I have found Grant’s sessions to be extremely beneficial. His body work goes beyond the physical, helping also to release emotions that have been stuck in our system. He really knows how to hold the space for healing and how to handle the body to bring balance and harmony. At the end of the session I felt aligned, very light and peaceful. Highly recommended!

Every time I see Grant I leave with an experience that I want to tell others about, he allows you to find the space to reconnect with your true-self and feel physically and mentally refreshed and re-energised. He is multi-disciplinary with the experience that allows him to find what you need. I would highly recommend him to anyone searching for an authentic and valuable experience

Grant has assisted me as a massage therapist, and worked with patients in our psychiatric unit. He has both the skill and the sensitivity to be a great asset to any therapeutic team offering massage to patients and I recommend him without reservation.

Having been working with Grant for a couple of months he has made a real difference to my body, my mind and my pain levels. Breathing correctly is at the core of what he focuses on and evidently it is something I had forgotten to do prior to working with him! He works extremely hard to understand you as an individual and he seems to have a unique ability to know where my problem areas were without me saying anything. He has an extremely warm and kind demeanour and goes the extra mile to help you move forward. His techniques are first class and he has the physical strength to apply appropriate pressure when and where necessary. His work goes beyond purely physical and he is incredibly good value given the focus, energy and considerable effort he puts in to helping you move forward.

Grant’s yumeiho therapy and massage treatments are out of this world. Grant brings professionalism, extensive knowledge and magic hands to the treatments he offers. I first tried the yumeiho treatment and enjoyed the variety of techniques involved. As a result my aches and pains have since disappeared and my energy levels are back. The massage I received was incredibly relaxing and felt like I had been on a week’s holiday afterwards. Both treatments have helped rebalance me, made me feel focussed and creative as well as being more compassionate which is essential in the work I do. Grant is also very in tune with his clients and what their needs are. I can highly recommend Grant’s work!

I have had two sessions of Yumeiho treatment from Grant. I was a little apprehensive at first, having never had any sort of body treatment before, but he soon put me at ease with his skill, breadth of knowledge and sensitivity. My second session built upon my first and I really noticed the improvement. He knew when to gently remind me to think about breathing deeply, and when I did the inner tensions that I had disappeared. I was able to achieve the body positions that previously had seemed impossible for me without cramping!
I cannot recommend Grant enough. Many thanks.

I’ve had 2 Yumeiho sessions with Grant so far. I brought a whole lot of head-to-toe tension to the first one having not had a massage for a while, which was gently but firmly released and I’m glad to say I left feeling happy, relaxed, energised and free, mentally, physically and spiritually immediately afterwards.
At the second session a week later it was clear that my body was still much less tense than before and responded well to round two which again left me feeling more relaxed, lighter and with much more energy mentally and physically to get on with other stuff.

It’s slightly different to the average massage as the techniques used really seem to focus on different parts of the body, staying with them long enough to actually feel an instant improvement in terms of freedom of movement and a release of built up tension which happens as a matter of course in our busy daily working lives.

I would highly recommend anyone to try this fantastic treatment; Grant has such a gentle and healing touch and is clearly very skilled at this particular type of bodywork. He genuinely cares about you getting the most from the treatment and gives 100% so you can only leave feeling incredible and free to work on the more fun and fulfilling areas of your life because somewhere during the session something has been freed up that allows you as a result to connect with yourself on a higher frequency.

You have to trust someone to work on vulnerable areas of your body like your neck, thighs and back and Grant makes you feel comfortable so you can relax and get the best out of the session.

Try it and see, you won’t be disappointed. I’m very glad I’ve been introduced to the benefits of Yumeiho and will continue to have future treatments when I feel the need.

I have suffered with back problems for over twenty years; during that time I have spent a significant amount of money on chiropractors and osteopaths. Whilst some of these treatments provided short-term pain relief, they would always recur fairly quickly. For this reason and seeking a longer term solution, I researched specialists in my local area and was lucky enough to find Grant, a body work, massage and Yumeiho therapist.
The results have been a revelation. Following a short series of treatments, I remained pain free for over ten months, which was unheard of. Therein lies the difference between Grant and other practitioners; he genuinely wants to heal and help people to feel better, it is rather a calling of his!

