Doctors, Physiotherapists, Practitioners, Osteopaths, Chiropractors have sent hundreds of people to me with, often very severe, BACK problems, as well as those requiring post-operative rehabilitation or, more general remedial work.

For decades I have been committed to the serious study of Anatomy, Physiology, Kinesiology, Mechanics, Biodynamics, Exercise Methodology together with associated Health Considerations. Furthermore during that time I have conducted exhaustive personal Research and Experimentation. This gives me an unrivalled platform from which to successfully offer help with many physical conditions, injuries,abnormalities, irregularities, disabilities.
For me the purpose of any rehabilitation or remedial program is to restore the person to the best possible condition, with marked improvement, in the shortest possible time. The process inevitably involves hard work and sometimes (considerable) discomfort, so we’d better have a few laughs along the way. I aim to make the, sometimes torturous, journey of transformation as productive, as rewarding and as much fun as possible.
It is not (good) enough just to set up an effective exercise program, to give nutritional advice plus direction on the best supplements to aid healing/recovery and to offer information on lifestyle practices which will further assist in (sometimes transformational) improvements. All of that is EASY.
I provide much more. I expect to help mentally, even, if necessary, to provide support emotionally. We must always (try to) maintain POSITIVITY and this is most difficult, of course, when we are experiencing (our greatest) setbacks. I establish HOPE. I set TARGETS and then I make sure that together we start picking off those GOALS. I have NEVER met ANYONE I COULD NOT HELP in some degree. But mostly, WHATEVER the PROBLEM, I can help substantially.

"6 weeks before a scheduled spine operation, I met Tim; who encouraged me to let him have 6 weeks to see if he could use an exercise protocol to prevent the surgery. Needless to say, 11 years on I still haven’t had the surgery. Tim is a unique individual (dare I say eccentric) who has changed my way of thinking not just on back health but also on life itself. For that I will always be grateful"

The management of complicated, chronic back pain is very much a team effort involving clear analysis of the problem, competent treatment, clear advice to the patient, well supervised exercise and compliance and cooperation of the patient. These facts are well known today, but when I first came across Tim Laskey in the mid 1980’s, this was not the case.
As a Chiropractor treating severe and chronic back conditions, finding anyone to safely and sensibly manage a rehabilitation programme was at best a lottery and at worst a disaster, education at this time in this field being rudimentary. I came across Tim through reputation and sent him a few patients with clear instructions as to what to avoid, I soon came to rely on him heavily and over the next 20 years sent him some very delicate and6 difficult rehabilitation cases which he managed with great professionalism and skill. Tim also had the ability to generate great discipline and determination in the patients and many stayed with him long after their back problems were resolved. Leading by example, he inspires confidence.

Russell J Bennett DC FCC, Chiropractor, Illminster, Somerset, 11 March 2011

After suffering with back problems for a number of years, I visited the usual list of specialist’s, Chiropractors, Physiotherapist, Natural Healers the local hospital, Acupuncturist and of course my GP who recommended bucket loads of Voltarol. I was 35 years old, married with two little children, and on one of my trips of see yet another specialist at Atkinson Morley was told that I would either need fusion surgery, or try and get fitter but that he doubted whether I would ever be able to lift the children, play golf or squash again.
Things were pretty bleak, and I was sliding into depression, I just couldn’t see how I was going to get rid of the pain, and during all my visits to specialists and doctors not one of them had been positive.
A short while after my trip to Atkinson Morley Hospital, I was given yet another recommendation to see Russell Bennett at Guildford Chiropractic Centre. Russell’s treatment did help to relieve the pain but he also suggested that I would benefit from strengthening my back and he recommended Tim Laskey, a fitness consultant. My first meeting with Tim was in 1994 for an assessment, he was the first person that I had met who was positive that he could help me, and I left there feeling that perhaps there was an alternative to surgery. After a few weeks on Tim’s exercise programme I started to feel both better physically and mentally, with his constant encouragement, support and guidance.
It’s hard now to think back to those bleak days when every day was a struggle, and without Tim I know that I would have never recovered to be able to enjoy life as I do today. Tim is inspirational, motivational and probably one of the craziest blokes you will ever meet, but I’m so pleased that I did.

Graham Robertson, July 2011

I was around 40 years old when I first met Tim. What a turn around ! My banking career was going very well. My wife had given birth to my three lovely daughters. BUT I was in a terribly bad shape physically and – to a certain extent- mentally. Particularly I had many back problems.
My Physiotherapist told me that the only solution to my physical problems was Tim Laskey. Tim turned out to be my saviour. Tim worked me out twice a week and within a few months my golf handicap dropped from 30+ to 21. I was able to reach skiing summits which I had previously only dreamt of.
My back pain had evaporated!
Why did this happen?
Tim had the knowledge,
Knew how to inspire you.
Through an outstanding intelligence and an outstanding sense of humour he made me persevere.
Now - 18 years on - I am still fit for fight and enjoying my skiing and my life.
For a large part due to Tim, to whom I will be forever grateful.

Claes Moth, Denmark, 3 May 2011

Our son Mark is 6’8” tall and carries a lot of weight. His back pain was such that he could not work and the back experts could do little for him. When he went to Tim all he could do was to pick up his leg to waist level and put it down. In two years Tim not just sorted the problem but made his back so strong that we was lifting 240lbs on Tim’s back extension machine – quite extraordinary. He has had no problems since.

Carl and Sue Tantum, July 2011

I was 37 when I met Tim Laskey on 6th July 1983 at my wife’s suggestion. For the past 10 years I had struggled increasingly with debilitating low back pain accompanied by associated sciatica and compounded by neck problems.
Admittedly I was not fit, but my doctor had more or less written me off, telling me not to perform any exercise that involved bending and effectively prohibiting me from attempting to lift my two young children, cutting the grass or playing tennis! I could swim (gently), but that was about it.
I felt as if I was an old man, yet I was still only in my thirties! What on earth did life hold for me as I aged. It was a profoundly depressing situation.
Over time Tim helped me to change my life. Under his direction and motivational influence I went from being physically relatively weak and genuinely worried about premature old age to becoming, by ANY standards, genuinely strong and robust. So much so, that I was able to take up FULL CONTACT KARATE in my forties eventually being awarded my BLACK BELT when I was 50.
Tim Laskey is an incredibly disciplined, dedicated professional and when it comes to results, the spectacular is commonplace. He has helped so many people to transform their lives. His successes have been, and are, quite amazing.
I’m writing this on 6th July 2011, twenty-eight years to the day that we met. I am fit, strong, robust and for that much of the credit must go to Tim. Thanks for everything.

Dear Tim
Now that I have completed my course of treatment, I felt I should write to you to express my thanks for your efforts on my behalf over the last two years.
As you know, when I first came to you I could hardly walk following my degenerative disc problem, and it was due to your judiciously prescribed exercise regime and continued advice and support that I am now virtually 100% fit.
With thanks again for all you have done for me.
Yours sincerely
Malcolm G. Savage

Being a Dental Surgeon has obviously predisposed me to having a back problem. Constant pain, over a period of five years was very debilitating, and the furthest I had been led towards a cure was vague advice to buy a harder bed.
The dynamism, creativeness and vision of Tim Laskey are evident. After only four-five visits to the gym my back pain lessened, and after a few more visits disappeared.
