2016 Trestermonials - Vancouver Chiropractors

Vancouver chiropractors, Vancouver chiropractor, Vancouver chiropractic, Chiropractor vancouver, Chiropractor in Vancouver

Amazing - attentive - effective! I started seeing Dr. Trester as a referral from a friend when I found out I was pregnant. I decided to check it out because I had heard about the benefits of chiropractic for pregnancy. When I first came into the clinic, I had mild sciatic pain but throughout the last 4 months I've had nothing but an amazing pregnancy. With his treatments, I've have had absolutely NO back or sciatic pain whatsoever, and have been able to 'avoid' pregnancy symptoms. I've been able to stay active (teaching multiple cardio dance fitness classes each week) as well as continue travelling and working with thousands of students in elementary and high schools across Canada. Even though I've been growing larger with the baby, I have found that my mobility and energy have increased. I strongly believe that this amazing pregnancy that I'm having can largely be attributed to the fact that I'm receiving prenatal chiropractic care. Every visit to their offices is so lovely - Shalene is a fantastic office manager who is incredibly helpful and accommodating with appointment bookings and insurance papers, and Dr. Trester's genuinely attentive nature is amazing. You can tell that the team at West 1st Chiro really cares for their patients and to help find solutions in guiding your body towards optimal health.

I started coming to Dr. Trester because, as per usual, I was curious about myself. As an actor I am consistently monitoring how myself, in terms of the physical and spiritual, orchestrates and operates on various different levels of our 3 dimensional world. Dr. Trester and Shalene introduced to me the world of Chiropractory and all its benefits and helped me to develop a better understanding of what happens to our bones over time with or with out the proper maintenance and guidance.

With my first adjustment in 2008 and having now 8 years of adjustments my understanding has allowed me to notice the affects this has had on me in various aspects of my life. At first I wanted to get in touch with just my spine but now I have more knowledge on its relationship with my nervous system and its connection with my body as a whole and can I truly physically feel my entire spine. On a more subtle level I notice improvement with my immune system and assistance in respiratory aid during allergy season; and, continued proper posture and alignment meant more confidence and self-esteem. Overall, my awareness, my physicality, allergy tolerance, and regular day-to-day enjoyment, has increased with regular adjustments.

As much as getting regular adjustments is important the ones doing the adjusting is certainly just as important to me, if not more. Getting to know Dr. Trester and Shalene over the years has instilled more confidence and belief that they are the right people to be helping me in this area of expertise. They are ambassadors of a healthy lifestyle and therefore their influence isn't easily lost. I aspire for great things and it all starts with a healthy body and a healthy mind. Thank You Dr. Trester and thank you Shalene for your continued love, support and encouragement over the years.

Blessings,

Thank you, Dr. Trester for taking the scoliosis wonkiness out of my spine! And the clicky-ness out of my neck! And the lopsided-ness out of my shoulders! You did it so quickly, so gently, so simply that it almost doesn't seem real, but it is. My posture is better, my sight is better, I have less headaches, I feel more confident. I'm just so happy about it all!

Can I tell you a secret? I've had this personal desire to build up my strength for decades. I would begin some kind of body-building regime with high hopes, but I would have to stop because something about my body structure would fail. And then I'd feel dispirited as I would look into the mirror seeing a overly-lean, hunching-over frame showing itself back to me-again. Now I'm able to do resume body building and everything feels good **for the first time**, like a well-balanced machine. No pops, clicks, off-kilter oddness. I have so much appreciation and gratitude for my wonderful body working and equal sentiments for you and Shalene!

P.S. I am also pleased that you've helped my friends with this visionary method you practice--it's a joy to see them literally come back to life!

My friend and I went to the VegExpo this past April 2016 to explore and learn new ways to live a more sustainable, healthy lifestyle and to support local and national businesses. We sampled new food and drinks, and met amazing people who promote health and wellness. Among those people, we met Dr. Trester and Shalene, and I am beyond blessed that we did!

Researched chiropractors in Vancouver and came across West 1st Chiropractic Wellness Centre and its many positive reviews. Dr. Trester thoroughly interviewed me and described the TRT method he uses to treat patients with subluxations. I was suffering from some low back pain, and sciatica. After the X-rays discovered a whole lot more Dr. Trester went to work on treating me. The pains, stiffness, and sciatica have disappeared. My mobility has increased. My energy levels have increased. The dark circles under my eyes are almost gone...I sleep far better than at any time in the past 10 years.

Recent blood tests were excellent but the big shock was that my blood pressure was 'Optimal'. The healthcare provider double checked and questioned me again, "Are you on any medication?" I certainly am not! Am looking forward to continuing treatment and the lifestyle changes!

I truly thank you Dr. Trester.

