After ten years of practising Bowen Therapy, I am still so surprised how quickly chronic pain can clear - pain that has plagued a person for many years often resolves with three treatments, and occasionally resolves after one! I thought I'd share a testimonial I just received from a hairdresser who I treated recently.
"I’ve been a hairdresser for 30 years, and have been getting aches and pains in the right side of my body off and on for ages – neck, mid back, lower back, hip, knee and ankle. I just thought it was because of my work and I’d have to put up with it forever. This summer I slipped and did the splits (not very elegantly I might add!) and must have hurt something because I was in a lot of pain in my hip, glutes and down the back of my right leg, kind of like sciatica. Nothing seemed to make any difference until I started Pilates, and it gradually got better but didn’t go away completely, and was worst at night. By winter all the aches and pains in my right side were constant, and the sciatica was really bad at night and when I was working.
In July I heard about Bowen Therapy. It sounded really gentle and as I was so sore I thought I could handle it better than massage. I was astounded by the result. When I stood up after the treatment I felt really light with no pain at all except in my neck. Prue did a few more things on my neck and I had no pain at all, anywhere.
It was two weeks before I could get back for my second treatment, and I was totally pain free that whole time except there was a little niggle in my hip and my neck was a bit sore for two days before I saw Prue again. I was also sleeping really well. After that second treatment I felt fantastic. I had another treatment three weeks later, and think I might be able to start exercising again soon. I’m so pleased Bowen came into my life."
Most people have a great result with Bowen, like this, but occasionally some have little or no relief, and unfortunately I can't tell who will and who won't benefit. But Bowen can't hurt because it is so gentle, and with quite a high success rate it makes sense to try it.
