Unfortunately due to the nature of my work and client confidentiality, I rarely get the opportunity to share some of the great results that can be achieved through Bowen Therapy. The parents of this little girl very kindly gave me permission to share her case and pictures to allow any parents that were going through similar issues with their child to see how Bowen may be able to help. Below I have included her mother's testimonial to explain in her own words what Bowen Therapy did for her little girl.
My little girl was born with mild torticollis where her head was tilted to one side. This resulted in her not being able to sit unaided or do tummy time as she could not balance herself. This resulted in a delay with her development, she didn’t crawl until 18 months and didn’t walk till she was 21 months. She had numerous physio and osteopath treatments but with no lasting results. I then discovered Bowen which I had used previously on myself with massively good results.
My little girl had her first treatment with Jayne and straight away her whole body seemed to be straighter even her eye was more level with the other eye. Her walking became steadier and gradually her development came on in leaps and bounds. As an added extra her digestive system became more balanced as she had suffered with colic as a baby and never really had a settled tummy. After her Bowen sessions, she is now regular with her bowel movements has no constipation and sleeps right through from 7.30 till 8am (sometimes later!!)
At first Jayne treated her weekly but as she became straighter and stronger the treatments are now every 4/6 weeks. If you want a happy baby/toddler I would more than recommend Bowen it is very gentle and they love it.
The above two pictures show clearly how the restriction was causing her head to be pulled to one side, and even effecting her facial features especially around her eye.
This little girl was a delight to treat, it was very rewarding to see how quickly she would respond. Sometimes after her treatment she would start to shrug her shoulders and smile as if she was feeling more freedom in her body. Due to the fact that children have not had the same length of time as an adult to build up compensation patterns in their body, it is quite common for them to respond very quickly.
