  • I went to equilibrium as a recommendation by a friend. This was an amazing experience! I had my first massage with Brenly. This was amazing! She targeted all the spots that were tight and was very careful on the tender muscles. I left without paying a dime because they direct billed my insurance provider! This experience was so awesome I decided to try Acupuncture as well. I found a time slot super easily on their appointment scheduler online. I went in for my second appointment with equilibrium and my very first ever acupuncture treatment. Kat was amazing and she explained what she was doing and why. She asked a lot of questions and targeted areas that were important tome. She even took away a lot of the pain in my neck from working at a desk all day. I decided that I absolutely love coming to Equilibrium! Yesterday I noticed they also have a chiropractor!!!!! So I made an appointment to see Dr. Marc! BONUS POINTS because he was available that afternoon! I left there feeling like a whole new human! I am the happiest of all customers. Yesterday I went into the scheduler and booked up all the appointments my benefits would allow. THANK YOU EQUILIBRIUM and THANK YOU COURTNEY L. for the referral!!! BEst decision ever!

  • Had a massage session with Colleen today and my body instantly feels way better from the fatigue I got from work. I required more than medium strength and she was able to provide the right amount of pressure on the right area! Highly recommend her!

  • I’ve had many great experiences here with Megan- she is wonderful and does a great job. The rooms are nice (I love that the massage tables are heated!) and cozy. It is easy to book online and rebook when necessary. I’ve recommended this place to my partner and 2 colleagues, all of whom have come and loved their experience too.

  • I can’t say enough about these wonderful, skilled, intentional people! Dr. Bijman worked with me through my work-related incident and was the first chiropractor that actually spent more than 45 min taking detailed notes, asking great questions, giving me researched opinions and resources. He was amazing with his care, putting a heat pack on my back to losses my muscles before giving me treatment. He also worked with me in the gym to give me specific exercises but not too many, just enough to target my area of need. He also wrote extra reports to support my WCB claim. I highly recommend him and I do so after having several different chiropractors in Victoria. And I would be silly not to take a moment to recognize the amazing office staff. The ladies at the front are the kind hearted captains of this finely tuned ship. They are authentic to talk with, and amazing with paperwork, follow up emails, and phone calls. The place wouldn’t run the same without them. (And they always made sure the place was looking like a rest haven and the Silk Road tea was ready for you when you got there!) Amazing!

  • The staff here are incredible and the atmosphere is great. My recovery from a car accident went really well in their care.

  • This place is wonderful. So peaceful and relaxing. I had the best massage today and feel amazing! I will definitely be going back very soon. I have been to their Yates Street location in the past and it was also 5 stars for sure! I highly recommend visiting them to fix whatever ails you. Travis rocks!

  • Out of the several chiropractors I’ve seen, Dr. Bijman is definitely the best. He is very thorough in his approach and is very much a people person/easy to talk to. He truly cares about each individual and what’s going on in their lives – he understands all realms of health, not just in the physical sense. Additionally, I used to have sharp pain in my neck and shoulders after sitting for long hours at my desk job – now I’m pain-free! The treatment plan is working and I’m so grateful. I highly recommend him 🙂

    Janine J.

  • Well decorated office with personable and helpful staff. Always has a pot of brewed tea for customers to enjoy, as well as some dark chocolates on the desk. Comfortable seating in the waiting room and some of the most delightful massage tables I’ve come across. If you need heated everything, they have it. The table articulation adds a greater degree of comfort. 10/10 will go again.

  • Dr. Marc is amazing. He’s one of the best chiropractors in the area. Kind, patient and knowledgable. He took the time to listen to me and find the root of my problem. I have never felt better! Highly recommended.

    Parisa R.

  • Dr. Bijman is an amazing chiropractor! He is very professional and has a wealth of knowledge to share. His approach is very thorough – great for anyone looking to try chiropractic for the first time or seeking a second opinion/more individualized approach. He is also very personable and genuinely cares about his patients. Highly recommended!

