Wholistic Therapy Testimonials
I have had chronic back pain for 20 years. My back problems have been managed by physiotherapy 2- 3 times a week, and a massage every 2 weeks. A friend suggested I see Darlene and have Craniosacral Therapy done. I started to have regular Craniosacral therapy treatments and during that time, Darlene encouraged me to try her Yoga class. I have never looked back, my back pain is so much better and manageable.
I was referred to Darlene, I am always amazed after I have a session with Darlene, she is so caring and nurturing. Her skills are superb. I would recommend her to anyone wanting a great healing session.
I've been a client of Darlene's for quite some time and have experienced her compassionate, intuitive, healing abilities through the gift of CST. Stuck negative emotions always manifest as great stories in our lives, which Darlene acknowledges with great respect. Through my tears, and our laughter together, we have shifted and released the energies and my stories have become things of the past.
I have been seeing Darlene for CST. She has helped my body release past traumatic events and ongoing severe pain from fibromyalgia. There is "magic" in Darlene's hands. Magic is of course a relative term, it involves training, skill, intuition and the utmost caring for the client with whom she is working with. With all these factors in play nothing short of "magic" can be expected.
I started seeing Darlene when undergoing orthodontic treatment at the suggestion of my homeopath. CST helped relieve the tension in my neck and shoulders and keeps my body functioning at it's best. My whole family receives treatments to keep our bodies in alignment. The therapy is amazing. I encourage everyone to try a therapy session with Darlene. She is an experienced therapist with a solid knowledge base and provides a kind, welcoming atmosphere. Darlene truly cares about her clients and makes treatments enjoyable as well as therapeutic.

My son, has bee seeing Darlene for CST. It has been fantastic for all his hockey injuries. Darlene worked on my son after a concussion, and it helped him heal so much faster. Knee issues have been so much better, with regular sessions. We see Darlene on a regular basis for maintenance, as hockey can be very hard on the physical body. My son loves the treatments and leaves the session extremely relaxed.
I always enjoy my visits with Darlene. I feel safe and respected and always enjoy feeling the energy flowing in my body. Each visit is a new discovery. Thank you Darlene, for your expertise.
Darlene is one of my favourite holistic health practitioners. There is something special about her treatments, that is almost impossible for me to describe.

I love the gentleness of her sessions and the results. She has the most magical, peaceful, beautiful, get away place, in the Athabasca area, where I have had experienced many healing sessions.
I have been doing yoga since the fall of 2014. Darlene reassured me that I could participate at my own capabilities. After attending yoga once a week for four months, I was able to decrease the frequency of my physio to once a week. I have gained both increased mobility and strength. Yoga has become therapeutic for me both physically and emotionally. I never felt pushed to hold a pose longer than I could and was reassured to hear Darlene say “ if that is where you are at today, then that is your pose for today.” Darlene always encourages her student’s to work at their own pace. It is really great to participate in a yoga class with a variety of skill levels and always feel that I belong there too.
