“I started seeing Kerry at Britannia Bodyworks after starting my Nucca treatment. I had been diagnosed with a neurological disease that affected my muscles. I had a new baby that I couldn’t care for, I couldn’t drive and the pain was extreme. I felt hopeless about my ability to heal. I was told botox or brain surgery were my only options.
 
What Kerry did for my mind, body and spirit is beyond words and definitely beyond a ‘massage.’ He was able to listen to my body and help it heal. He also helped me to connect my mind to my body. He made sense of what was happening with my muscles. Each visit, I got slightly better; it was small improvements at first, and he told me ‘one day you won’t remember the pain and you won’t remember what this was like.’ I went weekly for months, then I went monthly, now I go only as needed to maintain.
 
Every treatment he would encourage me that this is not forever and bodies do know how to heal. He didn’t promise me results but I felt hope working with him, and anyone going through a crisis knows that hope, sometimes is the only thing that matters.
 
My body completely healed, my work with Kerry was a critical part of this. I have no pain, and I have full movement. I take care of my children, I work part time, I skate, I run and even went camping this year! He was right I don’t really remember how bad it was or the pain. I do remember our conversations and the feeling of moving towards health.
 
Thank you Kerry”

“With persistence Kerry was able to get everything loosened up again in my back and leg to the point I was once again able to be mobile and I had strength in my ankle so I didn’t fall.”

 

“I was very lucky to have found Geoff Dakin, following years of pain and a hip surgery to repair a labral tear due to a dance injury.”

 

“Two years ago I broke my back and had to undergo surgery to repair the damage. Little did I know that the pain was just beginning. I tried physiotherapy, acupuncture, medications and massage but nothing seemed to relieve me of the intense lower back pain I was having. Than I discovered SomaYoga taught by Alana Burton. Within one session I already could feel a difference throughout my body and a reduction in pain.

The more I went, the less and less pain I began to have. After only 6 months of practicing SomaYoga, I am almost 100% pain free and on the days where my back does begin to feel sore I am equipped with the tools that allow me to feel better. The movements are simple and easy to remember yet they make such an incredible impact on your body. I am so happy that I discovered SomaYoga because it has allowed me to return to all the activities I love, pain free. I would highly recommend it to anyone with any kind of pain. It is truly a miracle and I am forever grateful.”

“This program is fun and has potential to change your life. The process involves a phone call once a week, where the coach will ask a series of questions to unlock the subconscious mind and shed light on important aspects of life that may not normally be addressed. Having a coach to assist this process and listen to your needs is highly valuable. Without knowing it directly, throughout the 10 weeks, your life will change. Your boundaries, intentions and values will become clear and situations that no longer fit will fall away as you become more aligned to your core. Being in alignment with your self makes you feel centred and in control, and therefore it makes life easier and happier when you know where you stand. If to “know thyself” is important to you, than the Core Alignment program is a step in the right direction.

As a facilitator, Lynne Hilderman has guided me through the process with grace and understanding. She allows me to speak and raises important questions that help further my personal development. Her experience, patience and perspectives have supported my growth and exploration of self. I’m grateful for her time and knowledge, I believe she is a real natural when it comes to helping people feel empowered and safe for self exploration. Lynne, from the depth of my soul, thank you very much!”

“I was challenged with all the obstacles around relationship, business and my family.
I was dealing with a controlling mother, teenagers going through life changes such as school troubles and work problem. I was able to think in a completely different way so that I was able to respond rather than coming from reactions which would have created more drama and trauma. When I did come from reaction it lasted a short time as I was able to see more clearly and move beyond the reaction into action and solution. Others may not have changed in what they did, but I was able to make decisions that benefited me and was able to say what was true for me in a way that was able to be received rather than fighting. With my teenage son reacting to me in a disrespectful manner, I have been able to stand my ground and be much more reasonable than I would have in the past. I also have been able to say exactly what I need to say in new relationship without attachment to the outcome. The only outcome I am interested in is win/win from my point of view. I am open to all the possibilities.
 
The manner in which Lynn asked the questions and guided me was brilliant. She is insightful, intuitive and truly assisted me. The questions were framed in such a way that at times it seemed my brain and mind were jumbled. I was confused at times and Lynne brilliantly guided me to a place where I felt the confusion lift and clarity take its place.

Presently, I have a list of people, possibilities and ideas of which is part of my strategy to move forward in business and a new possibilities of how I might wish to live my life, create my relationship and build my business. The contribution of looking at different angles and awareness has given me new direction and focus.”

“I came to Diane after receiving a referral from a vascular surgeon. For 5 years I experienced chronic pain and fatigue in my arms and hands. It impacted all aspects of my life. Completing simple daily chores were nearly impossible to do and I had to give up activities that I loved.

I was extremely hesitant to start my sessions with Diane as I had already spent thousands of dollars on other physiotherapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, and osteopaths without getting relief of symptoms.

Deciding to start the program with Diane was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I would recommend her to anyone! My only regret is not finding out about her years before!!”

“I just wanted to express my gratefulness for the massage therapy session I had today with “Jennifer”. I would like to thank her so much for taking the time to find the deep-rooted pain in my back. She diagnosed the amount of tension so professionally and with her treatment method my lower back has not felt this much relief since 4 years ago; not even with all the physiotherapy sessions I have received occasionally. I am so grateful to Britannia Bodywork & Wellness center for offering such knowledgably, skillful staff and lucky that I came across your website and booked an appointment with Jennifer. I would also appreciate if you could book me for another 9 sessions with her according to a treatment plan she may recommend.

Thank you so much Jen!”

“For eleven years I endured muscle and nerve pain, a vast array of therapies and medications, and was told by many that this was now my life. That’s how I spent my 40s. Now, three years after meeting Geoff Dakin, I am completely pain-free and strength has returned to my left leg. This past summer has been the most amazing in many years and I anticipate the next will be even better. The Alignment First Protocol is more than just a treatment, it has become a lifestyle for my husband and I. At age 59 not only is he touching his toes for the first time since he was a teenager, but his doctor says he’s taller than before!”

Hi Jennifer,
I just wanted to say Thank You for your efforts yesterday. I feel ten years younger and I kicked butt at tennis last night!
In my humble opinion -What you do for a living is greatly under-appreciated! Good work.
Take care,

Roger
