So as many of you who have come to clinic now know, often where you feel the pain is often not the root cause and the pain is being felt because of an issue in a completely different area of your body.
This does not have to be structural or muscular. Do you have a scar that could be the cause of your pain?

A baby/child Bowen treatment is a very gentle experience. Treatment can be on the couch, a chair, parent’s lap or even playing with toys on the floor and generally take around 15-20 minutes.
