S, a 30 year old female, who was living with a number of conditions including Rheumatoid Arthritis, IBS and Fibromyalgia.
She spent most of everyday in pain, with only the location and amount varying. Sleep was often limited to less than 3 hours a night and she was only able to work in a part time position.
After her first treatment S felt less anxious about everything, was sleeping more through the night and was able to stand for periods of time without having pins and needles in the legs and feet.
After her second treatment S had halved the number of painkillers she was needing to take and family members had noticed a large improvement in her both physically and mentally.
After her third treatment, S had worked nearly double her normal working hours and had managed to maintain the lower level of pain relief.
After her fourth treatment she said………..
“This week I have accomplished two things that at one point recently after finally, officially being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, I thought I might never be able to do again. Yesterday I did a whole session at the gym, including cardio and weights, and today I went for a jog/powerwalk of about 5 miles. This amazing transformation has only been possible due to Bowen Therapy.
When I think that only a few weeks ago a brisk walk would have me puffing and panting, and I would be in pain after being on my feet for only a few minutes, plus most days I struggled to get out of bed due to the pain and stiffness I was experiencing. I was also constantly being pumped full of painkillers, anti-inflammatory medication and anxiety pills just to get through a 5 hour shift at work. All I can say is a massive ‘Thank you’ to this lovely lady for giving me my life back! Thank you Jules x” S Reynolds
P, a bricklayer, contacted me after he had been suffering with sciatica type symptoms for the previous 3 to 4 months. He was experiencing pain in his lower back and pain and a burning sensation in his gluteal muscles (bottom) that radiated down both legs to his feet, and increased during the course of the day (not helped by the physical nature of his job). He was also experiencing occasional pins and needles in his legs and feet.
The pain and symptoms had been getting worse over the weeks, and with a holiday booked to start in a few weeks time, P contacted me to see if Bowen therapy could help him.
When P returned for his second treatment, a week after his first, he had nearly forgotten about the sciatica. He had only had a few twinges that had just started that day. When he had the pain it was also only located in his gluteal muscles and no longer radiated down his legs.
After his second treatment, P said he had no pain at all and only a sense of tightness down the back of both legs.
After his third treatment P went on holiday and on his return reported that he had enjoyed a pain free holiday and had returned back to his physical job of bricklaying and was still enjoying being pain free.
“I first heard about Bowen Therapy from my son, who had googled the best treatment for sciatica. I then searched for a therapist in my area and discovered Jules and The Norfolk Bowen Therapy Clinic. I was very surprised how gentle and relaxing the treatment was. Two days after my first treatment I was almost pain free apart from a few twinges. With each session I have improved and have had a sense of well-being after each visit. I have been so impressed with the results that I have now recommended 3 members of my family to Jules”. P Adams
B had suffered with back pain caused by the physical nature of his job for 41 years and when he came to see me, despite being on pain killers and heat patches, was off work due to his back pain. The day after the first treatment B woke pain free and returned straight back to work. As well as the improvement to his back B also reported feeling calmer in himself. After his second treatment B was able to put his own socks on, something he had not managed to do for a long time. He remained pain free and said ‘I have my life back, I feel so sharp!’
B had three Bowen sessions in total and two months on is still pain free and back enjoying life! “Bowen therapy has made my life so much better after years of back problems due to my work, also my sleeping has been so much better which means I feel full of life again plus no more heat pads and tablets every four hours. Thank you Bowen therapy and thank you Jules!” B Rix
At the age of 39 M had been told by his Doctor that his frozen shoulder was down to old age! The initial consultation showed M was suffering from restriction in the range of movement of his left shoulder, unable to raise his arm above shoulder height. After three weekly treatments, full range of pain free movement had been restored and M could happily raise his arm up to his ear.
“After years of pain and discomfort with my shoulder, with many unsuccessful visits to my GP, chiropractors and deep tissues massages, all to no avail, I sceptically tried Bowen and after only the first sessions pain dramatically reduced, leading to more movement and after the course of three treatments Bowen has fixed me!! Three session of Bowen has done what eight years of seeing these different people has failed to do. No pain and full range of movement has returned. I am extremely impressed and highly recommend Jules to anyone“. M Service
A was recommended to come and see me by another client. 25 years ago A was diagnosed with mild M.S. which mainly affected her legs and energy levels. 2 years ago she also started suffering from migraines. She would have a migraine every 2 weeks that would last for 3 days. After her first treatment A noticed a huge difference in how she was walking and her ‘wobbly’ legs felt much straighter. She had also experienced a migraine but it was only mild and had only lasted 1 day. After her third treatment A had also noted an improvement in her energy levels and was no longer as tired during the day. After her fifth treatment A went 10 weeks migraine free. Arriving for her sixth treatment (after a break) with a ‘cracking migraine’ which disappeared after treatment.
