Testimonials

Stewart, either I was cured by a miracle or you are amazing! I could not walk or straighten up for over a week. My backpain was excrutiating. I was on 3 painkillers and muscle relaxants. I was shuffling with 2 hiking poles. After just ONE treatment the pain was gone and I had NO problems walking or sitting. I am so impressed! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.” – Margriet, Salt Spring Island

After one of Stewart’s massages I always feel refreshed, rejuvenated and a bit like a Superman myself!” – Dan Jason, Salt Spring Seeds : dedicated to a safe and sustainable agriculture www.saltspringseeds.com | 250.537.5269
