Why I Started Bowenwork Hawaii
Several years ago, I received Bowen therapy and made a remarkable recovery from an agonizing frozen shoulder that changed my life. I found Bowen therapy amazing, a sensible and painless alternative to surgery and medications. I wanted to share it with other sufferers like me. So, I made the biggest career jump of my life by going back to school to become a Bowen therapist.
Bowen Therapy Makes Positive Transformations
Over the years, I’ve seen how Bowen Therapy makes positive transformations in people whose lives have been altered by pain. My own, and I’ve had a lot – low back, hip and knee problems, head and neck pain, tummy discomfort to name a few – have all but disappeared since I began receiving Bowen treatments. The return of full shoulder mobility makes swimming almost effortless. Running is enjoyable again due to decreased tension and ease of flexion in my knee. Best of all, the occasional yet almost crippling low back spasms are a thing of the past.
Bowen is uniquely effective with light touch and gentle pressure, but don’t let that fool you. This therapy kick starts your body into self-healing mode, relaxing, unwinding and resetting areas of tension. The result – less pain, greater freedom of movement, and recovery of energy. Whether it’s a brand new or chronic condition, I’m committed to helping those who are motivated to tackle their pain. From my own experiences and people I’ve worked with – Bowen therapy can truly make a positive difference in one’s life.
