I was introduced to Bowen Therapy when I sought relief after experiencing a painful leg for a number of years. Visits to a Sports Specialist and X-rays revealed no reason for the pain. Part of the pain, I was sure, was stress-related, however, at that stage I was looking for physical relief from the constant discomfort. I was amazed at the positive results after just three Bowen treatments, and this made me want to learn more in order to be able to offer relief to others.
I qualified as a Bowen Therapist in December 2015. During my training I was reassured that I had chosen the most amazing therapy as my “guinea pig’s” aches and pains were relieved. Continuing studies of this technique keep me current and improve and advance my skills.
Bowen treatments involve very gentle touch and are suitable for babies, children, and adults of all ages. Interestingly enough, the Bowen treatment itself does not ‘cure’, but it stimulates the body into taking its own corrective action. I will be delighted to offer relief to those who are suffering from various pains, discomfort and stress.
It should be noted that many of us suffer pain and discomfort for some time before we seek treatment, i.e. the body has become used to this state. It is therefore quite possible that you will not find immediate relief with just one treatment, as the body needs to undo what it has been hanging onto. It is recommended that clients receive at least three Bowen treatments, each about one week apart, in order to stimulate the body to take the appropriate corrective action.
