Speaker Testimonials

I was moved to take immediate action to become happier and healthier

“John and Judy Hinwood with great expertise and finesse led us on an adventure through our own stress experience and out into a realistic optimistic and accepting state. Through a set of eloquent tools and strategies and with great compassion, understanding and respect for every member of the group, Judy, John and their support team guided us in learning how to dissolve the stress and move to completely different states where we were solid, free of the weight from the past, appreciative of what we actually had and open to new things happening in our lives. The title ‘Stress to Strength Experience’ really fits what is was like to be on this workshop! And the ending- WOW, that is worth the wait! I can’t STRESS this enough-do yourself a favour- Attend this workshop.”

Stress is Good – When it is Managed!

“Drs John and Judy Hinwood are well-placed to provide primary intervention in stress management to reduce the demand for expensive tertiary ‘repair’ by providing highly-crafted learning at the primary and secondary stages. The underlying concept is that when a person is provided with tools to understand and manage the stressors in their environment, then not only will their health and productivity increase, but it will be followed by significant reduction in the need for repair services. It is fair to conclude I am impressed. After experiencing the weekend training, I would have no hesitation, were I still active in chiropractic practice as opposed to now being retired, to follow this pathway and add a huge amount of richness to my skills base”

My stress levels plummeted and I emerged after the two days happier and more centred than I have in years.”
