Because many people still do not know what Bowen Therapy is, I’m often asked the question: Why did you become a ‘Bowen Therapist’? – it seems so obscure a Therapy.
Well – I hadn’t heard of it either until about 15 years ago.
Serrena, my wife, sought out and tried many alternative treatments to help alleviate her pain without the use of heavy pain killers and associated drugs. She was in constant pain and suffering from: headaches, jaw-aches (TMJ), neck-aches, backaches and scoliosis which made her too delicate to exercise without throwing ‘something out’ and causing pain and discomfort for weeks or even months at a time.
Her headaches were virtually constant and her jaw problems were exacerbated by our 3 year old son rounding the corner and slamming straight into the side of Serrena’s jaw while she was picking up toys from the floor. Ouch!
While we understand that great health requires a multi-pronged approach, the results from her Bowen treatments were astounding!
Within the first 2 weeks Serrena saw significant reduction in all areas of her concern. Because she had these conditions for quite a number of years, it was going to take a number of regular treatments for her body to gather it’s ‘momentum’ from the Bowen and keep her stable allowing her to lead a normal active lifestyle.
Serrena has only required maintenance Bowen treatments for many years now – every 1 – 3 months. She feels fantastic after each 60 minute treatment and naturally – loves being pain free!
One amazing additional outcome, and the reason I decided to study this fantastic modality, has been that – a few years ago – the Doctor’s X Ray report showed that she has “no noticeable scoliosis”.
Wow – we didn’t expect that !
The Bowen had been assisting Serrena’s body to keep all it’s muscles in the right position and thus ‘retrain’ the spine to fall back into healthy alignment. She is now 1.5 cm taller than her drivers license states!
For the past year Serrena has been able to do weight training and cardio 3 times a week each without any of those earlier ‘delicate injuries’. She is now wanting new clothes. Mmmm.
I guess I was just ‘blown away’ at the power and potential that Bowen offers everyone in our earth wide community. We are all part of the human family and I love to contribute positive things to people lives.
This is why I am a Bowen Therapist.
