With any Bowen treatment, it can release toxins stored in the body and these can make you feel a little achy next day, so slow and careful, first time round! Oh the good news is that Bowen also makes your body better assimilate nutrients, so every cloud does have a silver lining eh?
|BEFORE - her L leg is shorter|
|AFTER clearly shows leg length improved|
|BEFORE- her L buttock higher|
|AFTER - buttocks now level|
Bowen, by the way, continues to 'work' on the body (incrementally) over 4-5 DAYS (not hours!). So slow is far, far better at the very first treatment. This is why we recommend against any other remedial therapy from any other source for that 4-5 days by the way.
|BEFORE - her L knee is lower|
|AFTER - Knees now level|
One week later she reported feeling really good after her first treatment, so I was OK to "pull out all the stops" and correct her pelvic imbalance and leg length discrepancy. Any runners reading this will be delighted to know that this is an easy issue to correct and will greatly enhance your smooth running and your body response (recuperation).
Her main areas of tension were located in two places - her lower back muscles on the Right (Quadratus Lumborum or QL for short), the right Psoas (which is a deep muscle that supports the action of the QL and often causes problems with pelvic balance, especially standing straight) and the Left inguinal ligament that connects the hip bone with the pubic bone. Other moves were made over additional areas, but these were the one where particular imbalances were found. Both can affect the pelvis and consequently the length of the leg, the placement of buttocks and knees - as you see in the AFTER treatment photos all those areas have improved markedly. The client herself could FEEL the difference as well as see for herself when looking up towards her knees.
