Reviews

During the time I had sciatica, I had countless therapies with "very little" or "no relief" of the pain. When I got up off of Garry's table I had some minor sore spots here and there but the burning (electrifying shocks) I had been experiencing for two months prior were gone. I remember thinking will this last, and or for how long? It did. The sore spots went away in a couple of days and the sciatica has not come back. It has been over four months now and all is well. I am so thankful to have found Garry.

Many people have become the best they can be because of his gentle concern, respect, and encouragement. These are the students, apprentices, and assistants who might have quit long ago under the tutelage of a less sensitive instructor. Because of his faith in them, they now possess self-esteem and self-confidence.
