Ros, I want to thank you for the anti-choke-movement you taught us in module 2, otherwise known as ‘The Asthma Move’. I was almost choking yesterday evening. Two pieces of fruit (unripe persimmon) got stuck in my throat. I swallowed one and it started congestion in my chest and a burning oesophagous. I slowly started not being able to breathe anymore, the pain got worse and breathing got harder every second. While I was panicking I remembered you telling us about the move which I immediately performed on myself. And straight away I coughed the piece out! That was impressive! 😊 It was also crazy to rescue myself from choking.

I thought you would like to know the reactions to the treatment I had at the end of September. At the time after the small movements you made on my back and on my front I remarked on the very pleasant feeling of a deep heat all over my middle back and feeling very relaxed. Later, on the journey home I twice came out in a pronounced sweat just like the hot flushes of 25 years ago and then on days 4 and 5 I was visiting the toilet much more frequently than usual. The benefit of the treatment showed up about 10 days later when I had the opportunity to walk much longer and further than usual and I was delighted to find that I felt comfortable all the time. I am so pleased that now walking is a pleasure again as it was just a few years ago, instead of being the chore as it has been recently.

Something re my elbow…Early in 2018 I was experiencing tingling and numbness in my ring finger and pinky on my left arm. I sought medical advice and was sent to an orthopaedist. After testing I was told I had Ulnar nerve entrapment which occurs when the ulnar nerve in the arm becomes compressed or irritated. I was told the compression was serious and could start to cause muscle wastage and the best treatment would be surgery. At the beginning of July I had the opportunity to have some Bowen therapy done by Ros in Izmir. By the end of the first day after treatment I had no tingling or numbness in my ring finger and the next day both my ring finger and pinky had full feeling. Surgery will not be an option for me at all now – I will seek more Bowen therapy.

Having had two treatments and attended a workshop with Ros I’ve no doubt about the benefits of Bowen. An overall sense of well-being but more specific benefits too; neck pain and stiffness disappeared, pain in lower back has improved dramatically, sinus problems cleared. Ros has a calm, patient manner and explains the process clearly. Thoroughly recommended

Thank You Ros! Amazing effects with Bowen on both physical, mental and emotional levels! Love the treatments and workshop. I am standing taller after the therapy! Lower back so much stronger and emotionally focussed and happier!
Lots of Love

Another Bowen student and I spent about half an hour one afternoon practising the Bowen Upper Respiratory procedure on each other but just doing the moves once each. Next day I was going out in the evening and automatically picked up a necklace to wear. Now, I haven’t worn any necklaces for years, as my neck is very sensitive to anything worn around it, including polo neck sweaters and suchlike. I was surprised and pleased that wearing this necklace didn’t give me the usual feeling of pressure and strangling that I’d had in the past. It was amazing that I also didn’t even think about it when I picked up the necklace! I didn’t have a problem with wearing it at all!

I’d had a burning pain in my heel for about a year. Every morning getting up it was very sore. The doctor could only prescribe pain-killers and rest. If I sat down for a while during the day it was again very sore on standing until the pain wore off, – or numbed, I suppose. I had one 25 minute Bowen treatment specifically for ‘Burning Heel Pain’, Ros said, and next day I felt a bit out of sorts, as if coming down with a cold. I had been told that this was likely to happen as the body throws off the held-in toxins, so I drank more water as advised. I have not had any heel pain since that day last year! Quite remarkable!

Since I have had Bowen treatment, I find I have been able to walk more easily and longer distances. Also, a pain I often had in my back has largely disappeared.I have a greater feeling of well-being than I’ve had for some time.

My eleven year old daughter was recovering from an operation three weeks previously. She had had her adenoids removed, but was recovering slowly and her energy levels were extremely low. She felt very down and nowhere near her usual perky self, being weepy with little interest in the coming school term. She had one Bowen treatment from Ros, with just the ‘basic moves’ and next day I could see her energy levels coming up substantially and the depression had totally lifted. Two days later she was perky and bright, choreographing a new dance for herself and two friends, and with that essential ‘joie de vivre’ and high level of activity that is her character. It had to be the Bowen treatment – there was nothing else to factor in!
Dear Ros, As you know I was silly enough to fall in a hole in the road on Sunday morning and sprain my ankle. By the time I got home on Sunday evening it was swollen and painful. It continued to give me trouble until we met at yoga class on Tuesday evening where you were kind enough to ‘Bowen’ it. I had a pain-free night and on Wednesday it was much improved. The swelling and tenderness has considerably lessened and despite some residual soreness it is no longer bothering me. Thank you!
I had 3 treatments over three weeks for a problem with my tongue and jaw after removal of one impacted wisdom tooth. After the first treatment I did not have major aches. However, I felt nauseous. During the treatment I noticed this but it developed. After the second treatment I felt pain in my left wrist, which I had broken severely in seventh grade. The pains I felt were sporadic but not major. The day of the last treatment I was energetic and feeling fine. The day after it though, when I woke up I felt nauseous. After I had breakfast the pains weren’t ignorable. I threw up 3 or 4 times and had diarrhoea. Plus I got my period that day, which was late for a week. I was restless and in pain. I could not fall asleep or concentrate on anything specific. During the treatments I felt pain in my stomach, knees, back and forehead. Before the treatment my tongue was very sensitive and the right side of my mouth as well as tongue had the feeling like it was burned. After the treatment the ‘clicking’ sound of the right side of my chin bone stopped and only the tip of my tongue was sensitive. In each of the treatments I felt like it became less sensitive.
Bowen is a therapy that every person has to experience. Personally I believe it helped me with my pains. After every treatment I felt less pain. It makes you feel relaxed and you feel that your body is at peace. I have had Bowen treatments from Ros over the past two years. My right shoulder used to give me terrible pain from a dislocation, but now it is fine. Also my right knee no longer swells as it used to. Since I walk a lot this is a blessing. My lower back and neck give me less pain these days, probably also due to Bowen, though I have a spinal bone deformation so I don’t expect a complete cure. In general Bowen makes you feel happier because you feel healthier, both physically and spiritually.
