Lora Storey

2017 Australian 800m National Champion
2017 IAAF World Relay Championships Bronze Medalist (4x800m)
2017 IAAF World Championships Representative (London)

After 6 months of battling continues Achilles and Bursitis issues combined with  a diagnosis of Psoriatic Arthritis and high levels of training as an elite 800m runner I came to see Phil with the hope of being able to return to my regular training load and competition after being sidelined with this injury.

After the first treatment I could not believe the improvement in just my day to day activities on my foot and the reduction in inflammation.
Four treatments later I am able to successfully complete the first phase of my rehabilitation and return to running program, something I have tried unsuccessfully to do three times in the last six months.

Thank you Phil!

“I have struggled with back pain in my thoracic spine especially during rotation and extension for about 9 months, affecting my technique and ability to train and compete. Phil’s treatment provided extended periods of pain release and after the very first appointment I noticed a massive difference the very next time I got into the pool for training.”

World champion beach volleyballer … Olympic Bronze Medallist, Atlanta 1996, Olympic Gold Medallist, Sydney 2000, 4th in Athens, 2004…

I had a dark cloud over me in my preparation for Athens 2004, When I suffered a bad injury.As I live and train in Brisbane, QLD – I had consulted some of the best practitioners and therapists in the country and still I could not overcome my pain and injury.

After I flew to Sydney and was introduced to Phill, he explained quite simply to me that I had developed a very bad imbalance in my body, caused from the repetitive nature of my sport. As a result of the acupressure and deep tissue therapy that Phill specialises in, he was able to balance my body and relieve my pain in just one treatment and put me back in the game!! I was absolutely amazed at the lasting affects that this treatment gave me!!

“You are simply the best Phill, thanks for your magic hands.”

Love Nat …

Glen Boss

Australia’s No.1 Group 1 Jockey – Winner of 3 Melbourne Cups / Cox Plate / Golden Slipper and numerous other Group 1 Races…

I had a bad fall from a horse and landed heavily on my left buttocks and really hurt my back. It caused a large haematoma which I had to have drained by a doctor.

As time went on my back and hip pain became extremely bad to the point where I was having to take pain killers and anti inflammatory’s to ride and my form had really dropped as a result of this problem.

I was having regular treatment from various different reputable therapists but none of them seemed to be able to take away my pain.

A friend of mine referred me to Phillip Hanney for treatment and told me “if he can’t fix you than no one can !”

Phill explained to me that I had a lot of scar tissue built up in the hip and the gluteus muscles which was affecting my lower back and that my left leg was a lot shorter than my right leg as a result of all of this. He told me that it was going to hurt as it was so bad and he was not wrong!!

I had just three treatments that were very painful and he told me I couldn’t do anything for 3 days after each one. Three or four days after my third treatment my pain had completely gone and has never returned.

Phill got me back on the track just in time for the Spring Carnival in 2005 and I went on to win The Cox Plate and the Melbourne Cup for the third consecutive year.

I can not thank Phill Hanney enough for his efforts as I could not have done it the way my back was.

Phill, Your hands have kept me on the Track !! Thanks Mate,

Being an Olympic swimmer I’ve had the opportunity to work with many different therapists. Phill’s healing hands certainly rank his myotherapy techniques at the very highest of treatments I’ve ever received. I’ve left each appointment feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and certainly much more relaxed and recovered!

Phill has helped me get through stressful periods such as moving house, whilst still maintaining top physical form for training!

Thanks Phill!

ANB Short Class Figure Australian Champion 2003, NPFC/IFBB Ms Figure NSW 2003, NPFC/IFBB Runner up Ms Figure Australia 2003, NPFC/IFBB Runner up Ms Figure Australasia 2004

I had developed an injury in my right elbow (Epicondylitis) caused by repetitive movement in that area over a long period of time. I received treatments from Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and GP’s over a five month period and none of these seemed to work. I was advised by a GP that cortisone was the only answer. I was referred to Phill by a friend and after the first treatment noticed a huge improvement. Six weeks later I am now back at the gym in full training mode.

I don’t know how I could ever thank Phill enough for what he has done for me. I will continue with the Myotherapy Treatments on an ongoing basis for my overall wellbeing.

