Phil Parker, PhD – Designer of the Lightning Process

I’ve always believed that almost anything is possible.  So when, in the 1990s, I was asked to find a new way to help people who were incredibly stuck with their health issues, I eagerly began researching into how we might use the Mind-Body Connection effectively.

I’d been fascinated with it since I’d used it to recover from an extremely serious hand injury and I was intrigued by the reports of other spontaneous recoveries and research into groups, such as the Buddhist monks, who seemed to overcome extremes of physical temperature and pain…

My background as an Osteopath and extensive experience as a therapist provided me with an opportunity to approach health issues, and ways to make changes in our health, from a totally new perspective – that research resulted in me designing the Lightning Process.

At first I ran all the seminars myself but it soon became apparent that the Lightning Process could help many more people if there were more practitioners specially trained to run the seminars around the world.  Developing a Register of professionally trained LP practitioners has meant my work has now helped thousands of people change their lives and health for the better.

I continue to delve into this fascinating area and have recently completed my PhD in the Psychology of Health, this research, alongside my other work, enables me to further develop the Lightning Process.

The success of the LP and the increased number of highly skilled practitioners offering the seminars means that I now run less courses myself, although I do still offer 2 or 3 seminars a year (you can find out about my next LP seminars here).

It’s been a truly fascinating journey so far, and there’s so much more to do to bring hope, health and a better future to all – I do hope this site is the starting point for your journey to getting the kinds of changes you wish for too.
