A Bowen-Induced Realisation
At the end of a session a client commented: "I always come to you after I have tried everyone else (physio's, chiro's) but nothing else seems to work...I should start coming to you first!"
Ah, again Bowen doesn't get the credit
"How has your shoulder been since your last treatment Jim?" I asked. "Oh, I don't think Bowen really helps." he said. "I am sorry to hear that, is it still pretty painful?" "No, it came right during my sleep the night of the treatment."
A Tip for Partners
"My wife has been telling me for some time how wonderful Bowen is and to make an appointment with you. I have been agreeing saying 'Yes, I must do that'. One day she came home and told me I have an appointment on Saturday and here I am!"

The Courage to Change
A honest dialogue between a client and me about the response she experienced after her first Bowen session.
Client: “I felt a lot of resistance to the changes happening inside of me after the Bowen session last week.
We are so set in our habits of who we are and the stories of ourselves we know so well. It is confronting coming to the stage of not knowing who I am.”
Joshua: “Yes, it takes courage to confront the resistance but once you are able to look at it and see what it is about it will start to lose its hold over you and it won't be able to hold you back…”
Client: “It is silly that we resist making the changes that lead us to greater well being and better health.”
Joshua: “If you take the next step and go through the resistance you will see that what you are is much more magnificent than what you thought you were.”
