Technique, a healing, often miraculous, life-changing hands-on therapy, is
revolutionizing the healthcare world!
Due to its high rate of success
and its help in speeding up recovery time, more and more members of
the medical profession continue to be amazed at its effectiveness and have
begun to add the Bowen Technique to their practices.

Although skeptical at first,

Mosher, DPM, claims that the Bowen Technique is one of the most
powerful physical medicine technique that he learned in 24 years as
a podiatrist attending countless podiatry related seminars. He
routinely uses the Bowen Technique to complement his treatment of
various foot and ankle conditions (hallux valgus with bunion, hallux
limitus rigitus, joint pain, hammer toes, burning foot, ankle
sprain, leg/foot cramp, heel pain, fasciatis) and apply it pre/post

Here are the cases of
three people from his practice who responded well to the Bowen
Nancy, 23, had had pain
in the hips since she was a teenager. The pain was severe and
radiated down the outside of her legs to her knees. It would
come on particularly when she was angry or upset. Exercise
would make it worse, and it had come on from extensive gymnastic
practice in high school and college. No treatment had ever
been successful in relieving the pain. After two Bowen
treatments, Nancy reported that the pain was completely
relieved. It turned once after an emotional trauma a few
months later and one treatment took care of it.
Sam, 52, had chronic
spasms in his neck and shoulder. He never seemed to be able to
relax. He worked too hard and took his problems home from
work. During his Bowen treatment, Sam went into a very deep
state of relaxation, nearly asleep. When the treatment was
finished, he said that he had not felt that kind of rest in
years. The effect stayed with him and his pain completely went
away within a week after his second treatment. He then took
his first vacation in a decade.
Jill, 49, had asthma and
chronically swollen, painful knees. The Bowen moves were able
to relieve her bronchial spasms and allow freer breathing, but did
not totally cure the asthma. Her knees, however, had a
complete reduction in swelling and pain, and considerably increased
mobility after two treatments. Now she can go up and down
stairs without pain.
These kinds of results
are common for the Bowen Technique. Simple, gentle, deep and
rapid, this is Tom Bowen's healing legacy. It is truly a
wonder from down under.
and a family physician
Dr. Christine Staub,
a family physician with a special interest in the
treatment of chronic pain, has seen the Bowen Technique "unlock the door" for patients who reached an impasse in
their pain treatment. "I am thrilled to have Bowen Therapy as a
resource for myself, family, friends and patients," she said.
