I have one more great reason to come back to Nelson again next winter!
— JP Toivonen, Ski Journalist - Finland
Thanks to our work together I was able to re-connect to my inner athlete and regain confidence in being active between surgeries. I can’t believe I’m back to hiking and playing ultimate!
— Shannon Carter - Nelson, BC
Being a competitive hockey player, injuries were all too familiar to me. One of the major issues I faced was chronic headaches brought on by neck issues. Throughout the hockey season Jess would treat my neck and by the end of the treatments my headaches would be completely gone. I am so thankful for her keeping me in the game!!
— Kyle Bell, Jr. B Hockey - Kerry Park Islanders
Just want to send you a note to let you know how well my orthotics are working, all the pain from the pressure points is gone and for the first time in many years I am walking with no pain. I walked all over New York City for 5 days and never once had sore feet, I am still amazed. Thank You so much for what you did for me.
— Lonnie Snyder - Nelson BC

I have now resumed yoga, swimming, bicycling, and cross-country skiing, and can even wash windows again. I highly recommend Christy Nichol!
Christy worked with me by gradually targeting the old and new injuries with various approaches in ways that clicked for me. She included referrals to other health professionals to assist with much needed support. Christy’s patient, knowledgeable, holistic and personalized treatment plan of both shoulders resulted in a full resumption activities that I had been missing for so long.
— Britt Wood - Nelson BC
I have been suffering from some long term injuries that I thought would not let me run again. Visits to many health care professionals left me with temporary relief, but no solution. Christy was was able to break down my movements and assign exercises and stretching that let me become active again. She explained the issues in terms that made sense to me, so that I could fully understand what I needed to do. She empowered me to make the changes that I needed to make in order to be able to enjoy an active lifestyle without worrying that I was going to break down every time.
— Mark Dennis - Nelson, BC
I came to Christy with every part of my body hurting, I have a twist in my spine which created patterns that caused many challenges my whole life and now I am unwinding, strengthening and learning to move with out pain. The process is slow and steady and I seem to be cruising in a pain free zone more often.
I’ve been a member of the Canadian National Wheelchair Rugby team for over ten years. During that time, I’ve worked with many great therapists and I can say without a doubt that Jessie Wylie ranks among the best. In particular, she has been fantastic at treating my chronic neck and shoulder problems and has always gotten me game-ready in record time! If getting back to enjoying your life pain free is important to you I highly recommend seeing her!

My knee is the best it has been in a long time!! Please keep doing your thing. I feel very lucky to have received your help.
— Andrew Colgan - BC
About 2 years ago you helped with ACL rehab on my right knee that got me back on track. You did such an awesome job I recommend anyone who has similar problems to give you a call. Even after our first session I was feeling so much better!
— Tom Weager - Nelson, BC
Jessie was completely instrumental in me being able to partake in the Rio 2016 Paralympics with a healthy body. Not only did she help me with recovery from every day training, but was crucial in helping me absolve some chronic issues after dealing with prolonged health complications.
— Miranda Biletski, Canadian National Wheelchair Rugby Team
You’ve given me my happy back.
— Kimberley Hyatt - Nelson, BC
After my 2 knee replacements, I found going up and down stairs in regular fashion, alternating one foot and then the other, difficult. After a year and a half I found Christy and with her help was able improve strength and flexibility to the point where stairs are no longer a problem.
— Sandy Hartman - Castelgar, BC
I feel I can overcome any challenge without medical intervention!! I feel more even emotionally and joy when I discover how to use a muscle correctly or I can shift into a new stance that feels right. I can feel the willingness of the brain to create a new pathway that is healthy, it’s exciting. I feel empowered and more confident in sitting down, standing straight going up and down stairs, and doing workouts. I am now working on getting in and out of a kayak with out pain. I feel expertly held in my healing and strengthening. I feel encouraged every step of the way. The whole process is a wonderful learning experience.
— Marsha Donner - Nelson, BC
Because you work from the perspective of mind, body, and soul, you were able to empower me to unimagined heights of capacity after I had my total knee replacement. The healing was a VERY slow process but with your steady encouragement and interventions, I developed a great deal of patience and body strength. The end result being that I now have a knee that functions well beyond my hoped for expectations.
