Working with Bowen is a true joy, and I am continually surprised by the delightfully positive results people have. It is the significant difference that it makes in people's lives that is both inspiring and humbling.
"Yeah, I love rugby. You won't be able to fix my knees, so this will be my last rugby season. I'm going to enjoy it as much as I can." June 2009
The person who said this to me before his first Bowen treatment was only 12 years old. Fancy being convinced that at the age of 12 it would be the last season he would play the sport about which he was so passionate.
This client had seen doctors, specialists, chiropractors, osteopaths, and anybody else his parents could think of. Bowen was the last idea they had, then it would be surgery which was the last option they wanted to take, as they were told it would be not a total fix and he would not be able to be very active afterwards.
There are times when Bowen works and there are times when Bowen doesn't work. Is it the person? Is it the condition? Is it that the client doesn't believe? Is it that the practitioner doesn't believe? Or is it as random as the bird on the telephone pole to the right of the green tree flew off to the right not the left? I remember thinking to myself that if all these knowledgeable people had checked these knees out and couldn't fix them, how could I? Thank goodness for all the Bowen people who simply say "trust in the process, just believe". So I put all doubt out of my head, said a little prayer and had a "chat" to Mr Bowen, and planned a three week treatment schedule.
After only two treatments this young fellow was pain free and his knees were working a treat. Four years on he is still loving his rugby, and playing it very well I might add. Thank you Mr Bowen.
Knees are funny things, and not long after I treated this boy a young lady came in for a similar condition with her knees. By the time she had refereed a few games of soccer and played her soccer game her knees were swollen and very painful. She would rest on the lounge for the remainder of the weekend, and by Wednesday they had recovered enough to go to training and start all over again. This had happened all the season before, and we were in the middle of the second season of pain, and she was beginning to think she would have to give up the sport she loved. Once again, a three week treatment schedule made a marked difference, and the young lady is making her mark on the soccer fields of Canberra now. Thanks again Mr Bowen.
If you think I might be able to help your knees, or you have an issue which is potentially going to stop you playing sport, I'd be happy to hear from you. For more information check out my website, email or phone me on 0427 143 743 for an appointment.
Cheers for now,
