I just wanted to say how excited I am about the Mulligan techniques! I thought the course was amazing & every willing & able person that''s crossed my path has been subject to my NAGs & SNAGs (husband, colleague, secretary etc). And I''ve willed every patient that comes in to have an upper quarter problem I can treat with a Mulligan technique! I really look forward to the lower quarter course & hope you''ll be bringing it Durban in the not too distant future.
Thanks for being a brilliant presenter & getting me so excited about this concept! I''m officially a Mulligan convert! :)

Awesome - thank you!

I really enjoyed the course and felt that Geoff made it easy to understand and apply. I felt confident enough to start applying the techniques straight away and it gets easier the more you do it. He was a very good lecturer and the course content was a great help. Thank you for the follow up info, I would love to attend the UQ course next year.

Thank you so much Craig!! The course was lekker and very informative. Please let me know for the courses in Gauteng. Im no longer in kzn. Cheers!!!!enjoy the rest of your year!!

I thought that the course structure was very good. What I liked from the UQ course but wasn’t repeated this time was the section on problem-solving. It gives you a practical insight into when a specific technique may be helpful when faced with a patient. Other than that it was excellent! All the best.

Once again thanks for organising Geoff for us. It was great! Many thanks.

First I want to say thanks a lot for bringing Geoff to PE! I enjoyed the course Very much and for a newly qualified "stupid" physio it meant a lot. I learned a great deal. Me and my mon (sinkeke) made a good team. Geoff is very good in presenting courses. Too bad you had to leave early. I still wanted to chat to you about you working for the proteas. Since i've decided to become a physio it has always been 1 of my dreams. Unfortunately I cant make your CPT course. Sure it will be good. Hope too year about next years courses.

Thank you for your great organizational skills, much appreciated!! Really enjoyed Geoff! He is most proffesional and good looking! I really enjoyed his sense of humour. He is execellent at what he does and very good teacher of what he does! This course was really worth it. I know I will be able to use just about every technique he taught and I know that it works. I am very grateful to say that the tool that i had in my toolbox has become more useful and more effective! This is definitely a course to recommend. Thank you Geoff.

Great course. I liked Geoff's laid back lecturing style, though still getting the message across. Obviously the practical orientation of the course was great. Best of all, applying the techniques in practice on Monday showed immediate results. I'll be back when the upper quarter course comes around!

Thanks for a well organised Mulligan course. Mike and I found the course to be extremely informative and enjoyed the hands on approach which always enables the slow brain to remember the techniques taught ,and be able to go home with confidence. My patients think I am awesome when the pain goes with a simple touch. I get excited every time this happens and the patients tell others to come for Physio. Thanks again for the delicious food. Regards.
