Deborah's Story I required regular chiropractic adjustments for years until I discovered Bowen therapy. My sacro-iliac was constantly out of alignment due to childbirth and the physical and emotional stresses of my life. I could never get the condition stabilized. An adjustment on one side just seemed to lead to a problem on the other side and so on back and forth we chased the problem. Bowen by Brettell sessions are very relaxing and immediately effective in many cases. Susan has very good hands and a calm reassuring manner. After a Bowen session with her I usually feel immediate relief and by the next day I don’t recall why I had a problem. The treatments ‘stick’ too. Now I only need treatments when something out of the ordinary happens to cause a problem. I like the fact that my body is adjusting itself with suggestions received through the Bowen technique - I think it is a more balanced treatment for this reason and that my body is gradually learning to adjust itself especially if I maintain the simple exercises that are recommended following every Bowen session.
Thank you Susan!

Dave's Story Over the course of several months I have had a number of Bowen treatments performed by Bowen practitioner Susan Brettell. I have a few chronic issues that Susan’s treatment has alleviated considerably.
A shoulder that has bothered me for years has been given much relief by a few treatments. A persistent sciatic nerve problem will get almost instant relief by the Bowen technique. Some exercises and stretching afterwards are key to eliminating further pain from this common complaint. A groin adjustment for a hip issue had a side benefit which was a reduction in the amount of time I was up to urinate in the night. There are numerous nights where I only am up once and consequently am getting a full night’s sleep. One other issue I have is plantar fasciitis and so Susan has treated that with a good deal of success. It is not completely gone but almost.
Over the years I have had numerous types of treatment, from chiropractic, massage, and laser treatments. Bowen treatment has definitely helped me in my search for eliminating constant pain in my body.
Susan genuinely cares about her patient’s health and well being, and one’s comfort and recovery is foremost in the way she tries to plan the treatment. The Bowen treatment has worked for me and I would recommend it to those who have tried other forms of pain management that have not worked.
