If you struggle with chronic pain, I highly recommend that you book an appointment with Mariano Tores. He is a remarkable acupuncturist! I was experiencing chronic knee pain following a motor vehicle accident and, after 3 treatments, I experienced a significant improvement in my symptoms. His process includes an assessment with a holistic approach. He utilizes exceptional listening skills as well as massage techniques on the affected areas that make a real difference. He took time to answer all the questions I had. I highly recommend Mariano Tores’ services. He certainly is MY (and my loved ones) go-to acupuncturist.read more
I have been going here as needed since last year, and Anne Liebhart is a muscular miracle worker. I cannot recommend her highly enough. All of the staff I have encountered are very friendly, and have worked hard to create a calm environment in the house. As soon as you walk in, you are no longer in the loud and busy city, you are in a serene retreat.If it were realistic, I would go here every day.read more
The team at Integrated Therapies is top notch. I had flexibility issues and knee problems stemming from my work and physical training. The course of treatments solved all of my problems quickly. I have been problem free for 2 years!read more
Went for a couples massage with my girlfriend on April 7. They have a very welcoming environment that's extremely relaxing while waiting for our appointment. They offered tea while we filled out first time paprework. They offer direct billing for most major insurance companies, except blue cross for acupuncture I heard. I had Karina, and My GF had Anna. Both were extremely professional, kind, thoughtful, and strong. Literally almost fell asleep it was so relaxing. Definitely returning as my back has never felt this good in over a decade!read more
From the moment I arrived at Integrated Therapies I felt a sense of peace. Located in an adorable character house in the heart of old Strathcona, it is clear that every detail has been carefully considered.

I felt as though I had arrived home.Anne, is so wonderfully knowledgeable and skilled; I feel that she truly wants and can help. Her refreshing authenticity and passion for healing was a perfect pairing for the cranial relief I have long sought. The pressure and tension I have carried for years was kindly eased and released.I am grateful to have been guided to what I needed and look forward to exploring what is offered. Integrated Therapies is strongly recommended for learning, growing and healing. With gratitude, Elizabeth Leenheerread more
This was my first massage therapy session ever, and I was not disappointed. I was first greeted by the building’s very calm and relaxing atmosphere. The lady at the front desk was very helpful and kind. I met with my therapist Alyssia and we created an effective treatment plan based off of my history and current muscle pain. I am still amazed by the results of just one appointment and I look forward to many more. I recommend Integrated Therapies to everyone .read more
Soledad is amazing! She’s not only a wonderful yoga teacher but also very pleasant and easy to work with. She asks loads of questions during your sessions to ensure that the yoga sessions are helping and wants to learn about the muscles and what you are feeling. Great experience would highly recommend!read more
Came here to do a couples massage with my bf a few days ago for our anniversary, it was both our first times getting an actually massage. When arriving to the place, we were greeted by the lovely receptionist who made us feel like home. While getting the massage I kind of wished they actually focused more on the areas me and my bf explained to do but that doesn’t mean they did a terrible job. After the massage we felt a bit sore still, hoping that’s supposed to be normal but overall experience here was good.read more
Because I have had some not so great experiences at other bussinesses and the experience kind of turned me off from these services, I went to Integrated Therapies and I didn't feel as though I was in a stuffy doctors office. The environment and the approach in which I was treated was very welcoming, calming and inviting. I continue to go because of the way my services are provided to me. Each staff has a unique way of working with me so that I receive optimal treatment. When I leave I am not only receiving treatment for my body but feel healing for my mind, spirit and emotions as well.read more

Mariano was amazing - I went for acupuncture and he threw in a bit of massage as well. I feel so good!! Stretched out some parts of me that I didn't even know were causing issues. Very holistic approach!read more
I had my first appointment with Karina last week (deep tissue massage). She was very kind and welcoming, and she made an extra effort to address my particular needs before we began the massage, to make me extra comfortable! I had woke up with a cold that morning, so she put a tissue with peppermint oil beneath the massage table so I could breathe easier, and she suggested to put a pillow underneath my stomach to reduce the strain on my lower back during the massage (as it is extra curved). I was very impressed with her level of awareness and attention. She also gave extra tips on how I could improve my posture to reduce neck pain; she seemed to be very knowledgeable. The massage itself was excellent; the best I have ever had. Additionally, the facility is beautiful, clean, and there is free parking at the back of the building. I love business that are in houses- so welcoming and calming! Highly recommended.read more

Frank is AMAZING. History: I have periods of severe back pain due to my desk job and a spine condition and there are days where I can barley even move. I experience a sharp stabbing pain in my neck and back and sleeping during those times is near impossible as any movement causes extreme pain and wakes me up.I have tried so many Massage Therapists over the years, and have had a range of experiences from absolutely terrible to just okay. I never stuck with one person for very long.Then I booked an appointment with Frank and I have never been to another Registered Massage Therapist since. From our first meeting, Frank was so knowledgeable and compassionate. He took the time to listen to me and go over what all my issues were. He was thorough in understanding my situation and built a plan to help me. Cannot say enough good things about him!read more

Overall I have enjoyed all of my experiences with her and highly recommend if you are looking for the perfect therapist who takes the time to understand your needs and follow up with how you're doing every visit! Thank you so much for you kindness and compassion. I can't wait for my next visit!read more
