"Finding a practitioner with this kind of skill and belief is a rare treasure. He expects you to work hard but he also offers you a way to continually achieve, as well as balance and grow."

For quite a long time I searched someone who approached health, fitness and wellbeing with both a holistic frame and a high level of expertise and competence. I had found a gym I enjoyed and was eating and living in accordance with health practices I valued, but I needed someone who could take me beyond what I knew and help me heal some longstanding injuries, as well as the impact of a couple of surgeries and a long history of nutritional depletion. My motivation was very high but so were my standards, and I struggled to find someone I could trust with these complex and important aspects of my health.

Rhett quickly earned my trust, and deservedly so. His initial assessment was the most comprehensive I’d ever experienced. He was interested in most every aspect of my life, from birth to the present, and wove together a picture that could handle the unique subtleties of my experience so that our course of action could be tailored to my needs. Through Rhett I not only learned tools and practices to help rehabilitate the injuries, but also things I could employ daily to both sustain and improve my overall vitality, strength, movement and abilities.

I think what I value most is that Rhett takes both a long view and an immediate one. He was able to help me with my presenting problems as well as set me up for a lifetime of health. Never did I feel like what I was learning was just for now. Everything was applicable to me in the moment as well as me when I’m 95. In fact, there was always stated room for my abilities to improve as I age. Finding a practitioner with this kind of skill and belief is a rare treasure. He expects you to work hard but he also offers you a way to continually achieve, as well as balance and grow.

My previous experience with others suggests that health practitioners tend to focus either on one symptom and specialise in it, or focus solely on generalist symptoms or issues like weight or energy or overall fitness. I found that Rhett was not distracted by some of these larger concerns and was able to get underneath to the functional and foundational variables that were personal to me. Sometimes this meant embracing paradox and at other times it meant diverting down an unexpected path. For me, this is a kind of wisdom that is to be cherished.

Because Rhett’s practice is situated in the same building as where the Centre houses yoga, I was also exposed to a form of yoga I hadn’t before experienced. Call it luck or fate or karma or whatever, but this has been a huge added blessing in my life and has allowed me to engage in a full mind-body-spirit programme that benefits me daily.  Rhett has built a community that sustains health and I feel very grateful to be a part of that.
