Peter, Corsham

Peter has suffered chronic back pain since his early 20s. At its worse, he was left immobile for up to a week.

He had to take time off work and would spend a lot of money on more traditional treatment and medication, which he now believes was simply firefighting.

Since working with Dr Thomasina, his pain has eased drastically and his overall well-being has improved.

Brian and Margaret from Buckinghamshire.

Brother and sister Brian and Margaret make a four hour round trip, sometimes up to twice a month, to visit Dr Thomasina.

Brian, in his 50s, suffered a back injury and first tried the treatment. He was initially sceptical but left the session smiling and Margaret decided to give it go.

Margaret, in her 70s, said she would even be prepared to travel to Land’s End for Dr Thomasina’s work - as it is the ‘best medical treatment’ she has come across.

Margaret had experienced whiplash in a car crash and had physiotherapy. But she found the treatment was too intense for her. Instead, she finds Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) leaves her feeling loosened and de-stressed.

The computer and marketing consultants are often hunched over their computers and say the treatment helps to release tensions and prevent damage.