Paul Simpkins

National Rugby League Referee

In April 2004 whilst refereeing a game of rugby league I was Involved in an incident that resulted in my lower back colliding with the goal post. As a result of this collision I suffered a dislocated Coccyx and other lower back pain. I was unable to get out of a chair and walk without stretching my back first. At this stage the injury threatened the remainder of the season for me.

The lower back symptoms persisted for some time despite receiving treatment from a number of reputable therapists. After speaking to some friends about my injury, they recommended Phill Hanney.

After my first appointment with Phil I noticed a remarkable improvement in my back. This was followed by further treatment over the next three weeks, by which time I felt no side effects from my injury.

I am so impressed by the treatment Phill Hanney offers that I intend to engage his services regularly in future Rugby League seasons to assist me in injury prevention.

I appreciated the treatment and results Phill provided me and have no hesitation in recommending his professional services to any person seeking relief from pain and injury.

Severe Narrowing of C5/6 Disc- Large Disc Herniation of C6/7- Displacement of Spinal Cord…

I had excruciating pain in my neck and all the way down my right arm into my fingers and I could not turn my head at all. I had never experienced such pain before in my life.

I was lifting weights in the gym, when I felt something in my neck go out and I felt the pain immediately, I knew I was in trouble. I was taken to hospital and had C.T. scans done of my cervical spine which showed large disc herniation of C6/7 – severe narrowing of C5/6 disc and displacement of spinal cord .I was referred to a surgeon straight away and he told me that I had to have this operated on immediately but he wanted to have an M.R.I. scan done first.

I was very scared of the thought of a neck operation and I didn’t know what to do. My friend told me to get a second opinion from Phill Hanney and he told me about Scenar Therapy that he did.

I commenced Scenar therapy with Phill and within the first treatment the pain and pressure in my neck and arm had reduced a great deal and the mobility in my neck was back to 100%. I had two more treatments and the pain and pressure in my neck and arm had completely gone!!

I had the M.R.I. scan done after the 3rd treatment and the results of the M.R.I. compared to the C.T. scan were amazing. It showed that the severe narrowing of the C5/6 disc had reduced to a slight narrowing. The large disc herniation of C6/7 had reduced to a small protrusion and no longer causing any displacement of the spinal cord.

I had 3 more treatments and I felt great- no pain or stiffness at all.

I went back to see the surgeon and he viewed the two scans. He didn’t really say much at all except that he wouldn’t have to operate on my neck anymore and that he didn’t need to see me again unless the symptoms returned.

They never did return and I can not thank Phill Hanney and his Scenar Therapy enough for taking my pain away and saving me from surgery.

Helen Baramilis

Viral Arthritis

I was diagnosed with viral arthritis 8 years ago as a result of Helicobacter. It effected my neck, shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists and hands that caused terrible constant pain. In fact I had to sell my hairdressing business and stop work.

I had seen doctors, physiotherapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, naturopaths and massage therapists but nothing seemed to help at all or at best only some relief for a day or so.

I was referred to Phillip Hanney by my cousin that had seen Phill for Scenar Therapy for his bulged discs in his back and told me that it was great! I commenced Scenar Therapy with Phill and noticed a big difference immediately. I had four treatments and all the pain had stopped.

I went overseas after that for one month and I still had no pain at all .Which was fantastic as I had never gone so long before without pain. I had a number of treatments when I returned and not only am I pain free but I have also a great deal of energy and I have recently returned to work..

I am so pleased with results of Scenar Therapy that I would refer Phillip Hanney to anyone…

Thank you so much Phill,
From Helen.

Lisa Farrugia

Sciatic Pain

I had recently experienced the worst pain I had ever felt before, with pain in the lower back and effecting the sciatic nerve which was shooting down the left buttocks and the entire left leg.

I could not walk or straighten my back and my pelvis was all twisted. My partner made an appointment with Phill Hanney who he see’s for his Myotherapy Massage Treatment. He had to take me as I was in so much pain I could not drive.

When they eventually got me up on the table, Phill said that he would have to treat me with the Scenar because the pain was so acute and the fact I’d never had a massage before.

