Eczema & Lymphedema
I am treated at Soma Clinic for my eczema problem. And this eczema also causes lymphedema. I also have something around my ankle. Fynn has been helping me with lymphatic drainage. The effect is immediate. The swelling has gone down. I would recommend Fynn to anyone who has lymphedema. Fynn… Thank you!
Eczema & Gastroenteritis, with Grief
Appreciate the multi disciplinary approach to patient care in SOMA. The TCM herbs and acupuncture treatments were effective. The acupuncturist listened well and instinctively knew when other approaches were necessary (Lymphatic Drainage, Craniosacral Therapy). I have found the practitioners very understanding and knowledgeable. Thank you all.

Chronic Migraine, Anxiety
For the past four years, I’ve suffered chronic migraine headaches. Despite taking preventative medication and others to treat more acute attacks, I was still in pain more often than not, and it was having a huge affect on my day to day life as a mother and at work. I decided I needed to take a new approach and look at alternative ways to improve my condition. I began meditating and, as is often the case when we open ourselves up to new possibilities, a friend happened to recommend Natalia Rachel to me.
I immediately felt at ease and heard by Natalia. I appreciated that she too had suffered chronic pain in the past so could empathise with how debilitating it could be. In our first session I could feel the physical sensations of my nervous system turning down through cranialsacral touch. We’ve combined that work with talk therapy so that I could begin to identify triggers and learn tools to use at home or work to turn down my nervous system when it begins to vamp up. I find myself relaxed and well after our sessions, and Natalia offers support between sessions by being available by email. Natalia also recommended me to Mark Chern, acupuncturist within Soma Clinic, and that proved to be another important part to the improvements I’ve experiences as he in turn recommended a naturopath who identified my need for more magnesium among other supplements.
All of these practices combined have eased my headaches greatly and I’m now almost two months free of taking my medication for acute migraines. I highly recommend Natalia to anyone who is suffering chronic pain or is exploring alternative therapies to heal, reset and restore.
Recurring Neck Pain & Tinnitus
Fynn has tremendous experience with the lymphatic system and the treatments with her have been and continue to be essential to my healing process. Thank you!

Irritable Bowel Syndrome
I wanted to take a moment to write about how much I sincerely appreciate Fynn and how she has impacted my health in a huge way in a very short time-frame.
“Where have you been all my life??” I try and visit the clinic weekly and I look forward to seeing her and the changes she is making on my health. Thank you Fynn!

Pain, Anxiety, Unexplained Dizziness
At Soma Clinic, Natalia was recommended to me due to the nature of my health problems, where traditional medicine was dealing with the symptoms and not addressing the initial problems. From day 1, I’ve felt at ease and safe with Natalie trusting her process and expertise implicitly. She is gentle, kind and listens without judgement. I’ve been able to share deeply personal information through talking therapy followed by a somatic gentle hands on experience which has enabled my body to process in its own way. My physical ailments have no obvious diagnosis, so seeing Natalia has enabled me to process deep emotional experiences in my life in a safe and holistic environment.
I feel this is the right therapy for me due to my history as a dancer. Natalia’s somatic hands on therapy, which is gentle and sensitive to my needs, unlocks tension and charges within my body that need to be released. Natalia is a skilled facilitator, witness and experienced bodyworker who intuitively knows how to guide through touch and voice enabling my body to self heal. Following the sessions I take time to allow my body and mind to process the session and follow any practical exercises Natalia has shared with me.
I would recommend Natalia to anyone who finds deep rooted issues are still impacting their current life and would like a gentle, somatic therapy to help the body release in its own time and in its own unique way.
Healthcare of the future
I wanted to express my thanks and share with others how Dr. Mark Chern (a Chinese herbalist and acupuncturist) and his colleague Fynn Lim ( who helped me with Lymphatic Drainage), worked in tandem, to assist me manage my eczema. ( and all under 1 roof- and the location is convenient)
They coordinated my treatment, which in my case the excessive water retention (and certain foods), triggers the outbreak. ( Mark also helped me breakdown and eliminate the options and gave me useful tips)
I am so grateful, because I now know and can make very conscious and targeted decisions on what I eat, what kind of exercise suits me (so I can choose what to do for best results). It’s a process of getting to know myself, through the pain, and have a group of people guide you so it’s just not so “scary”.
I continue to work with them, to understand and manage my health, I am in my 40s, and prefer to work on maintenance now before I get any older. Its liberating, and now after 6 months, and almost a fun process now!
I came to Fynn after experiencing edema following childbirth and some hormonal issue. She has been incredible at clearing the water retention but also in educating me as to why and how it builds up. Look forward to seeing her each time!
Soma Clinic took amazing care of me after 4 years of infertility. They treated me very thoroughly with acupuncture and herbs as well as they listen to me on my emotional ups and downs. After three months of treatment I got pregnant.
Topical Steroid Withdrawal, Eczema
Dr. Came here on 10 Jan’17 for treatment for my eczema for about 6 months after I knew from a colleague about Soma Clinic as my condition flare and I have this condition since young. Started out with whole body symptoms which made me really hard to get to sleep at night because of the itch and some days didn’t get to have a good rest at all. After regular treatment, it really helped with the itch and inflammation reduced.
I really liked how they incorporated herbs which are regularly modified and acupuncture in the process of treatment. And how they get weekly updates from patients and are concern about the patient’s well-being. (Which most doctors only prescribed medicine) Dr. Mark is a very good listener/encourager and also gave very good advice on the food to avoid/stuffs to use etc. and gave great diagnosis about the condition and treatment recommended. Now on my recovery journey and they still helped me a lot in my recovery process. Recommend to have a go with Soma Clinic if you have any types of skin conditions or experiencing any problems! ◡̈
