We came to see Devan following my 9 year old’s diagnosis of complex regional pain syndrome. Erin had been on crutches for 6 weeks and unable to use her leg, due to her pain being neurological the doctors were limited with treatment options that didn’t cause her further distress and pain. We met with Dévan and he discussed using hypnotherapy as a form of treatment to get her to associate pleasurable feelings in her leg again. Within 2 weeks she was walking and off crutches. The best thing about working with Dévan is that he talked to Erin rather than just speaking to the parent as the doctors had, she engaged really well with him and I’ve been so impressed with her speedy recovery. Thank you so much Stacey
I’m so pleased with my visits to Devan in assessing and relieving me from my lower back pain. His knowledge and expertise in understanding the body and my symptoms have paid dividends. I feel much better and confident that I can use his advice to keep me in better health in the future.
I had been experiencing neck pain and headaches for several months, on recommendation I booked a consultation with Devan.
Using a combination of manipulation and acupuncture with exercises over a period of six weeks I am now happily pain free.
You are warmly welcomed to the clinic by receptionist Yvonne and Dévan is knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommend
I went to Dévan with back problems that were also affecting one leg. He was extremely thorough in determining what the problem was and then progressively dealt with it explaining all the time what he was doing and what the reaction should be. He was very professional and cleared the problem in very few visits and also indicated one or two things that I could do to help long term. I would totally recommend him to others who have similar problems.
Osteopathy (September 2021)
My son was seen quickly by Devan who was able to assess and diagnose the issues that he had. Throughout each appointment, my son and I had all treatments explained to us and further exercises demonstrated so that they could be completed properly at home. Would highly recommend Devan.
I had been suffering from shoulder pain for a long time, and it was becoming a problem for me to get a good nights sleep or to carry out everyday tasks.
A friend recommended Dévan, and although I had to travel a fair distance I decided to give the clinic a call. Yvonne was very friendly and efficient set me up with an appointment quickly.
Dévan identified the problem immediately, and with a mixture of osteopathy, acupuncture, (amazing as I am a little scared of needles) exercises,
and advice on how to help the condition at home, I am now pain free.
I felt well informed every step of the way, and Dévan was very approachable and professional and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Thank you for a very positive experience.
I first visited Dévan in late September with a very painful heel.
Within a week I had a consultation and scan (very impressed), along with a diagnosis.
I started visiting weekly for treatment. I found Dévan to be extremely thorough and understanding.
Week by week the treatment has been improving my mobility along with the excercise to the point now that I am pain free.
I cannot thank Dévan enough. Would highly recommend him. It was thanks to Hoo Sport Centre, who recommend him to me.
Osteopathy and Ultrasound (December 2018)
Two years ago I suddenly developed back pain, which radiated down my leg, causing numbness in the toes.
My doctor referred me for physiotherapy, but a year later I was still experiencing the symptoms.
Following a recommendation, I visited Devan and he has treated my condition with osteopathy and acupuncture.
I am delighted to say that I am now pain free and cannot thank Dévan enough for returning me to normal!
Osteopathy (August 2018)
As a 70 year old cynic a stiff and painful neck after a cycling injury was never going to be cured by someone poking and prodding…. well how wrong could I have been. I was recommended to go and see Dévan from a friend and as the discomfort was becoming very tiresome I went along.
Dévan listened to my problem, explained what he believed to be the issue and discussed the plan to put it right. After the first session I started to feel better and over the following weeks the pain disappeared. Right from the start the whole experience was friendly and professional and I would recommend Dévan to anyone who is in discomfort from nagging pain. I will miss the treatments and conversation but now have a neck that moves without discomfort and indeed in Dévan’s description of “good health” it is when the body feels neutral i.e. you don’t notice it…. really sums it all up. Give him a try.
Very satisfied client.
I wish to express my gratitude for greatly improving my right shoulder after a skiing collision. I could not raise my arm and was in misery while trying to sleep, I now have full mobility of my arm with only occasional slight stiffness. At sixty five years I plan to return to the slopes next year and expect to do battle with the black runs again.
Thanks again for your very effective treatment of my right shoulder, in which I have now got my life back.
Dévan was recommended to me by a friend, as I had suffered many years of neck pain. I had previously tried Physios, Osteos, chiropractors and acupuncture, which all only seemed to give a slight temporary relief. Was feeling sceptical when I first arrived, but by the third visit to Dévan, using osteopathy and acupuncture, along with exercises, my neck pain was markedly improved and I am currently even pain free, which has not been the case for many years! Thank you so much. The very friendly reception staff and Dévan’s calm, professional attitude and knowledge also helped to make my treatment a very good experience.
My daughter took me to see Devan as I was having a problem with my neck. I had been hit from behind in my car but had not associated the neck pain with the RTA. It turns out I had whiplash, which Devan diagnosed and sorted out through manipulation, acupuncture and exercises. I also had unrelated problems with my knee, which he gave me exercises for, which made a big difference to me. All the staff at NT are very pleasant and helpful and Dévan immediately makes you feel that he knows exactly what he is talking about, whilst putting you at ease.
I could not recommend Dévan more highly.
I went to see Dévan on the recommendation of a friend, and was so glad I took her advice. I had RSI from my job and knitting, and felt totally awful about life. Through osteopathy, acupuncture, and Dévan’s guidance on lifestyle changes and exercises I feel a million times better. I would not go anywhere else. I started off with weekly visits, which led to monthly, to not at all now. Although it is good to know he is there should I need him, at any time!!
Everybody at NT are friendly, professional and put you at ease. I would like to say a massive THANK YOU!!
I came to see Dévan at Natural-Touch following a prolonged period of lower back pain, which suddenly faired up to the point where every day to day normal activity was very painful / impossible. I saw Dévan on a weekly basis (to start with) where he prescribed stretching exercises.
The process of getting back to a normal life style has been fairly long (12 months) and I have also underdone facet joint injections as well. I can quite honestly say if it had not been for Dévan I would not be where I am today. He has helped me with not only an exercise regime but also been there to lend an ear from an emotional side as well.
I have found the staff at Natural-Touch very warm and welcoming, and would not hesitate to recommend them. Indeed it was a friend that recommend me to them in the first place.
Thanks again, for your help.
I am (now was!) a very nervous skier. The type and steepness of a slope had always frightened me so much that I was finding it difficult to progress. The worse my fears got the slower I wanted to ski, meaning I spent most of my time going too slow to ski properly!
I attended 3 sessions of hypnotherapy with Dévan at the Natural Touch Clinic.
Dévan helped me to relax and think of positive places and incidences that have happened in my life.
He introduced me to techniques for rationalising and controlling my fears, to a point where they (sometimes) even made me laugh out loud – certainly sing!
Dévan is a very calming, positive and reassuring person and after each session I left feeling these qualities in myself.
On our recent skiing trip I was a completely different skier! More relaxed, skiing much better, attempting runs that I would never have done before and also taking time out to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
I would never have done this previously.
Thank you Dévan – what a difference!
I had been suffering a neck problem for two years that eventually was so painful I was unable to work. For various reasons the NHS was not helping.
I was recommended Dévan at Natural-Touch Strood and I could not believe how quickly I started feeling better and now I am completely pain free.
You are treated in a professional and friendly manner, never cancelled or kept waiting.
I am very grateful to everyone at NT for making me well again and I would very much recommend them.
