“To whom it may concern,

18 months ago I was in a racing car accident at Killarney raceway in Cape Town.

From whiplash and impact I had a stiff sore neck,I went for treatments at Vanita,and till this day did not have any problems with it what so ever.

I can recommend Vanita to anybody who is in pain and wants it sorted out,the whole experience speaks of professionalism.

Kind Regards.”

~ Johann Swart

"My husband and I have been treated by Vanita for approximately 5 years. We see her regularly, as it is important not just to treat an acute back or neck problem, but to maintain a healthy back. Both of us have found Vanita to be caring, concerned, supportive and informed. She is always prepared to innovate to improve the way in which she treats her clients and will refer one to another practitioner if she believes that to be in one’s best interests.

Vanita is confident, both in the way in which she approaches us and in her manner of treatment, which gives us confidence in her. One never has the feeling that she is rushing through an appointment. She is generous with her time and gives of her best every time. We highly recommend her for the treatment of any back or neck issues."

~ Jenny & Paddy Wright (March 2016)

"I have suffered from various back issues since my early thirties as a result of my Aussie rules football exploits as a teenager.

I have seen almost every kind of practitioner from Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Osteopaths to surgeons who performed a fusion and later a laminectomy, but it was not until I found Vanita that I found some relief from the constant discomfort.

I have been going for regular treatment since 2010 and I find that if I let it slip for a couple of months the old problems return and it takes a few visits to get back to where we left off.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending Vanita’s alignment techniques, they certainly work for me. "

"My naam is Samantha Erasmus. Ek is 31 jaar oud. Ek het Vanita Drew in 2004 ontmoet, tydens my swangerskap met my seun. Ek het vreeslike rugpyn en spierspsmas ondervind.

Sy het vir my 'n wondewerk se verligting gegee. Die tegniek wat sy gebruik is pynloos en veilig, selfs gedurende swangerskap.

Ek het n paar behandelings gedurend my swangerskap van haar gekry, en selfs die dag voor my keisersnee het ek weer na haar gegaan. My herstel was baie meer spoedig. (Met my vorige keisersnee was ek baie styf en onder pyn na die operasie.)

Ek glo dat “Alignment & Bodywork” regtig vir my werk, veral as ek my twee kleuters rond dra en my rug werklik seer en uit balans is. Werk uiters vir alle rug pyn en as mens se ligaam uit balans is.

Ek was so bly met my gesondheid, dat ek my pa na haar toe gestuur het toe hy by die werk beseer is. Hy kon nie regop loop nie.

Na drie sessies het Vanita se behandeling my 62 jarige pa se probleem heeltemal opgelos. Hy is steeds so verbaas dat hy geen pyn en ongemaklikheid voel nie.

Dankie vir n maklike PIL VRYE oplosing vir pyn!"

~ Samantha Erasmus, Bredasdorp

"Many years ago I had 5 discs removed from my spine and 2 from my neck. I also had an Anterior Spinal fusion with bone from my hip. Whilst I had relief from terrible blackouts and pain, as the years went by I still had bad pain in both areas, as well as stiffness and loss of mobility.

I would never let anyone touch my back and then I heard about Vanita who practiced a type of Pressure Point Alignment technique. I was very hesitant and fearful that she would hurt me and further damage my back.

Vanita began working on me gently as I sat on the edge of the bed because I could not lie down on the treatment bed. At first I felt a little relief, then slowly more and more. It was amazing how much more mobile I became, and I look forward to seeing her every 2 weeks as I get so much relief.

I call her my Guardian Angel and thank her most sincerely for coming to our little town and changing my life with her treatment."

"Diagnosed with a pinched nerve causing severe pain in my right leg, I had difficulty walking and had to use a walking stick.

After several unsuccessful treatments with doctors and living on pain killers, I heard about Vanita Drew from my friend Maureen who had had great success from her treatments.

Dubious but desperate I made an appointment – well after the 1st treatment I already felt relief and it got better with every visit.

At my age – (72) there will always be little aches and pains, but now I am able to go for long walks on the beach (without a walking stick) and do house work and gardening which I thoroughly enjoy.

Maureen and I visit Vanita regularly and feel very fortunate to have her wonderful treatment, so that we can continue doing the things we love without pain and discomfort."

~ Maureen & Isabel Birch, Struisbaai

"In February of 2005 I was involved in an accident that resulted in my being paralysed down my left side.

I went to Tygerberg Hospital and was admitted for an op for a Slipped Disc. During the operation they discovered that the nerve had twisted and that the spinal nerve canal was hampering the nerve action, and the op now became a very serious one.

After 3 weeks in hospital I was brought home and given a 40% chance of ever walking again.

Bed ridden for 3 months, I sought alternative help in the way of Physiotherapy and Massage, however without any success.

I was told by the Editor of the Paradigm newspaper about Vanita who did a Pressure Point Treatment, and I have to say I was skeptical at first.

Vanita told me that I have to be patient because the body’s healing process will take place at its own speed and I must continue treatments.

I visited her regularly, and was really sore after each treatment, however improvement was very evident, and eventually after almost a year, I am 85% improved.

I work on my caravan and car, my wife and I travel around the country and I and do most things I did before."
