"A block of wood! Are you kidding me?!"
Those were Barry's first words when we found Block Therapy and he was told it would fix his back pain. Once he tried it, a lifetime of struggling with back pain, mobility issues, negativity and fear, melted away using that piece of wood! Here is his story:
"I’m a PGA of Canada Golf Professional who suffered most of my adult life with daily pain and mobility issues. All from a lifetime of traumas, sports injuries, lifestyle and general repetitive golf motion strain, which culminated in the classic golfer lumbar L5-S1 disk herniation. All the years prior to that injury, no one could solve or explain my pain and mobility issues. I was told it was just stiffness, genetics, injury, and plain old getting old - general mechanical dysfunction, whatever that is. It kept getting worse, I had constant sciatic pain. Sitting, standing, walking, resting, sleeping, general life, was painful - never mind trying to play golf! The continual lower back compression and pain were wearing me out. I was aging fast and putting on weight and carrying around a lot of negative emotion and fear. All the physical therapies and training I did - from chiropractic, physiotherapy, yoga, sports training and exercise provided temporary relief but nothing lasting ... until Block Therapy.
Fast forward a year. My daily pain is gone and I am without medication of any kind. I feel and look 20 years younger, and I’m 25 pounds lighter! I am able to live relatively pain free now, and all that negative baggage and fear I carried around for years has been released through the help of Block Therapy. None of this was an overnight sensation, but results began to happen very quickly, and the block is now part of my daily living. It compliments everything I do. It just takes a few minutes every day to change your life forever, amazing! Because of Deanna Hansen and her Block Therapy practice, I’m relatively pain free and able to live a fit, healthy, positive life today. I couldn’t have done that before. I’m so grateful for that fateful day I gave that block of wood a try. A block of wood? Are you kidding me? Best thing I ever did!"
What is Block Therapy and How Will it Help My Golf?
Block Therapy is a self-care bodywork practice that is a therapy, exercise and meditation all in one. It was founded by Deanna Hansen, an athletic therapist from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Block Therapy uses a therapeutic wooden tool called the "block buddy" to release compressed tissue and adhesions in your body all the way to the bone. The pressure of the block on the body combined with diaphragmatic breathing brings increased blood and oxygen into the area warming the connective tissue and melting the powerful seal between the layers of unhealthy restrictions.

Here's What Our Golfing Clients are Saying about Block Therapy...
“After beginning Block Therapy I very soon noticed significant results in my golf game. It increased my flexibility, reduced the pain in my knees and gave me more energy. I started hitting it longer and straighter and at my age that’s a huge bonus! I’ve continued with the program and reap the benefits in my daily activities.”
“As soon as I got the program, I began all the techniques for breathing, posture and fascia release for my golf. My body was stretching and moving much more freely, I felt great! Just the start of more good things to come. I feel very different in a very good way. This is the answer I was looking for!
"Going through Tammy's block therapy program for my golf was one of the best experiences I have had. Before I felt sluggish, tired, with chronic right shoulder pain. After one session with the block, I felt energetic, flexible and my pain was greatly reduced, I could really turn better in my swing! It was amazing!"
