Why Choose Us For Your Next Appointment?
Part of answering the question “why choose us” for your next chiropractic or massage therapy appointment in Calgary involves introducing Chiropractors Dr. John Battershill and Dr. Keith Belliveau and Registered Massage Therapist Rebecca Goble at Revelation Health Centre.
Dr. John Battershill, Chiropractor
Dr. John has been a chiropractor in Calgary for almost 30 years while being a patient of chiropractic care for over 40. He brings a lifetime of professional and personal experiences that contribute positively to his skill as a chiropractor into the treatment room.
As an ex-professional football player with the Calgary Stampeders and Toronto Argonauts, Dr. John has not only seen and successfully treated sports injuries and concussions, but has experienced them himself.
One reason Dr. John became a chiropractor was because of an injury sustained while playing football. He credits chiropractic for getting him back in playing condition in a relatively quick fashion. This experience, coupled with a desire to help people, pointed Dr. John in the direction of the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) where he completed his chiropractic degree.
Dr. John has taken his desire to help people accomplish their dreams and achieve their goals by seeking out complimentary treatment methods. These diverse treatment methods has allowed Dr. John to create a chiropractic and wellness centre dedicated to serving the health needs of the whole person by treating all contributing factors of symptoms and pain.
Dr. John doesn’t believe in band-aid treatments which serve to simply eliminate the initial symptoms present on your first visit, but aims to address the root cause of the problem so that your initial symptoms do not return.
As you can imagine, being a professional football player is rather hard on the body and the brain. During his career, Dr. John did sustain more than one concussion on the football field which had led him to a new passion: treating concussions and other brain-related conditions.
Dr. John did not want long term cognitive and neurological issues for himself or his patients; therefore, he began learning from Dr. Carrick who is the founder of functional neurology. Dr. Carrick is largely responsible for getting Sydney Crosby back on the ice following Crosby’s two suffered concussions in 2010 / 2011.
As a result of his learning, Dr. John has created a concussion / traumatic brain injury treatment program we here at Revelation Health Centre call “Re-Gain Your Brain“. Because when it comes to your brain….. nothing can be more precious as it is the intelligence centre of your central nervous system. This treatment plan is just one of several that Dr. John uses to help his patients achieve their personal health goals.

As a Calgary chiropractor, his primary focus is on the spine and nervous system. However, Dr. Keith looks at the body as a whole and explores other factors that contribute to health and healing such as nutrition, exercise and lifestyle habits.

Through involvement in low-impact sports like yoga, golf and squash, to ‘extreme’ sports like skateboarding and snowboarding, to contact sports like football and rugby, he has accumulated a diverse set of sports-related experiences (and injuries). These experiences, combined with his training in sports chiropractic, translates into broad clinical knowledge Dr. Keith uses with his athletically inclined patients.
Dr. Keith focuses on living a balanced, active and healthy lifestyle (which includes regular chiropractic adjustments) that allows him to function at his highest potential, prevent injury, achieve optimal energy, and maintain optimal health.
Dr. Keith has been trained in various chiropractic adjusting techniques, and has received additional training in the fields of neurology, pediatrics, soft tissue techniques, nutrition, functional medicine, sports chiropractic and exercise science.
