Feb 2016 Attended a 1 day Homoeopathy course. It is important to appreciate the significant difference between Acute and Chronic conditions. Chronic conditions are defined as symptoms that occur for a period lasting longer than 3 months. In dealing with Chronic conditions, homoeopathy requires a detailed appraisal of the client in order to decide upon the appropriate treatment course for each individual. However this Course focused on short term 'Acute Pain' issues – discussing natural products that can alleviate such symptoms. t is worth noting that in my Bowen clinic, the vast majority of clients report Chronic conditions (over 3 months duration) and I too undertake a comprehensive assessment to fully appreciate their condition(s). This allows me to determine the amount of Bowen Work to apply. There is a saying in Bowen “Less is more” Bowen is a holistic technique treating the whole body, not just the apparent source of the pain and determining the amount of procedures to apply is key to the success of the treatment.
