Bowen is doing amazing things every day, all over the world. One lady from Pennsylvania shared her experience of being treated with Bowen in the recent Bowen Hands Journal, and her story inspired me to share it with you.
“The first time I wheeled my walker into your office, I didn’t know what to expect. Medically this has been a horrible year for me. Everything that could possibly be done to help me was being done. The day after a successful aorta valve replacement, I went into shock and my lungs, kidneys and bones were all failing me. An induced coma helped save my life, but my right arm was broken in the process of moving me and no one knew it. It went undetected until I was brought out of the coma. My whole body was weakened and infection after infection set in. Finally, after two months in hospital and two months in Concordia of South Hills for rehab, I was sent home to recoup. However, I was left to deal with EXTREME dizziness/vertigo and the pain in my degenerating hips, knees and groin.
When we met, I was beyond hope and desperation. I can honestly tell you I was giving up. My niece told me about you and we felt it was worth a try.
THANK GOD WE DID! Mary, the FOG HAS LIFTED from my head!
The very first time you worked on my head I FELT THE FOG LIFT as soon as you touched that part of my skull.
What is amazing is that I had been telling doctors about that area of my head FOR MONTHS and no one even looked at it … much less felt back there. The reaction on my fog, and dizziness, was IMMEDIATE. As we left you that first day, I was PRAYING this clarity in my eyes and head would last! IT WAS AMAZING AND WE ARE NOW AT WEEK THREE AND IT HASN’T COME BACK.
My second visit was soothing and eased some of the pain in my spine and legs. While I was still weak, my energy level was improved and the SHARP EDGE of my pain had dulled to a livable point.
HOWEVER, THE TWO BIGGEST IMPROVEMENTS CAME IN MY THIRD VISIT! I had severe leg surgery and toe amputations fifty years ago. Since then, I could not feel the front of my legs. Actually, the only thing I could feel in my legs was PAIN. On that third visit, you did something with the back of both legs that made me feel as if someone had just turned on the faucets and blood was going through my legs again. Since that treatment, my whole body feels better. My pain is almost totally gone and while I am still stiff when I get up, that horrible pain that would take my breath away is GONE!
Mary, I’m sorry to write you such a long email but I am not good with the computer AND I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW WHAT BOWEN HAS DONE FOR ME.
If you can figure out how to get it on a website or something – where people can read about what has happened to me, I would appreciate it. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO USE MY NAME ON IT AS WELL. I want people to know that this is real … I am a real person who has been suffering terribly and now I feel like life is returning to me after all. I don’t know if it works for everyone or not. I can only tell you what has happened to me BUT I WOULD LIKE OTHERS TO KNOW BECAUSE PERHAPS IT CAN HELP ONE OTHER PERSON TO AVOID WHAT I HAVE BEEN THROUGH.
You must tell people that they need to keep an open mind AND while you are working on them, they must clear their minds and think about what they have to do next or their grocery list, etc. Just let you and Bowenwork Therapy do your magic!!!
With gratitude that never ends,
Many thanks to Antoinette and her Bowen Therapist, Mary Martorano, for sharing this with the world through Bowen Hands, the journal of The Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia.
