I was 7 or 8 years old. I had every opportunity as a child. My parents were selfless and all was done for us kids. But I wasn't happy. I vividly remember sitting at the end of my bed, upset, and with only one thought. I wanted to help people. I wanted to write a book. I wanted to inspire, empower and enable people to be happy. I just didn't know how I would do it. Fast forward to 2018 and that's still my goal. To make an impact and give people the courage and tools to be happy.
I support the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals because I believe it us up to us 'normal people', not governments to solve our worlds problems. It's not like there's a lack of money, food or clean drinking water in this world. If we could all contribute in small meaningful ways, together we could end hunger, poverty, save lives, save animals and even prevent further damage to mother nature.
Dr Gary Tho is a chiropractor, author, speaker, pillow designer, ex-National Australian badminton player, and most importantly a husband and father of two beautiful girls. He is the founder of ChiroWorks, a pain relief and peak performance clinic, the author of The Pain-Free Desk Warrior, Free Yourself From Aches and Pains, a self-help book for those stuck at their desk for more than 2 hours a day, and a speaker, having conducting over 600 corporate talks, workshops and events. Dr Gary specialises in helping people be the best that they can be. His clients include world champion athletes, busy executives and super mums and dads.
Being side-lined, battling ankle, knee, shoulder back and neck aches, pains and injuries as an elite athlete and also in the last few years as a father, Dr Gary understands the mental and physical toll that simple aches and pains impose. Pain distracts us, zaps our energy, interrupts our sleep, prevents us from doing what we want and need to do, and is simply annoying. Instead of accepting it as part and parcel of our lives, Dr Gary believes that we all deserve to feel great, move well, heal and live life without limitations.
Dr Gary is also offers talks and workshops on all areas of health, lifestyle and fitness as well as online posture and movement analysis. He is looking forward to publishing another 4 books (Good posture in 10 minutes - Stages 1, 2 & 3, and Sleeping peacefully in 10 minutes - 99 ways to sleep well tonight). He will also be launching his online FeelGreat programs by late 2018.
Dr Gary has been interviewed on Channel 7 (Malaysia), 938Live, and contributed to stories and articles in many Singapore newspapers, magazines.
Business for Good
Business for Good
We all deserve to live well, and have access to basic necessities of food, water, education and health care. That’s why Giving is part and parcel of my business.
Each time I see a new client, sell a copy of my book or complete a corporate program, something magical happens somewhere around the world. We're making a positive difference in the world.
Through our Lifetime Partnership with B1G1: Business for Good we are able to make giving part of our business. Unlike traditional giving programs that use a portion of your donation for administration fees, B1G1 pass 100% of our giving to the nominated projects. B1G1 also breaks down all projects into the smallest amount required to make an impact, so no matter how big or small our giving is, we can still make a positive difference in the world. (e.g. $0.01 to give 1 person access to clean water for 1 day, compared to $5,000 to sponsor a well). Finally, B1G1 has a very strict selection process for the Worthy Cause projects that we support.
