The Bowen 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.
Alternative Integrated Medicine (AIM for Health): this program at Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital, NC. under the direction of Gerry Townsend, M.D., is an outpatient program that offers Bowen to acute and chronic patients that have not responded to traditional treatment for myofascial pain syndrome, back pain, TMJ, fibromyalgia, arthritis, fractures, soft tissue trauma, and gynecological dysfunction.
Although skeptical at first, C.S.Whitman MD, an orthopedic surgeon, regularly refers patients to Dr. Townsend's program, and declared the Bowen Technique to be his modality of choice for treatment of most myofascial pain syndrome.
Brenda Williams, Director of the Quiet Miracles Program in North Carolina, chose the Bowen Technique as the sole hands-on component of her hospital's pain management unit.
Audrey Butko,M.D. finds the Bowen Technique to be a blessing in an
HMO practice because of its simplicity, results and patients
satisfaction and time management with the ability to treat several
Dr. Robert Ullman is a naturopathic and homeopathic physician and is co-founder of the Northwest Center for Homeopathic Medicine in Edmonds, WA.
Here are the cases of three people from his practice who responded well to the Bowen Technique:
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.
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.
