It's easy to forget that our bodies store our fearful thoughts, so techniques like Bowen are fantastic and vital for stress release and holistic well-being. And who doesn’t love having their body gently twanged (as it were...). Especially when it's a pro like Sarah doing the twanging!
From head to toe, inside and out Sarah, on my first session, has made a difference! I was recommended to visit after an ongoing hip issue, and who would have thought my dental issues would have be affecting my condition! She worked and considered all aspects of me in a very welcoming & relaxing session and I am looking forward to my road to recovery with Sarah.
I had complicated hip and knee problems due to a recurring attack of bursitis in my hip. Sarah hugely helped my mobility issues and Bowen is something that I would recommend to anyone. Especially with Sarah! The reduction in pain and increased mobility after each session is very noticeable. I am now able to cycle 20 miles a week without pain and hike for much longer than I ever could before.
Having had major back issues, I found a renewed balance to my whole body with less pain and greater mobility. Sarah has a vast array of knowledge and passion for what she does. I can highly recommend her.
I was suffering from severe back pain and had tried everything when some friends suggested Bowen. I can literally feel my body reacting/healing during sessions with Sarah. Two of my daughters now also go to Sarah and we couldn’t recommend her more highly. An amazing and accomplished healer.
I had fractured my shin bone and had surgery which required screws being inserted. After my first treatment, I felt more aligned and found walking much easier. Subsequent treatments have helped me so much with all the physical work I have to do in my surgical job. Thank you so much, Sarah!
I had been suffering from painful sciatica, painful joints, and severe tension in my neck and shoulders. Sarah has tackled the root causes of my musculoskeletal problems which have reduced significantly. Bowen Therapy works miracles. It’s like magic!
I had been suffering with searing back and shoulder pain and had tried everything. I didn't want to visit a traditional ‘bone cruncher’ and was getting desperate. Three sessions later I was fine and have had no problems since.
It feels like a miracle when you have had a treatment with Sarah – and at the same time you know that it is her brilliant Bowen Technique skill and focus that does the trick. A few months ago she treated my sprained ankle, and I went from hardly being able to stand on my foot to charging off on a walk in just ten minutes.
Sarah is a star! She has helped keep me body together despite taking a continual bashing climbing up mountains and through jungles filming a new Channel 4 Survival Series - I am a convert!
In my experience the best healers don’t just have an impressive knowledge of anatomy and mastery of their chosen technique, they also have empathy and understanding. Sarah is clearly a very able practitioner of the Bowen Technique but also has the indefinable qualities of a true healer. I can thoroughly recommend her to anyone whose body is in need of an MOT.
I’d been having stress-related migraines three or four times a week. After three treatments with Sarah my migraines stopped – what a life-saver for me!
My 3½ year-old son, Owen, had fallen from a chair. He was wailing uncontrollably and unable to move his neck without pain. Sarah’s moves had an instant calming effect and within minutes he was completely relaxed. Owen says: “Sarah has magic hands”. I would agree.
The day after you straightened my back, I won my first race in my track cycling league. My back has been a limiting factor in my cycling for years. Since the Bowen treatments I have felt so much faster and more comfortable on the bike. Thank you, Sarah.
Whiplash injury, thunderclap headaches. I have had many health issues recently including whiplash. After Bowen the pain in my neck area was no longer there and the therapy helps me with managing stress levels. I definitely would advise you to try out Bowen therapy. Thank you Sarah.
While suffering with frozen shoulder, I was amazed that after one particular manoeuvre I could raise my arm fully up.
After three treatments my long-standing lower back, leg and foot pain had completely gone. I highly recommend this deeply relaxing non-invasive gentle treatment that really works.
I’d been told by my GP that steroid injections or even surgery would be needed to treat my frozen shoulder. I was amazed that after only two Bowen Treatments with Sarah I have regained full use and movement of my arm.
I have not felt this well for two years since leaving hospital following a stroke and heart attack. I‘ve been to the doctors this morning and I’ve had such good blood test results. Bless you and thank you so much.
Bowen is a fascinating treatment and helps to undo years of poor posture and all the associated problems as we age. I was extremely unwell from the effects of TMJD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder). Bowen has made a huge difference to my life and I recommend it to everyone.
I have osteoarthritis in a hip and a lifetime of wear and tear on the rest of me. The results following my treatment which have been astounding giving me better movement and flexibility than I have enjoyed for years.
Sarah is an absolute gem. Lovely person and she TOTALLY sorted out my chronic back problems which had plagued me for many, many years despite numerous visits to osteopaths/chiropractors. Don't just take my word for it though, go find out for yourself.
After my first visit to Sarah I felt like I'd had an 'energetic MOT'. It wasn't just my arm that felt better but my whole system. I have no idea how it works but for me it definitely does.
I can highly recommend Sarah. I visited her when my back was so bad I was finding it hard to walk. Not only did she completely fix my back but she showed me some of the things I had been doing wrong and has permanently altered the way I approach things.
