What complaint(s) or symptom(s) brought you to the Bowen Technique:

Arthritic knee (and friend's recommendation. Long term devotee but never really able to explain it!). Striving for a gentle mitigating therapy.

How did your complaint(s)/symptom(s) affect you?:

Unpredictable but gradually getting more of a pain grip. Repetitive stairs increasingly challenging and actively trying to avoid strenuous walking, certain things in the gym and packed up my long term go to exercise, Pilates.

What activities have you been able to resume since receiving Bowen sessions? How has your life been improved?:

Over a period of time I have seen a gradual improvement. At the very least, combined with other things, a better support system and faster recovery when knee is sore. Not yet a cure but think that is unrealistic but some good results - positivity physically and mentally.

How many sessions have you received (and how often)?:

Initially 3 in the quick succession recommended, and since then on average once a month, or as needed when my knee is playing up.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

Overall extremely positive. Understand more or less how it works, which it does, and am enthusiastic and open to its good effects. I enjoy the sessions and learning / feeling how it words and feel the benefit of this gentle effective therapy. Myriam is fantastic and I highly recommend her. My recovery mechanisms have been improved. And my knee feels stronger and generally better. Footnote. Today something astonishing happened. A big unexpected experience during a session, of my body shaking off tightness and tension (literally) and seemingly rebooting itself. Body and knee felt good - lighter, looser, during and after. Let's see!

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

My right knee had caused me problems for many years, especially when weather turned damp. I took painkillers until someone suggested Bowen treatment. I thought I'd try it as nothing else seemed to ease the pain. I had 2 treatments and have not suffered with any pain since. It also appears I have got rid of a verucca on the same side foot which I had tried treating with all sorts of creams etc. to no avail for many years. Neither symptom – knee pain or verucca - have come back. I would recommend trying this treatment as I was so impressed with the outcome.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

I had severe knee pain which was diagnosed as torn cartilage. After just one Bowen session I was walking differently, which took the pressure off the injury. The pain was reduced greatly, giving the cartilage time to heal naturally. I couldn't believe how it changed my gait so instantly. I would certainly recommend Bowen therapy.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

As a result of a rugby injury I had to have an operation on my knee. After having Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction I received Bowen treatments which greatly accelerated my recovery. In fact I kept in touch with another man who had the exact same operation on the same day as me and his recovery time was far longer than mine. Since this course of treatment I have also had several others to help with a hamstring problem and this has also been a huge success.

Knee pain

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

I fell down three times and did not realise I had hurt my knee. When I tried to kneel on my knees, something gave way and I had excruciating pain and found it very difficult to walk. This happened in November 2009. I started Bowen treatment in Feb 2010 and this treatment has made a tremendous difference. I had regular weekly treatments which has been so beneficial. I am nearly 100% better now. I have recommended this treatment to many people after my experience.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

My knee had been causing pain whenever I went running; it hurt from the first step I took and I was beginning to think I would have to stop. I mentioned it to by Bowen therapist who was treating me for another stress related problems. She included my knee as part of the treatment. The pain completely went away after 2-3 sessions and, despite increasing my running, has not returned. In addition to this the other symptoms I had were improved after 3-4 treatments leaving me feeling more relaxed, energetic and able to cope with the things around me that had been causing problems.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

I came for treatment having had pain and restricted movement in my knees and lower back for some time. The pain in left knee had been severe for almost a year. After the first treatment the pain was much reduced and my movement was freer. I was able to enjoy swimming and waking with my dogs which I had only been able to do very occasionally. Just before seeking treatment I did start a course of painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs prescribed by my GP, but I believe these alone would not have brought about such improvement.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

A few years ago I had not heard of Bowen therapy. Then a friend who was having neck problem went to a Bowen therapist for a few weeks and was cured. So when I was diagnosed with arthritis in my hips and knees she recommended having Bowen treatment. So I have a therapist called Judith who has been great and helped me enormously, not only with the therapy, but other advice for wellbeing. My wife now has treatment for similar problems. We can't thank Judith and the Bowen therapy enough. She visits us every month and we always fell better for it.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

I had been having joint pains on and off in my knees and hips since the birth of my second child and was recommended Bowen therapy by a friend who had been successfully treated with this therapy for chronic back pain. I had three sessions of the treatment and have rarely been troubled since. I also had Bowen therapy for muscles which had seized up in my back and ribs and which several weeks of pain medication and topical gel had failed to relieve. The Bowen treatment worked wonderfully for this too.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

I had for several years pain and swelling in my right knee exacerbated when taking exercise i.e. walking, golf. I went for treatment to a Bowen therapist who after only one treatment reduced the swelling and after several treatments improved my quality of life enabling me to play 18 holes of golf again. I continued having regular visits every six weeks or so to keep my leg supple and allowing me to lead a full life. After experiencing limited right arm movement and shoulder pain I went to the same Bowen therapist where my arm was released; after several sessions I was able to freely move my arm right across my chest and down my back.

Knee & Back pain

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

My knee was very painful & restricted many things I had been used to doing including aerobics class, some gardening etc. Most of the time I have fully resumed all activities, but have the odd "blip". I have been amazed at the improvement on my joints, what I can achieve and almost pain free the majority of the time. I can do some things I haven't done for many years. I cannot believe the vast improvement with 3 sessions. I have had a top up a couple of months down the line to make sure of my freedom to move with ease. 30th August 2011 Orthopaedic Department Thank you for referring this patient whom I saw on behalf of Mr L. Patient has been referred for her right knee problem. Ms S tells me that she had pain in the right knee over the years but recently this has all improved after she had Bowen treatment. Pain before this treatment was at night and on walking and furthermore there was giving way. Patient denies any pain in the groin. She does experience pain, and she points to the lateral side of the pelvis, radiating down to just proximal to the knee. There are no abnormal sensations in the feet. On examination today right knee is cool and dry. There is full range of movement. There is no pain. No major instability. Normal patella reflexes, weak Achilles reflex left and absent Achilles reflex right. Straight leg raising while sitting with dorsiflexion of foot; no pain. Normal sensation and power in the feet. Hip movements are normal. X-rays of her right knee from June this year show minimal degenerate changes medial and patella-femoral. I congratulated patient on the good results of her Bowen treatment and have told her that she is far too good to consider joint replacement surgery. I have not made a further follow up appointment. Yours sincerely Mr R L Associate Specialist Surgeon in Orthopaedics

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

When you do Bowen on my knee it feels nice and warm and makes my fingers tingle. I enjoy you coming to see me and you make me laugh. After Bowen, I go out for a walk to keep my knee fit. It makes me feel relaxed and happy. Thank you very much. My 52 year old daughter lives at home with me. With learning difficulties, chronic anxiety and chronic obsessive compulsive disorder, life for her, and for me, is very difficult. A great fear and distrust of all medical personnel or therapists in general it was a miracle that she agreed to have Bowen technique with Kathryn having already met her previously. She really enjoys the sessions, is much more relaxed and happy and the obsessive behaviour is slowly and steadily improving. A knee injury sustained in a dancing club is also much improved – and the reason she agreed to the treatment, but the improvement has been much more far reaching.
