The Bowen Technique, in Goostrey, Cheshire
Experienced Therapist Jan Williamson runs the Back to health clinic, which specialises in Bowen therapy ( the Bowen technique)
I am passionate about helping people- particularly those in pain, and having discovered the Bowen technique I am making positive changes to people daily. I even gave up my nursing career as I felt this gentle effective therapy 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.
I have 2 clinics:
Goostrey in Cheshire
Sale, in South Manchester.
Goostrey is between Knutsford & Holmes Chapel in Cheshire.
What is The Bowen Technique?
* Developed by Tom Bowen in Australia, the technique is now practised 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, tendons & connective tissue, and has a profound effect on the fascia. A lot has been written about Fascia recently and Bowen is one of the therapies that can achieve fascial release. No forceful manipulation is used, as it is a soft tissue therapy, moves are interspersed with periods of rest in order for the treatment to be absorbed, and the tissues to normalise. It is a truly holistic therapy (treats the whole body).
Most people find it very relaxing and report that they feel less stressed.
* 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 about 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, & fibromyalgia).
*The treatment takes about 45 minutes and can help anyone from the newborn to the elderly.

People often refer to me as "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- in fact the Bowen technique has been known to help most problems so please feel free to contact me to find out more.

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
