First, a heartfelt ‘THANK YOU’ to all of you whom I have had the privilege of helping already this year. It’s wonderful to be back on the island and see both old and new clients. It’s a joy for me to provide a service in our community.
Many people have read my ads here on the Exchange. You’ve seen testimonials from persons from different walks of life, some of whom you may know and respect. If I have not had the pleasure of working with you then I may have worked with a friend of yours, just ask around. If I have, they can tell you more about my skills and how they can help you.
Otherwise, here’s what a few other people have had to say:
‘During two sojourns residing on the island, I received numerous treatments from Brian Pack. His skills are meticulously focussed, and he follows disturbances in body alignment through to their source, taking time and using a wide set of techniques. Being able to stay at home for the sessions, having time to rest and adjust to the changes afterwards, is not only an extra treat, it facilitates the healing and realignment process.
Along with the deep work during the massage, Brian pays extra attention to support and comfort throughout, ending the session gently, allowing for integration and completion. With Brian’s sessions, I have been able to move beyond some physical issues that interfered with my range of movement and posture, which has been very liberating. I absolutely recommend him.’ Roberta Skye
‘Brian treated me with his massage for kneecap tendonitis. My symptoms improved from the start and gradually got better and better. His knowledge of the details of the connections is profound and ranged into broader perspectives. Each session was enjoyable both physically and psychologically.’ Robert Bateman
‘Mobility is paramount in my job at Salt Spring’s wildlife rehabilitation centre. After years of abuse, my back finally gave up, and I dropped to my knees in absolute agony. I was unable to stand, walk or work for four days during our busiest season. Instead of rescuing our wild patients, I was in desperate need of rescue myself. Amazingly, after one 3-hour session with Brian, I was mobile and back at work. After two treatments, I was back to bending over and picking up wriggling, slippery seal pup patients again.’ Jackie Ballerone, Director, Island Wildlife Natural Care Centre

In developing my skills as a manual therapist, I started with six years of intensive studies in related disciplines throughout Asia before entering private practice. I now have twenty-seven years of broad-based clinical experience in pain relief, joint release and spinal restructuring as well as delaying and avoiding surgeries. I’ve developed comprehensive pre- and post-surgical protocols for faster and fuller recoveries if an operation is still required.
