t think it would work. But after three, one hour sessions, my pain was gone. I was able to remove my brace. After the sixth session, my wrist was back to normal, as if I never had pain at all. I was able to suse my wrist normally.

Gina was very comforting, supportive and very informative as to what she was doing and why she was putting needles in the spots that she was. I’m afraid of needles but it was a comforting experience. She is very professional and I highly recomend her. 

Having this acupuncture saved me from taking time from work and made it easier for me to continue to do my every day things.”

~ Christine G, Calgary, AB

“I know I was only in to see you once, but you have been extremely valuable with the information you provided to me….Thank you again, Gina, I really appreciate it.”

~Shelley,  Newfoundland

“In 2010 you helped me a great deal through your sensitive and highly skilled use of acupuncture, aromatherapy, [acutonics] tone therapy, and other holistic therapeutic approaches. From alleviating stress and anxiety to reducing the frequency of my migraines, you dramatically improved the quality of my life and I am tremendously grateful.”

~Dania Sheldon, editor and writer,, Vancouver, BC
