If you have back pain, sciatica, stiff neck and shoulders or TMJ problems this treatment can also help you. This treatment works with the autonomic nervous system (ANS), where self-healing takes place. The ANS can switch from sympathetic to parasympathetic, enabling release of endorphins. This, in turn, can affect the nervous, immune and digestive systems, thus: • Relieve tension and eases stiffness • Increase flexibility and suppleness • Relax soft tissue and fascia • Alleviate pain through endorphin release • Increase range of movement • Reduces the onset of muscular fatigue • Increased blood circulation, distributing oxygen and nutrients • Stimulates the lymphatic system; helping to remove toxins which reduces soft tissue swellings
The FIRST session of Bowen can leave you with such an amazing feeling of well-being and relief that it can sometimes result in an emotional release.
Bowen is the UK’s fastest growing complementary therapy because of its remarkable record of success, having been proven time and again by successful treatments, it is quickly growing in popularity.
Like many practitioners, my interest in the therapy was sparked after receiving a treatment by my friend, Patrick Mohan (based in Burnham-on-Sea), which brought me immediate relief from pain.
I am a full member of The Bowen Therapy Professional AssociationHaving had successful case studies from my time as a student, I have continued to achieve great results from my time as a practitioner. Please see the reviews and testimonials section.
I work from my home in Marlborough with treatment rooms in both Newbury and Marlborough. I am also happy to do home visits, within a certain distance, as I have a travel couch.
“felt great from the first treatment - much more awake and with more energy. I noticed a real change in my right shoulder. I had more movement range and when sat at my desk did not hunch as much. Also noted a much stronger feeling in my lower back (almost as if a bandage had been put on) I normally have back pain in the morning when I wake up this was not the case also if I jar my back it can go into a spasm later the same day and result in heavy medicine use to relieve the pain but this did not happen after the second treatment. Overall, I stood much straighter and had much more energy”.
“After the first treatment he felt much more relaxed under saddle and collected behind and went into a really nice outline soft in the hand with very little pressure from me. Unfortunately he then had his fall between treatment 2 and 3 even with his lameness he seemed more relaxed and I think the treatment helped speed up his recovery as the swelling and strain on his tendons and ligament in his pelvis and sacroiliac joint was so deep the treatments helped reduce the inflammation. A week after the last treatment the vet came again and was pleased with his progress but as he was still slightly dragging his right hind toe we decided to medicate the SI joint. He is continuing his rehab and is due to start his trot work tomorrow”.
“I could not believe I stood there pain-free after a 45 minute treatment, having been unable to walk in properly because of back pain. I said to Maggie at the time, it was a miracle!!..
After seeing Maggie 3 times I had such an amazing feeling of wellbeing that, after consulting my doctor, I reduced my anti-depressant by half! Such a relaxing, yet uplifting therapy.
The hoof is a neurosensory organ. The development of the back of the hoof is essential to hoof function.
The horse owner realise the importance of horses’ hooves and we all know the age old saying ‘no hoof, no horse’. There are extremely important factors to bear in mind when carrying out health checks on the hoof; the hoof wall, sole, frog and digital cushion all need regular checks. The blood flow with Bowen is increased throughout the body which means that more blood reaches the hooves, taking with it vital nutrients and oxygen; it also takes away toxins. Toxins cause inflammation – inflammation is infection.
Mentioned in both ‘Your Horse’ and ‘Horse & Rider’ magazines, Equine Bowen Therapy is rapidly becoming the riders’ choice as an effective therapy for all horses.
