I started getting chiropractic care almost eighteen months ago and have not looked back since!!!
My name is Catherine Roche and I came across Life and Balance Centre at a very stressful time in my life.  I was running a business (still in its infancy) ,raising a toddler and recently broken-up with my partner and oh yes I had hurt my lower back (disc trouble).

Dr.Tammy had said she could look at what was going on with my nervous system and what a shocker it was near exhaustion!! I was feeling very low due to everything that was going on in my life and the pain I was experiencing. I was taking painkillers for the pain. While my back was giving a lot of pain it also put a halt to one of my gra's of life which is skiing- I have been an instructor for over 15 years and skiing since I was three a couple of times a week so that was a huge void to me.

My response to the treatment was very quick and people were commenting on firstly my posture, i was standing up straight,then those close to me had noticed a difference in my state of mind - I was told I got my 'spark' back and that's how I felt. The joy in being able to do things I had before taken for granted. I could take my little girl for a walk or play with her after a hard day's work instead of lying on the hard floor for half the night for fear of not being able to work the next day and I was able to ski again. These were things I had taken for granted before and I was now really seeing things in a different light.
I bring my little girl to get adjusted too! From her first visit there were amazing changes with her. She stopped almost immediately falling all the time and went from being timid on her feet to sturdy and strong and seldom if ever now picks up any colds etc either in creche or from family!

OK maybe there is a down side to this - no excuse for not doing house work - but I can live with that!!

I go for weekly adjustments now not because I need it for pain relief but rather for the feel good factor.
Thank you!!!
