My hands, back and shoulders have hurt for years. After 2 visits with Sandra, range of motion is incredible, soreness is practically 0, strength has returned and my quality of life is wonderful. I am looking forward to my next visit. Sandra is fun to be around personally and a dedicated professional!
Since I began MOT with Leslie I have felt significant improvement with my sciatic pain and cannot remember the last time I had a headache which is a huge win for me. I am always impressed on results obtained with such a gentle approach. Coupling the MOT with massage leaves mind and body feeling completely relaxed.
Dr. Halabi is very knowable in treated my knee pain. l can now walk without so much pain. Thank you
I cannot find the proper words to explain how Leslie has helped me & truly changed my life! Her intuition is spot on, she truly is a natural, gifted healer. I am so very grateful that I met her ♥
Great massage - very relaxing!
I didn't know what to expect from this appointment, but definitely found it beneficial. Also, Tavis was very professional.
I appreciated the massage from Sandra. She is very thorough and asks for feedback throughout. Highly recommended!
Sandra is an excellent therapist and a pleasure to chat with. If you like deep tissue massages I recommend her highly!
An excellent, therapeutic, Massage. Sandra is very knowledgeable about the body and what you need to be doing to get out of discomfort and pain. I will definitely be back.
Very accommodating and relaxing.
First time at a osteopathic appointment. Tavis was very helpful in finding my problem areas and adjusting them.
Amazing therapists and a wonderful place
Sandra is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. Total professional and a super nice person too. Highly recommended
First visit and impressed with the in-depth assessment, targeting issues and massage. I could feel the difference immediately. Highly recommend. Lesley is professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and good listener. Manual osteopathic therapy which is a holistic whole body approach that not only concentrate on the problem area, but uses manual techniques to balance all the body systems, and to provide overall good health and wellbeing.
Such a welcoming environment professional and caring staff I would recommend this place to anyone
sara is excellent and understand sports injuries and great at her craft
Tavis is an excellent massage therapist and also very skilled at MOT. I was very pleased with his work on my shoulder as it helped to relive the pain and stiffness. I would definitely recommend Tavis to anyone who needs a massage or MOT.
I had a superb massage from Tavis following my manual osteopathic session. The myofacial massage helped to fully relax my body and helped in clearing some of the tenseness in my muscles and allowed me to continue with my strength workouts with no downtime. Tavis is very professional and easy to talk to and has done a wonderful job every time I meet with him.
Tavis is an excellent Therapist and has enabled me to continue with my workouts by balancing any issues found during my appointments and putting my body back into proper alignment. I would definitely recommend him for both Manual osteopathic work as well as for massage.
Fantastic session. Tavis does a great job.
Dealt with a shoulder injury and it is now stronger and back to normal. Also worked though issues with my ankle that are the result of rehabbing a fracture from a year ago. Excellent approach to gaining strength and flexibility back in that ankle.
Very impressed by the flexibility and range of motion I now have. Each visit we achieve more and more.
Very good progress in releasing stressed areas
Very Professional. Made a big difference in my range of motion
Lesley is a thoughtful and serious student of MOT and she demonstrates an excellent understanding of it. Her assessment and then therapy to correct problems left me energized and feeling much better. Follow-up sessions have led to further improvement in long-standing problems. I'm looking forward to continuing the work! Thank you Lesley.
Excellent technique giving long-lasting results without any pain. How wonderful! Thank you Sandra.
Is my first time going to body balance and I found Kathleen therapist to be just awesome. She’s very encouraging and she knows her job very well. I would definitely recommend body balance to anyone and everyone
I had a 90 minute massage with Kat today. She is absolutely fantastic. Lots of deep tissue work, but not so much that I felt sore afterwards. I will definitely be rebooking.
I would follow Leslie Wiggins to the ends of the earth! She has dramatically changed my day to day life. Issues that plagued me for years are being resolved and more. She is so very intuitive and I trust her 100% to always do what is right for me. The clinic is clean friendly and clearly has a high standard. I'm so blessed ♥
punctual, professional, very knowledgeable. i feel that with a few treatments my condition will improve greatly.
Very thorough. Understanding and compassionate always leave feeling very relaxed and comfortable.
