I have been treated by osteopaths all my life. I am a 71 year old woman. Dr Ashburner has been successfully managing my back problems since I returned to South Africa - about 5 years ago. But what I didn’t realise, is that he does more than just back treatments. I was unable to play tennis because of my frozen, extremely painful shoulder and I mentioned this to him while I was having back treatment.
The very first time I heard of osteopathy was through my mom. She was sitting at a doctor’s waiting room and was browsing through a random magazine. She was captured by a title that says “Osteopathy and Conception”. This showed an osteopath (Dr Guy)doing a treatment similar to a chiropractor and a physiotherapist. However, the name osteopath suggested to her that there was more to be offered. My mom was convinced this is what I needed and will yield results.
For as long as I can remember I’ve suffered with bad posture, lower back pain and very stiff shoulders that caused headaches. Over the years I’ve tried everything with little to no effect. I was only looking for relief until I accidentally discovered Guy Ashburner. This was a true live changer. I’ve only been seeing him for 2 months. Since the first time I saw him I haven’t experienced any backpain.
Dr Ashburner has helped me with various types of ailments regarding pain in my body - from diagnosing my gallstones - helping control my high blood pressure (with no medication) and just various day to day wear and tear of the body. If you are looking for a physiotherapist or a chiropractor, I highly recommend Dr Guy Ashburner.

I have been to Guy for two different issues. I had frozen shoulder which was very debilitating, I was told by an orthopaedic surgeon that there was nothing that could be done and that it would last for 2 years. Guy was able to increase my mobility by 30% after the first visit and each visit thereafter improved my mobility until I regained normal use of my arm. I have also had cranial osteopathy and although I don’t have a comprehensive understanding of this technique, it has given me incredible relief from an emotional trauma.
After 10 years of chronic pain and having exhausted all types of medical practitioners and chronic pain meds, it has taken just 2 months of visits to Guy to get me to a very place. A few more and I’ll be ready to take on the world again! Thank you Guy for giving me chance to see the light at the end of a dark tunnel. Fyrne Goveia
I haven’t taken antibiotics for 4 years now that I see Dr Ashburner for sinus and other problems. It feels so good to fix issues without having to take medicine.

I am 59 years of age. I would like to thank Guy Ashburner for helping my body return to a state of pain free functioning in a short series of 5 sessions. A few months ago I was about to embark on a rigorous physical and mental journey in a rural area for a few months …….. my mind was ready, but my body was not. A very active childhood growing with mostly boys, and having to “keep up” to belong.
I had been suffering with a very loud humming and ringing in my head since early childhood. I had tried various doctors and specialists but no one was able to help me. To compound these issues I developed anxiety as a result of the loud humming. My stress levels have reduced by 80% since seeing Dr Ashburner and I no longer feel anxious as a result of the constant hum as it has all but gone.
I have been competing as a professional Dressage rider for over 15 years and have represented WC province on several occasions. I ride an estimate of 5 to 7 horses every day and for years I have been having problems with tightness and stiffness through my back and neck. In the past I had been for regular physio as well as massages but after a few days my body would tighten up again and it affected my entire posture as well as the aids (signals) that I would then pass onto the horse.
