"Thank you" - said beautifully and sincerely to me by a woman with Multiple Sclerosis - Bowen helped her recover both physically and emotionally after a recent debilitating 'flare-up'.
A comment at the end of a session: "I feel like I am in a very deep meditation every time I have Bowen. It is so easy, I don't have to put in any effort."
Bowen Doesn't Get All of the Credit!

Bowen Therapy After Injury
If you sustain an injury of any sort the ideal time for a Bowen Therapy session is immediately afterwards. This will allow your body to recover from the trauma before it begins to compensate for it. Compensations often create more problems in the long run than the initial trauma itself. The sooner you can come in an for a session, the better - ideally within three days for the quickest and most complete recovery.