Phill asked me if I’d had any neck pain prior to the sciatic pain and I told him I had bad neck pain only 3 days before but that had totally gone now. Phill started to work on a point in my neck and by the time he had finished, which was less than 15 minutes. The pain in my lower back, the heaviness and the twist in my pelvis and the pain down my left leg was gone !! He then asked me to get off the table and walk around which to my total amazement I did. I could walk straight, I had absolutely no pain anywhere and I could bend over and touch my toes!!

Both myself and my partner agreed that we had witnessed a miracle that day which was about six months ago now and I did not need any more treatment.

If you suffer with sciatic pain you must get in touch with Phillip Hanney.

Carly Middleton 

Traumatic Brain Injury

In 2003 I was involved in a car accident in the United States, in which I broke my orbital and cheek bone and had four cerebral haemorrhages, resulting in Traumatic Brain Injury.

Following the accident I suffered from severe and relentless headaches everyday, lack of concentration, short-term memory loss, an inability to process information and insomnia. I was on high levels of medication all of which were ineffective.

I tried a number of different treatments and was under the care of a Neurologist, but no one seemed to have a solution and my headaches were becoming more severe.

I was then recommended to Phill Hanney. Upon commencing treatment with Phill, he informed me that my energy levels were extremely low and explained how SCENAR therapy would work. Following the first treatment , I noticed a remarkable improvement. Not only were my headaches less frequent but I was now sleeping. After just two more treatments with Phill, I now feel absolutely great. I no longer have headaches, feel fit and healthy, I am sleeping well and all medication has ceased.

I am amazed and delighted with the results of Phill’s SCENAR therapy treatment and would highly recommend this treatment to anyone.

“Thank you so much Phill.”

Daniel Collier

Ankylosing Spondylitis (progressive fusing of spine & hips)

I have suffered from chronic pain for a number of years, the effect on my life has been devastating, at it’s worst I couldn’t sleep more than three hours in a row. I have seen many doctors and have been referred to physiotherapists, chiropractors, muscular-skeletal specialists and a rheumatologist. I have had x-rays, CT scans and bone scans. Blood tests suggesting Ankylosing Spondylitis. Much of the treatment prescribed to me actually made things worse and the only thing all the doctors could agree on was I needed anti-inflammatories, possibly for the rest of my life !!

I had been seeing Phill Hanney for some time as I found temporary relief in his deep tissue massage therapy, when Phill told me of his electronic energy healing device (SCENAR), I was a little skeptical, but after being told there was no cure for my pain by doctors, just ongoing treatment of symptomatic relief, I was prepared to try anything.

The results Phill has achieved have been outstanding, beyond anything I could have imagined. If I had not experienced it for myself, I would not believe it could be true. After two treatments with the SCENAR, I stopped taking the anti-inflammatories without any serious pain, and started to get back into gentle exercise. Now after sixteen treatments with SCENAR, I lead a normal pain free lifestyle, almost the same as before the pain started, I can even surf again !!!

I still don’t know why things went wrong in my body but now I know where to go if it happens again.

Annabelle Berry

Endometriosis / Eczema

I have suffered for almost eleven years with endometriosis which has caused me to experience a dull pain almost every day, and debilitating pain that at times could leave me bed ridden. This combined with a hormone imbalance resulted in me not having a cycle for almost ten years.

As a result of receiving several SCENAR Treatments I have started to have a regular cycle and the everyday dull pains have now receded to a point where they are few and far between.

What impressed me so much was that Phill researched my condition and talked me through the options of how we could go about treating the endometriosis in a natural, drug free way which was very important to me.

The treatment is extremely versatile as I have another pre-existing condition of Eczema on the sole of my foot, again after several treatments the Eczema has reduced in size and the irritation has reduced significantly.

Phill is extremely professional and I have been so impressed in the time and thought that he has put into researching my condition to seek a successful resolution. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending his services. It is wonderful that someone has challenged the medical status quo so that I do not have to rely upon drugs that have far more adverse effects than positive ones.

Phill, I am not quite as exciting or famous as some of your other testimonials but I feel that SCENAR Therapy can help others as it has done for me. Thank you so much.