Treatment in my case consists of different massage techniques to release tension and identify problem areas – I would be happy to visit Grant for the deep tissue massage alone – followed by a sequence of Yumeiho movements to align my body. Grant has the ability to accurately identify any areas of stress and works quickly to improve the situation. A few treatments is all that is normally needed to ensure total wellbeing for a significant period.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Grant’s work to anyone who is looking for a longer term solution rather than a quick fix which does not treat any underlying issues. I would also recommend the massage and bodywork that he undertakes – purely for the sense of wellness that is achieved!

I had my very first massage with Grant out of pure chance and curiosity. I immediately became a regular. His technical skills are superior to many professionals i used in the past to support the demands on my body from intensive sport activities. What makes Grant unique, however, is his incredible ability to feel what my body really needs each time, as opposed to what the simple tension in my muscle would show and mislead less capable practitioners.
Try it for yourself!

While training for the ‘RIDE 100’ this year I was in absolute agony with my back locking up. I couldn’t do more than an hour in the saddle without taking a painkiller. I knew that 9 hours in this ride would be a really tough call…I wasn’t even sure I could do it.
Two days before the race I went to see Grant for the first time…I have never had an experience like it!
Usually I come out of a massage feeling really sleepy, but this time I felt totally energised and 100% sure I could do this ride…and I did!
It took me nine and a half hours and I loved every minute of it.
I didn’t need to take any pain relief either.
Unbelievable!
Thank you so much Grant!

Uma

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the amazing session last week at Bhuti. It was painful, profound, intense and very healing! I was blown away. It felt like many years of processing and trying to understand certain visions and layers landed into clarity and some much needed release and tears. Thank you. I would love to continue the work with some more sessions as I feel it is just the beginning of clearing that trauma and creating more space. It has taken me a few days to recover but I am ready again. Thank you also for giving me such a long and generous appointment. You held and gave a lot – much gratitude.

Danielle

I enjoy a strong massage and I certainly got that! At times it was uncomfortable but only because Grant was really focusing on my blocked areas. Throughout the treatment he felt engaged and present. I could tell he was really thinking about what I needed.
I felt the effects of the massage for some time after. During the hours immediately after, I was aware of feeling relaxed, loose and calm. I felt great. For several days after I still felt less tenderness in the areas he had focused on and I have found it easier to focus on various tasks. I can certainly see the benefit of a course of treatments to really get the full impact of the work. Having said that, as a one-off it was really very helpful too.

Andrew

Grant was already an accomplished massage therapist when I met him and has now been trained by me in Myopractic work.
Massage is the keystone of all hands on therapy and this man’s got it locked in. His easy manner and kind heart will welcome you, and his excellent skills with bodies will blow you away. He has managed to grasp the ‘spirit’ of the work and therefore the effectiveness; the philosophy and practice of grounded wellness emanates from him. He brings his own flavour to the bodywork and I highly recommend that you put yourself in his hands.
His life is a fascinating book of many honest chapters.
A proper wizard.

Navdeep

Grant is a very kind, generous and compassionate soul, with a natural inclination to want to help when he sees a fellow being suffering. I recently had a frightening personal experience. Grant did not hesitate to come forward and offer his healing support. I had lost control of the motor functions in my brain and consequently my body. Grant helped to calm my body and mind down and to give me a break from the state of suffering that i had been experiencing for over a week. I am extremely grateful to Grant for fearlessly offering me that support when i was very much in need. sometimes, we can’t do things by ourselves and need to reach out for help. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Grant if you need to reach out.

