What complaint(s) or symptom(s) brought you to the Bowen Technique:
I have congenital spinal abnormalities, a fused lumbar spine and problems with my feet and had been suffering ongoing pain in my neck, shoulders, back and feet which had been exacerbated by a couple of falls earlier in the year.
How did your complaint(s)/symptom(s) affect you?:
It was becoming increasingly difficult and painful to do even the simplest of activities including sitting, walking, lying down. My concentration and mood were also affected.
What activities have you been able to resume since receiving Bowen sessions? How has your life been improved?:
Although I will always have problems with my spine, my posture and gait, I have found that since having Bowen sessions pain in my feet has significantly reduced so it has become easier getting out of bed and walking around. The pain in my lumbar spine has almost gone and the tension in my neck and shoulders has significantly reduced.
How many sessions have you received (and how often)?:
I attended three sessions over three weeks.
Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):
The Bowen Therapy is a much gentler therapy than others I have undergone in the past which is one of the reasons it appealed to me. After the first week the pain in my feet had reduced so that it became noticeably easier to stand after sitting or lying down. By the second session the pain in my lumbar spine had also reduced so that sitting, standing and walking became less challenging. The third session has helped alleviate the pain in my shoulders. I feel that without these sessions it would have only been a matter of time before I became immobile. After each session I feel the benefits not only physically, but also mentally.
I would be happy to recommend Bowen Therapy to others.
