Personal Testimonials - Back Issues (II)
"To Whom it may Concern
My experience with the Bowen technique has started when I mentioned my back pain to Steve and he offered his help some 18months ago . That time I didn’t know anything about this therapy but Steve was very helpful and gave me a leaflet so I could read about it.
I was asked to lie face down on a couch where I was covered in a nice warm towel.
Steve did small movements mainly on my back and then left the room for few minutes. After the first session, following his instruction I felt a relief just after a terrible night which I spent awaken and in pain. However, from the next morning I felt significantly better. I needed two more treatments and found that my body has changed and rebalanced and even I spent almost all day in front of a computer the pain did not come back. I didn’t need to change my life, just had to drink more water than usual and continue with my usual daily routine.
I was lucky enough to get a second chance to be treated when I got pregnant. Bowen was an ideal therapy during my pregnancy, had a session almost every week from the 6th month. My baby was in a bad posture with his back to my back and often caused a terrible pain. I knew he had to turn to have an easier labour.
Steve provided some articles on treatment during pregnancy and we continued the therapy which helped me to maintain my work and be fit till the end of my pregnancy, by maintaining my flexibility so much.
It helped me not just with my backache, but with my pelvic pain as well (which was at least as bad and painful during the last month.)
For me it was a great experience because, it was painless, fast, effective and extremely relaxing."

"I had suffered from lower back pain from driving for more than 5 years when i heard about Bowen Treatment. After just 3 sessions with Steve the pain had gone such that i could sit at my desk or in the car for much longer periods than before. It is now 6 months later and thankfully the pain has not returned." Andy. M. July 2010
"Just a brief note to say thanks for the Bowen Therapy. Needless to say I was and still am the biggest sceptic, but whether I understand how it works or not , it really does have an effect! I had been suffering from lower back problems for roughly 7 years now and although your initial focus was spent on alleviating the symptoms local to that area, the treatment also improved the discomfort i was feeling in my right knee (caused by an earlier cycling accident). I would recommend this gentle but effective form of treatment". Andrew M. July 10
"I am amazed at the results that have been achieved from my Bowen Sessions. I came with recurring lower back pain which I have had for several years. After the first session I could tell it was having an effect on my body, and not just in the area that i highlighted had a problem. You could tell it was taking effect a few days afterwards. I found the treatment unobtrusive and relaxi. Unlike massage where the effects of the treatment wear off after a few days , I have found that the positive results still remain. I have not had any further back pain since my first session which was iover 4 months ago". Sarah C. July 2010
