The Bowen Technique
Please find testimonials from my Bowen clients below, followed by a description of Bowen:
Having suffered with severe Migraines for many months a friend recommended having some Bowen treatment, which had worked for her Migraines. I thought I would give it a try as I had nothing to loose. I was very surprised, as I didn’t think the treatment would work as well as it has. I initially had 3 treatments over a 3-week period and now I have a treatment every six weeks. Since starting with Bowen approximately 3 years ago I have been Migraine free.
I had suffered from Migraine for all my adulthood and had tried many things to alleviate them, both from the mainstream and alternative medical camps. I can honestly say that the Bowen treatment from Lesley has changed my life, and I now feel confident in planning events without the fear of a headache spoiling the enjoyment. I have introduced fellow sufferers and they too have found relief.
Following a car accident in 2001 I developed a condition called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, which was centred in my right leg. This resulted in my being in a wheelchair for most outdoor activities, or on crutches whenever I needed to go out of the house. The pain was excruciating and I was on a large number of drugs, along with regular visits to the hospital for treatment.
I'm Chloe I am 20years old and have been attending Bowen sessions with Lesley from being 18. I have been a sufferer of migranes since I was 8 years old. When I had a migraine I had vision loss, nausea and one side of my body goes numb and this can last for hours. I used to suffer with migraines weekly and found it very restricting, having many days off work due to my vision being effected during a migraine, missing occassions which I had looked forward too etc I owe many thanks to Lesley for the treatment, I can go a whole month with no migraines and it has only been odd months when I have had a migraine. I feel more confident when going away on holiday or for a weekend that I will be fine, I go to work knowing I will not have to leave due to a migraine, and day to day I dont live in fear of having a migraine anymore. I am only sorry I didn't know about the treatment sooner, I would recommend it to anybody as I can not imagine suffering the way I did again!
A Bowen treatment affects the body in ways that promote healing, pain relief and recovery of energy. The experience of the treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing. The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise points on the body to make rolling type moves which aim to disturb the muscles, soft tissue and energy within the body. During the treatment there are periods in which the client is left resting to allow the body to absorb the gentle moves that have been performed. This gives the body time to make the subtle & fine adjustments which help relieve tension, reduce pain & initiate the healing process. Bowen can safely treat common problems such as back & neck pains, knee problems, sports injuries, RSI, frozen shoulder, headaches, migraine etc. Initially 2-3 treatments are required over a period of two weeks & then maintenance 2-4 times a year or tailoring to the individuals needs.
