Patient Recommendation

Greg Webb: Registered Massage Therapist and Touch For Health Instructor Tel (403) 294-1999 Pager (403) 260-9919 Therapeutic Massage Touch for Health Specialized Kinesiologies Assisted Stretching HYPERTON-X (Calgary, Alberta CA) On a recent trip to Calgary I was lucky enough to work with Greg for 1 week. During the course of a week, using non-traditional and traditional techniques (listed below) Greg decreased my daily pain level and restored tremendous range of motion to both my hands (I can now flex my left hand almost 25 degrees more than I could two weeks ago). Upon my return to Ontario last week I almost sent my Physical Therapist into shock! :) I am now attempting to move to Calgary so that I can work for an extended period of time with Greg Webb. I feel I owe it to myself to rediscover pain free living! I am now 26 and thanks to Greg I feel that there is hope for a happier more active future.