  • Had an amazing experience at Equilibrium today! Great atmosphere and customer service from start to finish. I can’t recommend Travis Davison highly enough. He was awesome! Really listened to my issues and made sure to focus on the areas I needed work on. Already booked my return visit. Well done Travis!!

    Jonathan M.

  • Dr. Marc is an outstanding Chiropractor. He is very knowledgeable and passionate. He understands what his patients need and goes above and beyond to help them the best way he can. He can also give a good crack! Highly recommended

    Hejran O.

  • Dr. Marc is a very kind-hearted and passionate individual. He spends a lot of time with you and asks about your hobbies and interests which play a role in his treatments. I found this very interesting because most doctors do not create specific treatment plans based on different lifestyles. I can safely say I would trust him to treat my family because of this and his comfortable adjustments. Highly recommended!

  • I just wanted to pass on a HUGE thank you to the girls who were working yesterday. I called in at about 930am for a 945am appointment I had booked a week or so earlier to let them know I was still coming but was going to be about 20 minutes late. I’d had a rotten morning, a straw that broke the camel’s back kind of thing and was in tears and failing miserably at holding it together while on the phone. When I got there, the young woman (I’m so sorry, I don’t know her name) greeted me, still teary, and asked if I still wanted to have the treatment. I did, and so rather than me losing out on 20 minutes of my 90 minute massage she adjusted it to a 60 minute massage. I got in to see Chloe who offered me a hug and I pretty much dissolved in her arms. The massage was great, so very much needed, and when I finished I went back out to the desk. Chloe was there with a chocolate quinoa muffin and another hug for me, and the woman at the desk processed my gift card and gave me back a credit on the card to put towards my next treatment.I am not someone who is comfortable crying anywhere but alone in the shower, but these two young women were so kind, thoughtful and respectful of my space. I really appreciate that alone, never mind the above and beyond gestures of the little cupcake and letting me carry over the balance of my gc for next time. I was fully expecting to just lose out on the time that I missed while driving in. My body needed some TLC but my psyche needed it more and they totally came through.I’m in the process of sharing this story on all the facebook groups I’m on (I’m 38 weeks pregnant which didn’t help the whole controlling of my emotions thing) and praising you and your team to the moon. I’ve been coming to you for quite a while, I don’t come in regularly but when I do go for a massage it is always to Equilbrium. I will absolutely continue to do so and will make sure that I recommend you to all my friends, family, random people I meet through my work, wherever an opportunity presents itself. Thank you

  • Ashley is the first RMT I’ve ever seen who has actually listened to what’s bothering me every time and addressed it! She’s lovely and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thanks to the whole Equilibrium team!

    AA

  • Brenda was very lovely. So kind and took the proper time to get to know what areas to focus on. She is extremely knowledgable and kind.

    AS

  • I have been using Equilibrium since October 2015. The results for me personally have been outstanding. Ashley is an amazing RMT. She has allowed me to become pain-free and gain additional mobility. Kat’s acupuncture treatments have also been of great benefit. I have recommended Equilibrium to all my friends and co-workers.

  • Dear Victor, I must tell you without blushing that I love you….and so does my husband, Gus. We drove today to Tofino and the drive went so well with me having little pain and no problems. I do thank you so much for the great help you gave me yesterday or I would have never made it today. Thank you. Regards,

    Pamela

  • I had a 45min session with Gary and it was my first RMT experience. I’ve had a lot of relaxation massages and have always come away thinking something was missing with the experience. When I walked away from the session with Gary I knew it was what I always wanted. It was perfect and felt like he knew exactly where my problems were. I’ve booked a 60min session for two weeks time and will be recommending to everyone I know. Thank you very much.

  • Ali is irreplaceable. So many RMTs I try don’t come close. She is so technically precise. She’d make a great surgeon. I missed her for 8 months and I paid for it… there is a reason I booked her 3 times in 4 days. 🙂

    Corey

  • My son and I were in a MVA recently. We have been to Equilibrium for several sessions. The comfortable space, calming music and tea combined with a great model of care and very professional therapists – makes each visit a great experience and has helped me and my son begin to feel better.

