“I work as Midwife in a hospital and feel that my body needs constant attention in order to maintain my work life balance. Stretch for Life has given me relief at the end of a twelve hour shift when my lower and upper back are sore from positions I get myself into at work. Thanks to Tim Judd for putting the time and energy into designing this (DVD) tool. it has really changed my life.”

As a result of an work accident 2 years ago, I have had severe pain in my hips. I work for the New Zealand Fire Service and the pain caused me to have problems doing day to day activities, maintaining my fitness for work and I could not sleep on my side. I was referred to a physiotherapist by a orthopedic surgeon for 2 years and the pain got worse.

About 4 months ago I was told by work colleague to try Tim Judd and what a difference he made immediately. Tim is a natural listener and has been meticulous in gathering information about my symptoms before treating me. Over the course of the treatments he used various treatment methods and he stretched the muscles in my hips and legs and I now have no pain. The results were evidenced by the speed at which I was able to return to my job, and life.
