The Bowen Technique, in Goostrey, Cheshire

My Name is Jan Williamson and I run the Back to health clinic in Goostrey, Cheshire and Sale, South Manchester, which specialises in Bowen Therapy, Goostrey is between Knutsford & Holmes Chapel in Cheshire.
I am passionate about helping people- particularly those in pain, and having discovered the Bowen technique, I feel I am able to achieve this. I even gave up my nursing career as I felt this really did make such a difference to people's lives.
I am a leading authority of the Bowen technique in Sale, Manchester throughout Cheshire and the North West, Teaching as well as being an active therapist in this wonderful technique.

What is The Bowen Technique?
* Developed by Tom Bowen in Australia the technique is now practiced worldwide. It is a unique therapy which stimulates the body's own healing responses and may adjust abnormalities which cause pain.

* The Bowen technique consists of a series of precise and gentle moves over muscle, connective tissue, and the fascia. Moves are interspersed with periods of rest in order for the treatment to be absorbed. It is a truly holistic therapy (treats the whole body).
Most people find it very relaxing as there is no forceful manipulation involved.
* Bowen Therapy usually produces maximum results with minimum intervention. The majority of people feel some positive response after only one or two sessions. (Although a course of 2-3 treatments is generally recommended) in most cases only a few treatments are required to achieve relief from even long standing problems (eg chronic back pain & frozen shoulder).

*The treatment takes about 45 minutes and can help anyone from the newborn to the elderly.

The clinics in Sale and Goostrey are easily accessible from Knutsford, Altrincham, Hale, Manchester, Congleton, Middlewich, Crewe, Alderley Edge, Wilmslow, Northwich, Holmes Chapel and throughout Cheshire.
Home visits may also be available by arrangement in the Cheshire area.

People often call me "the back pain clinic in Cheshire" - as many people suffer with a bad back , and I am well known for being able to help , however back pain is only one of the many conditions I have helped- infact the Bowen technique has been known to help most problems so please feel free to contact me to find out more.

What the Bowen technique is not:

Testimonials. ( Taken from my comments book)

I Had nearly given up after no result from osteopathy, chiropractic and acupuncture. My treatment here has been superb and my back pain completely eradicated. I have returned for shoulder treatment. Keith Miller 69

"I have been having treatment with Jan intermittently for 2 years. I have regular sessions as my condition requires it. Before Bowen I was regularly laid up in bed with back pain- not any more. The treatment is very effective and I rarely have to take painkillers. All in all my life has improved dramatically. Mary Fairfield 59

I know that this Bowen technique works, kept me working all last year. Regular treatments are the secret! and a good investment for back pain free golf. I recommend the technique for all types of people - you don,t have to be a sportsman. Mike Williams - Golf professional

This Is return visit after many years pain free I first came in approx 2003 & had treatment for neck, shoulder and headaches, I have not had a migraine since the treatment! My body always feels better after treatment. Liz Longden 64

2 sessions and my shoulder and arm improved beyond anything I expected. Brilliant. Les kenwright

I Know the Bowen technique works. Although I have ongoing back and leg problems I would not have the mobility I have now, it is such a relief when I have been for each treatment, I am certain it is keeping my joints from pain.
I have also found the treatment has helped the IBS problem. Thank-you Jan
Pat Adams Young at heart!

After years of back pain, two sessions and I'm pain free. Mr A Deas 45
