On my first visit Sara explained the principles of Bowen Therapy and what she would be doing. To begin with Sara took note of how I was feeling, my medical background my shoulder injury and how it affected me.
Sara explained that I could be treated through light clothing or in my underwear, she explained that I would be covered with towels other than the area she was working on – this put me at ease, I felt really comfortable. She assured me that the movements she was going to make would be gentle and not give me any discomfort. I must point out that I had had three injuries to my shoulder in as many months, I had attended physiotherapy appointments previously but it was still troublesome two years on. My shoulder was giving me constant pain at night, it felt like my shoulder bone was sticking out in to the mattress.
Sara used the Bowen Technique very methodically, I must say that the breaks in between the moves felt strange, as other treatments are constant, but it made me feel very relaxed – I could of fallen asleep.
As Sara worked on my shoulder, I experienced a strange feeling down my neck and shoulder, it felt like a release of some kind. As I got up off the couch I felt very supple for the first time in ages, the shoulder pain had gone and I could move my arm more freely!
I still have monthly treatments with Sara as Bowen has really helped my arthritis – my shoulder is better... I would recommend Sara and Bowen Therapy to anyone.
It was really interesting watching Talulah have her treatment, she totally relaxed and you could see her processing. At points during her treatments she would carry out huge neck stretches, cat stretches and stretch her hind limbs behind her. It was quite miraculous after her first treatment, I had not manage to ride her for a few days and if she is not ridden, she can be tense and nervous - I mounted her without assistance, and walked forward without her jogging. She appeared very relaxed, not nervous at all!
Talulah has maintained all the positive responses since the first treatment. I have also noticed an improvement on her not leaning on the right rein, she feels even and is working in to the bit.
I am really pleased with the outcome of her Bowen Treatments and definitely would recommend Sara.
