What clients have to say about their results and experience
Vega Testing and Me
Like most people I lived my life unaware of how my body functioned because I did not care. Unaware and did not care of the correct foods for my body.
That all changed when I turned 62. I became sick and then sicker. I landed in the hospital in Victoria where my large intestine and part of my small were removed. The surgeons were highly skilled. The advise on how to look after my body and diet were not adequate.
I plodded along with my diet and lack of body function knowledge for 5 years. By chance I had a conversation about wellness with a knowledgable chiropractor. His suggestion was for me to get Vega testing. I was skeptical but knew I had to do something different. I booked a screening test.
As we progressed through the organ screening portion I was stunned at what was being revealed to me - about me. Some I knew, most I had no idea about. The food screening results were a bit depressing with many significant sensitivities.
The tester had promised me a Result and Recommendations package. I received the package with 5 recommendations which I followed quite closely. No sense expecting change unless you follow the plan!
Two months later I returned for a retest. Again what an eye opener. The organ screening showed significant improvement in all areas that had been identified as a problem. Th most important to me was finding that my small intestine was doing much better. The food screening showed me with 40% fewer things I was sensitive to with reduced sensitivity to many others which had been high.
The tester prepared a shortened set of recommendations. I was told that I did not have to come back. I plan on yearly testing.
I have gained some weight, muscle and feel better. I am pleased and impressed with what Vega Testing has done for me.

I met Kim 2 months ago. My main concern in my health at that time was a recent diagnosis of diverticulitis. I was in pain and confused about the direction I should take toward healing. Kim responded immediately to my email inquiring about her services. She was also able to almost immediately book me in for an assessment. Kim met me at the front desk with a smile and continued our session in a cheerful, kind, caring, compassionate and so very knowledgeable manner. I felt like I could do no wrong. (Even when I came up with the craziest 'self-diagnosis': "I looked on line with my (diverticulitis) symptoms, and I just KNEW I had ovarian cancer".) Gently, Kim took me through vega testing, kindly treating me - and my energy - with patience and clarity with her explanations. After some time with testing, then investigating, questioning and sharing information, Kim gave me a manageable number of things I could change with my daily routine. Not 100 things. Because I cannot do that. But 5 changes. Five very manageable additions/changes that made sense to me. I did not walk out of the clinic with a bag of pills. In fact, quite the contrary. Kim had made suggestions of additions to my daily regime that I could easily pick up at any health food store. For the next 6 weeks I followed Kim's suggestions. I kept a detailed daily account of what I was doing/adding/supplementing, and then I returned for a reassessment. I had already noticed a difference in my health. And Kim's follow up testing showed the same results. Kim is now fine-tuning my regime to further strengthen my health. At this point my diverticulitis has abated, my restless legs are more restful, and most importantly: I like my stomach again. Thank you, Kim. I would recommend - and already have - recommended you to my friends. PF Comox Valley, BC
Testimonial from Megan, September 2016...
This review is based on my Vega Testing experience with Kim. I had my initial appointment with Kim in August 2016. It was my first experience ever with a natural health practitioner and I was referred to Circles by a family member. I left a voicemail after business hours indicating that I would like to make an appointment and Kim called back the very next day. She explained to me what Vega testing is and how I might benefit from it. I was able to book an appointment for just a few days later at a time that fit my schedule. On the day of my appointment I waited for maybe 10 minutes and was then greeted by Kim who was finishing up with another client. We walked to a private room and Kim asked me general health questions and focused on my concerns which were skin/acne flare ups and menstrual cycle regulation. She then took the time to explain how Vega testing works and how we would proceed with the rest of the appointment. The initial Vega Testing appointment is very thorough and Kim goes through anything and everything that might react with your body system. At the end of the test Kim walked me through each and every result and what it meant for me and my body. It was truly an eye opening experience. The appointment concluded with Kim providing a write up of recommendations that included diet changes, supplement suggestions, cleanses, etc. Kim also suggested when to come back for a follow up test where she will re-check some of the issues that came up in the first test. I just had this follow-up appointment and it was validation that the health plan set up by Kim was working (but I already knew that of course just by the improvement of how I felt and the improving function of my body)! I am extremely pleased with the service and care I have received from Kim at Circles and plan to continue to visit as my body continues to change and mature. Thank you, Kim!
My daughter was going through some issues, primarily bedwetting. I had taken her to the doctor, and visited our local pediatrician, and without any success I was ready to pull my hair out. We heard about Circles Wellness Centre through a family member. With nothing to loose we decided to try vega testing. Turned out to be the best thing we did! And a huge thank you to Kim for her amazing help and support. She was so great with my 5 year old daughter that for a while, she kept asking when we were going back to see Kim! Amanda, Courtenay,BC
I have struggled with candida for years – my appointment with Kim opened my eyes on what my body needed to finally break the cycle.
It all made sense. Her advise and knowledge was life changing for me. My energy started to change within a few weeks – I went off my prescription medication for my Thyroid and I started to noticed an improvement in my weight and my well being. I now take natural supplements that work with my body. I no longer have the heavy periods and headaches every month.
I recommend Kim to everyone, she is inspiring and lovely to deal with. She helped me connect with what my body really needs.
Thank you Kim for all your support and your valuable knowledge.

