I'm trying something new this month, I've brought in a product for resale. The Acuball is something that has been floating around my house for a few years. It's something that I lean on regularly for my own aches and pains. And I often find myself recommending my clients go buy one somewhere else or use a lacrosse ball to achieve a similar effect. I feel that it will be helpful to keep a few in the clinic so that clients can take home exactly what I’m showing them.
Degenerative Disc Disease
01 Nov 2018

As this process continues the size and shape of the discs change, the discs loose vertical height, therefore leading to less space between each vertebra. Though not always symptomatic, Degenerative Disc Disease(DDD) can cause acute or chronic pain.

Massage Therapists in Kitchener and Waterloo
16 Mar 2016
You might have noticed that there are over 300 Registered Massage Therapists in the Kitchener- Waterloo area. This is due mainly to the fact that one of the major massage therapy schools, the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy is located in Kitchener. This high volume of massage therapists means higher competition between massage therapists. It also means higher levels of service for you, the massage therapy client. Your massage therapist needs to be good to stand out and attract clients.