Pseudo Myxoma Peritonei/Sinus Pain and Headaches

I was diagnosed with Pseudo Myxoma Peritonei and was operated on in March 2004. This condition is a very large tumor in the stomach, which made me look like I was pregnant and caused severe pain and discomfort. I had a full hysterectomy and the Doctor tried to remove as much of the Pseudo Myxoma Peritonei as possible but was diagnosed that it had come back again in August 2004. On the day I had my first SCENAR treatment with Phillip Hanney in December 2004 I was feeling very very sick and in a lot of pain.

My first SCENAR treatment was quite an experience with me taking a funny turn, but when the treatment was finished I left feeling as if I had, had a very long sleep, the pain in my stomach had gone and I felt completely refreshed. I have been seeing Phill now for eight months and in that time my energy levels are high and I am feeling extremely well. The tumor has reduced in size and I am totally pain free and have also returned back to work.

Before my treatment commenced I had suffered chronic sinus pain and headaches and took medication for 26 years. I do not suffer with sinus pain or take medication anymore and I am confident that with continued SCENAR treatment Phill is going to cure me completely of Pseudo Myxoma Peritonei.

Maurie Patane

Neuralgia / Shingles

After being diagnosed with Shingles in 2001, I was bedridden for six months. I had extremely severe and constant burning, sharp stabbing like pain and tingling in my neck, left shoulder and down the arm into the fingers. I suffered these symptoms everyday for four years and consulted a number of different specialists, doctors and therapist for treatment but no one seemed to have the answer to my problem.

I was then advised to see Phillip Hanney. Phill explained to me that Shingles attacks and lays dormant in nervous system and that SCENAR could help, as this treatment works with the nervous system. I was very skeptical at the time and I even told Phill that I didn’t think he could help me with the SCENAR as so many others had failed before. “How wrong I was”!! After the first treatment with SCENAR, the pain , burning and tingling in my neck, shoulder, arm and fingers had reduced dramatically. I had just two more treatments over the next two weeks and all symptoms had completely gone and have never returned.

I would highly recommend Scenartherapy for those who suffer with Shingles or any other associated pain and symptoms.

Thank you Phill.

Bulged Discs @ L2/3 , L3/4 , L4/5 , L5/S1, L3/4 compression of the left L3 nerve root, Grade 1- Spondylolisthesis @ L5/S1

I injured my back at work in June 2005, and was totally out of action with pain in my lower back, left buttocks, hip, groin and quad with numbness in quad and knee. I was advised by doctors that I would need to have an operation.

My son told me to see Phill Hanney for a second opinion, which I did. Phill treated me with his Myotherapy technique, three times over a three week period and reduced the back pain to nil, but the numbness in my quad and in particular the knee was still extremely bad.

Phill then recommended SCENAR therapy which reduced the numbness totally in my quad and about 50 percent in my knee in the first treatment. I had just three more SCENAR treatments and the numbness was gone.

I returned back to work immediately and am back to playing lawn bowls on weekends. I am very, very pleased with Phill Hanney and his Myotherapy/Scenartherapy and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Ganglionic Cyst in ankle/cartilage damage to knee/calcified blood clot in leg/torn ligaments in ribs

I sprained my ankle during 2003. It did not heal, so I consulted an orthopaedic surgeon who referred me to have x-ray’s and ultrasounds. These revealed a ganglionic cyst in the ankle. I was then referred to have it drained, however this did not work. The option which was presented to me was to have my ankle fused together which would limit the mobility in the ankle.

I had been seeing Phil Hanney for treatment when he introduced me to the SCENAR and used it to treat my ankle. I was amazed. After only one treatment the swelling, which had been there for over a year, had gone down considerably. I continued to be treated by Phil and I am now pain free in the ankle and the ganglionic cyst has disappeared. Phil has also treated me for a knee injury, calcified blood clot in the leg and torn ligaments in the ribs, all have successfully been treated with SCENAR.

I would highly recommend anyone who is suffering from an injury or pain, to visit Phill today!

