How many sessions have you received (and how often)?:

I am more relaxed, with less muscle tension & the neck pain, instead of being an almost daily thing (I would wake up with it), has only materialised once or possibly twice a week. Consequently I have slept better & need less medication. I have used Bowen for other reasons before; the most notable was relief from the excruciating pain of a trapped nerve last year.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

After a few weeks of physio and taking painkillers plus anti-inflammatories, my trapped nerve in my neck had not improved. I had pain down my left arm and in my shoulder blade and my index finger was numb. Being a busy, self-employed farmer, this prevented me from working normally or sleeping properly. I thought I had to try something different so, with some scepticism, I started the Bowen treatment with Janie. The first session was amazing as the pin reduced by about 70% next day. As the week went on the symptoms came gradually back, but not as bad as before. This continued to improve with each session I had. I could reduce my painkillers down to zero and sleep better too. I am not 100% yet but am well on the way and being able to resume my work. I would recommend the Bowen Treatment as I am convinced it helped me through this difficult and frustrating time.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

I visited Janie for help with severe shoulder and neck pain which I had had for several months. The pain began to ease after the first visit. I had several more sessions of Bowen and now my neck and shoulders are free moving and I am without pain. I also consulted Janie about a very long term (over 30 years) sinus and rhinitis problem. I have had a series of Bowen treatments where Janie concentrated on my sinuses. The treatments began slowly but after 4 or 5 sessions improvement was more rapid. I am now able to go out without my pockets full of tissues!

I first had a taster session at a Synergy Fair at Saltburn. Which I thought was good. It helped my aches and pains from my whiplash. Then I had a fall and I got in touch with Judith again as I was having quite a bit of pain in my back legs and neck. I find going for my treatment very relaxing and if I have any aches or pains, Judith always seems to get rid of them for me. A very nice lady.

I experienced stiffness and pain in my neck and was recommended to Bowen Therapy by a friend who had similar though more severe problems. Having tried other remedies she told me that Bowen cured her problem. Following her advice I had two or three appointments with Janet who obtained immediate relief. I had a reoccurrence some months later and again a few appointments resulted in alleviation of the problem.

I have benefitted three times form Bowen therapy over about three years. My first visit to my therapist was for tiredness and energy loss which took three visits to cure. A couple of years later I had a painful shoulder and recently extreme discomfort in my neck which resulted in headaches. These both took two visits. No recurrence of any of these problems and all without drugs. Perfect.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

I underwent a serious operation to my neck which involved removing two discs and replacing them with bone grafts. I have absolutely no doubt that the Bowen treatment I received, both in preparation and immediately following the operation, restored me to normal functioning much more quickly than I or the surgeon expected. I was discharged from hospital some days earlier than they normally allow. My recovery progressed at a rate that the surgeon remarked was most unusual. I had very much less pain than is normal with this operation. I broke my ankle and again opted for Bowen treatment. The pain reduction and the rapid restoration of full movement once more exceeded my expectations. I can run again!

I initially went to see Judith because I had terrible neck pain that was not alleviated by prescription painkillers or physiotherapy. Judith recommended the Bowen and within a fortnight I was pain free and my tension headaches gone. I continued to have Bowen on a monthly basis until I went to Africa to work, 6 months without the Bowen and I noticed it. I am now back to having regular sessions. This will continue for mind and body.

Neck Problems

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

I had suffered with neck and shoulder problems for a year or so after a fall; this was exacerbated recently subsequent to my sitting immobile for a long period whilst undergoing a stem cell donation procedure. Recommended by my son-in-law, I underwent a series of Bowen treatments by Penny Gibbings. In total I had five sessions and after a noticeable improvement from the first session my symptoms gradually further improved. I now have significantly more and pain free movement in both neck and shoulder. This has helped me generally day to day and certainly when driving.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

I came to see Stephen Blackwood, a Registered Bowen Therapist working from a clinic in my local Pharmacy, after 25 years of various treatments [including physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic, acupuncture and cortico-steroid injections] on my neck, lumbar region and for a more recent 3 years shoulder pains, causing restricted movement, plus arthritic knees and thumbs. Sleep was also very poor. After my first session of Bowen, my neck felt freer, sleep improved and I felt extremely optimistic about the treatment with regard to my other concerns. Three Bowen treatments later, at weekly intervals, I had greater range of movement in my shoulder and arm, my hips and buttocks were much less painful and not as stiff, with much more movement. I could walk and sit for much longer. My legs and knees were more relaxed and actually pain free and my thumbs were greatly improved. For years I've been plodding, but now, and not since my sporting days, have I felt the connection of the muscles and them working, as I now can again. Of all the treatments I have tried, I have found Bowen by far, to be the most effective and immediate. I have weekly Bowen sessions and continue to be amazed at how it benefits me. I am so glad I discovered it and inexpressibly happy because of it. Concerning my health, I now feel the sky's the limit.

Pain and limited mobility

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

I had long standing pain and limited mobility in my right shoulder and neck, which had just been worsened by pulling the muscle in this area. Although I had had the long term pain and frustration with limited mobility and postural alignment during my yoga practice, it was the increased discomfort that led me to seek treatment. After the first treatment I had greater mobility and the pain returned to its usual level. After the next two treatments I noticed much more mobility and a positive change in my posture. I found that this continued to improve after the treatment.

Chronic neck and lower back pain

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

I have been aware of Bowen for many years but it was not until I met Catherine that I actually experienced it. I am a massage therapist and have had many, many different kinds of treatments over the 27 years I have been working. Bowen was totally different, very simple and very effective. At first it was odd that Catherine only seemed to do a very small technique on me and then leave the room, to return a few minutes later to do another small technique. This process goes on for the full hour. What I came to realize and very much appreciate was that the healing happens in my own body when the therapist is not in the room - unlike any other treatment I have received. Once I got used to this idea I totally loved it. Something very profound happens and my body is able to correct, balance and heal in the way it needs to. It is unbelievably relaxing – so deep as to feel like coming home, like having had 10 hours sleep, like feeling totally supported and held in a way that is perfect just for me. I came to Catherine with chronic neck and lower back pain. Within three session the neck pain has totally gone and my lower back pain (which I have had for 30 odd years) very rarely troubles me now. I would highly recommend Catherine and Bowen to anyone with pain or exhaustion.
