Bowen Therapy

Thanks to PMR Pro and all those others who advocated Bowen Therapy for myofascial pain. It works! Last week I had a third appointment, having felt better and then worse again. But this time The pain quite quickly receded and although there are still some residual twinges, I don't feel dependent on my walking stick this week. I will see my therapist again next week for a 'top up'.

Yes, it is brilliant and so relaxing and the best thing about trying it, is that if you don't feel any benefit after three one hour sessions the Bowen Therapist tells you.

They are so honest.

I still go at three of six months intervals for a booster session and not only did I get rid of my walking stick, it got me out of my wheelchair.


I will keep telling people about Bowen. My rheumatologist had suggested crutches but then my therapist did a piriformis procedure which put me back on my feet.

Good luck with your practice.

There is a thread on here where I was absolutely slated for advocating it - by a member of the GP community. We might as well dance naked under the moon we were told!

There were a LOT of responses from members who have found it helps - not with the PMR itself but with the "add-ons" - so we will continue suggesting it!