Cartilage damage to both knees

I had suffered with pain and stiffness from medial meniscus tears in both knees for almost two years. I had an arthroscopy done to the right knee six months ago, which did not help much at all. I was referred to Phill Hanney for treatment and he told me of the effectiveness of SCENAR with any cartilage, ligament or tendon damage and that arthroscopies were not performed in Russia and parts of Europe any more as they now used Scenartherapy. After the first treatment I noticed a great improvement in both knees. I continued to have a course of treatment over the next eight week period and I am very pleased to say I no longer have any pain in my knees, my flexibility has greatly improved and I am now training, running and doing yoga again.

” If you’ve got bad knees you need to see Phill Hanney for Scenartherapy!”

Thanks heaps Phill, From Shane.

Matt Madden

Pinched Nerve in Neck.

I pinched a nerve in my neck whilst sleeping, which caused me excruciating pain in the right side of my neck, scapular, all the way down the arm into the thumb which felt like it was going to explode. I had been like this for one and a half weeks which physio’s would not touch as it was so acute and painful, when a friend said to try Phillip Hanney.

At the start of my first SCENAR treatment, my pain level, (on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the worst), was 10 – in my neck, arm and thumb. I also had no range of movement in my neck. After a one hour treatment my neck pain was reduced to 3, my arm and thumb pain was reduced to zero and my range of movement was 100 percent.

You could not take the smile off my face when I left, I was totally amazed!! I had my second treatment three days later and walked out totally cured.

I will definitely continue regular maintenance with Phill Hanney in the future.

Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain)

I have suffered with chronic pain in my left heel for over two years and was diagnosed with having Plantar Fasciitis.

During this two year period I was having regular on going treatment with supposedly one of the best physiotherapists around and also a supposedly very reputable podiatrist. Over this two year period I had a heel lift made for one of my shoes, orthotics, a plastic boot with a brace up to my knee that they told me I had to wear everyday, and a plastic splint to sleep in every night. I had to wear all of these things on a daily basis, because of the severity of the pain I was in and if I didn’t – the pain was unbearable. Not to mention all of the pain killers and anti-inflammatory’s I was taking.” I had spent thousands of dollars with these people and my pain was not improving”!! They told me that this was the only way this condition could be treated and I had also read this in medical books so I believed them. I also tried acupuncture and still no change, in fact it was getting worse.” These people told me I would have it for life”!!

I was told about Phill Hanney so I thought I would try something different. When I first met with Phill he was in absolute disbelief that I had this problem for so long and these people could not fix it and disgusted in the fact that they had cost me so much money in treatment and having all of these braces and splints made for my leg.

Phill explained to me that this problem is a simple muscular imbalance in the leg that was very easy to correct if treated properly but after feeling the severity of the problem he told me it would take a good six or seven treatments, possibly more. The problem muscle that Phill pointed out to me was in my calf and behind my knee and was just about unbearable to touch but he told me that this had to be released. Not one of the therapists that I had seen had ever touched on these areas at all.

Straight away Phill threw my heel lift in the bin and said I never needed this. After the second treatment I had stopped wearing the boot and leg brace. Three more treatments and I didn’t need to sleep in the splint anymore and Phill told me to take the orthotics out of my shoes. Four more treatments and I was back to coaching two soccer teams, running and bushwalking with no pain at all.

Thanks to Phill Hanney, the condition is now no longer a factor in my life!!

I would certainly recommend anyone suffering with chronic pain to see Phill Hanney.

Annie of Greenwich

Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain)

I suffered from heel pain in my left foot for almost 4 years, admittedly made worse by not seeking treatment for quite a few months, and running almost daily. Finally, when the pain was excruciating I sought treatment from a podiatrist who diagnosed me with plantar fasciitis and prescribed me orthotics, and gave me daily exercises to perform.

The pain continued even after having worn the orthotics daily for quite some time. I eventually saw a heel specialist and had more orthotics custom-made. These too had little affect on the problem. After a couple more years of going through daily foot pain I started to see a physiotherapist for the problem and was given more exercises to perform and yet again more heel inserts to wear. I still had heel pain every day and could no longer run or jog.

