Hi Steve hope you are well!!

I would very much love to come to this conference to receive treatment and advice!!!!

My father is retiring to Pattaya in March, he was planning to fly out on the 28th(freaky).

Would it be possible for me to stay with my father and not the hotel. He tells me its 10mins from his house.

If this would be possible what would the costs be??

kind regards

Lee.

Hi Lee
That would depend on numbers, if we fill the places with people staying at the hotel it wouldn't be possible because I have to commit to a certain number of rooms. Your Dad is obviously a golfer, what hotel does he play out of?

Hi Jo,
You fly into Bangkok or the new airport at least which is a 90 min mini bus trip from the hotel. It is the low season for flights so some good deals should be available.

HI Steve

Actually he`s not a golfer he`s bought a house out there, he just loves the place and obviously his Thai wife ;D

So if I want to definately come I will have to come to the Hotel?

Yes it a great place to retire to Lee, the retirement money goes a lot further than it does in most places. A lot of peole get their pension in the UK, Australia or the US etc and live in Thailand to enjoy a much higher standard of living. ;)

It will be good if you can make the trip so we can sort your back problem out once and for all. I know you have been struggling for a long time with it now so I am sure you are over it as well.

It will be great to meet you if you can make it,
Cheers
Steve

I can make the trip but I could obviously save a lot of money if I stay with my Dad, don`t know if I could afford it otherwise.

I desperately want to come and get this sorted!!!

What are the chances of me staying with my dad and still attending the conference or is it just too early to know??

Yes too early to know Lee but as we got double the people say they were interested than we require I would hope we will get the numbers, so that would make it difficult to accomodate you. I can let you know better in a month or so.

Cheers

Hi,

I'm 15weeks post op - S1/L5 fusion and L4/L5 disc replacement. I'm wondering if this conference is for me. My surgeon has told me that it could be 2yrs before I feel like my young self again. By the time of the conference it will have been 7.5months since my surgery. How do you feel about this Steve? I know you prefer people not to go down the surgery path but no doubt you're aware that there are circumstances where surgery is the only option.
Will we have to sign disclaimers before leaving for the conference or when we get there or do you have insurance? Lol... ;D
Thanks, Jo

Hi Jo, don't worry I won't be doing anything at the conference that will put your body at risk. This is about rebuilding a healthy, supple, balanced body that is how you were meant to be to feel great and be pain free. You would normally never get to that condition with surgery and the usual rehab unless you had a really good holistic therapist treating you and that what you will get at the conference.

I don't dispute the surgery you got might have been necessary as I agree some is, but the body around that probably hasn't been worked on properly yet and if that is the reason your back problem came in the first place, it still needs to be.

We won't be doing any manipulation of your spine just a lot of deep muscle work using massage and acupressure, good eating and exercise both controlled in a room together and in the pool. There will also be a lot of education to help you keep the benefits after you leave us.

The kind of expert care you will get would be very hard to find in most places.

I think the timing would be good for you and yes I do have insurance but don't expect to need to call on it.

I hope we see you there.
Regards
Steve

I certainly hope I can make it. I'm not sure when I'll be able to let you know. How soon will we know if it is definitely going ahead so we can book the cheap flights (the earlier they are booked the cheaper they are)?
Cheers, Jo

Hi Steve:
In the description of the thailand training it stated 2630 AUD for a practitioner and it included the cost of 15 DVD and a textbook.  If we already have those from doing the course is the price minus the cost of the 15 DVD and the textbook?  Do you have any future sites kind of in mind also for similar training?

Hi Jo,
I am sure I will go ahead even if it is with reduced numbers to what I expect. There has been lots of interest though so I am hopeful we will fill it up.

Even if you have booked and paid a deposit you can cancel up until the 15th of January next year without penalty so I guess that is the time I will know for sure about numbers. I wouldn't worry about booking a flight until then as it is low season for Thailand so it won't be expensive anyway.

Regards
Steve

Hi Claire
the cost for non SLM therapists is $4690 and for SLM therapists $2690. You must have read it incorrectly.

Remember you are getting 14 night luxury accomodation plus the 13 days of training including practical and lectures, 2 banquet type dinners, transfers, plus 4 2 hour Thai full body massages plus 2 one hour foot massages so the price is very reasonable, especially if you compared it to other courses that don't teach anywhere near the skill level this will.

I hope we will see you there. ;D

Regards
Steve
