Using the Bowen Technique to Address Complex and Common Conditions

Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Singing Dragon

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.

– Manfred Zainzinger, Bowen Instructor, Bowen Akademie Europa, Austria

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.

– Oswald Rentsch, Director, Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia

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.

– Gene Dobkin, Director,, author of A Bowen Home Companion, vol's I and II

This is a comprehensive book on Bowen therapy, written by passionate Bowen instructors and practitioners. A must, not only for Bowen therapists, but for everyone who wants to know more about Bowen : the scientific community, the general public, women, athletes, and people who unfortunately are suffering and searching for a solution.

– Louise Tremblay, iBowen and AIMTC Founder and Director, Bowen and Niromathé International Instructor

This book draws upon the experience of a broad team of practitioners to illustrate the value of Bowen therapy for patients with complex health conditions. It is a rich resource that will inspire, encourage and guide Bowen therapists of all persuasions.