    Sobhana

  • My visit to Equilibrium was great as usual. It’s apparent that this company is trying to set itself apart from other providers of massage therapy etc and it’s excellent to see. Melanie was superb and made me feel welcome and comfortable. She was professional yet friendly and I would recommend anyone to visit Equilibrium to see any of the RMTs that I have seen.

    Alex

  • Brenda – as always – u guys offer a great service and I have had a number of therapists at Equilibrium – I have never had a bad experience – yesterday I came in because of an injury – I am a little tender today but vastly improved – I am reminded that I need to get back – if I ever was REALLY in one – to a routine – an ongoing regularly scheduled appts – but your model of service – with 7 days and excellent therapists whom I know you are vetting and evaluating is just very reassuring – I have several colleagues whom I have sent in either ‘emergencies’, that is from out of town and in pain, or just local looking for a good therapist and everyone has been happy – no one has expressed anything but happiness with the service and I know all continue to use the service. This is selfish on my part I want you to continue to do well because I just want you guys to be there when I need you – I love your staff, I love the model of care and I thank you.

  • I’ve been meaning to email you for awhile and am just now, finally, getting around to it. My apologies. I want you to know what a wonderful therapist I have found in Ali Mitchell. She is both professional and personable and creates a safe and peaceful environment for each visit. And her massages are truly amazing! Thanks so much.

  • I believe that massage therapists are as much artists as musicians and painters – especially when they set the intention and open themselves to serve others at a deep level. I believe that my therapist is helping me on my own healing journey on a physical, mental and emotional level… I am often touched by the insights that come to me when in that profound relaxation state. Her warm and soothing hands remind me of the constancy of the love that underlies this reality if we can but let go of the mind chatter that so preoccupies our waking state. Again and again I am assisted to do so. I heartily endorse and recommend Equilibrium Massage to friends. It is a calm, friendly, soothing place to enjoy massage. I am forever glad that I have gifted myself regular massage there.

  • I have been nothing but pleased by all of your therapists. It makes booking a lot easier when you know that you can choose any number of them to get the care you need.

    I have found all of those who I have used to be friendly, accommodating, courteous and compassionate. I find that they must keep good notes, because they always hit the sore spots. Though, with me that’s a lot like looking for hay in a hay stack. 😉

    Please pass on my appreciation. I don’t have a favorite, everyone has been great.

    David, Trish, Gary, Kyla, and most recently Wendy; thank you. I’ll see you again soon.

  • Ali Mitchell is a gifted Registered Massage Therapist. I am lucky to have found her after experiencing serious back injuries in a car accident. Ali stands apart from other therapists I have seen for her knowledge, compassion, professionalism and her innate ability to improve and resolve pain issues.

    Gillian

  • What a great place to go if you want to leave feeling better! Ali Mitchell is truly wonderful. Not only does she have healing hands, a deep understanding about how the body works and a profound capacity for empathy, her presence is calming and lovely to be around. Thank you Ali, and Thank you, Equilibrium,for creating this place!

  • Hi Victor- the “test-run” last weekend was a success!! I didn’t have any hip-pain during or after running (approx. 8km)!! Thanks again for helpful recommendations and a great treatment!

    Gesine

  • For the longest time I went to Spas to have an RMT work on my troubled spots, while I felt good after the my treatment I never quite got to great or resolving the problem. Again good massages but sometimes light on the touch. It was a lot of money, for 75% success, after thinking about it I had an epiphany there must be a place where RMTs is a way of doing business. In talking with some professional, I was referred to Equilibrium. Ahhhhh, success! Thank you Brenda, you get to my spots and give me the relief and a resolution and for a price that takes my dollar further!! Thank you.

    Bonnie M.

  • Equilibrium Massage Therapy is a wonderful service! The therapists are kind, compassionate and highly skilled at what they do. I have been a regular client of Brenda’s since 2003, and don’t know what I would do without massage therapy. I highly recommend Equilibrium!

    Joanne D.

  • Victor, Thank you so very, very, very, very much!!! I was in pain in my neck, right shoulder, & back for 2 whole months…I feel so much better, I could cry!!! Thank You!