I finally came across the Myoenergy Health website through reading Ray Clark’s testimonial online. I didn’t have much hope that Phill could help me but I was willing to try anything! The first visit was very painful as Phill explained that my heel pain was related to my whole lower body being out of alignment and it needed strong manipulation to encourage tight muscles to relax and lengthen, and allow my body to realign and release tension through my calf and heel.

I survived that visit and continued to see Phill weekly for about 7 weeks. Each week the session got a little less painful and my foot was showing the first signs of improvement in years! By the end of my 8th visit, I was feeling almost no heel pain at all. I am now starting to jog again, and with care I can manage the problem and keep my heel pain under control. I have no hesitation in recommending Phill Hanney at Myoenergy Health to anyone with chronic plantar fasciitis such as I had.

Thank you so much Phill !

Torn Tendons in both shoulders

I have had severe pain and restricted movement in both shoulders for eight years as a result of the repetitive nature of my work and had tried a number of different treatments over the years with no success. I have had X-rays and ultrasounds which show full thickness tears to the supraspinatus and subscapularis tendons in both my right and left shoulders.

I was recommended to see Phillip Hanney of Myoenergyhealth.

After my first Scenar treatment I had a lot more range of movement in both shoulders and the pain was gone. I had my second treatment with Scenar one week later and I left feeling like a new person. Not only did my shoulders feel great but I felt totally energised.

I saw Phill one week later and he gave me a deep tissue Myotherapy Treatment to release all of the muscular tension in my shoulders and I have not had any pain or stiffness since.

I could not believe how fast and effective this treatment was and would highly recommend Phillip Hanney of Myoenergyhealth to anyone in pain.

Jacqueline Chesher

Complete tear of Rotator Cuff in right shoulder

I had a fall 5 years ago that resulted in a complete tear of the rotator cuff in my right shoulder (the muscles and tendons in shoulder that attach to bone). Three years ago I had surgery to re-attach the muscle. I then had 15 months of physiotherapy on my shoulder. None of these made any difference. Two years ago I had another surgery to re-attach the muscles and tendons but it was also unsuccessful as the surgeon said that the muscle would not hold to the bone.

As a result, I had a frozen right shoulder that meant that I suffered with a lot of pain and stiffness in my shoulder. I couldn’t lift my right arm above my waist and thus I was very limited in what I could do with my right arm. It hurt to turn my head so I only turned it slowly and with a limited range. I had a constant pain in my neck, top of both shoulders and back of head that I rated at 15 out of 10.

At age 79 my Doctors and Physiotherapist had run out of treatments options for me. They explained my poor healing may also be related to my age. I was skeptical as Scenar sounded too good to be true. I only visited Phil at the urging of my family who said that I had nothing to lose.

After 4 Scenar treatments, the last 2 with massages, I can now lift my right arm to eye height, I can do simple things such as open the door and reach forward. I can turn my head with relative ease. I now rate my neck pain as 3 out of 10.

I cannot believe how effective this treatment is. Phil seemed to have a very good understanding of the nature of my injury. I would highly recommend Phillip Hanney to anyone in pain.

Frozen Left Shoulder, Chronic Right Elbow and Lower Back Pain

When I first went to Phill Hanney for treatment I had been going to a physiotherapist for around 6 months. I had limited movement in my left arm accompanied by excruciating pain. My right elbow was also very painful caused by repetitive movement, with pain shooting up and down from my elbow. In the 6 months of physiotherapy treatment there was little or no improvement. After my first session with Phill, using the scenar and muscle manipulation, I could lift my left arm, without pain, to almost full capacity. My original range was about 45º.

Phill is also treating my lower back, and again this entailed unbearable pain before he started treatment. I also walked slightly stooped to one side and I was taking a lot of pain killers. After a couple of sessions, the stoop was corrected and the majority of pain has all but gone.

I had lived with chronic pain for so long, I started to think there was nothing that could be done about it. That was, until after my first appointment with Phill Hanney. The improvement in movement and pain was remarkable. Since then, my quality of life has improved and I have returned to almost full-time work.

I would recommend this treatment to anybody who is suffering from any type of injury or pain. Thanks Phill.

