Bowenwork is not a cure-all or magic therapy to “fix” conditions, but it does enable your body to heal itself according to its abilities. Some results are instant and dramatic while others are subtle and take more time. Many people have experienced full resolution of their conditions, and others have been able to effectively manage symptoms of permanent conditions. Others have avoided surgery because Bowenwork helped resolve their symptoms!
"At age 75, I have severe arthritis in my joints, especially my right hip. My doctor told me I was beyond help and needed hip surgery. Then I heard about Bowenwork and contacted Heather to see if she could help me. She asked me what my pain level was on a scale of 1-10, and I said 11!
I felt so much better after my first session and continued to improve with each additional session. I have Bowenwork every 2-3 weeks. It takes patience for your body to start healing itself, but it works! My pain level is down to a 3 or 4, depending on what I do.
Bowenwork has helped with other issues too. Somewhere along the way I developed a strange bump on my knee. Heather did Bowenwork on it and I was shocked to see the bump had disappeared by the time I got home! My family has also noticed that I am more positive and happy since starting Bowenwork.
I can only say I am so happy I decided to try Bowenwork. I highly recommend it. I believe if you have pain and you have patience, it can work for you."
"While I attribute the reduction of my hip and leg pain to both Bowenwork and dietary changes, the incredible sense of overall well-being I have is definitely a result of Bowenwork! I feel deeply relaxed after my sessions. The feeling of calm lasts for days, allowing me to be better equipped to handle overwhelming and stressful situations."
"I had a deep pain in my hip/lower back area after over-using my back working in the woods. Heather found the problem to be my psoas muscle - a very deep hip flexor, which, in my case, was also associated with a lot of emotions. Releasing the muscle released a lot of emotional overwhelm. I have been pain free since!"
“I had painful heel spurs for two years which also affected my hips and back. I tried physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic care, and massage therapy to avoid double foot surgery. I had only temporary relief. My life changed completely when I met Heather. Bowenwork relieved my pain. I have worn a night guard since 1994 for TMJ issues; Bowenwork has corrected that problem too. I am back to doing the things I love to do pain-free. Bowenwork has reset my body in many positive ways.
Thank you, Heather, for having the passion and belief in how Bowenwork could relieve my pain. You will improve the lives of many individuals, as you did mine. You are a blessing in my life!”

“I had never heard of "Bowenwork" until my wife told me about it. I was willing to try anything to help alleviate my lower back pain as well as an assortment of aches and pains in this 56-year-old body.
My back has been pain-free for about 1 year. Heather has been a blessing. Each time I see her for a "tune-up" I experience less tension, less stress and more relaxation than I had ever received from a massage.
During our sessions, my body responds with sensations I have never experienced with other bodywork. Electrical pulses and an unwinding feeling within my muscles are common responses my body exhibits.
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your body and have never thought of "Bowenwork" as an option, I would highly recommend it. You know your body best, and Bowenwork helps reset your body into its natural, intended state.”
“My conversion from massage therapy to Bowenwork therapy has given me a new perspective on my aging body. It can and does work better. A massage provided short-term relief from arthritic and skeletal disorders...few days to a week. Bowenwork provides immediate results that keep me going for weeks, and even if the arthritic conditions kick in, they are not as severe or activity altering. I feel 20 years younger thanks to Bowenwork.”
“Heather Boyle and Bowenwork have changed my life!
In 2017 I was 56 years old and miserable. I have degenerative disc disease at 8 levels in my neck and lower back, spondylolisthesis, which is a shift between vertebrae, at L5 and S1, and arthritis in my spine. I had visited a chiropractor 1 to 2 times per week for a few years which gave me temporary relief. The pain grew constant; it was the first thing on my mind in the morning and the last thought I had going to bed. My legs even began going numb. I quit golfing, skiing, hired someone to cut our grass, and eliminated other activities from my life that would irritate my neck and lower back. In the fall, I was taking all the steps necessary to have the worst areas of my spine fused with surgery; I was ready to try anything to get some relief from the pain in my spine and feeling back in my legs.
Then I heard about Bowenwork therapy and I started looking for a practitioner in the Milwaukee area. That is when I found Heather and my life started to change. While the improvements have not been instant, they have been dramatic! I can lay down and not feel pain in my neck or back for the first time in years. The numbness in my legs has faded away. I can turn my head without listening to my neck grind. I golfed for the first time in 3 years, and while my spine got better, my swing did not! I can exercise again. I have been doing extensive yard work and planting trees. Bowenwork is helping me regain my life!”
