The Bowen Technique, in Goostrey and Sale, Cheshire

Hi, I'm Jan Williamson ( actually now Jan Ogden as I recently got married!) as an experienced therapist and have been successfully running my Back to Health clinic for 23 years, which specialises in Bowen therapy (the Bowen technique). I'm one of the most experienced therapists in the UK, as well as being ahighly experienced trainer in the technique.
I am passionate about helping people, particularly those in pain, and having discovered the Bowen technique I am making positive changes to people's conditions and ailments every day. I even gave up my nursing career as I felt this gentle, effective therapy really did make such a difference to people who were suffering pain and restrictions in their daily lives.

I have two clinics in Goostrey ( near Holmes Chapel) and Sale which are easily accessible from Knutsford, Altrincham, Hale, Manchester, Congleton, Middlewich, Crewe, Sandbach, Alderley Edge, Wilmslow, Northwich, Holmes Chapel and throughout Cheshire.
Sessions last approximately 45 mins at the cost is £50
Home visits may also be available by arrangement in the Cheshire area.

From January 2024 I will no longer be based at Brooklands station clinic. Please make a note of the new address above, it is a private house but is a ground floor private space so very accessible. As usual I will be in my Sale clinic on a Tuesday.

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 often adjusts 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 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, neck pain, fibromyalgia, & migraine.

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

If you are experiencing conditions such as back pain, frozen shoulder, sports Injury, sciatica, irritable bowel syndrome, asthma, migraine, carpal tunnel syndrome ,arthritis, or general aches & pains, I'm sure I will be able to help. ( there is a more expansive list under "can it help me")
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 including : Sciatica, shoulder pain, neck pain, Asthma ,Migraine, IBS, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis ,to name just a few so please feel free to contact me to find out more.

What the Bowen technique is not:

Although Bowen therapy may help a lot of conditions that these do, many people who have tried some or all of the above treatments for their problem, often find that the Bowen technique works for them where other therapies have failed. Or they have a much quicker and /or longer lasting result with Bowen.

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 approximately 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!
