For over ten years I suffered chronic back pain and was heading for the operating theatre in the hope this would be the final solution. I never met the 'knife', because a casual acquaintance told me his story. Both he and his brother had visited a natural therapy healer and experienced fantastic outcomes. Robbie for a broken toe and his brother for back pain. The therapist was a martial arts healer, who had studied this aspect of his martial arts in China.
Paul Brennan, the healer, explained, for my case, the healing was all based on muscle amnesia. He would work muscles that (and I mean work them) had been holding me in the wrong position. The current 'Gate Theory' works on a similar premises - stop the nerves sending the brain the same message and you will reduce the pain. All I know is, after ten debilitating years of pain, I visited Paul once a week for three weeks and eleven years later I'm still pain free.
