The Bowen technique resets and repairs the body, restoring balance to relieve pain and improve energy. This book shows how it can be particularly effective at alleviating conditions that are renowned for being difficult to treat, as well as at enhancing performance in dance and other sports.
Covering lower back pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, hayfever, asthma, diabetes (type 2), migraines, stress and tension disorders, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, palliative care, performance enhancement, and in pre and post-natal care, clinical case studies reveal Bowen technique in action along with detailed explanations of how and why Bowen is so effective for each of these different situations.
This is the perfect book for Bowen practitioners, and other complementary and alternative health practitioners and medical professionals wanting to know how and why the Bowen technique can help their patients, as well as patients interested in learning about what Bowen can do for them.
This book brings together important information for therapists using the Bowen Technique. Bowen practitioners will treasure this book because it provides tips and guidance on how to treat more complex health problems. John Wilks includes new scientific findings that will contribute to a better understanding of the Bowen Technique. I consider this book a must-have for all Bowen practitioners.

Once again John Wilks has produced a book for reliable information for the health care professional. This book helps bridge the gap between traditional medicine and the growing field of complementary health care. Highly recommended.

Using the Bowen Technique to Address Complex and Common Conditions is a book to read and keep handy on your shelf, to help understand why we do what we do. Think of it as an up-to-date encyclopedia of structural and organic health, all from a Bowen perspective. I believe that musing on principles and connections such as these is the stuff upon which new and more effective treatments and procedures are founded.

This is a comprehensive book on Bowen therapy, written by passionate Bowen instructors and practitioners.