"Kim is a warm, professional and a intuitive woman. She is easy to talk to and gives suggestions without making you feel inferior in any way. She is very helpful with your diet and any supplements you may need and follows up quickly with any questions you may have after your session. V.L."
Thanks for the incredible contribution you make to my well-being. Your skill in vega testing reliably identifies the foods I'm failing to digest and systems that are not functioning optimally. I never fail to marvel at how your advice on eating behavior and supplements, etc. supports my body in restoring health. No wonder you are my go-to person for all internal health concerns.

“I have had intestinal and stomach discomfort off and on for years.
Since following Kim’s thoughtful suggestions and processes over the last few months,I can honestly say, I have never felt better. Kim is a attentive and perceptive listener, and I always feel comfortable when we meet. I leave her office feeling upbeat and just plain good!”
Visiting Kim Barzilay really made a difference for me. I’ve been battling Lyme Disease for many years now and had reached a plateau in my healing. Kim was able to use the Vega Testing to bring my attention to some issues I hadn’t considered, and as a result, I have now reached a new level in my healing process. Andrew Bowman
Kim, you are a sweetheart of a human, an expert at vega testing, and ever so wonderful to share your passion of good health to others like me! Sincere thanks, the Ener-C gave me more energy after just 3 days! Happy Autumn! Olivia
I have been seeking advice from Kim for some time now. She is very straightforward lady and has me headed in the right direction to achieve my own personal health goals. I can contact her and she never fails to respond in a calm and extremely caring fashion. There is no question in my mind that she has my best interests at heart and I am very grateful for all her help. Yours Kay Uzzell, Campbell River, BC
It was a Monday morning when I had booked to see my friend
Kim, who practices Psych-k. She told me she had discovered a new modality
called Holoenergetics, I was eager to experience it. I had no idea what
to expect, and I went with an open mind, to learn. I really wanted to
work on openning up any blocks that maybe appeared concerning my art,
which I love to do, and wanted to do better. I had no idea what would
come up. Experiences from my past that I thought I had dealt with came up, and
apparently I hadn't fully dealt with them. I have practiced meditation for years, but there are
always different ways of accessing our consciousness, and this was
different. It was actually very beautiful, Kim gave me homework to
practice which I have been doing. My peers tell me my art has changed immensely!
I am always excited about new ways of
accessing our consciousness to help us to be the best that we can be and
help clear blocks that occur throughout our lives for various reasons. I
think Holoenergetics is a great healing tool and lets MAGIC happen. Sue, Courtenay, BC
My mom turned me on to Psych-K with after I witnessed her amazing transformations and I went to Kim at a particularly low time in my life. Understanding that to live in these physical bodies means that we are particularly sensitive to energy in all its forms. Identifying the thought patterns we have conditioned ourselves to believe, and what we perceive our reality to be, is exactly where Psych-K and your healing begin. Kim not only has the learned knowledge of Psych-K but she also intuitively understands exactly what it is her client needs to heal. For me the effect was instant but the same thought patterns try and creep back in over time. When they do, I am reminded of the magic Kim and I did and where I want my experience to be, not where my brain / old tapes want it to be. When you are ready and open, Psych-K and Kim are definitely the real deal. With much love ~ Genevieve, Victoria, BC
I was so scattered in how I felt in a lot of aspects of my life! After one
appointment, I was stronger! My head, heart and gut matched after a
balancing from Kim......I feel clearer and more secure in my feelings. It's
the best inner regrouping a person can have! Absolute clarity! I had someone
say to me, Kim is an angel given to us from heaven, and I think my friend
just might be right! I would highly, highly recommend her to anyone needing
some personal direction or health needs! Nicole
