Feel Bowen use Bowen Therapy to treat people suffering from Shoulder discomfort, tenderness and pain. Problems with the shoulders can be triggered for a number of reasons and the effects can be devastating to their sufferers.
The Bowen Technique was pioneered by Thomas Ambrose Bowen, born in Geelong, Australia almost 100 years ago. He used his thumbs and fingers on specific points on the body to make gently rolling moves, which aim to disturb the muscles, tendons, soft tissue and energy within the body. The treatment is performed by applying gentle pressure which together sequence into ‘procedures’ that work on a deep, dynamic and often profound level. Feel Bowen’s shoulder treatments rebalance the body, bringing stability to the nervous system thus relieving clients of pain and distress.
I visited Helen for Bowen Therapy as I had read that it may help with my shoulder rotator cuff injury. I had previously visited an Osteopath on 3 occasions but did not feel that this was improving matters. The session with Helen was very pleasant and she was thorough and generous with her time. Following the session I made a conscious effort to take it easy apart from regular walking and drinking plenty of water, as instructed. The session had a calming and balancing effect on me and I was craving extra water for about 3 weeks!
The result was very good in that in the months following I have only used pain killers for the shoulder on 1 or 2 occasions. It is vastly improved. Before I visited Helen I was applying topical cream and taking oral pain killers 3 times a day. I have saved a fortune in Voltarol, way more than the price of the session with Helen.
Another benefit was that my legs felt a lot 'looser' and walking was distinctly easier. At age 51 I felt more like 35 again.
I have just made another appointment and am looking forward to further improvements.
