Bringing Out The Tiger

Today (being Sunday March 14th) is the first time I’ve felt one hundred percent consciously present since I can remember. Not worrying about the future, not dwelling on the past, but being totally present.

I’ve practised Aikido since 2002, and re-graded for green belt again today after a couple years mental hiatus. Green belt is kind of halfway to black. I was going to write about this from Bruce Lipton’s angle of conscious versus unconscious living, but feeling this way today made so much more sense. The last time I felt like this was in 2001 when I was grading for my black belt in karate. There was a lot of nonsense going on in my life back then and putting one foot in front of the other some days seemed like an insurmountable task. I remember thinking if I don’t focus and become totally absorbed in this moment, I am going to get seriously hurt. And thus all the white noise immediately left. Through the motions there was absolute bliss for that brief period of time. The question is: Why can’t we do that all the time? Read more

Constipation

“I remembered telling friends last year that all I wanted for Christmas is for Lennox to poo regularly! Thanks to Neil that’s just what I got.”

Here are two independent cases side-by-side, which illustrate how gently correcting the upper half of the child’s nervous system, the upper neck, can profoundly influence the bottom half, bowel and bladder. So it’s not random luck! Two seemingly diametric problems, bed wetting and constipation, reach full resolution through specific upper cervical care.

Comfortable, confident, healthy children make for happy mums. Please forward these cases on to mums who want to be happy.


Spinewave was introduced to me by my mother-in-law (Pauline Lancaster) at the end of 2009. My son, Lennox, suffered from constipation which we battled with from the age of 6 months, going 4-5 days without ‘producing’.

I tried everything from changing his diet, tummy massage, natural remedies and of course, many costly visits to the doctor. Nothing seemed to work and it was breaking my heart to see our little boy in such pain and obvious discomfort. So, on the suggestion of my mother-in-Law, I took our boy to see Neil and Pip.

I was initially hesitant – probably due to my own misconceptions of how chiropractors might work. I certainly didn’t like the thought of a little kid having his back ‘clicked or cracked’. On the contrary I found Neil’s treatments gentle and painless on our son and he was always at ease during treatment sessions. I found Neil to be open and informative. He explained to me, in a way I found easy to understand, the importance of a nervous system that functions regularly. I found his explanations visual-rich and gave me an understanding of the subject that I needed to help get my family’s health back on track.

I remembered telling friends last year that all I wanted for Christmas is for Lennox to poo regularly! Thanks to Neil that’s just what I got. After just four sessions the pain and struggling he would experience had subsided completely. And very soon they would become a regular daily occurrence.

Lennox is now 15 months and he’s become a very healthy boy with a very happy Mum. I would have no trouble in recommending the team at Spinewave to anyone.

Many thanks

Bed Wetting

“Samuel started to be treated by Neil and after just 4 visits no more wet beds. Unbelievable.”

My name is Leanne Brew and I have been under Neil’s Chiropractic care for almost a year.

While sitting in Neil’s waiting room about 6 months ago I started to read some of the interesting facts that are continually on the TV screen in front of me. I had read these many times before but one caught my eye that day. It was about bed wetting in children and how it can be connected to the nervous system. I immediately thought of my six-year-old son Samuel, who even though we had tried various things still wet his bed at least twice a night. Going in for my appointment I mentioned to Neil what I had just read. He suggested I bring Samuel in for an assessment, which I did the next week.

Samuel started to be treated by Neil and after just 4 visits no more wet beds. Unbelievable. As a mother I was extremely thankful no more changing and washing of sheets in the middle of the night and Samuel no longer had the embarrassment when staying over with a friend. Neil of course was feeling pretty proud of himself and Samuel and sent Samuel a well-done card, which shows you the extra care and attention you receive from both Neil and Pip.

Our whole family myself, husband, Oliver aged 9 and Samuel all see Neil on a regular basis. Neil and Pip are always very welcoming and very happy to see you. Thank you both for taking such wonderful care of us all.
