What My Clients say about Bowen Therapy
"Good morning Lee
Just to let you know that I have decided to leave my Bowen appointment over until next year.
You did wonders when I last saw you, my collar bone seems to be back in it's rightful place, the pain has gone, the swelling is less.
I will continue to move my arms floppy every 20 minutes or so, which has helped big time.
Thank you so much Lee for all that you did for me, you are a star!"

Shoulder and neck pain
"Dear Lee, Thank you for picking up my stress and tiredness on Tuesday. Your treatment worked wonders for a long relaxed sleep that night. Have continued to feel on an even keel and as I am no longer feeling any physical stress."

I left it the weekend to report back as I was away in Warwickshire. However the journey there and back was good for me and certainly whilst everyone drives so much slower as more room up there, the motorway back was busy but I had no fears at all, congratulated myself on return!"

"I don’t know how you do what you do !
I have waited to see how I went on with my knees before emailing you back.
They are so much better ! Will talk more when I see you"

Exceedingly painful knees inhibiting lifestyle
"I have suffered with lower back pain and sciatica for several years. It comes and goes often reappearing at the most inconvenient times. The unfortunate thing with sciatica is that you have to ride it out over many weeks with or without a huge amount of strong prescription drugs.
So, last October when I was suffering from a frozen shoulder I went along for a taster session. I then went for a full follow up session and my frozen was almost resolved. I completed the exercise that Lee suggested and within a week the frozen shoulder was no more.
When my sciatica reared its ugly head I had no reservations about seeking out Lee and Bowen Therapy to help. And help she did! After a couple of treatments Lee had me mobile and able to sit for more prolonged periods.
The care during her treatments is exceptional. Her aftercare is as good. And again, Lee has given me a range of exercises to maintain my back and some to do if my back starts to stiffen up.
I have absolutely no reservations about recommending Lee’s therapies. In fact, I have recommended Lee to various people and have had nothing but positive feedback about her services. Lee goes above and beyond to make sure you’re comfortable with what she’s doing and to ensure that you get the most out of the therapy sessions."

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help and support over the past months. I really do appreciate you listening to me and talking through my worries - to be honest it is difficult to put in words just how much you have helped me. Thank you. Bowen has also been fantastic and I'm so glad that I have discovered it and met you Katie, Windsor May 2014
"I was referred to Lee as I had a reoccurring issue with my back. I had tried other treatments and had not been able to find a way of controlling the problem. With Lee's help I was able to not only solve the short term issue of the discomfort I had but I was also able to apply the advice she gave me to rectify some postural issues and stop some bad habits such as slouching and leaning over on to a preferred side. This approach to my long term back issues has helped to dramatically reduce my episodes of back pain and since my first set of treatment 18 months ago, I have not encountered the problems I once did. I found Lee to be knowledgeable and emphatic, because of this she was able to apply her experience to make sure the treatment coincided with my exercise needs.I would whole heartedly recommend Lee to anyone receiving difficulties as the treatments I received definitely worked!"

"I recommend Lee without reserve.
Not only does she do an amazing job but she is also a very caring and hardworking woman.
Lee treated me for lower back pain and I had relief after the first treatment. After 3 treatments I was fine and healthy again.
I now recommend her to friends who would benefit from her services"

Back Pain and stress
"After much deliberation and research I received my first Bowen Treatment a few months ago, after suffering with a trapped nerve in my back and frequent trips to the doctors which resulted in pain killers which hid the pain rather than cure it. The outcome and results I had were amazing and long lasting. At first I could not understand how Bowen would work but each time I have had different results and would highly recommend it. Lee has also done Bowen Treatment on my 8 year old son for his asthma the effects amazed me with the popping sensation he described and he has been a lot better ever since. That is thanks to Bowen and Lee".

