Steve Samuel

My name is Steve Samuel and this is my testimony for Doug Maynard from Lifestyles Neuromuscular Massage!

I originally came to Doug via a recommendation from my gym instructor (Cindy) at West Wave Aquatic Centre.

I was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease 5 years previously, this disorder "at worst" can be fatal & cause atrophy of muscle (wasting away) which may spread to eventually affect your respiratory system & halt your breathing altogether the rest is self-explanatory!!! After years of going through treatments of intravenous infusions every 2 - 3 weeks (much like Dialysis) my body was severely weakened through lack of muscle tone and loss of activity. Years of miss diagnosis didn't help my situation until finally one doctor did what was necessary to come to the correct conclusion.
