I decided to try Bowen Therapy, as it was recommended here, and I hoped it might speed up recovery. Ive had PMR for 2 years and gradually reduced to 8.5mg, definitely feeling I was improving. The Bowen therapist advised me that I might feel worse initially - she was not wrong! The second treatment she said I was very sensitive and gave me a lighter session. However I am even worse (though not a lot), a real flare up now, even back to the stiff neck and walking with great difficulty.
I could up my steroids, but am reluctant to do so as I have worked so hard to get down to this level, and also we wont be able to assess whether the Bowen Therapy has helped or not.
And/or I could cut my losses and abandon the Bowen, but it could help in the longer run and in spite of the above I do have a good feeling about it.
Any advice, especially from anyone who has tried Bowen, would be welcome.
