I went for Bowen treatment for the first time 3 weeks ago for my arthritic knee as I was in a great deal of pain; I was on painkillers for the pain. Over the course of 3 weeks I was also treated for my back problem which I have had for over 30 years.
After the first session I felt a difference in my knee straight away and I was able to go on 2 planned shopping trips only 1 day apart from each other with a great deal of walking involved, I had no pain afterwards, . Normally this would cause me an extremely lot of pain, I was amazed by this after just 1 session. With each treatment session I have felt better and better, After just 1 appointment per week for the past 3 weeks, I feel better than I have done for more than 20 years, I have no pain in either my knee or my back and I feel great. The therapist was very good and would tell me what he was going to do next and where on my body he was going to work, I found this relaxing and it put it at ease. This was professional and gave me confidence in what he was doing. I was surprised how gentle the treatment was and at no point was I in any discomfort or pain. The Bowen Therapist was very thorough when going through my medical history with me, which gave me confidence straight away. I would recommend this treatment to anybody that is suffering with pain, or on pain killers. I will not hesitate to use this therapist again.

In June 2016, I was involved in a road traffic accident. I lost consciousness for a short while after initial impact, I realised I couldn't move, probably down to fear, and shock. No one was hurt, but my arms were cut and had airbag burns from their deployment, and I was more than shaken, still don't know how I didn't collapse!
Once the police and ambulance had attended, and we'd been checked over, I was taken home by a lovely sergeant, I then sought out my Bowen Therapist, and arranged to have a treatment for whiplash with 24hrs. This is single handedly the best thing I could have done, being treated within 24 hrs of impact really helped my recovery and within a couple of treatments I was surprised how much better I felt and how little pain I was in. Don't get me wrong, there was still a level of pain but nothing to what I expected to have. I saw my physiotherapist 10 days after the accident (pre-existing appointment) and told him about the accident and showed him the photos. He though I would be in a world of pain and months in recovery.... He was amazed at how well I had recovered and how little he needed to do. I told him that I had seen a Bowen Therapist, and he said that he had never seen anyone as strong as I was after a Road Traffic Accident like mine in his 25 yrs of physiotherapy. I had a review with my doctor after 2 weeks, and she wanted to sign me off for another 4 weeks as it takes a minimum of 6-12 weeks to recover from whiplash, but I decided that I felt strong enough to go back, with the condition of seeing how I went. I never went back, and I am almost pain free bar a little aching in my wrist/elbow (impact arm) after a day at work or driving for approximately an hour. I can honestly say that without the Bowen therapy I received I would not feel as good as I am today. I am a true believer in how much this can help your body recover from new and old injuries.
So the moral of my story is, if you are ever in the unfortunate position of being in an accident, please seek out a Bowen Therapist in your area, they really are worth their weight in gold.

I have been suffering with severe pains in my left foot, right leg, and lower back especially around the base of the spine with swelling on occasions and I have been taking painkillers to manage the pain for years.
Over the course of the treatment, the pain in my back reduced until I could cope without painkillers. And I can now also wear heels again and walk for more than 10 minutes without pain. I feel that I have my independence back.

I ruptured my achilles tendon first in 2011 and then again in 2013. Since then I have had six cortisone injections and specially customised support boots to protect my achilles. I take eight ibuprofen painkillers daily and have to wear support splints at night.
A good friend recommended Peter, flowing her positive experience and results. I was in a great deal of pain everyday in my achilles and hips. I could not walk very far or sleep.
Peter concentrated on my hamstrings and pelvis, and the pain although still there has reduced in my hip. The work on my hamstrings has also improved the pain in my achilles to a manageable level, whereby I can sleep and walk now, and my intake of painkillers has ceased.

Whilst I was cleaning the gutters of my house at the top of the ladder, my right foot got tangled in my trousers, and in my panic I forced the leg downwards. Being a former paramedic I knew exactly what had happened when I felt the numbness and then pain. I had dislocated my knee cap. Knowing that I had to get down, I put the knee cap back into place so I could get down. I couldn’t walk without the support of a walking stick and felt as though the knee would collapse, and indeed it often did around five times a day. This continued for several days before I found Peter.
After the first session my knee felt less delicate and stronger, less likely to collapse. Since that first session it did not give way, and I could stand on it more and with more confidence. Over the next week, the knee got stronger. I saw Peter twice more and each time I felt more confidence in my knee. I was so pleased to have found such an understanding and good therapist, I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I have suffered from IBS for the last 20 years, and it has been getting worse as I get older. In order to reduce the effects I have learnt to avoid certain food groups, as my intolerance to diary products seems to be a trigger. I also suffer from cluster headaches and optical migraines. These are debilitating and make me unable to function for up to 48 hours.
Having been through the usual GP route numerous times, without success, so having nothing to lose I decided to try an alternative therapy. I had heard of the Bowen Technique several years ago, so I googled for therapists in my area and found Peter.
His patient approach and thoroughness in finding out about my conditions and how they affected me, and more importantly what they prevented me from doing gave me great confidence.
Over the course of the treatments, my cluster headaches decreased in severity, I had no optical migraine, and have not had one in the four months since my treatments. More impressively, is the reduction in the number, frequency, and severity of IBS episodes. I would not hesitate in using Bowen Technique for these or any condition.

I fell off a kitchen stool about eight weeks ago, and hurt my upper back. I visited my GP, but there was no diagnosis apart from it hurt, and to take ibuprofen which I did. After 4 weeks of the pain getting worse, I wanted the pain to stop so I was willing to try anything. Anything in this case was Bowen Fascial Release Technique.
After Bowen treatment from Peter, my back and neck have improved greatly, but what has surprised me most is the way my asthma has responded to the treatments. My need for the inhaler is reduced and I am able to walk faster than before without the need for the inhaler! It shows that Bowen Fascial Release Technique does benefit ‘the whole person, not just the symptoms’!
