Celina is a professional dancer and French tutor and so she has a lifestyle which mixes athleticism with being stuck in London traffic as she drives to clients. She came to me with three main issues: it was painful for her to turn her head more than about 45 degrees to the left, and driving for more than about 30 minutes made her mid back hurt and her right hip go numb.
After the first treatment there was a little improvement, with the time it took to start hurting increasing to about 40 mins. This was enough to get her to most of her clients without the pain kicking off. By the third week she was up above an hour before the pain started and she could also turn her head without pain (though it was still restricted).
A few months later, after a few more treatments, all of the problems she came with had completely stopped bothering her.
“For years I´ve had a recurring inflammation of the facet joints in my spine, and the problem travelled up into my shoulders and neck, and down to affect my hip alignment, which both restricted me in my professional life and caused me a lot of discomfort.
I´ve tried treatment from a number of different techniques and practices, and I must say I was bewildered by the change that such a minimalistic and non-invasive technique could bring about in my body. The fact that the manipulations were there to invite my own body to correct itself and not to force any parts to move involuntarily was a welcome change. Since Bowen, not only have I been able to work without discomfort or pain, but it has also given me a deeper sense of understanding and connection to my own physical body. What more can you ask for?!”
