Testimonials

«

I had severe lower back pain that also affected my right leg. I was unable to do my simple daily chores. I spent my days sitting or lying on the sofa. I had a very hard time just taking a few steps. The pain was sharp and intense. For some reason, I had little hope of getting better. I was referred to a chiropractor and unfortunately, it did not help me for my pain. At this point I was very discouraged, until I met Nicole Balazic, physiotherapist. She always took the time to listen to me very attentively, always with a smile and words of encouragement.

After 6 treatments with Nicole, I was 80% better. I had a hard time believing it. She also strongly recommended that I do exercises twice a day, which I do every day.

After 12 treatments, the pain is completely gone. I am back to being myself, doing my daily chores and a lot more. Nicole gave me back my life! I cannot thank her enough. She is a real professional and I would recommend her to my family and friends. Once again, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, NICOLE!
