Deane has now performed more than 6000 massages since 2004. He discovered his calling to become a massage therapist after enduring a world of pain personally…perhaps you can relate to his story.
A freak workplace accident in 1991 could have spelt disaster for Deane, instead it led hom on a journey of self discovery and healing that uncovered his true calling.
Anyone who has ever found themselves out of action due to injury knows the sense of despair that can take hold when an injury fails to respond to traditional treatments.
This was Deane’s experience when a large plank of wood fell on the back of his neck and knocked him out during his work as an event lighting designer.
“As soon as it happened I knew I was in trouble. I couldn’t move my arms and felt a tingling sensation right down to my fingertips on both sides”, he said.
Deane did initially recover and managed to return and continue the creative work he adored. But things went horribly wrong a few years later when he tore the rotator cuff in his shoulder lifting a piano. Almost immediately the old neck injury flared up as his shoulder lost its ability to function. “I had no movement in my neck what so ever and was unable to lift my right arm. This affected my entire torso and into the lower back.” I was in agony 24 hours a day and relied on heavy pain medication which I became dependent on – quite frankly, I was a physical and emotional wreck.”
For the next six years Deane endured the roundabout of predominately orthodox treantment, medication and pain management clinics before turning to massage to help with relaxation and the stress associated with chronic injury. “To my amazement after two or three sessions, the mobility began to retun and I was able to turn my head. This continue to improve until I had full movement in the neck and the stiffness and pain in my shoulder also subsided. Not only did I feel better physically, but emotionally too.”
Deane recognised the wide benefits of massage and set about learning the most effective techniques for pain reduction and injury management. This combination of personal experienc and professional expertise accompanied by his passion to help others has led to Deane being sought after by pain sufferers and even other massage therapists to treat a wide range of pain conditions, that have often been endured for long periods. “No one should have to endure what I went through, and it’s my mission to see that they don’t”.