“I began to have migraines every 2 weeks and they would last for 3 days. I started my sessions with Jules and immediately saw improvements. The migraines became much less frequent and were a lot more manageable. My daughter also suffers from migraines that would affect her every 3 weeks. She started at 2 weeks old having them and she is now 8. We started her with Bowens and she is sometimes going 7 weeks without any problems. Recently I had a relapse of my M.S. and again after visiting Jules, I found that I could walk much better and had more energy. I cannot begin to explain how brilliant the results with Bowens can be, and consequently I have recommended Jules to lots of friends
Thank you Jules for what you have achieved with both my daughter and myself.” A Brown
Baby W, a 3 week old baby, had been suffering with in his Mother’s words “the most dreadful colic” virtually since birth resulting in her being up with him literally all night. After just one treatment improvement was seen and after 4 days I received this message from Baby W’s relieved Mother…..
“Well what a dramatic change! Wilf is like a different baby! Since the treatment he had had less and less colic and last night he didn’t seem to suffer at all! Amazing! Thank you so much Jules, you really are a life saver! I feel like a different person too! Brilliant results xxxx“. Mother
Child A, a 10 year old girl, was suffering from anger issues, which the child herself described as “uncontrollable anger in her head”. Her family had taken steps to support her during these outbursts which included a journal to write down her thoughts and also a ‘punch cushion’. After the first treatment there was a reduction in the anger seen by both mother and felt by the child. Following a further two treatments the child was no longer feeling the unexplained anger. She was also concentrating better at school (noticed by her teachers), and was waking in the morning feeling happy and energised.
“The change in my daughter after one treatment was quite noticeable, she was a lot calmer, I cannot recommend this treatment highly enough for both children and adults. It has made a great difference to my daughter which equals a happy mum!” Mother
S is a full time wheelchair user who has Spina Bifida, congenital scoliosis and Hydrocephalus. S woke daily with painful leg spasms that would last 20 minutes (until medication took effect), and it would take a further 10 -15 minutes before she felt able to get out of bed. As well as the spasms, she also suffered from poor circulation, and an ache that increased throughout the day from spending the majority of the day sat in one position in her chair.
After four weekly treatments, S had a visable improvement in the circulation in her legs, substantial reduction to her back ache as she was now sitting much straighter and more upright in her chair and almost total elimination of her leg spasms which meant she was now able to get out of bed immediately in the mornings.
“I am a full-time wheelchair user and spend a lot of my time in my chair, this causes my muscles to ache from being constantly in one position. I have leg spasms so this also makes my muscles ache and makes it difficult to self-transfer myself out of my wheelchair. Since my very first Bowen session the aches in my back improved a great deal and most of all it reduced my leg spasms. The elimination of my leg spasms has made life so much easier, it has made me feel better in myself as the spasms were so draining. I can move easier in general but especially getting out of bed in the morning and in and out of my wheelchair. Bowen has also made my daily exercises much easier and less painful to do. I highly recommend Norfolk Bowen Therapy!” S Stuart
R was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2005 which as well as the physical pain, she suffered with fatigue and complete energy ‘crashes’. After only one treatment she was walking straighter and feeling more balanced with a large reduction in pain levels. Following another two treatments R reported she was free of pain and was no longer suffering from the fatigue or energy crashes.
“I have had rheumatoid arthritis since 2005, during that time I have tried various massage therapists, chiropractors and another Bowen therapist, each has given me short term relief. I was first treated by Jules as one of her early case studies in November 2012. One of the areas she treated was my left foot. The rheumatoid first started here and I haven’t been able to walk properly on the ball of that foot since 2005. After one treatment I was able to stand on the ball of my foot without pain, and this is still the case 7 months later. Because of Jules I can now walk properly and not on the edge of my feet. I’ve been on maximum dosage of anti-inflammatories since 2005 and every time I’ve tried to reduce the dosage I’ve ended up in agony. But for the last 3 months I haven’t had to take any.
Jules treated me after I’d twisted my back by over-doing it; painkillers weren’t taking the pain away. I hobbled in to see her and walked out normally.
Will always recommend her to anyone.” R Hume
B is a semi-professional footballer who had suffered with hamstring issues for a number of years. After a course of three treatments, hamstring flexibility had increased by over 30 degrees, match fitness and performance on the pitch had improved (noticed by both B, fellow players and his manager) and his recovery period after a match reduced from 24 hours to just 12 hours.
“The positive results I experienced physically and mentally during my Bowen therapy surpassed my initial expectations. I’m a very sporty individual (semi-professional footballer) with a busy work schedule so to find a therapy that significantly reduced stress levels and improved my physical wellbeing and performance was a first. I would typically use a sports masseuse but Bowen offers you so much more. I would certainly recommend a course of therapy, the positive results will be evident“. B Thompson
