duncanI arranged an appointment recently with Duncan Fraser, one of The Haven’s little cadre of exceptional body workers and healers. Many friends and colleagues have spoken of his remarkable skills at guiding people to a more whole and balanced experience of life.

My lower back was on my mind, so to speak, where the pain is chronic, down on the right side of my spine. The ache is sometimes severe, sometimes moderate, but never entirely absent. Pain is always a messenger, and I had long ago received the message.

Duncan asked me a few questions, listening attentively. I talked about my back, of course, putting my hand on my hip, spine and thigh. Duncan nodded, asked me to walk around, sit down, lie down, breathe.
