Dr. Sandy Macleod

Dr. Macleod graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science and a Doctorate of Chiropractic. He became interested in the profession after being exposed to Chiropractic for treatment of injuries sustained while playing high school football that refused to heal with conventional medical care. Those few adjustments that allowed him to get back on the field intrigued him enough to investigate the profession. In the first 10 years of his career he had the opportunity to practice and learn from several established Chiropractors that combined for well over 100 years of experience. He believes structure of the body governs the function of the body. If you just treat the acute problem and do not find out why it happened then problems inevitably return. At Freedom, patients take an active roll in there treatment. This allows them to recover quicker and break the pattern of inflammation that comes with pain and dysfunction. Dr. Macleod is passionate about Chiropractic and enjoys watching the benefits his patients see from it everyday.

If someone told me 25 years ago that I would be doing massage therapy full time over the years I may not have believed them. However, over the last two and a half decades I found I truly love what I do and cannot even imagine myself doing anything else. This has not been a “job” to me but a fabric of my life. I truly believe in the benefits of massage and have had amazing results with my clients over the years. I feel proud to know that I still see many of my original clients from when I first started doing massage therapy.

Having grown up in Calgary, receiving my undergraduate degree in Physical education as well as my massage therapy diploma from Foothills College of Massage Therapy, I have deep roots to Calgary. I feel proud to live here and raise a family here. I am a true believer of maintaining one’s fitness throughout their entire life. I try to instill an active lifestyle in both my clients and my own family. I have a passion for outdoor activities from camping, gardening to cycling to work to paddleboarding. Basically, anything that gets me outside and active.

My massage practice involves a client focused approach. Everyone who I see comes to me with specific, individual lists of complaints. My practice gears towards specific goals towards each client to ensure that they can live a pain-free, increased mobility lifestyle. I have developed a “think outside the box” approach when it comes to helping a client achieve specific goals. I often say to my clients that where they feel their pains and where that pain may be coming from may not be the same location. I like to treat my treatments as a game of clue; trying to solve their issues by listening to their complaints and determining by the massage what I feel is the cause and together we will develop a treatment plan to achieve their massage goals.
