In September 2011, the patient’s family finds out about Bowen therapy and decides to try it, as a last resort, in weekly sessions, with the therapist Niculina Gheorghita. After the first sessions, remarkable results appeared; he started talking and swallowing in November and later on he was able to sit and take a few steps. In a few months after starting the Bowen therapy, the patient regained his sphincter control as well.

Testimonials from Doctors on the Efficacy of Bowen Therapy:
Bowen Therapy is not meant to replace medical treatment. However, due to its success, more and more
members of the medical profession continue to be amazed at its effectiveness and have begun to add Bowen
Therapy to their practice or refer their patients to a professional Bowen Therapist. Listen to what they had to say
about Bowen Therapy:
– Dr. JoAnne Whitaker, M.D. – “I was facing a hip replacement and back surgery when I discovered the Bowen
Technique. After receiving Bowen treatments, not only was I able to walk, but I went back to playing golf…
without surgery. I was so impressed that I flew to Australia to train in the Bowen Technique and now treat
patients with ailments ranging from bunions to heart disease.
– Audrey Butko M.D. – “I consider the Bowen Technique to be a blessing in my practice because of its
simplicity, results and patient satisfaction. It has nearly eliminated my need to use cortisone injections.”
– Dr. Michael Buckmann -“Clients who present with both acute and chronic pain, having often sought treatment
in vain from a variety of other experts and specialists, are consistently free of their problems within a very short
time by using Bowen. In fact, most clients require only 2 or 3 sessions to achieve long term benefits.”
– Mitchell R. Mosher, DPM – “The Bowen Technique is one of the most powerful physical medicine techniques
I have learned in 24 years as a podiatrist. I routinely use the Bowen Technique to complement treatment of
various foot and ankle injuries.”
– Gerry Townsend, M.D. – “I offer the Bowen Technique to acute and chronic patients who have not responded
to traditional treatment for myofascial pain syndrome, back pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis or fractures. Although
skeptical at first, C.S. Whitman, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon, now regularly refers patients to Dr. Townsend’s
– J. T., M.D., Physician, Medical Researcher, Biotechnology Company – “I have noted improvement in stressrelated
muscle pain and tension, joint pain and posture. Bowen Therapy sessions may benefit people with
musculo-skeletal pain as well as other stress related symptoms.Much to my surprise, my neck pain got resolved
through this work. I am very pleased with the results and quite amazed!”
– L. White. MD – Physician, former Professor of Cardiology -“This body work has been enormously beneficial
in allowing me to feel freer, less constricted, more mobile and better aligned. I highly recommend Bowen
– Dr Robert Flemming MD – “After over 30 years of medical practice, I am finding the Bowen Technique the
most effective and efficient hands-on procedure I’ve ever studied. I fully recommend this technique to all health
– Dr. Ted Sleigh – “Of all the modalities I have used, Bowen Therapy has helped so many of my patients that I
would never want to give it up.”
– Dr. Christine Staub – “As a board-certified family physician with a special interest in the treatment of chronic
illness and pain syndromes, I am thrilled to have Bowen Therapy as a resource for myself, family, friends and
– Oscar C. Weitzberg, Rockville, MD -“Two chronic problems cleared up after a few Bowen sessions three
months ago. As far back as I can remember, I tended toward constipation. After eighty-five years of laxatives,
enemas, and suppositories, I’m now regular — even without Metamucil. My sinus condition began in the early
1950s. After the doctor’s initial treatments with iodine, I irrigated my sinuses with saline solution for about ten
years, then used Neosynephrine for thirty years, and finally used Nasacor daily for ten years. Since the Bowen,
my sinuses are clear without any medication.”
– Dr. Fred Menier – “I have been able to notice results even in
chronic situations such as rheumatism, TMJ, chronic asthma and emotional depression.”


Autonomic Nervous System

5 10 2011

The Automatic Nervous System consists of two parts, the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Systems.

The Sympathetic System is known as the “Fight of Flight” System

The Parasympathetic System is known as the “Eat, Sleep, and Heal” System

An important thing to notice is that the Digestive System cannot work effectively while you are in Sympathetic-On

Humans often get stuck in Sympathetic-On.  While in this mode, the digestive system doesn’t function well, sleep is difficult, and healing cannot occur.

