What Our Practice Members Have To Say

  • "I have been a patient for 2 years. Right from the start I knew that this was the place for me. Their holistic approach to care is what I was looking for. The staff are incredibly kind and knowledgeable and the doctors are not only good doctors but great people who have a genuine interest in your health and well being. You never feel like just a number in this clinic."
  • "I had suffered from severe migraines for many years and nothing seemed to "cure" them. Almost immediately after starting chiropractic care, I began to notice changes. Not only did the headaches cease, but my energy level increased, I slept better, I was not sick as much, and I overall felt better."
    - Lindsay B.
  • "I started back in April 2016 to fix by back and neck pain. After one month of adjustments not only did my headaches go away, however, I also ended up losing ten pounds of weight even though I didn't change my eating habits.

    I decided to capitalize on this and started to eat healthier and do a lot more walking, increasing my weight loss and lowering my blood sugars as well. So far I'm down fifteen pounds and feel much more active.

    Thanks Arc of Life - It's amazing how getting rid of Subluxations can improve overall health."
  • "I so enjoy coming in to be adjusted or to have my children adjusted by Dr. Pauline and Dr. Brent. They make you feel so at home, and the entire team is so lovely. You feel, and genuinely are, so well cared for every step of the way. Just head in to meet them all and you will know that you are in the right place!"
  • ""A wonderful way to take care of yourself. They offer great chiropractic care, massage therapy and advice on how to maximize your health through making better choices.""
  • ""Dr.Pauline and Dr.Brent are kind, caring, and knowledgeable chiropractors that have helped me and my daughter tremendously. I would highly recommend Pauline for prenatal/postnatal and pediatric care as well!""
  • "I just love coming for my adjustments at Arc of Life Chiropractic Ottawa. It's like taking a mini-vacation every time I lie on the table. My husband and I have been coming regularly since September 2016 and we both feel more energized since we started our healing journey. Dr Pauline, Dr Brent and the whole team are warm, caring and compassionate. I was suffering from sciatic pain for the last 20 years and even though the area remains vulnerable, it is no longer bothering me. My neck injury is well managed and I no longer have pain."
