I have been to several chiropractors in the past and no one has ever made me feel as good as I do after a treatment from Dr. Eli. He uses a lot of different techniques, including gentle instruments and acupuncture that make a huge difference in comparison to regular manual adjustments. I do a lot of manual labour and seeing Dr.Eli keeps me able to work my busy schedule without injuring myself, truly life changing treatments!

Such a wonderful clinic! The receptionists are friendly and accommodating. The massage therapist Cheryl is so understanding and easy to talk to. I was nervous going in as I had never had a massage—she explained everything and I felt so comfortable. She is easy to talk to and always wants to help patients get back to their healthy selves. Dr. Eli is such a friendly and caring chiropractor, he uses the gentle chiropractic technique, and can also perform electric acupuncture. I look forward to seeing them every week!
