“I was fortunate enough to have a consultation with Dylan when his close associate from India, Dr Raju visited Melbourne in June. The experience was rather eye-opening and unique. Dr Raju was humble yet freakishly insightful and Dylan expertly interpreted/explained the treatments as well as dispensing correct medicines and answering any questions I had. A memorable and excellent experience.”

His massage technique was firm without being painful, he made sure I was comfortable and informed as he conducted the massage and I was able to fully relax and enjoy the experience. In fact I may even have drifted off for a few blissful minutes there! I highly recommend him."