Fractured C1 and C2 vertebrae, spinal concussion and nerve damage

I received a gunshot wound to my neck whilst deployed to Afghanistan. It fractured my C1 and C2 vertebrae, caused spinal concussion and soft tissue damage through my neck. Before seeing Phill I had virtually no movement through my neck and my arm and shoulder movement was extremely compromised. I was in quite a bit of pain and discomfort and couldn’t sleep for more than an hour at a time.

After two sessions of Scenar treatment I had close to full range of motion in my neck again. The scar tissue around the entry and exit wounds and through my neck was reduced dramatically. Over the following weeks and months a combination of Scenar and Myotherapy has resulted in great recovery. My arms and shoulders have nearly full range of motion. I can now swim and even run a little. I can sleep through the night and I am pain free.

I have no doubt that Phill’s Scenar and Myotherapy treatments have contributed significantly to the speed and effectiveness of my recovery. Even my other neurological symptoms from the injury have reduced in severity during the treatment.

I have no hesitation in recommending Phill to any one, I cannot thank him enough for what he has done for me.

Fractured vertabrae in neck causing major pressure on spinal cord

In December 2009 I had a nasty ATV accident after which I saw Doctor for several months, each visit ending with him telling me I had whiplash it would take 6 weeks to heal before sending me back to work with a box of panadeine forte. Later I saw an osteopath who was highly skilled, however it became apparent than more was wrong than was being acknowledged. She stopped treating me until further investigation.

I woke up each morning with no feeling to my hands or feet and when the feeling came back it would come back with pins and needles coupled with pain. I could not sleep well, my muscles felt constantly locked and neck was beginning to become hypermobile. By June 2010 my condition had worsened and I was experiencing pain every day, I could no longer work, I spiralled into depression.

Eventually, I finally managed to convince a different doctor to order a MRI. The results were not positive. I had fractured my vertebrae and the disk had worn down allowing the vertebrae to slip forward placing major pressure on my spinal cord. I needed to have cervical spine surgery before I could receive any treatment due to the severity of the injury.

I contacted Phill as my closest friend had recommended him while I was still in Tasmania and discussed my options with him. After the phone call I knew to be safe hands of the best we needed to move to Sydney after the operation and try Phill’s individually tailored and unique form of massage and the magical Scenar.

We do not regret the decision. My recovery did not go to plan, in-fact my symptoms worsened, leaving me with minimal movement, further loss of sensation to my feet and hands and a constant feeling of heaviness. I felt mentally unable to look after myself and I had persistent migraines and continence issues. After operation and a series of further scans I was told I had other fibromyalgia, multiple spinal injuries and would require lower back surgery at a later date.

Due to Phill’s unique, holistic approach and combination of Scenar and massage he was able to treat me when no other therapist was. Through the use of the Scenar device my nerves, which were badly damaged during the operation, began to settle. Phill was also able to help break up the scar tissue at the base of my skull causing some of the migraines. After my initial treatment was the first time I had truly had pain relief since the accident more a year before.

After my first treatment I felt confident and hopeful that I would indeed recover and be able to enjoy time with my children again.

Phill was the only therapist I trusted to treat me, he was the core of my pain management and still is. I cannot express my appreciation for his help in words. Due to being in his care I no longer require the back surgery or medication for migraines. I have been able to commence physio and Hydro to build my muscles back up. I am confident to find my limitations as I know pain relief is now always available.

I continue to see Phill on a regular basis and I firmly believe in his abilities. His treatments have kept me going . It has given me back to my children and amazing other practitioners who have treated me. My movement increases with each visit and I no longer experience most of the side effects I previously was.

My aim is to become medication free as I have been told that I will be required to take two medications for nerve damage and fibromyalgia for the remainder of my days. With the Scenar, I do not believe this for a second. I celebrate meeting a practitioner with as much experience as Phill regularly recommending him with full confidence to anyone in need of healing.

Sending Love

Stress, anxiety, insomnia

I was in a very unfamiliar place. A place that I don’t care to go back to in a hurry!
I knew that I was not myself, unable to make simple decisions, not sleeping, feeling unwell all the time, my body was completely out of whack and generally I was very unhappy with and everyone and everything.
In desperation I rang Phill for an additional appointment to my regular ones.
I’ve had scenar in the past but don’t usually require it. However today was a very different story. As soon as Phill started working on me I could feel this enormous shift! By the end of the treatment I was almost back to my normal self.