I arrived for my session with the clear intention to really let stuff go that was no longer serving me and that had been trapped in my body for too long. Having had bodywork before I understand how it works so I told Grant to not hold back and really go for it.
From the start he was professional and I felt completely comfortable and able to totally relax and let go of all the tensions that I was clinging onto. Grant’s techniques of massage were excellent and he instinctively knew exactly where to go to release trapped emotions.
Unlike other massages where I have just laid down and relaxed this was different. We worked together with Grant guiding my breathing as he gently yet firmly worked through the blockages he encountered in my body which also released the emotions behind them in the process.
I came away feeling taller and lighter. I feel free and almost childlike…happy and relaxed.
It was by far the best bodywork session I have had. Afterwards I felt amazing and 10 days on, it has significantly changed my life. The places anxiety and fear seemed to hook onto are no longer there.
This is incredibly powerful work that Grant is doing and if you really want to transform your life then I couldn’t recommend Grant highly enough.
He is amazing!

Teresa

Grant is very straightforward in his approach, yet has the ability to manifest deep healing. I have seen him on several occasions now, with very different needs (a major one being after a traumatic accident during pregnancy), and without even being able to articulate these needs I have found myself clearly but gently guided to a space in which I am reconnected to myself.
It is bodywork at its most profound, deeply intuitive and his hands seem led to exactly where the pain/trauma is – releasing all layers.
His approach is deeply integrated and integrating and each time I have left with a sense of body and mind in unison in a way which sustains.
Better, deeper and quicker than psychotherapy.

Drew

Last year I was suffering from various shoulder & neck issues, along with some difficulty breathing, primarily from working as an electrician in dusty environments. After treatment from Grant, my back problems have effectively disappeared.
My shoulders and neck now feel so relaxed and flexible I no longer have any problems working on ceiling lights.
I did have some coughing fits during the earlier treatments but as this settled I could feel my lungs clearing out the building dust.
Whilst parts of the treatment can feel uncomfortable (particularly in areas that need it most) the long lasting benefits make it worthwhile.
Grant is a master at what he does!
My neck, back and shoulders feel great now…even clients have noticed the difference in me.
I highly recommend him.
Many thanks Grant…you rock dude!

Have suspended all critical faculties. This must be good…excellent massage, very good hands, just the right pressure…best massage I have received.

Gemma

A treatment with Grant is not like any other massage. He knows how to get to the very heart of emotional and physical pain, and help you release it. His approach is exploratory and took me on a long, deep healing journey. I left feeling so much lighter and freer, as if I’d let go of a lot of emotional blockages and physical discomfort. I look forward to seeing where the next massage with him takes me!

Thembi

I’ve now had 3 treatments from Grant. I’ve had massage/accupuncture/shiatsu and reiki consistently since I was 18- that’s over 30 years now- as I have a curved spine and various other more complicated issues. Grant is simply nothing short of phenomenal. I really can’t understand why he’s so much better than anyone else I’ve experienced. He’s some sort of wizard with special powers.

I have been waiting a while to write this testimony simply due to the fact the whole experience left me lost for words. Five months later I have come to the realisation that the reason for this is, that there are no real words that can adequately describe the Shamanic Healing Pilgrimage and what it offers, you really have to encounter it for yourself. I truly believe everyone who attends this walk will benefit and no experience will be the same.

During my pilgrimage, I found myself finally facing and learning how to surrender to fear, that I had been running from for as long as I can remember. As the week progressed I developed an ability to breathe through emotion and really allow it to pass through me, staying as calm as I possibly could. It is such a brilliant idea to pair shamanic ceremonies with the stunning pilgrimage walk. It really gives you the opportunity to process what is coming up for you and walk with it and through it.

Grant held space beautiful and reacted exactly as needed to all challenges thrown at him during the week. He encouraged me to carry on when I felt afraid and like I no longer could, and I am so grateful that he did. Five months down the line and I feel much more settled and grounded. Grant works from a place of pure love and is extremely talented at what he does. Throughout the week I had huge emotional releases, I processed deep traumas that I didn’t even know I had and went through many more life-changing experiences.

The Shamanic Healing Pilgrimage propelled me forward in my journey of self-healing and conscious awakening at a speed I could just about handle and taught me valuable lessons. Thank you, Grant, for your very special service.
