WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Marty A. "Simply put, Dr. Charles Vantanajal has changed my life for the better. Beginning in 2015, at the age of 62, I suffered from severe leg neuropathy. I received some relief based on medication prescribed by my neurologist but it was not enough. I had problems walking and lacked overall strength in my legs. A family friend suggested Dr. Charles. It turned out to be the smartest decision I have ever made. In February 2016 I arrived at his ofice in a wheelchair and began seeing him on a bi-weekly basis. He focused on physio-related functional treatments. Within a few months I was capable of 15-minute walks and steadily increased the time, and in turn the strength and flexibility. My neurologist at the U of A Hospital was amazed at the progress I had come to make. Dr. Charles sincerely cares about his patients and their needs. He is a very personable individual. I have come to trust him enough to continue seeing him. I would highly recommend Dr. Charles to anyone in need of chiropractic treatment."
Sammy L. "Simply the best and absolutely the most thorough chiropractor I have ever met. I don't think I have met another chiropractor as helpful, patient and goes out of their way to make you feel at ease and help with your pain. I wish I lived in this city so I can see him whenever I need some help. Thank you so much for taking care of me."
James W. "Changed my life! Before finally finding Dr Charles Vantanajal at In Balance, I struggled with finding relief through other offices and avenues. In Balance helped me manage symptoms while waiting for surgery. Their expertise and treatment played an integral part to not just the relief of symptoms, but also provided the necessary information for my surgeons to correctly pinpoint the root cause and correct it. After surgery, I wouldn't trust anyone more than Dr Charles to provide advice, guidance and post operative plans to get you up and moving. My recovery period was cut nearly in half with his direction and help. Their modern approach to chiropractic and health services is a refreshing and innovative way to increase their standard of care and your way of life. You're not just a patient here, they treat you like family. Thanks Charles and Stephanie."
Heather B. "Yoga 101 - This class with Stephanie was just what I needed as a first time yoga class. I no longer feel intimidated or uncomfortable learning the practice of yoga."
Angela "I had never been in a yoga class so I didn't know what to expect but I thought a Yoga 101 class would get me started and it did. The poses built on to each other as the weeks progressed. Stephanie does a great job at helping to demonstrate and adjust your position so you really feel the stretch and at times the burn! I would recommend this class for beginners and intermediate levels."
Dena. D "I wanted to send a big kudos to Stephanie for leading such an engaging class. I've taken other classes in the past with other instructors and I never seem to even break a sweat. But in Stephanie's classes, I go home exhausted and feeling great about myself!"
Neil R. "Stephanie is a committed Yoga Instructor that makes everyone feel comfortable and welcome, while ensuring each and everyone of us is getting the most benefit from each pose as we can. She takes the time to make adjustments as required, and thoroughly explains the importance of every pose and position of our bodies. As someone new to Yoga, I would highly recommend a class by Stephanie, you won't regret it."
Jim H. "I can honestly say the professionalism from this group is outstanding. I have personally visited 3 Chiropractors and over 10 RMT's with little results in comparison. The work being done as well as the training to ensure that work is not undone has been a key in the road to recovery. Keep up the fantastic work @ In Balance see you again in a couple of weeks."
Ryan A. "Amazing facility and atmosphere! A+ every time!"
Darryl W. "I used the online booking system which was fantastic. My shoulders were a mess and I was in a great deal of discomfort as my spine was affected. 24 hours later I feel good enough to work out."
Julie B. "From the minute I walked in the door, I was made to feel relaxed and welcome. Thanks for a personal and professional geared toward relieving current pain and preventing future pain."
Marg L. "I take yoga classes with Stephanie because I find that she is dedicated to showing her students how to get the best from their workout -not everyone can be an athlete, not everyone can turn themselves into a pretzel. Stephanie allows every person to be the best they can."
Lorelei M. "The acupuncture treatments I had to treat pain relief from an old ankle injury brought about significant healing and pain relief. Massage therapy and physiotherapy helped me previously, but nothing has reduced the pain more than acupuncture. During these treatments, the Acupuncturist was concerned about lingering severe bronchial issues I had been dealing with for over two months, so she incorporated treatment for this issue as well, and my body’s recovery response was immediate. I appreciate her approach to whole health and I have recommended it to several friends."
Anna B. "Since I started yoga in September I have felt my body become stronger and my mind become clearer due to the fact of exercising and clearing my mind."
Debbie T. "I began seeing Stephanie a year ago after attending many various yoga classes over the years. Prior to that I depended each day on a wide range of painkillers to ease my back pain. She was the first teacher I had that truly looked at my issues, looking at my body alignment and determining what were my body's strength and weakness's, then developed a program for me to follow. I noticed only a few short weeks later that I no longer needed the quantities of painkillers I had taken for many years prior. She has been instrumental in my body's healing well being, showing and giving me the tools to alleviate my pain on my own."
Margaret K. "The health benefits from your classes are immeasurable. I thank you every time I back down my driveway and can turn to look over my shoulder!"
Kirsten N. "I have severe arthritis in my left hip and my doctor recommended yoga therapy to retain my current range of motion. I find yoga really helps my stay mobile."
Leanne S. "In Balance has helped bring a much-needed balance to my life. My private Vinyasa yoga classes with Stephanie are the highlight of my week. That hour allows me to focus on my physical and emotional well-being and brings a focus to my busy life! Both yoga and Charles' nutritional/exercise advice have allowed me to find a level of wellness that means I have more energy and a healthier body."
SAM B. "I was fortunate enough to connect with Charles and Stephanie at a time when my body was trying to tell me that it needed more attention than I was giving it. I had a sore back after moving and was barely able to move. During my first treatment Charles surprised me by asking me what my goal was. I was taken aback and responded with a little tongue and cheek "Not to have to come and see you again." His response back, "That is an excellent goal. How are you going to achieve it?" After working with Stephanie on rehabilitating my mobility I remain active. That was over 5 years ago. I believe Charles and Stephanie helped me get my life back and I recommend In Balance regularly to anyone with body issues."
Lori C. "I have worked out for years. After I had a back injury, I realized I was strong but had little flexibility. I started yoga to rehabilitate but fell in love with it. Yoga has made a world of difference in how I feel and look. I highly recommend private yoga sessions with Stephanie."
Fred F. "Doing yoga makes me more of a man. Yoga has enable me to touch my toes!"
Wilma F. "Couples yoga with Stephanie is our date night!"
Rick C. "I have had chronic back pain for many years and have gone to chiropractors and massage therapist for treatment. My wife recommended I try adding yoga. I did not think too highly of the idea but finally agreed to try a private session. Having private lessons was essential as it worked with my busy schedule and Stephanie was able to customize my program and ensure I was doing the moves safely and effectively. I was very surprised how quickly I experienced pain relief and the increase in my flexibility. I now do yoga on a daily basis and can't imagine how I functioned without it. I would strongly recommend Stephanie as a personal instructor. She is outstanding!"
Anne Marie H. "Yoga is my favourite way to start the day. It helps to strengthen my body, increases my flexibility and balance and helps me focus. Yoga before bed helps me to relax and clear my head, so that I can enjoy a good night's rest. I always leave my sessions with Stephanie feeling refreshed and in a positive frame of mind. I wish I'd discovered yoga years ago!!!"
Donna R. "Yoga has made me become more aware of my body. If I have pain or stiffness I want to know why I have it and how to fix it, and Stephanie, as an instructor, always has a solution to make it better."
