Testimonials

Tai Chi and Acupuncture

Being a reasonably healthy mid 60 year old it was with some sadness that a few years ago I was told I had heredity glaucoma.  The pressures had been gradually building up for years in my eyes.  So yes I have to been seen regularly at the hospital for the pressures to be checked, but I decided to get other help.  

For me acupuncture was the way to go, combined with Qigong (a form of Tai Chi).  Well I am thrilled to report that the pressures are now down to normal.  I believe that keeping the natural flow of energy in the body is very very important and acupuncture and Tai Chi are very good at doing this.  

So thank you Dan for helping me and I do recommend others to use these treatments. 

Rose.

Tai Chi 

I have a medical problem which started about ten years ago with minor damage to my spinal cord which killed some motor nerves to my legs.  After surgery I was told that they had stabilised the problem, but they couldn’t help me any more….

I was left with almost full faculties, but with a slightly strange walk which developed into me walking like a duck!  As the muscles in my legs tried to compensate they tightened up and just made matters worse.  Physiotherapists wrote copious notes and suggested stretching exercises, but not much happened.

My wife and I always thought we would try Tai Chi once we retired, but only knew what we saw on the television.  We had never heard of Tai Chi Chi Gung Shibashi until a fortuitous meeting with Dan Gorvett, and he taught us the 18 forms in 6 weeks, where we did seemingly effortless linked exercises to build up the Shibashi Form.

It is now 3 months since I started my daily ½ hour routine, and although my progress is still slow it has been amazing.  Dan and Shibashi has helped with my strength, flexibility, balance, breathing and lung capacity.  I am now walking far more normally, and someone jogged past me the other day as I walked the dogs and I thought – I can do that – so I did!  It only lasted 100 metres – but I felt that I could go on.

I whole heartedly recommend Tai Chi Chi Gung to young and old and Dan as your teacher, who is an excellent teacher and a fount of knowledge and enlightenment,

Mike.

Acupuncture

After a failed round of IVF, I decided to embark on a course of acupuncture to complement our second attempt. I found Daniel through his website and made an appointment as he has a clinic in Barnstaple. From the very first meeting, Daniel immediately put me at ease and made me feel very comfortable, explaining how acupuncture works and what benefits I should feel - this was invaluable as I am terrified of needles! I saw him regularly throughout my fertility treatment and I can honestly say the acupuncture made me feel amazing; the relaxing side effects I enjoyed really helped to balance out the chemical fertility treatment I was having to take - it felt like a real treat to have the sessions and I looked forward to them. I am convinced that having the acupuncture with Daniel was a massive help in achieving our positive pregnancy result and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to any other IVF ladies out there considering acupuncture. Daniel, once again, thank you so much for all your help - your treatment has helped up to achieve our dream!
