ConTact C.A.R.E is a practical form of healthcare for both people and animals and offers a "Commonsense Approach to Real Ease".
Greg Jamieson is a ConTact C.A.R.E practitioner, having trained with founder Dale Speedy, and has a growing number of fantastic results and testimonials from his clients ranging from people with both long term health problems to recent injuries needing treatment, and horses including pleasure horses through to international competition horses. Both Greg and Diana have completed an Equine ConTact C.A.R.E certificate and use this method regularly in life at Chester Farm while working with the horses in their care.
In Greg's own terms, ConTact C.A.R.E offers the chance for your body to help heal itself and provides "drug-free pain relief". It is a gentle treatment that works with the body's approval, there is absolutely no force or pain involved during a treatment meaning it can be used on people of all ages and stages of life (and animals!).
ConTact CARE is excellent for old or new impact injuries and health problems. Above: Home clinic.

ConTact C.A.R.E Flinchlock Release is a system to locate and release trapped bone pressure, triggered and held by surprise impact. A Flinchlock happens when an impact enters the bone by surprise. For example falls, accidents, sports injuries etc. Our body can hold injuries (minor or major) from many years earlier that have long been forgotten about but can be still affecting us to this day and causing a wide range of complications. Many times the story of these old injuries will resurface during a treatment as told by the clients own body responses and pressure trails. Force enters the bone followed by a reaction. In this combination the involuntary contraction locks pressure into the bone. The impact pressure becomes the bone's new working pressure (bone memory) resulting in hardened ligaments, tendon and muscle fascia. This creates joint imbalance, strain and tension which is often felt in corresponding parts of the body as they try to compensate and take up the workload of the injured area.

ConTact C.A.R.E recognises the body's self defence system and understands the pressure for pressure balance interplay between head and body which is used to match and neutralize the original impact injury pressure. By supporting the body and allowing it to release the trapped pressure from the bone, many conditions and injuries causing musculo-skeletal discomfort, tension, stress or pain can be very effectively work with.

Greg's Personal Story
With close family and friends having very successful treatments over the years from both ConTact C.A.R.E founders Dale Speedy and Kym Summers for a number of minor and major health complaints, it was following a spinal injury in 2014 that Greg truely experienced and understood the incredible results that ConTact C.A.R.E could provide. After being hit in the lower back by a horse while leading her through a gate, the impact broke the disk between his L4 and L5 vertebrae into 3 pieces. As the months went on this saw him unable to work and with constant pain and numbness down his entire left side. Despite finding some pain relief from treatments with Dale, surgery to fix the broken bone became a necessary option, however a year of already carrying the injury had resulted in alot of other ongoing pain, physical and emotional symptoms caused by his body trying to support such a major and traumatic injury. Following spinal fusion surgery in 2015, the only follow up treatment that Greg had was fortnightly ConTact C.A.R.E treatments with Dale Speedy which were the instrumental factor in Greg's excellent rehabilitation and getting back to full health with no back pain whatsoever and feeling better than ever.

Greg's lifelong work with horses, understanding of pressure / release, awareness of body lanugauge and movement combined with an excited interest in the treatment - even more so during his own post surgery recovery - saw him undertake ConTact C.A.R.E training under the guidance of treatment founder Dale Speedy. Now a ConTact C.A.R.E therpaist, Greg has found a very natural affinity for the work and has already provided many people and horses with amazing results from both recent and very long term pain and health problems.
A few client testimonials...
"I found myself suddenly experiencing sharp shooting pains from my thumb up to my shoulder, and several other symptoms consistent with RSI, which I attributed to too much time on my keyboard. I was preparing to undergo costly tests with a specialist but Greg thought ConTact C.A.R.E might help. 40mins later I was "done". I can hand-on-heart say I have not experienced a single shooting pain since! Three months later and no symptoms have returned. I'm truely amazed that one session could 'fix' what I thought was muscular trauma. I can't speak highly enough of Greg's work. "
"I had Greg look at my sore points in Rome before the Nations Cup competition and must say his work impressed me! So of course I wanted my horse Fine to get the same good result as me. She was much lighter to ride after her treatment."
Daniel Meech, NZ Olympic Showjumper
"I was fortunate to have Greg work with my horses and myself with ConTact C.A.R.E. both during competition and at home recently. The horses showed a significant improvement in their well-being and locomotion. Happy horses, happy rider. I look forward to the next opportunity to work with Greg to see what else we can improve. "
Sam Mcintosh, NZ Olympic Showjumper
"Thankyou so much Greg for the work you did on me today. I feel so light and honestly can't remember the last time I walked so freely! Your work is amazing, thankyou."
"Whilst at an Adult Rider Empowerment weekend clinic at Chester Farm (which by the way was awesome! and also highly recommended), Greg picked up on my stiffness and poor positon whilst riding, he spoke with me and carried out some ConTact C.A.R.E. I am from a medical background and worked with my alternative therapies but had not previously heard of this. I have previously had two prolapsed discs, and shoulder injuries, so was well aware of my unintentional hunched position, protecting my back. During the treatment I heard clicks and felt releases. Amazing! Slept on a camping bed that night and was worried about my back the next morning, No problems! Got on my horse and sat so much better. My back has NEVER felt so good, I have felt so much healthier and my horse enjoys my improved posture. I am a convert and would highly recommend this treatment. It really has truly changed my life."
"I thoroughy recommend Greg Jamieson and his ConTact C.A.R.E Treatment. I was in a pretty bad way after leaving a Showjumping event which was not successful and headed straight to Chester Farm and Greg. He could see straight away while he watched me ride my horse that I had severe pain in my left knee. What transpired was amazing, he treated me while I was sitting on my horse and as well as releasing the pain in my knee I also experienced an emotional release as well, quite incredible as I had probably been carrying that pain around for some time. He also picked up on some back issues I was having and I had several treatments for that which offered pain relief also. Later we found I had to have quite a major back operation for this broken bone injury but I will continue with Greg shortly to help my recovery from this as well. I do believe that without Greg's help I wouldn't even be riding at all by now!"
