Our Guest Speaker was Leigh Ray owner of Jaw Physio. We really enjoyed and appreciated this lively and enlightening talk and gleaned some very useful tools to help us with our well being and the pain management of our jaw, neck and head problems.
Leigh demonstrated her treatment technique on a member which was very gentle and straight forward, certainly most worthwhile trying for any neck, head or jaw problems. More on this in the November newsletter.

Our warmest thanks to Dr Finch for sharing his precious afternoon with us and a wonderfully informative talk. It was so interesting to learn all about Neuromodulation and how it is proving to be a most effective means of easing the pain of post herpetic neuralgia.
Our heartfelt Congratulations on a brilliant career of dedicated work and deep appreciation for the valuable contribution of marvellous research.
Dr Finch will be retiring from the operating theatre after August but will still be available to help patients as a Consultant.
Our best wishes for a happy future, and even though we know he will still be working to keep us pain free we hope Dr Finch can enjoy some well earned fun and relaxation.
