Below are some case studies, detailing the symptoms and benefits experienced by some of my clients:



Jane is a regular client of mine who has various problems.  I was delighted to receive this testemonial which Jane posted on facebook:-

I would just like to thank Sheila Bryant Bowen Practitioner for getting me right yet again, I was very lame & sore yesterday, but today am so much better & know tomorrow i will be even more so. I am so lucky Bowen works for both me & my horses. Give it a try you may, like me be one of the lucky ones. Sheila is most definitely 5 star. Thank you


Female 52 yrs: Presented with pain at the base of skull which had radiated into throat and right ear. Made movement of neck in any direction very uncomfortable. Happened after swimming 30 lengths in swimming baths.

This case was a very interesting study of how Bowen can help with acute conditions.

Towards the end of the treatment, the neck was seen to go into a tremor pattern down both sides. This continued after the treatment for about five minutes. After the tremor had ceased all pain was gone and normal movement returned to the neck. No further treatment was necessary.



Female 55yrs: This lady had been suffering neurological pain in neck and head, the pain was severe, affected her sleep patterns, and made her feel dizzy and uncoordinated. She had recently got over a flue like virus and had been quiet unwell. At the time of treatment she had been off work for a month. The doctor had booked her for an MRI scan as they were unable to diagnose the problem

She received three treatments at weekly intervals, with improvement each time. After the three treatments she was able to return to work. She treated herself to two further treatments later on as the treatments had made her feel so much better. She had no need for the MRI scan.



Male 38 yrs: This man was a competing show jump rider who had developed lower back pain. This affected his riding and pain was radiating down both legs. He had been suffering this condition, gradually worsening for some six months.

One treatment was sufficient to correct the problem.


Female 25yrs: This young lady suffered intestinal pain, diarrhea and bloating. She was not able to eat many foods that did not affect her in this manner. Incredibly, she had suffered this condition for a year and had not seen a Doctor.

She was advised to make an appointment with her GP but was then treated with Bowen.

After the first treatment she had no diarrhea during the week before coming for the second treatment. She had actually tested it by eating foods that would normally have brought on an attack. After the second treatment, she became slightly constipated.

She received one further treatment. The problem was eradicated and has not returned.



Male 24yrs: This young man was a rugby player. He suffered lower back pain. Had fallen down stairs two years ago and had suffered pain since. Pain radiated from lower lumber down both legs but was worse left and was felt in left hip.

After the first treatment, he was stiff for two days and felt very sore. Nevertheless, he still played rugby that week! The pain had moved from left hip to right.

After the second treatment there was a great improvement, he had been virtually pain free. He continues to have maintenance treatments to keep the problem at bay.


Male 55yrs: This gentleman had been suffering neck pain for some three years. He had pins and needles in left elbow and hand. An MRI scan had shown some narrowing of gaps between cervical (neck) vertibrea. Lifting his arms higher than shoulder level was extremely painful. He had dislocated his left shoulder 25yrs ago.

After the first treatment, he had various reactions with pain moving around his body and felt very tired. After the second treatment there was general improvement. This condition took five treatments with gradual improvement to make the condition hardly noticeable. The condition has maintained its improvement without the need for further work.



Female 22yr: This young lady was a student training in the equestrian field. She had experienced lower back pain for a number of years. There was also numbness in the right calf and pain under the right scapula (shoulder blade).

There was a feeling of fear and uncertainty in this lady about receiving the treatment but a number of her friends had benefited and she wanted to try. She was very tense and sensitive. The treatment was carried out very slowly and gently.

After the first treatment the response triggered a feeling of extreme depression. Moods swings happened during the whole week. Pain had moved to knees.

It is worth mentioning here that Bowen works on all levels and can affect an emotional release.

After the second treatment there were still moods swings and some of them were very black. She then became very giggly and felt light hearted. The pain was gradually reducing.  After the third treatment she reported feeling very good. Positive and happy and the pain was almost completely gone. She did not need further treatment.