My friend and I went to the VegExpo this past April 2016 to explore and learn new ways to live a more sustainable, healthy lifestyle and to support local and national businesses. We sampled new food and drinks, and met amazing people who promote health and wellness. Among those people, we met Dr. Trester and Shalene, and I am beyond blessed that we did!

Prior to coming in for my official consultation, I didn't know too much about chiropractic care. I studied psychology and the sciences in my university years but it wasn't until the day of the expo where we had a brief overview of what it was, how it worked, and that it was a service that I had access to. Growing up, my health has always been a struggle. I've had way more blood (and other) tests, ultrasounds, and doctors/specialist appointments done than an average person gets in one year. It was to the point where getting checked constantly became my routine and yet nothing seemed to progress. I was always an active person (still am), seen multiple specialists, and did everything that I thought would help me feel better and be better yet nothing seemed to work. I was honestly just tired of being tired and didn't like the feeling of being forever "sick." It wasn't until the Fall of 2012 when my body gave up on me for the first time. I was rushed to the hospital and was told that I was over-exhausted/burnt out. To top it all off, my body lost 15 lbs in less than a week within that week. My migraines intensified, my digestion and absorption were severely impaired, and it was very challenging to function optimally on a daily basis especially with everything that I was involved in. After we met Dr. Trester and Shalene at the expo, we talked about the possibility of how THIS could be what I needed and what I was looking for.

Later that week, we had our official consultation and report. Dr Trester was thorough with his findings, made sure we understood what was happening, and answered any and all of our questions. It all made sense and definitely made me question why I haven't heard of chiropractic care sooner! Both Dr Trester and Shalene made us feel well-educated and prepared for our future appointments. At every appointment, I definitely felt valued and cared for by Shalene and Dr Trester. Since then, I've been going to my appointments regularly and have noticed a tremendous difference in my overall health. My migraines decreased significantly, my digestion and absorption increased, my body felt less tense, and my sleep quality was so much better. On top of my daily exercise, healthier eating habits and community involvement, chiropractic care was definitely a big contributor to me getting back on track and living my life to its fullest potential. I recommend chiropractic care to everyone and for everyone.

Thank you, Dr Trester and Shalene for being a part of my health journey!

The saying, "You will never know how bad you feel until you start feeling better" applies very well to chiropractic care. I met the Tresters at the Vancouver Health Show on Saturday, November 7, 2015. I had my initial consultation on Monday, November 9 and my first adjustment on Thursday, November 19 and began feeling better almost immediately.

Until that time, I had been living with various aches and pains that I had accepted as part of the aging process. Overshadowing them all was a constant very sharp pain in my upper right arm diagnosed by my MD as a rotator cuff injury. A few days after that initial adjustment, I realized the pain in my arm was barely noticeable.

Since then, other concerns some of which I mentioned in January have been corrected:
my posture and flexibility have improved
pain in both elbows, both wrists and the right side of my right hand is gone
pressure I used to feel on my windpipe when I would lie on my back is gone
abdominal breathing has become unrestricted
pain I had in the right side of my rib cage is gone
my legs, which previously felt like they were curved to my right, now feel straight

Right now, I'm most excited about my feet! Since I hired Dr. Trester, I have "fired" Dr. Scholl: his inserts have been removed from my shoes because I no longer get pain in my heels and arches. I'm also standing more squarely on my heels rather than on the sides. I know this because my old runners are worn down on the outside of the heels. Previously, when I would deliberately try to stand properly in those shoes, my feet would roll to the sides where the heels are worn down. They don't do that anymore. The wear pattern that's beginning to develop on my new runners confirms that.

The care I'm receiving from Dr. Trester is raising the quality of my life by relieving those pains which had nothing to do with aging and everything to do with a subluxated spine. The amazing thing, to me, is that he accomplished all of this without being told about any of it except that sore right arm. The funny thing is, I was so used to all of those other aches and pains, that even if he had asked me, I probably couldn't have told him about them. I'm excited to see what continued chiropractic can do because I am feeling better or, maybe, starting to.

I am a healthcare provider and very careful about who I entrust my own physical health to. Dr Trester has consistently lived up to and exceeded my expectations of what chiropractic care should be. I was in an mva July 2015 and subsequently was experiencing awful tension headaches almost daily. After three weeks of chiropractic I haven't had a tension headache since. Dr Trester is friendly and knowledgeable and his lovely wife Shalene organizes your schedule and billing so well that you don't worry about a thing. I highly recommend this office to many of my patients!

I have had recurring lower back and hip pain for several years. I have been xrayed, poked at and tied up like a pretzel in my attempts at finding a way to alleviate the pain. The pain progressed from recurring to constant and was affecting all aspects of my life. From not sleeping to not wanting to socialize, and everything in between. I could no longer raise my leg high enough to get into my car or walk up stairs.

