Cori, WCB patient

“After suffering from chronic headaches along with neck and shoulder pain for more than 15 years, I was recommended to see Kira at Health First and I have never looked back. I am consistently impressed by her approach and knowledge of the human body, and look forward to each and every appointment. My pain has dramatically improved and best of all, No More Headaches! Thank you Kira.”


“Thank you so much..the numbness in my arm is completely gone. Very knowledgeable and friendly every visit. I recommend you to everyone I know.”

Shane D., Pilot

“I had suffered with lower back pain and sciatica for over a year. It was very painful down my left leg and right to the bottom of my foot. I went to a chiropractor and to physiotherapy. Neither helped. I went to “Health First” for massage therapy and was treated by Kira Sanchez. After 3 treatments, I was pain-free and after a few more it is gone. Thank you Kira”

Barry Neufeld

“My husband and I have now been coming for over two years to see Kira Sanchez. Kira has the knack for just finding the spots that are needed to be worked on. In addition, Kira is very insightful and able to problem solve and make very good recommendations or referrals that just seem to work. Yes, we pay to have it hurt for our sessions but the relief found afterward is well worth it. Keep doing what you do Kira and all the best in the future.”
