Why People Recommend Jonathan
Testimonials from Patients

Practitioners who get most of their business because patients recommend them are probably busiest, and possibly happiest. Advertising is expensive but to refer a friend to a practitioner indicates you confirm that he or she has done good work.

Comments about Jonathan and some of his other treatments

'Jonathan has helped me enormously when other practitioners, both orthodox and alternative, have either given up or failed. I am not ‘out of the woods’ yet having had a chronic illness for 30 years, but if anyone can cure me, then I know Jonathan can. He is a bit of a modern ‘alchemist’! ’ – (CH, East Lothian: March 2010)

‘I regard Jonathan both personally and professionally with the highest regard. His knowledge never ceases to amaze me and his personality is unique!’ (Gillian Drysdale, Portobello, Drug Rehabilitation: March 2010)

'Jonathan’s services are some of the best, most professional and effective of any I have ever experienced. I would never go to anyone else. He has helped me more than I could ever begin to describe.' (Michael Boyd, full-time student, Corstorphine, Edinburgh, 1/4/10)

'In our experience, Jonathan handles his clients very sensitively and prescribes with the utmost care. He explains how bodily systems operate and the theory behind using one remedy over another, so you always feel as if you have a good understanding of why he has suggested your particular remedy. He has worked with both my son and I since 2005 and I usually compare Jonathan’s homeopathic skills to waving a magic wand, the transformation being so enormous as a remedy works! In addition to scheduled appointments, Jonathan has also been readily available at the end of a phone to advise and reassure and has at all times treated us with care and professionalism. I cannot thank him enough for his continued support and insightful treatments.' (Gemma Beher, Mum/University Lecturer, Dunblane, February 2010)

Comments by patients who received Bowen treatment from Jonathan and recommend him

Read about Bowen here.

'Jonathan interduced me to the Bowen method. I was doubtful as I had a longterm back injury. After the first treatment I felt so different as the pain had become dull and very much less intense. I also felt it awaken my whole body. I looked forward to my next two treatments. Which also went better than expected. I am very grateful for Johnathan who using the Bowen treatment made me feel so much better.’ Joan Major, Edinburgh (Received three treatments.)

'I suffered with repetitive severe back pain from an injury. I went to the Edinburgh Natural Health Clinic to see Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott. I was introduced to the Bowen method. After receiving just three sessions I have had total relief for over two months.' Kerry Watts, Falkirk (Received three treatments.)

'I had suffered a shoulder muscle injury while weight training and although having visited a physiotherapist, it did not appear to be improving. It was preventing me from playing tennis competitively with the impact on my serve. Using the Bowen Technique, the difference was evident after the first session and continued over the following weeks. I have now been able to return to the gym and play tennis again to my former standard as a county player. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jonathon's expertise with these ailments and in particular the use of the Bowen Technique.' Alistair Armstrong, Edinburgh (Received three treatments)

"I recently volunteered to a three week program for Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott at the Edinburgh Natural Health Centre with regard to the Bowen technique. I approached the first meeting with an open mind, having not done anything like this before. I had been feeling generally stressed, run down and not sleeping properly. Jonathan’s approach is very thorough. He takes a great deal of time to discuss matters regarding my general health and well being before starting any treatment. I was also made to feel totally at ease with the whole procedure. I must admit to being a bit sceptical regarding how this could work during my first session, as the whole process is so subtle. The process involves gentle manipulations of various muscles which includes periods of rest between each application. The overall process is very restful. I can honestly say that after my second visit I was sleeping and feeling a lot better and this continued after my third and final visit. Due to the outstanding results and benefits I have received from this form of treatment, any future complaints, my first port of call with be Jonathan. Peter Lavin – Edinburgh (Received three treatments)


NB All the comments above are in the words (and spelling) of the patients who recommend me.

Although most of my business arrives because people recommend me, I don't usually collect recommendations like these. I did so with a few patients in May 2010 when I was planning to give a one-day seminar on marketing for members of the Scottish Association of Professional Homoeopaths that Summer. (That's also why there are more examples of homoeopathic patients who recommend me than acupuncture patients, although I actually see more patients for acupuncture.)

I was able to show those who attended the seminar what worked, how to ask patients to recommend the practitioner and how to improve their businesses.

If you are a patient of a practitioner whom you think is good, do recommend him or her to your friends.

That probably helps your practitioner and may help your friends. You'll feel good too!

All the comments made are signed by those who made them. In some cases individuals were very happy to recommend me but preferred to keep their identities out of the public eye, so are identifiable only by their initials.