I want to send a huge thank you and commendation to Denise. I have had a problem in my shoulder/back for almost two years now. I have visited multiple physiotherapists and massage therapists in different cities. They have all helped relieve the pain and mitigate the issue to some extent, but after I saw Denise I completely feel like a brand new person. She addressed the issues and diagnosed them so quickly. She knew exactly where to press and fix my problems. She was so welcoming, friendly, and I felt comfortable around her right away. Thank you so much Denise. You really helped my life. You are the best!
I have been seeing Serina at Body Balance Therapy for a number of years, and I would highly recommend both her, and Body Balance. I find Serina's massages extremely effective at releasing areas of tension and helping to relieve pain and her suggestions and advice on how to help myself between appointments invaluable.
Great deep tissue massage.
Excellent! Thorough and relaxing.
It was a lovely deep tissue massage
Two weeks after a heart attack I went for a massage. Serena was very concerned about my well being during the massage. I had approval from my doctor so everything went as planned. I’ve had massages a few years ago at other places but have been coming her for years. Staff is very friendly, more like family than someone you visit for a treatment 3-4 times a year. Serena is a exceptional therapist who is genuinely concerned about your well being. Serena gets 6 stars out of 5. Body balance gets 5/5. Recommend this place to everyone.
I had my first massage therapy session with Sandra in 1997. Since then, I have been to more than a couple dozen therapists and I have to say, no one is as qualified, skilled or effective as Sandra. Her knowledge and guidance have helped me overcome several chronic issues with lower back pain, vehicle injury, posture correction. Just as important, Sandra's ability to put clients at ease and accommodate for their specific health issues and needs goes deep. She is a warm, caring, sensitive and funny human being.
Dr. Sahar was excellent and very thorough. This was my first time to try acupuncture. She explained everything to me in a very simple way. I was quite nervous of the needles, but she was very very gentle and I finished the session feeling much more relaxed. Will definitely be coming back.
Best acupuncture session I’ve had! She knows exactly what she’s doing and listens to my needs!
Dr. Halabi is amazing! She is so knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around! Highly recommend her for any acupuncture needs!
Great as usual
Christian did a great job of loosening my rock hard leg muscles without causing any next day grief. Sensitive to his pressure - checked-in frequently to confirm it was ok and demonstrated excellent knowledge of muscle anatomy.
I forgot to rate Naomi on the testimonial written regarding the Dec 12th appointment so have done so here, thanks
I have been seeing Naomi Holmstrom at Body Balance Therapy for deep tissue massage to treat my chronic pain caused by Fibromyalgia for several years now. I mostly suffer from migrain headaches and joint pain in my neck and shoulders. Naomi always asks me what my worst areas are before she begins the massage to ensure she is concentrating on the right areas. I always require extra attention to my head, neck and shoulders however I also like to have a complete body massage therefore appointments are always 90 minutes in length. The company I work for covers up to 80% of the cost so I go every 3 weeks. Naomi is professional, personal, experienced and compassionate and I always feel a lot better after the massage. Naomi’s deep tissue massage therapy works very well and usually lasts for up to 1 week by reducing muscle tension & pain. I have lived with this condition for 25 years now and have encountered many massage therapists and I consider Naomi one of the best ones.
Sarah is amazing!
Naomi is great! She focussed on the areas I was experiencing issues and also knew where else would be helpful for general relief of problem areas when pregnant. She made sure, at 32 weeks, I was comfortable and could relax.
Serina is passionate about what she does and her knowledge and care she gives to the client doesn't go unnoticed. She wants to know what's happening with your body, will work to get you back on the right track and offer helpful suggestions in between sessions to strengthen you. Easy going with a belief in what she knows and how she works with the client compliment her skill-set and is evident in how booked up she is. I always look forward to my appointments which makes me want to book others. Don't wait like I do, book now!
I have been going to Serina for over a year. She is an incredible massage therapist and I would highly recommend anyone to go to her. She helped me immensely after my car accident and continues to do so. Thank you, Serina!
When I walked in, my jaw was sore and stiff. By the time i left, I almost felt like my old self again. I could move my jaw in ways I hadn't been able to for quite some time. This was my fourth session with Serina and she is always kind, calming and provides great tips for in between sessions.
Steam shower is a great asset to have and fantastic way to get warmed up for a massage.
I had a great massage. Sore spots I did not know I had were worked on. The staff are friendly and the location is ideal.
