"Every time I hurt myself, Prue Duffy has been able to help me with her Bowen. The first time it was my sore chest after a chiro treatment had gone wrong. Then it was a crook neck. Another time I had a sore hand. I broke a rib some time later and each week after my Bowen treatment it had a big improvement. I’m sure the recovery was quicker and less painful than it would have been without Bowen. My neck is crook again and I’m sure she’ll sort that out too."
"At the start of the year my lower leg became extremely painful, and over the months the painful area and discoloration grew from my ankle almost up to my knee. It was quite alarming. I tried Bowen Therapy with Prue Duffy, and after the second treatment the pain and discoloration began to subside. By the third treatment, 5 weeks after the first, my leg was pain free. But I keep going back to see Prue because of the effect Bowen seems to be having on my high blood pressure.
For years I have had high blood pressure, normally within the range of 170/90 to 195/102. I have been on blood pressure medication all this time, and even so at times it would spike to over 200 – that’s when I would go to the hospital for observation and help. I would need to do that more than 6 times a year, and normally if I travel away for a week or so I would need to go to the hospital at least once for support.
Surprisingly, last month I went away to Victoria for a week and it was the first time for a very long time I did not have a spike in blood pressure. I went away again to the Central Coast this month without needing to visit a hospital as well. Since I have been back my blood pressure readings have been around 150/78, and even at the doctor’s the other day, where it is normally a bit higher, it was 140/78.
I cannot put this down to a change in my lifestyle, diet, season or medications. The only thing I’ve done differently is to have some Bowen treatments. I’ll keep having Bowen every month to see what happens!"
"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."
"First time I heard from the Bowen Therapy was from a good friend who had treatments from Prue Duffy. She had such good results, I decided to give it a go, too.
When I started the Bowen Therapy I told Prue that I was unable to travel overseas to visit my sick father and family. A few months beforehand I was diagnosed with Meniere’s disease. That means, in the evening I lost the balance and walked like a drunk (without a drop of alcohol) and the noise in my ears was annoying. Sometimes it got that bad I had to vomit. I also suffer from severe headaches and migraines since 2006, when I had a brain bleeding (SAH). My left shoulder and neck were hurting too, from a car accident with whiplash. To top it up, I also have the Restless Legs Syndrome, had some bladder problems and the jaw joints were hurting, too.
I am 56 years old and I had a healthy lifestyle almost all of my life: I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, I am not overweight and I eat fresh cooked food almost every day.
After the first treatment the shoulder pain, I had for more than 15 years, was gone. I couldn’t believe it! With every treatment, my health improved: most of the side effects of the Meniere’s disease disappeared, just the ringing in the ears is sometimes there. I have no bladder problems and no joint pains anymore. Nowadays I hardly have any migraine and the headache and neck pains are mostly gone. I have now more and more days without a headache and this is fantastic. I had hardly a day without since I had the brain bleeding in 2006 after I was just happy to have survived and was still able to live my old life. We are still working to improve the nightly cramps which are caused by the Restless Legs Syndrome.
I just came back from a trip to Europe with more than 26 hours of flying one way. I had absolutely no problem on my flights and during my family visit.
I am very grateful to have met Prue Duffy. She is an experienced Bowen therapist and a wonderful and trustworthy person, always eager to help you with any of your health problems. I am always careful who touches my head and neck to not cause any more health problems as I already have. I completely trust Prue Duffy and her Bowen technique. I didn’t expect any wonders, but what she achieved with the Bowen Therapy is far more than I ever dreamed of. My quality of life got so much better and all this thanks to Prue and her Bowen Therapy.
When you have health problems and think there is no help or cure, have a go and have some treatments with Prue and her Bowen Therapy. If you don’t try, you will never know if it works for you. It certainly works for me."
"Dear Prue, I want to thank you so much for the work that we did together during those chaotic months last year. I don't know what would have happened without the support of the psychologist and you. Whilst the psychologist was so good listening and understanding, and the life skills he offered were invaluable, it was the work I did with you that gave me the inspiration to get up every morning, and the clarity, purpose and courage to lead my family through those long turbulent months. Incredibly we have come through that period closer than ever. Whilst I'm not sure we like each other at times, we have an incredible respect and deep love for each other that I'm sure few families share. That is an incredible gift, and I am quietly proud that I was able to lead my children through the chaos relatively unscathed to this point. Thank you for enabling me to give that to my children."

"Hi Prue, This is just to let you know that I really appreciated being able to go to you for some Bowen Therapy. I have felt so much better since having the treatment and enjoy really feeling like getting out into the garden again. It is amazing how my headache has cleared up, my neck isn't so stiff, my back is not killing me and it has also helped my feet. I must admit that I was a bit sceptical at first, when my sister told me about Bowen Therapy, but not anymore and I have already told some of my friends how good it is too. I do wish you all the best in your venture, it is a very helpful therapy, and I hope that you are able to help others as you have helped me."

"In desperation after suffering agonising pain from sciatic nerve problems continuously for six weeks, as a last resort I contacted Prue Duffy who kindly offered her services of Bowen therapy just before Xmas. I didn't know what to expect, all I knew was that I needed relief from the pain I was experiencing. I had a session of 2 hours with Prue and after that I got up and walked around without any pain. What a blessed relief. I have had follow up treatments every week for 6 weeks and following these treatments have now been without pain for the last 2 weeks, it has been a wonderful transformation and I am deeply grateful for the treatments I have received which has given me a new lease on life."
Farmer, 74 year old
"I’ve had a burning sensation in the top part of my legs for over 11 years. Doctors and specialists and professors have not been able to tell what it was caused by, and haven’t been able to fix it. Chiropractors would not treat me, and referred me back to the doctors. I had not been able to sleep on that side for many years, and since the first Bowen treatment I was able to comfortably sleep on that side. By the fourth Bowen treatment the burning sensation had totally gone, and I could actually stand in one place for a long time, eg. ironing, without any pins and needles, burning or pain. Other things that improved are my bowels, sleeping pattern, depression and clarity of thought. Now we’re working on my neck which has been crunching for a long time, and it is feeling much more comfortable. I love Bowen!"
"I have had great results with Bowen Therapy. My back, knee and mobility has never been better. I would recommend this treatment to all people of any age. I have never felt better."
"Bowen is fantastic! In four weeks it has reformed me from an unhappy, unmotivated, cranky old man who was stiff, sore, leaning to one side, couldn't turn my neck and couldn't stand up straight. Now my back is travelling at about 95%, I'm much straighter, and the groin pain, tight hamstrings and sore thighs for which I originally sought treatment has just about gone. Not only that, I'm sleeping better than I have for years and I'm happy, motivated and socialising for the first time in a long time. I keep going back every week for a Bowen treatment because I just feel better and better after each visit. I wonder how good an old bloke can get!

"I have been anxious and had regular panic attacks for as long as I can remember. Prue taught me a series of Bowen moves to do when I started getting worried or losing control, and it stopped the panic attacks in their tracks! I only had to do it four times, and it's like my body has learned that it doesn't need to over react anymore."
