Marian Capalaba Qld
My name is Marian and I would like to share my extraordinary health journey after commencing treatment with Heidi Bowen Therapist located at Manly. Being a 'workaholic' and a serious 'stressaholic', it was no surprise to anyone that my health started to suffer as a consequence. My work profession is extremely busy and this coupled with an active family life, four teenage children and a family business to run, time for myself was limited to say the least. This obviously did not help when it came to alleviating my stress levels or tending to my various ailments that I had acquired during my time on this earth. Indeed, for most of my life, I had suffered from back, hip, shoulder and neck pain which appeared to be accentuated by sitting at my computer work station on a daily basis. In response to my pain, I had tried various treatments including chiropractic, massage, acupuncture as well as various home treatments such as tens machine but all of these treatments only seemed to provide short term relief.
Fortunately for me, I was given Heidi's number from a work colleague who had been seeing her for health related issues. As soon as I attended my first session, I knew that Bowen therapy with Heidi was going to be very different to my past experiences. After a lengthy consultation process to ascertain my immediate health concerns such as trouble sleeping, Heidi proceeded to apply her Bowen knowledge. After the session, I felt fantastic and I could not remember a time that I had slept so well! After several more sessions, Heidi felt that I did not need any more treatments but thought that a maintenance program would be useful but left the time frames entirely up to me. This reassured me that Heidi was not just trying to encourage me to come for more treatments in order to secure ongoing money which appeared to be the case with some practitioners in the past.
I think what really made the entire experience different for me, was that Heidi is extremely knowledgeable in regards to many health ailments and always tends to use the simple and least costly course of action. I love this 'no frill' approach especially as my funds can sometimes be limited with four teenage children to look after. Heidi was always willing to share her knowledge at any time and would still give advice outside of her appointment times (which I might say were considerably longer than any other practitioner I had been to in the past!). Subsequently, my whole family started to see Heidi at her home practice and she helped to relieve problems such as sore backs, shoulder injuries, ankle problems, knee problems, bad sinus and the list goes on. Having an active husband and children that play a lot of sports, Heidi has been a true Godsend!
I now know that my health is back on track and I feel in control of my body once. My stress levels have decreased enormously assisted by specially filtered water and products recommended through Heidi's practice. I cannot give a high enough recommendation for Heidi and her Bowen therapy and would be more than happy to personally speak with anyone who would like further information in relation to this treatment.
