As a sufferer of severe migraines for over 18 years, I had tried pretty much everything in search of finding pain relief. From traditional medicine to massage, chiropractor, acupuncture, reike, reflexology, diets, homeopathic medicine, and bowen. Over the last few years the migraines had increased in frequency of up to three times per week with a soaring pain scale that left me in bed, feeling debilitated and unable to do anything. I was desperate to find something to relieve this pain. Just before hearing about Trevor, I was sent to another neurologist who, after reading my file, decided I needed to go on anti-seizure medication. This is something I did not want to do and I was feeling hopeless. A co-worker and her husband both recommended I go see Trevor Cragg at Balanced Body Osteopathy. Since osteopathy was something I had never tried before I was ready to give it a shot. Within the first few treatments that I had with Trevor, I felt a substantial amount of change and relief from pain. Over the course of my cranial treatments, Trevor released all of the tension in the back my neck and made gentle corrections to my cranial structure. After each treatment, I noticed major improvements and the overall intensity of my migraines drastically decreased. After 18 years of pain, I am now finally gaining my life back and am on no medication whatsoever. My only regret is that I wish I had gone to see him sooner. Thank you Trevor for caring, explaining and answering all my questions along the way. I highly recommend anyone, who experiences migraines or has had any type of head trauma, to seek cranial treatments from Trevor. It has made a world of difference for me. Thank you Trevor.

I had been suffering with pain in several areas of my body for many years and had come to the conclusion that I just needed to “live with it”. I had tried various treatment options with only minimal and temporary relief. It was then suggested to me by both an RMT and a chiropractor to explore osteopathic treatment. I did some research and called to book an appointment with a reputable osteopath in town, but was put on a long waiting list. This is when I was given Trevor Cragg’s name by my chiropractor. I contacted Trevor and he immediately responded and was able to see me within the week.
After my first appointment, I was amazed with the improved mobility in both my neck and shoulders and have experienced a diminished frequency of headaches. With further appointments, Trevor was able to locate other areas in need of correction (rotated pelvis, compressed ribs, rotator cuffs, SI joint pain). With each treatment, I have noticed improvements with my pain level and the way that my body is moving. I am now able to sit cross-legged at yoga without pain in my hips, complete some Pilates exercises that were impossible before and experience less knee pain while walking/hiking. He was even able to correct some wrist pain that I was experiencing due to the nature of my job and is exploring how some visceral work can help to improve the natural motility of my abdominal organs.
I always joke with Trevor that he is “magical” because he is able to pinpoint with great accuracy areas in my body that are causing pain, but the real truth, is that Trevor is a naturally gifted osteopath. He has a very positive energy, is extremely knowledgeable and is always willing to answer questions and explain how the body works. I feel so fortunate to have found Trevor and would highly recommend his services to anyone who is experiencing pain anywhere in their body. I feel better than I have in years! I am exercising more, I feel stronger and because I am virtually pain-free, I’m very motivated to make positive changes to improve my overall health. Thank you, Trevor – I am forever grateful for all you have done!

I have only had 2 appointments with Trevor Cragg and already have had amazing results. I had bells palsy 4 years ago and since then the nerves on the right side of my face under my eye have twitched non stop. I also didn't have a lot of feeling on that side of my face. After my first treatment the twitching has stopped and I can actually feel it when I touch the right side of my face now. I have tried massage, chiropractor and acupuncture to name a few but by far would recommend osteopathy over all of them. I would also highly recommend Trevor. He is professional, personable and extremely knowledgeable on what needs to be done in order to get the results you are looking for. Thank you Trevor :)

I was involved in a snowmobile accident 35 years ago, which resulted in a broken back. Since then, I have worked with physiotherapists, personal trainers, etc. to try to keep myself mobile. I had heard of osteopathy, but didn't really know much about it. Trevor approached me one day at the gym, and we set up an appt. From the very first treatment, he was able to re-position my pelvis, which had been out of alignment for 35 yrs. I was amazed, as I didn't think this would be possible after that many years. There is continued progress with every treatment. Trevor Cragg is very knowledgeable, professional and eager. He is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him to anybody that is considering osteopathy treatment.

Trevor helped me manage my pain caused by Crohn's Disease and then even made the pain disappear.

Trevor Cragg is a thorough, gifted osteopath. He was able to pinpoint the source of a back issue I was having, that turned out to be part of a bigger, more encompassing scenario that I was ignoring. The three sessions I needed were all intense and effective and his advice about recovery and healing from here on in has been tremendously helpful. I am impressed with how much he was able to achieve in each session and that I don't have to have months of appointments. Three were all I needed! I would not hesitate to recommend Trevor.

Trevor has been fantastic helping me overcome an acute back injury and as an unexpected bonus has helped me with an ongoing chronic issue of 15 years. I am feeling the best I have felt in years.

I went to Trevor to get help with my SI joint which he fixed and then he went on my left side and told me that my ribs were all compressed. I have had pain/discomfort/tightness/shortness of breath in that area for a really, really long time, taking my puffers, etc. but I just thought it was one of those things that I had to live with because I muck horse stalls every day. I didn’t even complain to him about it, he just found it. Now I'm finally able to take deep breaths for the first time in months and all of that discomfort and tightness is gone. I feel so much better!

I have been to other treatment providers as has my daughter (age 16) who is into her sixth year of post concussion syndrome. We have done every treatment and continue to see specialists. My daughter has had remarkable success through Trevor's treatment. He is very diligent and explains things well...one of the treatments that she hasn't given up on and doesn't complain about going to. Her headaches have gone from a regular 8 out of 10 down to a 4 most recently - has never been this low in almost 6 years. I have had tendonitis issues and herniated discs for years and I can finally lift my arm straight up-I haven't been able to do that in ten years. This treatment is definitely worth trying! Highly recommend Trevor.

I highly recommend Trevor Cragg and Balanced Body Osteopathy. I've had S.I.joint pain for years and been to every therapist, done every type of treatment and taken far too many anti-inflammatories without success. After only three treatments, he has been able to greatly reduce my pain. He is insightful, thorough, knowledgeable and capable. I feel better than I have in a very long time. Thanks Trevor!

Trevor has done a great job in helping to balance the muscles that have been causing my SI joint dysfunction. He also helped with my shoulder and neck this treatment. Thanks for getting me aligned Trevor!

Hey Trevor! Guess who just went for a 6km run and had absolutely no hip pain! This Gal! You are a wizard! Thanks!

Had my first treatment today with Trevor. I was not really sure what to expect having an Osteopathy treatment. We talked first about how I was feeling and he asked questions and answered any questions I had to help with his treatment. It has only been a couple of hours and I already feel so much more movement in my upper body and my hip is no longer aching. Trevor is very knowledgeable and professional. I am looking forward to my next treatment.

I went to Trevor for the first time today, somewhat reluctantly as I've never had much success with other types of treatment for my issues and chronic pain. Not only did Trevor treat my migraine which was my sole purpose for the visit, he also fixed other problems I didn't even know existed. I would highly recommend him to others!