Sara was amazing, as always. She has helped me so much over the years!
This massage was very therapeutic! I've been receiving regular massage for the past year and haven't felt such relief and openness through my posterior side. I will be recommending Serina to my friends and family!
Serina is always wonderfully comforting to talk to. She always puts me at ease, communicates clearly about my needs, and I always leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Sara is awesome.. the end point made.
This was an unbelievable massage, it was deep and hit all the troubled spots I had.
I'd describe my appointment as...sensational! 47 years old and my first massage ever. Sandra made my experience so that I've already booked my next appointment:) highly recommend her and excited to try other RMT's at Body Balance !!
I'd describe my appointment as...exhausted joy!
I'd describe my appointment as...magical! Sara targeted the areas that needed work, listened to me and what I felt I needed help with and gave me a ton of useful tips for at home. Excellent massage from a very competent, kind and talented masseuse. Thanks Sara!
I'd describe my appointment as... satisfying and effective. Sandra Strangman is a sympathetic, helpful and motivating professional. I always feel good after leaving her clinic -- mentally and physically. Sandra is incredibly knowledgeable and the perfect person to treat my sports-related injuries.
I'd describe my appointment as...amazing!! Talented!!
I'd describe my appointment as entertainingly painful. No, I'm not a masochist, but Sandra's personable patter kept me distracted while she very thoroughly dealt with a pain issue. The whole atmosphere at Body balance is comfortably professional, and I will return.
I'd describe my appointment as... one of the most knowledgeable RMTs I've met and very professional office. My first visit was fantastic and I will definitely be back thanks to Sandra.
My daughter had her first ever acupuncture appointment, and Dr. Halabi was considerate, kind, and patient with her. She explained the process thoroughly and put my daughter at ease. She was attentive and sweet, and made my daughter's first experience an extremely positive one. Dr. Halabi was amazing, and I would recommend her to anyone.
I'd describe my appointment as...Dr. Halabi is very professional and knowledgable. I never hesitate to ask any question and feel very comfortable while in her care.
I'd describe my appointment as...an excellent benefit to the healing of my heel spur and soft tissue damage to my foot. Since starting these treatments I am able to put more pressure on my heel for longer periods of time. Sandra is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to treating injuries. Body balance is a fantastic clinic full of great people.
I'd describe my appointment as a great experience. She was able to address the issues I was having with my body. The atmosphere is always great along with the professional attitude that Sara always has.
I have had several cold laser therapy sessions on my shoulder, knee & forearm. Each is a different kind of injury & the cold laser works for pain relief & in the case of my shoulder, which was a 3rd degree separation of the AC joint, I believe it healed me quicker & I was able to finish my physio therapy sooner.
I have had several appointments with Sandra for massage. It is a very deep massage and she if very thorough. I have a number of ailments & she is able to address each of them. Each appointment she asks what problem areas I would like her to work on in addition to the normal full body massage. She will also adjust the depth & pressure if you are uncomfortable or unable to take her normal pressure. She continues to ask throughout the massage. You feel tired but good after the massage. I would highly recommend her for a massage.
I'd describe my appointment as...Excellent because Sandra always first finds out how my knee replacement is doing and how I am feeling. She takes care to discuss all aspects of the treatment, in this case I had Cold laser Therapy, and how it will affect the knee and the healing process. Sandra always give me information on new ways to treat and improve my injury. I recommend Sandra to all my friends and family for massage and cold laser treatments..
I'd describe my appointment as fabulous. I asked for, and got, therapeutic deep tissue massage. Sandra is very knowledgeable and gives one a running commentary on what she is doing to what muscle, joint or ligament, and how they work with each other. Although I don't understand it all, some of it gets through to my brain! She is strong and can really put one through the wringer, but is careful to ask for feedback on whether one can take that much pressure or wants more. I am happy to have found someone who will do what is required to get the job done!
It was wonderful. I had a problem with my shoulder and lower back and Sandra did the magic. Sandra knows what to do to make your body tension go away. Looking forward to see her again.
I'd describe my appointment as...I had hurt my back and was experiencing a lot of discomfot limiting my movement. Serina was extremely helpful and the massage was a true gift on such a frustrating day for me. I will be back on Friday and am trongly considering seegin Serina every 6 weeks thereafter as well as referring my husband and friends to her.
