Got a pain that won’t go away?
Diploma in Massage Therapy (CCNM) Clininal Training: Dr Clemens Franzmayr Clinical Training/Mentoring: Dr Joe Brownlee
Early 2001 I was diagnosed with an L5 /S1 disc protrusion (that’s at the base of the lower back). I was hounded by a relentless, crippling back and sciatic pain and considered surgery when I decided to search for an alternative. Having exhausted all convential and some less mainstream  treatments, I attended a myriad of day and weekend body-work courses up and down the country. I was even driving a round trip of 500km for weekly treatment but still had no lasting improvement. Finally I was referred to a Doctor of Manual Therapy. The result...... AMAZING ! It was like he had hardly touched me but the pain was gone and I felt?......FREE. Previously unable to sit without sciatic pain or lift anything even remotely heavy I am now able to sit pain free and as you can see from a recent photo lifting very heavy objects has been life changing. Sure, there are some subsequent follow up treatments and I have to do homework stretches but I am now 90% better. Now having completed training under the expert guidance of this dedicated and very gifted man I understand the depth required to make the  difficult  seem simple.
