In the 20+ years after a rotator cuff injury, I’d pretty much resigned myself to a shoulder that was weak, atrophied and gave me times of significant pain especially when bumped or while sleeping.
My only wish was less pain. Then I got Frozen Shoulder and I went to see an Orthopaedic surgeon who recommended steroid injections, and to the ultrasound where the tech said to get ready for surgery.
Instead, luckily, I found Kerry.
I went to a couple months of treatments. Now over 9 months later my shoulder hasn’t been better. I am kayaking, going to yoga, and my shoulder muscles have returned. To say I’m thrilled is an understatement.
Thanks Kerry for the wonderful job you have done with me.
Kerry came highly recommended to me so I had to try him out. I have been seeing him for a head injury and back injuries and he has holistically healed me from the inside out.
He uses many different techniques and always tries different things for each session.
I can’t thank you enough for the amazing conversations and experiences I’ve had in our sessions. Without your help, I wouldn’t have been where I am today.
I feel amazing and filled with health and Vitality! Thank YOU!!!
I have had amazing results from Kerry’s treatments. I’ve had an accident with my head and neck twenty years ago. Without knowing this, it was the reason for my recurring migraines. I forgot completely about the accident and I did not tell Kerry about my migraine problem. Kerry located the problem very quickly and he asked if had an accident with my head or neck(!). After just one treatment I had no longer the recurring migraines. Kerry also successfully treated another chronic condition that I struggled with for years. He fixed it in one treatment!
At first, I was not familiar with these kinds of treatments and it was all very new to me. But by experiencing it, it made me see how incredibly powerful Kerry’s work with energy in the body is. I am definitely going to see Kerry again for treatment.
Kerry’s goal is always to get you back on your feet as soon as possible.
On both occasions when Kerry treated me for sport injuries, I was out and about again after only couple of visits. Humble, responsible and skillful, I cannot recommend Kerry enough.

Centering & Grounding Workshop with Kerry Castell-Spence, Saturday 13th April 2013, Auckland
I have been a student of yoga for many years and also received teachings from a spiritual master for over 14 years (meditation & Dzogchen) attending a number of retreats; additionally, I have trained as a massage practitioner & in other therapeutic modalities. I currently work in a very busy & often stressful corporate role within marketing, events/administration.
I found Kerry’s workshop to be thoroughly practical, logical & unpretentious.
He delivered this two-hour workshop with an ease and clarity which I felt made everyone feel engaged and comfortable.
Personally, I felt immediate benefits and relevant advice and ‘new information’ that will benefit my daily life and practices. Thank you kindly! I really look forward to future workshops :0)

I just thought I would let you know that today I tried your Level 1 stretch routine. It was Japan day and I wanted something to open me up and relax me properly before I went to the demonstration. Worked really well. Helped my nerves too. Thank you so much!
I had a sore shoulder, elbow, and arm for a number of months. I eventually saw a chiropractor who manipulated me along with using acupuncture. After around six weeks I was still not getting any relief and stopped treatment.
My doctor suggested that my elbow was ‘tennis elbow’ and suggested limiting use. He had no answer for my other aches and pains. Then I remembered that a business associate who had a similar ongoing shoulder issue had seen someone who they thought worked miracles. I asked them for details and days later was in seeing Kerry.
Initially I thought that Kerry’s treatment was kind of strange. I couldn’t believe that something so gentle could actually be helping, but after the very first treatment I did notice a positive change.
I kept seeing Kerry for a number of weeks and before long my shoulder, elbow and arm were back to normal.
I can’t thank Kerry enough for his help, nor can I recommend him enough to others that may feel let down by conventional medicine.
Thank you Kerry!

I’m always impressed with the way Kerry’s treatments work on not just joints or muscles, but also other elements which affect the healing process, mind, lifestyle, posture.
He’s a no-nonsense sort of guy, who expects me to take an active part in my own recovery. Highly recommended.
Over Christmas I had 2 sessions with Kerry, and I feel better than I have in years.
I would recommend his Therapy to anyone that has had stress or any pain in their lives.
He is amazing and I will be going to him again.
Thanks so Much
I am grateful to Kerry for helping me to identify and resolve obstructions to my growth and well-being on multiple levels.
He has assisted me in reaching a point of balance and health I have not experienced since I was a child.
This has enabled me to accelerate my progress towards my full potential with a greater sense of clarity of who I am and where I am going.
It’s true! I thought that I would be spending the rest of my life in pain with bad knees, but after being recommended to see Kerry, he was able to relieve what countless physiotherapists had not.
He has a magic way of finding what the problem is really about and helping your body let go of old injuries as well as new ones.
Highly recommended for all kinds of body issues, injuries, strains etc, as well digestive and lung problems. He is now my number one go to man for health and healing!
A heartfelt testimonial from a student, patient and friend.
I met Kerry at one of his Somatic Restoration workshops in April of last year. That was for me a truly auspicious meeting and I remain immensely grateful for it.
Kerry’s unwinding manual therapeutic treatments and his classes in Chi Gong / Somatic Restoration exercises are helping me spiritually, physically and emotionally. I do very very highly recommend him.
I personally have many years’ experience in Yoga, Nursing, and as a massage therapist. From these fields of experience, I had developed a fairly keen inner felt sense for the body. I thought I was progressing ok then but, now, with Kerry’s teaching, I am feeling much more confident and safe in all the body work I do.
Especially in my daily Yoga practice (20 years now), I am enjoying a softer approach with a clear understanding of exactly how not to force elastic boundaries. I do believe that Yoga practised too strongly and without a thorough understanding of how to read the boundary pressures accurately, may possibly lead to injury.
I feel safe now in my Yoga practice. Also, I am progressing further with less effort. Especially the spiralling movements taught by Kerry in the Somatic Restoration classes, I am enjoying very much. I now add the spiralling into the Yoga asanas and it is sheer magic!!!
There’s now much more the feeling of water gently flowing, circling and cleansing.
The soft overcomes the hard (Tao).
If I had my wish it would be that every Yogi should have the opportunity to learn how not to force the body’s elastic boundaries.
Overall I think it is truly wise to invest some real effort in understanding ourselves and our bodies. In this regard, Kerry is an outstanding and excellent teacher and healing practitioner. I thank him with my whole heart.
Listening to your body and getting the blocks to open is what Kerry teaches us how to do for ourselves!!!
I am almost 60 years old now and yet my body is still becoming more supple.
Even my long time scoliosis is almost gone!!!
I have been seeing Kerry regularly for over a year now.
He is without a doubt one of the most skilled and sensitive practitioners I have received treatment from.
His blend of specialist understanding of the body combined with intuitive awareness skills has facilitated deep and permanent change in my body.
For me, Kerry’s approach and philosophy is supportive and nourishing at physical, emotional and energetic levels.
As a dancer and body worker, I trust my body in the hands of Kerry to work consciously with any imbalances in my mind/body connection.