I was an emotional wreck. I could not live with myself. I am so grateful to my family and friends for putting up with such a CRAB! I was complaining, yet again, to a very patient friend and he told me of his success with Dr. Trester treating his troubling migraines. He was so pleased with his results, he wanted me to enjoy those same successes. Truly a good friend :)

From the minute I set foot in the office I knew I would get results. Greeted by one of the sweetest people on earth, I immediately felt at ease. Shalene has a special way of making you feel welcome.

Throughout the consultation and ensuing appointments, Dr Trester proved to be professional, informative, positive, warm and above all, present. Never making you feel he is rushed to get to the next patient.

The healing process encompasses not just the physical treatment but also an emotional and environmental awareness. Dr. Trester and Shalene's practice certainly accommodates those needs, making your treatment a whole experience. I felt improvement from the very first treatment. After 5 or 6 visits I was sleeping through the night and my level of pain went from constant to sporadic. I am 9 visits in and I am 95% pain free and there's no looking back. My husband says how good it is to see me smile again.

Now I tell anyone and everyone who will listen: Chiropractic works!

I am a tennis pro and have had hip problems for a few years now. I put off seeing a chiropractor for one reason or another. I'm so glad I found Dr. Randall's office. They are so professional and informative. Growing up I had my hips adjusted a few times, but I didn't realize how important the whole spine is and how your nervous system and posture could be effected. I am so happy to be correcting all of these problems now and looking forward to great posture and a healthy spine. Health is so important and making sure you take care of your body!

Very impressed with the care that I am receiving at this office!

I have been seeing a chiropractor for the last couple of years and came under Dr Trester's care & guidance back in September 2015. While his method was different from my prior caregiver, I found similar relief from my ongoing concerns. I decided to try chiropractic because I have always been a firm believer in working to heal yourself and that attitude married perfectly with chiropractic care. I should say guidance because I firmly believe that unlike regular medical care I've had in the past the power to heal rests primarily in my hands. With the guidance of a good chiropractor such as Dr Trester, I get the training and understanding of how my body works best (i.e. with a clear channel for my central nervous system). I have found the energy and enthusiasm of both Shalene and Randall to be refreshing and revitalizing. A bad day almost ALWAYS turns into a good one when I walk out of the office.

Thanks for all you do!

I first met the Tresters at the Vancouver Health Show in November 2014. I had a recurring pain in my right arm but it wasn't bothering me at the time. We briefly discussed the idea of chiropractic for general health but I declined the invitation for a consultation.

One year later, that pain in my right arm had become a constant problem and I'm right-handed. It even hurt to brush my teeth! I was back at the Vancouver Health Show in November 2015 and so were they. After Dr. Trester examined my spine, he again recommended a consultation. This time, I was motivated by my pain to make the appointment.

The consultation included x-rays which revealed the extent to which my spine was out of alignment. I was shocked and amazed that, given the condition of my spine, I didn't have more problems. In reality, I couldn't know that I didn't. The brain controls every function of the body through the nervous system. Misaligned vertebrae (known as "subluxations") can put pressure on nerves which may distort or block signals from the brain, limiting body function. Most nerves have no pain fibres so waiting for pain to get checked wasn't a good idea.

After the very first adjustment, the pain in my arm decreased dramatically and went back to being only an occasional annoyance. As we got to the end of the first 12 adjustments, I began to notice other benefits I hadn't even considered. Deep breathing became easier. Pain in my wrists, which I thought was from years of data entry, decreased. And my legs felt straight when I would lie on my back. Up until this point, they felt like they were curved to my right. I'm excited to see what the next 12 adjustments will bring!

Worried about cost? Don't be. You're going to spend your money anyway. Spend it on something that will make you feel good now and even better in the future.

How long will it take? This isn't a quick-fix. It took time for your spine to get into its current condition; it will take time to correct the problems. It's your body; you have to live with it. You decide when is enough.

Does it hurt? Not at all. If he was hurting me, I wouldn't go. It's very relaxing. I usually need a nap after my appointment.

I would recommend West 1st Chiropractic Wellness Centre to anyone. On 1st Avenue near Burrard, it's easy to get to from bus routes along Cornwall, 4th Avenue and, if you don't mind a little exercise, Broadway. There's limited parking out back but plenty of street parking.

Dr. Trester's education, training and experience enable him to work quickly and efficiently, but he'll never make you feel rushed. He knows what he's doing and he does it well. Shalene is his right arm in the office, keeping everything and everybody organized and flowing smoothly. No doubt she does far more than I know and he refers to her as his "team" with good reason. Go see Dr. Trester. You'll be glad you did. I know I am.
