"I recently had a series of shiatsu sessions with Phil to build up my resilience to radiotherapy and chemotherapy cancer treatment.  I surprised the medical team by how well I did, with no need for morphine or other strong pain relief." Dongrier Kondh, Treesponsibility Leader

“I started seeing Phil for Shiatsu due to illness several years ago and found the techniques used to be very relaxing and therapeutic. The combination of gentle pressure massage and manipulation of joints helps with my aches and pains and reduces the tension in my body. I would highly recommend Phil as a Shiatsu practitioner and his calm nature compliments the treatment. I have been having regular shiatsu with Phil for nearly 10years!” Debbie P, mother

"I first went to Phil for Shiatsu because of chronic back pain & stiffness 5½ years ago.  I immediately found the results of just one session to be immensely relaxing.  At first, I had a course of  two-weekly sessions, and then reduced this gradually.  I now go every eight weeks, which I feel keeps me 'topped up'. My back pain and stiffness has massively reduced and it is many many months since I took any medication for pain.  I also benefited from Shiatsu following shoulder surgery.  My work is quite stressful and Shiatsu really helps me to re-balance and take a fresh perspective.”  Jane M, NHS