Back Pain and migraines
"My personal training sessions with Lee coupled with Bowen Therapy, really helped to get my body over ongoing issues I had been experiencing for a number of years.
I originally approached Lee to get back into exercise following a long term back issue, which was preventing me from exercising without injury and pain. Lee provided me with a lot of great guidance and geared our sessions to getting my exercise confidence back and feeling stronger and fitter! She was very good at providing tips I could in corporate into daily life. Lee was able to understand/observe in depth my issues during our personal training sessions and recommended some targeted Bowen therapy. Within a few treatments, I was able to consistently exercise without pain. Lee's overall approach made me more body aware and able to enjoy exercising once more"
JB Bracknell July 2014
"Having developed a very painful and debilitating "frozen shoulder" which was impacting on my ability to lift my left arm higher than just a few inches, I was becoming concerned about the amount of pain-killing drugs I was having to take to get through the day. I heard about the "Bowen Technique" through a friend and in desperation decided to book an appointment with Lee, to see if it could possibly help the condition. I wasn't sure what to expect, but after just one pain free and relaxing session, I was amazed to find that the mobility in my shoulder had noticeably increased. Five treatments and about a month later, my shoulder was completely back to normal with its full mobility restored. That was seven months ago and my shoulder is still absolutely fine in every way. I can't thank Lee enough for her help in using the "Bowen Technique" to completely cure my shoulder"

"HI Lee, Oh my its all better thank you so much can’t really believe the difference: you are magic. Thank you so much. Best regards and have a good Christmas if not seeing you before"

"Since the start of my Bowen treatment I have had relief from pain that I have had for several years. I would recommend it to anyone who has any problems with their health. Also I find that my body and mind seem to be a lot more relaxed, feeling of well being" E.C Maidenhead Dec 2014 (Hip, sciatica, back and neck pain)
I just thought I'd give you an update after my therapy yesterday. I felt so relaxed for the rest of the day and my painful right shoulder really subsided as the day went on.
I woke up this morning and felt brilliant! Hardly any aches and pains at all. I've had a great day with boundless energy. I've achieved so much, silly little things really but they mean a lot to be able to do these things that a few weeks ago seemed impossible.
I eventually called it a day at 4.30 pm and took a good book into the garden with a large glass of wine!
For the first time in weeks I feel totally normal and still very relaxed.
I'm looking forward to my therapy next week."
See you then, Kind regards, S"

I understand that you are giving a talk to a group at a Fibromyalgia Group so I thought I would drop you a line and let you know who I have been since I saw you in Octobers last year and you may wish to quote my email in your chat.
"When I came to see you I was in a lot of pain especially in my neck and shoulders and some in my lower back which was having a massive effect on my sleep and general well being. I had tried physiotherapy, Chiropractor and osteopath before having Bowen Therapy. Since my treatment with you I now rarely have any pain and now manage to get a good nights sleep which In turn has improved my quality of life which is why you haven't seen me. When I had my first treatment I must say I was septical (not sure if spelt right) and sometimes felt worse once I was home but after 4 sessions I decided to have a break from treatment and see what would happen and the the results have been amazing a complete life saver in my view. I no longer find that I am feeling depressed and am able to cope with life so much better and have even started exercising again. I would say to anyone give Bowen a try and don't dismiss it till you have at least a couple of sessions. After suffering for YEARS Bowen Therapy has in effect given me my life back. I am due to see a rheumatoligist at the end of the month due to an unexplained swelling/lump that I have on my wrist which may or may not be the cause of intermittent pain I am getting in my thumb joint and also to see if I do indeed have Fibromyalgia (recently had lot of eye trouble which has been put down to dry eye) Always something with me but at least I am no longer in constant pain. Late I know but thank you so much as you were a great."
C Smith Maidenhead January 2015 (Painful shoulder and general aches and pains)
I’ve been meaning to send you a progress report for a while. My second treatment was nearly 3 weeks ago now.
Everything is doing really well! My leg and right side feels very different and ‘connected’ again. I realise I had got used to it not feeling right and now I’m definitely noticing the difference. I’m sure I’m moving in a more balanced way. The improvement has been dramatic after the last treatment. I did have some recurrence of aches down the leg and/or sciatic area some days later but this didn’t last very long. I find it hard to believe that two sessions have achieved this result.
I am delighted with how you and Bowen have helped me. Thank you so much; it’s a wonderful therapy. I’m feeling sure that this change for the better is permanent - but I’ll certainly call you if I do have any concerns later."

As a well-established curtain manufacturing business in the Maidenhead area, I know how important it is to offer a personal, high quality service to my clients.
I would therefore like to thank you for reaching the same high standard in you recent dealings with me. I was recommended to use you by Sally Radford of the Amber zone after I was diagnosed with tendonitis in my knee. I was a little apprehensive a first but you put me at ease very quickly. The treatment is like nothing I have ever experienced before however, I don’t need to know how it works, all I know is that it does. Three sessions and I was pain free and now I am even able to dance in the kitchen (when no-one is looking).
Thank you for your help and I will find it easy to refer my client’s to you, knowing that they are in safe hands.
