Back pain and bad posture

“I must admit that I was sceptical of trying Bowen Therapy. However, I had had no success with chiropractors and acupuncture as a solution to my back pain which was aggravated by my bad posture. I found Michael to be personable and informative. After the first session there was a marked reduction in the pain. Additional sessions further reduced this and there was also improvement in my posture. In addition to this, my stress levels felt greatly reduced and my energy levels increased. I would not hesitate to recommend this treatment.”

Frozen shoulder for the past 10 years

“I’ve had a frozen shoulder for almost ten years, and having tried cortisone injections and heat therapy, nothing seemed to help long term. I just lived with the pain, some days better than others. I thought I’d give Bowen a try. My daughter explained that there was a minimal amount of pressure used, no deep manipulation or cracking. After the session I felt extremely relaxed and slightly fizzy, and for the first time in a while I was able to sleep throughout the night without any discomfort/pain. By the third session the pain in my shoulder had almost gone and the range of movement in my arm was 70% better, something I had never dreamed would happen. It has had a profound effect on my overall wellbeing too. A treatment I would defiantly recommend everyone should try!”

Aches and pains from previous injuries

“When I first heard of the Bowen Technique, I was curious about whether it would help with my previous injuries, working from my ankles that I had injured several times, my fallen arches/flat feet, knee and back pain all the way up to my shoulders. I booked a session with Michael Patrick and informed him of every injury I have had to date. … It has been 9 weeks that I have had sessions and I have never felt better. It doesn’t just help you physically, but mentally too. I use to be very temperamental, constantly stressed, and let issues that do not matter affect me. 9 weeks on – and you can confirm this with Michael – I’ve never been so jolly.”

Problems during pregnancy

"I first heard about Bowen technique when I became pregnant and I was in a lot of back pain from a bike injury. … Mike was very gentle which was a relief as I felt a bit more vulnerable being pregnant. The small manipulations Mike performs seemed so gentle but deep and effective. After one treatment I was on the road to recovery. I have seen Mike throughout my pregnancy … On week 36 I had a bad attack of symphysis pubis dysfunction which is common in pregnancy and treatment got me walking evenly again. I cannot recommend Mike enough, the treatment is so gentle and non-invasive but gets the job done! 10/10."

Severe arthritis pain

When my daughter first booked my appointment for Bowen I was very sceptical. I had severe arthritis pain and was contemplating wheelchair use. Within the first month of treatment my pain was reduced dramatically, and the swelling in my legs and back and my circulation improved. After a year the pain began to return, although not to the same extent. I returned for another block of appointments, which again worked wonders. Without the help of this treatment I could not have lived a normal life including enjoying my grandchildren and going on holiday. Michael has been really supportive and flexible with my appointments and always explained what he was doing. I am very grateful indeed.”

Hips and Achilles problems

"I am very grateful to Mike for the care he afforded me over the summer. I had a recurring pain in my hips and was also wary of my achilles. Six sessions with him have been nothing short of transformational for both. He listened to my needs and worked around them. He gave me some very useful tips on how to maintain myself that have proven to be more effective than advice I have had in the past from more regular physios. I would recommend him unreservedly.”