Bowen Therapy and NST(Neurostructural Intigration Technique) put your body into the Parasympathetic so your body can heal itself and you can get well.

Bowen & NST helps restore you to balance and health.

Sphenoid Bone-Center of Gravity

28 09 2011

Sphenoid bone is the keystone for the skull.

The other Cranial bones rest on the sphenoid.

The position of the sphenoid (keystone) dictates the position of ALL other skull bones.

The sphenoid bone is often moved by trauma(birth trauma and accidents).

Thus the position of the sphenoid bone dictates the center of gravity of the skull.

When it shifts causing the other cranial bones to shift as well, it moves the center of gravity of the skull.

This causes the brain to tell the neck, particularly the upper cervical vertebra, to move the get under the center of gravity of the skull so it won’t fall over.

This dictate from the brain changes the anatomical alignment of the whole body.

It is so important for your body to be in Balance and Bowen and NST(neurostructural Integration Technique) can help put your body back into balance to your center of gravity and realign your body to better health.

Neurostructural Integration Technique

14 09 2011

The Basic principles that govern the structure and application of NST are that the body is indeed a self regulating mechanism that has needs to be balanced in the structural, chemical, and mental arenas if it indeed is going to manifest a robust physiology and consequently deliver health.

Like Chiropractic, Osteopathic and Craniosacral work NST heavily subscribes to the integration of the sacrum, spinal column and cranium as a functional starting point for the resolution of almost all symptoms.

In other words, if the sacrum spinal column and cranium are balanced all systems belonging to out passing through these important structures will be free to function unimpeded.

NST is often describes as Soft Tissue Osteopathy or Neuromuscular Osteopathy with a Naturopathic supporting philosophy.

NST is applied to the neuromuscular system and in a way that is totally unique to NST.  Muscles move bones after all and generally not the other way around.

The significance of the central core being balanced before other [arts are attended to cannot be overstated, as it is indeed the central cor through which all other systems are obligated to pass!

Other sequences that then relate to particular symptoms are added to the base core sequences to ultimately build a session that is tailored for the person’s needs on the day.

A session is then completed via an investigation and where necessary balancing of the Pelvic and Temporomandibular Joint complexes.

the resultant responses are deeply self-regulatory in a multi-dimensional sense, evidenced by profound changes not only in the skeletal system, but in the muscular system, nervous system and endocrine system.

NST can be safely applied from babies to the elderly for a myraid of conditions and symptoms with lasting effects.


Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired??

10 05 2011

Wanted to take a few minutes to share with you a little of my journey to Health and Wholeness from the Inside Out!

I went the medical route to start with as that is what I knew.  Did the years of medications, equipment, tests and experimental options to figure out what is going on and how best to “fix” it.  The side effects and the hospital stays.  I have had surgery and experienced many adverse reactions to the tests and medications, with things deteriorating instead of getting better.  Been to all the specialists and faced with a lifetime of chronic pain and disability that I was told would continue to get worse and most likely be fatal. Very thankful to have these option and they have helped with some of the conditions and issues I was challenged with.

I am someone who does not give up easily and I face what comes at me by searching for answers.  I was introduced to Bowen Therapy-a very gentle hands on therapy that relaxes your body and helps it heal itself mentally emotionally, physically and spiritually bringing balance and restoration.  I was a case study for those learning the therapy. With Bowen Therapy I was able to get rid of all the braces and equipment I was using and wearing for over a decade.  I have gotten off all prescription medications as well with the help of Bowen and Natural options.

I was so impressed with how much Bowen helped me I started learning the therapy myself to help others as that is one of my passions, passing on what I learn to others and helping them improve their life and health.

I was on so much medications they were doing far more harm than good and it was becoming a major issue health wise.

I again started searching for Natural options to reduce and eliminate the rest of the medications I was on and gain understanding and knowledge of what is out there in the natural field to help with health issues.  I researched many companies online in the natural field and came across one that had a variety of options for health, weight loss, skin care, supplements, and more with a great team of people and a great compensation plan to create residual income.  I have taken various supplements with this company with amazing results.  So thankful for the opportunity and the increased health and knowledge I have gained.

I continue to learn and grow and research in the filed of natural health and therapies and love to share and pass on that knowledge to others to help them regain their health and well being too!