I'd describe my appointment as a great therapy session both physically and mentally. Serina Cote begins each session with a conversation with me to ask how am I doing and how is my body doing. She asks about any injuries; she asks how I was after my last appointment; she asks if I have specific areas that need attention; she asks about the level of pressure I would like/need. She also has good knowledge of physical form; meaning she is able to offer advice/opinions on proper form when working out. To me that is an important element and is indicitive of her knowing the human body overall. I have had many many massages from many differnt massage therapist so I speak from experience when I say that Serina is an excellent massage therapist. She works your body like a professional. She is discreet and attentive. She is theraputic in that she is an excellent sounding board to me. I always leave feeling refeshed physcially and mentally.
another wonderful massage by Sandra!
I'd describe my appointment as... Very enjoy, Myriam was very nice and great at what she does! Thank you so much! I will most definitely be back!
I'd describe my appointment as...wonderful!! I've never had a relaxation massage before and this one lived up to all my expectations. I will definately be back!
I'd describe my appointment as very relaxing, professional and fabulous!...The room was comfortable and so was the conversation. I feel great today and am not sore anywhere.
I'd describe my appointment as...fantastic! Naomi is kind, caring, knowledgeable, and gives an awesome massage! My body felt so good after my treatment! Thank you for the great service, Naomi! :)
I'd describe my appointment as... OUTSTANDING!! Serina took care of my aches and pains and I had a great massage. Looking forward to the next one already, even though I won't need it for awhile given how good I feel now. James
I'd describe my appointment as amazing! Sandra never disappoints.
I'd describe my appointment as...exactly what I needed. I have been coming to Body Balance Theraputic Massage for about 5 years now and have never had a negative experience. Sara is absolutely amazing! She is very professional and makes you feel comfortable at all times. Sara always listens to my concerns and focuses on what is bothering me. I always feel like a million bucks when I leave after my massage. I would recommend Sara to anyone who wants one of the best massages of their life!
I'd describe my appointment as...therapeutic! Serina has a great sense of what pressure to use when, and really listens.
I'd describe my appointment as...the best deep tissue massage I've ever had! At other massage places I always left disappointed with the session. Although I'd tell them deep tissue, the pressure was barely enough to feel. Sandra gave me the pressure I needed, comic relief, and valuable take home advice. I will be back (many times) and will be sending my husband as well! Thanks again!
Sara Szabo is an excellent massage therapist, she is excellent in her craft, no matter if you are going for relaxation or deep tissue Or if going for physio. Would highly recommend. 10/10
Best massage I've ever had! Sandra, not only is concerned about your past/current health, but she makes suggestions in order to ensure you have a healthy future. She is all about preventative maintenance. Her love of an active lifestyle is contagious.
I'd describe my appointment as...Awesomesauce I needed a deep massage and Sara took me to the limit and back. I was twisted up and tight with knots all over the place. By the end of the massage I was exhausted but my pain was relieved. If you need is deep massage get Sara. She rocks. She does relaxing stuff too and is good at it. But that's for pansies.
I'd describe my appointment as...very relaxing. Best ever.. Will recommend Body Balance to friends
I'd describe my appointment as very beneficial. I was involved in a rear end car accident. The cold laser treatment and massage helped with the pain and the healing process.
I'd describe my appointment as...Excellent. Sara knew exactly what needed to be done to remedy my issues. I felt an immediate improvement.
I'd describe my appointment as always the best deep tissue massage a person could get. Sandra along with the other therapists at Body Balance provide the very best in quality professional therapeutic massage services anywhere I have ever found.
I'd describe my appointment as excellent. Sara is very professional and friendly. She knows exactly what to do to make sure that I leave every appointment more relaxed, but still getting things done.
I'd describe my appointment as...exceptional quality and value.
