As an avid user of Bowen Therapy, James Ellison has submitted an inspiring testimonial explaining how he relies on the Bowen Technique to stay sharp for his career and claims how it has been a life changing experience for him.

James Ellison was introduced to Bowen Therapy in his local gym in his hometown of Kendal in Cumbria. At the age of 34 and after several motorcycle accidents (some at over 180 MPH), James admits regrets about not trying Bowen Therapy sooner!

As a professional motorcycle racer James’ body goes through an extreme amount of stress on the race track as well as working on his fitness in the gym for hours at a time in preparation for upcoming races.

On one particular occasion, James was training at the gym when he found himself suffering from severe lower back pain due to a trapped nerve that had flared up.

Noticing James’ distress, the gym owner offered James some assistance to relieve the pain. It was at this point when James was introduced to Bowen Therapy as the gym owner was actually a qualified Bowen Therapist and began to practice Bowen Therapy on him. After the first Bowen Therapy session, James could not believe how good he felt! Not just in that specific lower back area, but all his “niggling pains seemed to have subsided considerably” as a result of Bowen Therapy.

James was extremely pleased with the result of his first Bowen Therapy session and continued receiving Bowen Therapy thereafter. As explained in his testimonial, James has had numerous physiotherapy treatments including deep tissue, Pressure Point, Acupuncture and a lot of painkillers; none of which seem to have any immediate relief or long term benefits.

A final note from James’ excellent testimonial on Bowen Therapy:

“I have never felt so good and will continue to recommend it to anyone looking for pain relief or even just wanting to improve their quality of life. We need to all spread the word, this technique really is life changing!”


How Bowen Therapy works

The Bowen Technique is a finger thumb rolling movement which applied to specific points of the body. The gentle movements are rolled over muscles ligaments, tendons and fascias. Bowen Therapy is a drug free, non invasive holistic treatment which stimulates the body to realign and restore its physiological equilibrium.

By targeting specific points of the body, the Bowen Technique can release deep stress and tension which results in the relief of pain. Bowen Therapy sessions last between 30 – 60 minutes and you are required to have a number of sessions in order for body to respond and react to the therapy.

Who can benefit from Bowen Therapy?

Bowen Therapy is suitable for people of all ages, from babies to the elderly. The Bowen Technique is a gentle movement that is generally relaxing to receive. No force or muscle manipulation is used; the Bowen Technique is simply asking the body to recognise these movements and change accordingly. The client’s comfort is always the Bowen Therapists main concern; therefore the client can receive Bowen Therapy whilst wearing light clothing, whilst sitting, standing or lying down.
