Prior to visiting Christine and having Bowen therapy treatment, I was suffering from sciatica and being treated by my GP with strong pain relief. I was having sleepless nights due to extreme pain from my left hip down to my foot and having difficulty walking. Before and during my treatments, Christine was very professional, compassionate and informative and I felt safe and spiritually relaxed. Following my second treatment, I was amazed at how quickly my condition had improved.
I cannot thank Christine enough and I would highly recommend a Bowen treatment from Christine, if you are seeking an alternative source of treatment.
I first visited Christine around 8 years ago after a fall which damaged my shoulder, which then resulted in a frozen shoulder, after 12 sessions of physiotherapy, I still hadn’t got my full range of movement back, and I decided to see if Bowen would help.
I was immediately impressed by Christine’s approach, she encouraged me to see how I felt after an initial block of 3 treatments over a 3 week period. I felt an improvement straight away both in my range of movement and comfort level; I also really enjoyed the treatment, so I continued, and I’ve been visiting her on a regular basis ever since.
Then I noticed another unexpected effect: (I had never mentioned this problem to Christine). A few years previously, I had developed a strange sensation in my throat. When I turned my head a particular way, then swallowed, it felt like there was something stuck in my throat. My GP sent me for tests which came back negative, I resigned myself to accepting that I would always have it.
After about 3 months of having Bowen, I suddenly realised one day that I couldn’t feel the lump sensation any more.
Fast forward a few years: My elderly father (89) developed a sharp shooting pain in his shoulder. His GP told him it was likely that he would need an operation. With the prospect of recuperation of around 9 months and living alone, Dad would have needed considerable help. Dad was very open to holistic treatments and I took him to see Christine. She was incredibly gentle and kind with him, as he was profoundly deaf and his mobility wasn’t great. He thoroughly enjoyed his Bowen, the pain never recurred and he was able to maintain his independence living at home.
I was really unsure about Bowen at first, as I was used to having massage and this is very different and so gentle, but since I have seen so many positive results over the years I have recommended it (and Christine) to many of my clients and friends.
Christine is ethical, intuitive, gentle and a truly holistic worker. She has helped with so many different aches and pains over the years now that she has moved to Northumberland, I am really missing her treatments.
I used to be cynical about the Bowen Technique, however, I had sciatica and was willing to try anything to get some relief. My wife has always sworn by it and Christine in particular. We had her give our dog, Bracken Bowen treatment as well and ‘Wow’ what a difference it made to her. I thought if it worked on our dog who is not encumbered with cynicism like me, I would give it a try and what a relief I got.
I started having Bowen treatments nearly 3 years ago and I can honestly say that I have never looked back. I go for treatments whenever I feel I need it. For instance, when my energy levels are low or I have a physical ailment that needs sorting out. My hip joint used to bother me which sometimes made walking painful. After a few sessions, it was sorted out and because of the nature of Bowen (its very subtle) I had to be reminded I even had the ailment in the first place. It felt like I had a fully working hip joint.
Not only is it a great physical healer, I also find it helps me enormously with my stress levels and ‘sorting my head out’. It’s very good for relaxation and combatting depression. The really great thing about Bowen is that it works where your body needs it. Christine is very good at what she does and I can’t imagine life without her.
As a Parkinson’s sufferer I am using a series of alternative therapies including Bowen as recommended by John Coleman.
As my Bowen Therapist, Christine, you have shown great empathy for the condition. My regular treatment with you has led to a greater sense of well being and a reduction in the severity of a number of symptoms. I would certainly recommend you to any of my friends who would benefit from Bowen
I have been receiving Bowen treatments from Christine for almost 10 years and cannot recommend it highly enough. This may be a gentle and non invasive technique, but the effects are powerful with the whole body approach not only addressing the aches, pains and tensions you went with but also those you had begun to accept as part of life. After a single treatment you leave the session deeply relaxed and in the few days after the treatment you begin to notice your body releasing and finding its balance.
Christine is kind and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend this. Try it just once and you will feel better.
I am very pleased with the results of my Bowen treatment with Christine. I am particularly grateful for help with a long standing bladder problem which is now much improved and has eliminated the worry and distress experienced over the years, thus enabling me to regain more control of my bladder instead of it being in control of me. Joy! Thank you Christine.
I had a frozen shoulder which was immensely painful and debilitating. It meant I struggled to move at all, including getting dressed and driving. The pain was unbearable. My GP said it would take twelve to eighteen months to right itself. I went to see Christine for Bowen and after 2 sessions my shoulder felt freer and the pain lessened. Within a total of 3 months my shoulder was completely back to normal. I highly recommend this non invasive treatment for anyone who has joint or soft tissue problems.
After trying for a baby for 5 years we had had 3 unsuccessful attempts with IVF and had just gone on a waiting list for egg donation when a friend suggested going to see a Christine for Bowen Technique treatment. After 5 treatments, we were overjoyed and amazed to find that I was pregnant. The treatment was relaxing and gentle. Christine does everything possible to make you feel relaxed and comfortable
I was also suffering with a bad shoulder at the time of my treatment and as Christine treats the whole body I have had no problems with my shoulder since the treatment.
I would not hesitate to recommend Christine and the Bowen Technique.
I have been having Bowen with Christine for 5 years and cannot speak highly enough of her and the treatment. She is extremely good at her job which she clearly enjoys. She is professional in every sense of the word.
However, it is Christines’ personality and presence that sets her apart, she exudes calm and tranquility and by the end of the session I feel completely transformed.
Northumberlands’ gain is Cheshires’ loss.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for my Bowen yesterday. I am still not sure how Bowen works or why it works - all I know is IT DOES WORK. You are the very best Bowen Practitioner I have ever encountered. I feel I can face the world again. Thank you.
