Re: Stumbled across this whilst researching...

I think I remember reading somewhere that Mr Harrison did her op - or did I imagine that? Hard to tell with me sometimes :p

Re: Has anyone heard of Scenar therapy

Hi Rod/Ed :welcome2:

I vaguely remember seeing your name over on NSF (i've only ever posted there a couple of times, mostly just 'lurked'). I think your username over there is justified given the...
