"In just a few sessions I was able to see strong results that have stayed with me."
I had never heard of Bowen until it was suggested to me at a time when my health was causing me a lot of stress and dead ends with traditional medicine. I was skeptical as I had tried various other forms of alternative medicine and therapy with little result. I found to my surprise that Bowen was not only extremely gentle and relaxing, but worked surprisingly fast to help resolve my issues. In just a few sessions I was able to see strong results that have stayed with me. Not only that, but Bowen worked well for my nine year old who was having abdominal migraines hat would not respond well to conventional treatments. It offered her immediate relief in one session. I highly recommend Bowen for a refreshingly simple and non-invasive approach to wellness. - SG, Kennebunkport
"I would recommend Bowen therapy for anyone who has suffered a concussion"
I had bowenwork done on my 12yr old son after he suffered concussion and was still experiencing severe symptoms a couple of weeks out. On the day [of his appointment], he was incredibly nauseous and had a bad headache. He felt so sick, he couldn't eat or really drink anything and didn't want to talk to anyone..... After a short session he responded very well. He fell sound asleep after the session and woke up feeling much better. His nausea and headache had dissipated dramatically and he was able to talk, eat and drink... I feel that Bowen therapy definitely jump-started his healing process. I can't thank [the team] enough. I would definitely recommend Bowen therapy for anyone who has suffered a concussion. - HB, Kennebunkport
"Chronic pain for over a decade..."
After suffering chronic pain for over a decade from a head-on car accident by a drunk driver, I finally found some relief from Bowen. My chronic muscle spasms, fatigue and dizziness have all shown marked improvement since getting treated by the Bowen team.. My general state of wellbeing has greatly improved and I can't recommend it enough. Thank you! - SL, Cape Porpoise
"You've got the magic touch!"
You've got the magic touch in those fingers! You've healed my knee, helped my children through their concussions and broken bones, and you consistently provide a restful, yet rejuvenating, whole body experience. Thank you! - LJ, Kennebunkport
"Bowenwork has been a Godsend for me."
Bowenwork has been a Godsend for me... I have been struggling with chronic pain over the past 16 years due to a neurological disorder that causes my muscles to spasm and contract throughout my body, called Dystonia. I have tried many therapies over the years and nothing has really helped me until now. My very first session was really quite amazing... it was gentle but VERY effective! I felt such a release in my body and a sense of calm and relaxation.... As I move forward in the process of my healing, I will continue to trust Bowenwork to help me at a pace that is best for me. - CS, York
"I left feeling a centered calmness not known for YEARS."
Exhausted, depleted, stiff, anxious, sore. To say I was seeking out refuge from my symptoms is an understatement. Cranial sacral, Dr. S, reiki, polarity, Chinese medicine, diet changes, exercise, sunshine, research, fasts. YUP, tried them all and more. Most helped but eventually the symptoms returned. Went to a wellness center's open house and on the walls were sign-up sheets for various body works. Being late all were filled except for Bowen - only one space left for the very end of the evening - 15 minutes, that's all I get. "Okay" I said, scribbled my name on the last blank line, slid down the wall and sat outside the door waiting, reading the description.
That first treatment lasted 10 minutes. In the first 5, my flight-fight-flee response to life subsided. I could breathe deeply. The voices raging inside my head grew quiet. The stiffness became fluid. I left feeling a centered calmness not known for YEARS. The next day I called for an appointment. With each consecutive treatment not only did my physical self noticeably begin healing but my mood lifted, and my energy raised a bar above ground level. "Finally" I said.
After each session my body forced rest, a settling down, settling in. Over the course of several days I found myself maintaining longer runs, longer work days, evenings out, early morning bike rides pain free - physically and emotionally. Living became easier. "Thank you" I said. - WJ, Biddeford
"After first session, my breathing expanded, rash began to quiet, and the pain was diminished."
When I had a painful rash break out over my rib cage, I scheduled a Bowen session, not knowing what to do or whether my symptoms might be connected to Shingles. Before the first session, I had a painful, itchy burning rash, restricted breathing and overall discomfort throughout my body. After this first session, my breathing expanded, rash began to quiet, and the pain was diminished. I felt peaceful, clear minded and rested. Following my 2nd session a week later, the scaly rash, pain and inflammation continued to improve and abate significantly. The pain was much diminished and as my chest/breathing became more effortless, I reduced the use of my inhalers as well. Post third session I decided to continue regular Bowen sessions to address the deeper, more long standing chronic health concerns - asthma, sleep irregularity, digestive concerns, and several long term chronic issues I manage. It is my goal that as my body responds to the healing triggered by the Bowenwork, I will be able to wean off my medications." - SP, Dover
"Bowenwork provides a great whole body experience that for me also resulted in better coping and grounding"
Initially I started Bowenwork to help with very bad neck pain. Any head movement was extremely painful. After three [Bowen] sessions it was much, much better! I was also sleeping better too. Results were fabulous so I continued Bowenwork to address other issues I was having with digestion, asthma and chronic shoulder pain. Having been told I would need to be on stomach meds for the rest of my life, I'm so glad to say that with Bowen and nutrition coaching, I am stomach med free! The shoulder pain I had for years is now gone and my asthma is finally in control. Bowenwork provides a great whole body experience that for me also resulted in better coping and grounding.
My kids have had great results with Bowenwork as well! They love the calming effect it has. My son had knee issues from playing soccer and with just a few Bowen sessions they are gone and have stayed gone. He also has Lyme disease and suffered a concussion which Bowen was able to successfully help him with. Having a life without headaches makes a huge difference! - T, S Berwick
"So not what I expected!"
As a Registered Nurse I had very little understanding of the many holistic approaches to managing pain and chronic disease. Recently during a move, I injured my spine (L4 and L5) ruptured. I was prescribed pain meds and physical therapy, encouraged to have cortisone injections which I did not accept, and had some success but quickly slid back to the crippling shooting nerve pain with even the slightest overwork. I have suffered with back pain since I was 19 and just learned to live with it, like the majority of people do, and over time the chronic pain has spread. It affects every part of your daily life!
[My friend] gently encouraged me to just try Bowenwork. I was so frustrated and desperate that I thought “what have I got to lose at this point?!” So not what I expected! Quiet, respectful, gentle pressure and patterning release with rest in between allowing the body/nervous system to process and correct. I honestly thought, “Well, that was relaxing…” but it felt like nothing and I doubted anything would come of it. I went to bed and when I woke up I was amazed…truly in disbelief that my pain – even the chronic neck and back pain I wake with every morning – it was gone!
Drinking lots of water, listening to my body and its subtle cues, and walking supported the Bowen sessions. A few weeks later I had another session to address other aches or concerns that arose during the week. [The therapist] listened to everything I shared and then applied the techniques. Some of the moves were different, and sometimes the results vary, but it all was gently healing so much more than just my chronic pain. All I can say is it worked for me in a profound way! Definitely worth trying and trusting the process... -ST-L, New Hampshire
