“I have been visiting Dougal for a couple of years now, having experienced lower back pain for more than 20 years. Previously I had attended Chiropractor sessions and also Physiotherapy sessions with the NHS, neither of which made much of an impact on the pain. 

Since becoming a client of Dougal’s I have witnessed the level of pain reduce dramatically, and indeed it only surfaces now after a prolonged period of stress on the joints. His combination of muscle manipulation and dry needle therapy has for the first time in many years allowed me to undertake exercise which was previously prohibitive. 

In addition to his practical therapy, Dougal takes the time to listen and advise on any aspect of health, and he does so in an informative, helpful and informal manner." 

Thank you Dougal for all of your support and efforts on my behalf

 "Dougal is everything you could possibly want from a massage therapist; an ability to target the precise ache or pain you are experiencing (even when you don’t know where it is coming from yourself), provide almost immediate relief, exceptional knowledge and experience whilst being supportive and gentle and providing a haven from everyday stresses.

Having been treated by Dougal again and again over the past 7 years, he has become a rock of salvation for many an ailment, including those in the head, and I know that my views are shared by many who return to him on a regular basis.

I have been using Dougal's expertise in physical therapy for over 10 years now. A key element of his appeal as a therapist is his healing consciousness rather than simply being a masseur. He has great energy and gives this freely to assist in the healing process. I have recommended him to many people and will continue to do so.   May 24, 2011