I'd describe my appointment as...incredibly healing and rejuvenating. I lied down on Sandra's massage table feeling sad, miserable and in pain. I tried to resist her infectious joy and energy for the first 5 minutes of the massage to no avail. Her genuine concern for my health and her buoyant personality broke down much of the walls, both physical and emotional, that I had been trying to maintain for some time. She instantly found a crick in my back that had been bothering for me for months, even though no one else I'd tried to coerce into massaging it had noticed anything there. Her technique is incredibly refined...she had all these little ways of touching me that seemed to guide everything back into alignment. Today I went in for a massage with Meghan (another therapeutic genius who works at Body Balance) and I overheard something that completely touched me. Sandra does not take tips! I think she must view her work as fulfilling and must feel that making people feel better is a reward in itself. I think that's pretty selfless and indicative of a true healer. (Not that good massage therapists don't deserve tips...they do!) Sandra has helped me start the journey out of a bit of a depression by putting me back in touch with my body. I really appreciate what she and her staff member Meghan do. Highly recommended!!! And thank you Sandra.
I'd describe my appointment as...just what I needed. The entire experience was perfect. Sara was extremely professional and yet personable. I have had several massages in the past before and most have been great, but this one was different. I am very pregnant and I haven't had a massage being pregnant, well this it is what every pregnant woman needs. You will feel incredibly relaxed, and energized after. I was under the weather a few days prior to this massage and had no energy, after this massage, every bit of energy came back, I actually felt like a new person. Sara used the perfect amount of pressure and new what to work on. I am counting the days till my next visit. BTW, the pillow that is available for us pregnant woman to lie down on, is a God send, after months of lying on my side, I was finally able to lie on my stomach, it was seriously the best part of the massage.
It is the beez kneez. Great service over an above any other provider!
I'd describe my appointment as integrated, professional and comfortable. Sandra is an expert in her field and adjusts her technique/pressure according to the individuals need. She provides a safe environment to receive a healing, therapeutic treatment.
I went to Naomi throughout my pregnancy and she was a life saver!! She is so knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Naomi always finds those trouble spots and I always leave feeling light and relaxed.
I'd describe my appointment as...absolutely amazing! Naomi has the gift of sensing where your body needs the most attention! I came away feeling like a new person!
I'd describe my appointment as... very pleased as always.
I'd describe my appointment as... very satisfied customer. Naomi is very thorough.
Dr. Halabi was extremely professional and I felt completely at ease. Her attention to explaining the procedure left me with no worries about why I chose her to perform acupuncture on me. I look forward to seeing her again.
I'd describe my appointment as... Always a wonderful experience as Dr. Halabi is so warm and welcoming. When I have an appointment with her, she always asks how I am feeling and takes the initiative to get to know me not just as a patient, but as a person. Dr. Halabi's acupuncture experience and knowledge is precise and exceptional. I am blessed that I have her looking after me! Sincerely, Michelle Stolk
I'd describe my appointment as...Wonderful. I was comfortable, Sandra was great at checking in with me, and I knew I was going to feel much better afterwards.
I never enjoyed having a needle poked into my skin before, so I had an aversion to even considering acupuncture. Then one day, my pain was so bad from a sports injury, that I finally decided to take the plunge thinking that the pain from needles couldn't be as bad as the pain I was experiencing. I chose Dr. Halabi because I had heard from many sources that she was the best. She has an incredibly gentle bedside manner, that immediately put me at ease. The needles seemed to be an extension of that gentle manner, and to my surprise, the process was not painful. Dr. Halabi is obviously very knowledgable in this fine art. She soothingly explained both the eastern and western theories of acupuncture -- maybe it was her way of distracting me from the needles poking into my skin, but whatever it was, it worked and I soon felt relief from my pain. I'm now a convert and have gone to see Dr. Halabi when physio/chiro just don't quite hit the mark. I highly recommend her!
I've tried the rest, happily I've now found the best! I think people would describe me as being thick - well muscular. Other massages felt like they only scratched the surface. So when I heard that Sandra's massages would leave you crying, I was anxious to give it a try. I was not disappointed. Though I did not cry ( outwardly) I think I cried uncle a few times even if under my breath. So if you have big muscle groups and you need deep relief, you need to see Sandra. I have never gone anywhere else since finding Sandra. Sandra is also very knowlegable in high performance sports such as bikram yoga and marathon running. She provided me with invaluable advice when I tackled by first ever 1/2 marathon. She also has expert advice on how to strengthen the body (knees and ankles for example)to prevent injuries from occurring in the first place. Whether preparing for a major athletic event, recovering from one, or general maintenance, Sandra will give you exactly what you need.
Amazing Massage Therapist! Very attentive to areas of importance and a very comfortable atmosphere every time I go!