Thank you Phill and scenar!

Chronic headaches

I had experienced chronic headaches for a couple of years on a daily basis from a constant aggravated neck . I had spent a small fortune on seeking help through various chiropractors, osteopaths and massage therapists. I was beginning to feel defeated and was sceptical that anyone could help me . Phill has a confidence when dealing with my neck that I had not experienced before. He is miles ahead of anyone I have even been treated by. Phill was recommended to me and I have since enjoyed a quality of life that I had long forgotten. I am headache free. I have no hesitation on recommending Phillip.

Mrs Marie Whittaker 

Chronic thigh/ hip pain

Hi, My name is Marie Whittaker from North Rocks Sydney, 76 years young. In August 2015 I had major surgery at St Gorge Hospital on my back resulting in fusion of my L4/L5.

On recovery the Neurosurgeon stated that the operation was a great success. My back pain was gone although I was in agony with a severe pain in my left thigh and Hip. I was unable to have physio treatment due to the serve pain in my thigh. After 3 weeks in hospital extensive x-rays and scans they could not relieve my pain only to conclude that I had a floating nerve and with time it COULD settle down. I was moved to a rehab hospital for treatment although little treatment could be done due to my severe pain. The neurosurgeon recommended further scans prior to my next visit at which he advised me that the scans were clear and that there was nothing he could do for my pain. He stated that I was to continue on the government authorised nerve pain medication and that hopefully the pain COULD settle after time. I was in pain day and night using a walking frame and stick to move around.

I was introduced to Mr Phill Hanney of Myoenergy Health who has a SCENAR Device that recalibrates the nervous system. After Phill inspected my x rays and scans he suggested that we start treatment with SCENAR. After 3 weekly treatments the pain had improved in my thigh although during the week the pain had now started in my right thigh, at the end of the 4th weeks treatment the pain in my left thigh had gone although my right thigh was still painful. After the 5th treatment I got up from the table totally free of pain, this was a MIRACLE. Phill suggested that I contact him in 2 weeks to check how my pain had settled. After being told by the neurosurgeon and specialists that they could do nothing more to relieve my pain except take further medication, Phill had cured all my pain in just 5 weeks. Still a little unstable on my feet I fell over on the driveway falling heavily on my arm and shoulder. Both my arms were extremely painful from elbow to shoulder. I was thinking I had damaged my neck or shoulder and was anticipating to have x rays to find the source of my arm pain.

Contacting Phill to advise him that my thigh pain had not returned and to thank him for the MIRACLE he had given me in removing all my pain, I mentioned my falling over and hurting my arms. Phill suggested to make a further visit as to allow him to assess any damage. After checking my neck and arm Phill treated my arms with his MIRACLE SCENAR, treating each arm for half an hour each. After this treatment ALL pain had now gone from my arms. I cannot thank Phill enough for the MIRACLE he has given me now being free of all my pain.

Donna Dillon 

Multiple Sclerosis

I have been living with Multiple Sclerosis for the past 22 years. In the past two years or so I started to experience pain in my lower back and hip, running down my leg into my knee. All my muscles in my legs and hips were tightening to the point I could hardly straighten my leg or put my foot flat on the floor. My walking was really being effected and I could only sit for short periods of time.

I tried cortisone injections, anti-inflammatory medications, three different Physio Therapist, Chiro and massage treatments. All of these gave very little relief. A personnel trainer who had knowledge of training people suffering from MS recommended Phil from Myoenergy to me.

I had 2 sessions with Phil using Scenar Therapy and massage. After the third session I was amazed, I was pain free and could move a lot more freely. The muscle tightness and cramping had subsided.

I can’t thank Phil enough and I highly recommend him to any one suffering from chronic pain. I will keep having ongoing treatment with Phil using Scenar Therapy and massage for prevention and wellbeing.

Thank you Phil, you are not only a professional in your field but show a concerned and caring attitude.

I sincerely can’t thank you enough.
