My daughter Laura was born at 29 weeks (d.o.b. 24. 07. 84.) she suffered respiratory distress syndrome which led to her diagnosis of cerebral palsy spastic quadriplegia.
Prior to G-Therapy we had tried non invasive therapies which were physiotherapy, occupational therapy, Conductive Education, the David Hart orthotic walker, HBOT and various inflatable and rigid splints.
I decided to try G-Therapy for Laura not really thinking I would notice any change in her. Laura was just about entering her teens years.
Laura's changes on G-Therapy appeared to be cognitive, which I had not expected at all, since Laura could read and talk. These changes since she first took G-Therapy have led to slow, but steady physical progress being observed. Changes in both gross and fine motor control were noticed. We also had some excellent progress with her vision and there was a dramatic increase in how much Laura wanted to drink. Her tongue control was one of the early changes noticed. This led to an improvement in her swallowing and more power in her speech, which though good had been weak.
Her startle reflex also diminished very quickly, and I felt this helped with her motor control. Laura began to side sit on her own for the first time in her life both to the left and the right, she did this leaning on chairs and holding wall bars. She began to crawl up on her hands and knees, a reciprocal crawl that she had never done previously. This lasted a long while 5/6 years. Laura also began to roll over much more in her bed, she had found that extremely difficult and had rarely done it before G-Therapy.
I felt lucky that the first day that my daughter took G-Therapy she was able to inform me that she felt a slight tingle/ache on the left side of her head.(it was intermittent and only lasted the first day). This same day she picked up a glass of orange juice with her right hand for the very first time. Naturally I queried this with Dr.Oswal, his reply was astounding to me, he said, "neurotransmitters started to work". It was my understanding that the left side of the brain might help the right side of the body and Laura's right side was the most affected by her cerebral palsy.
I kept Laura steadily on G-Therapy through out her teen years. Then after giving her some gaps, I noticed her progress continued, obviously from the initial impetus that the G-Therapy had given to her neurotransmission.
Laura's changes have been slow, but absolutely steady and recently in her Kaye-walker she is taking much more weight on the right side of her body. She will regularly test her own balance taking her hand off the Kaye-walker or the wall bars. Laura experiences both tired and lively days.
Laura can feel all that is happening to her body and constantly tells me why she must do a certain movement. There was also an excellent improvement in her recent summer holiday/vacation where Laura has been making much more use of her arms on the side of the swimming pool.
Laura has had no bad effects from G-Therapy, but we have had difficult days she tells me which is due to something changing in her body. This has always calmed down again and there has been a regular pattern noticed and further progress may soon be seen again.
Laura has had no surgeries. Progress observed continues to give both Laura and myself hope and we both owe this to Dr. Oswal.

Zoe started on G Therapy just before her 13th birthday. Prior to this she had number of years contact with the pets institute in Budapest and Sheffield along with the usual NHS services. She currently attends for Sessions at Bobath Scotland where I believe the exercise programme is complemented by the use of G Therapy.
The changes noticed in Zoe on the Therapy have been suite ones perhaps due to the fact she was quite old and well developed when we began starting on it. There have been numerous ‘sensations’ in her limb and cracks in the affected joints e.g. Ankles, knees, elbows and even lips, sometimes a feeling of warmth eventually, a ‘crack’ then some relief of the feeling of pressure she has experienced in the joint. Noticeably, there has been a change in her left foot which has previously been twisted inwards causing her to walk on the outside tip of that foot, It is now easier for her to recognise when this foot is twisted and to straighten it although still quite difficult in the standing position.
She is also more aware of general posture in sitting and standing and will try to correct this.
On a occasion earlier this year Zoe experienced a lot of heat in her left hip then finally after some hours a loud crack , then as she was in bed by now and sleeps on her tummy, she found she could get the hip down to touch the bed and had never been able to do this before. This improvement remains.
The pressures of a full time education Zoe is currently at standard grade level and travelling 40 miles by bus twice a day to and fro from school mean that we can’t spend as much time as we might on physio etc. However Zoe enjoys the social aspects of school and is hoping to achieve 5 ‘O’ grades next year in English, Maths, French, Biology and Geography.
She is a very happy young lady and feels that G Therapy has made a difference to her life. She has definitely not deteriorated since taking it and is managing to keep mobile and a good posture when normally in teenage years with her condition these would deteriorate.
Zoe’s writing and numeracy (always a huge challenge!) have improved over this period and it is possible that G Therapy has helped here too.
