Published in England by Dr. Bernie Carter, at the Metropolitan University of Manchester (UK), a Bowen study showed effective results with frozen shoulder after 3 to 6 treatments, even with those who had long-standing conditions. The study involved 20 participants diagnosed with frozen shoulder and treated with Bowen therapy.
70% of participants regained full mobility, equal to the unaffected side, by the end of treatment. The other participants showed significant improvement in mobility and associated function. 80% of participants reports a pain level of 0-2, down from a level of 10. Some still reported mild ache but none reported any invasive or intense pain, which they had experienced before receiving Bowen therapy.
At the conclusion of this study, participants reported a high level of satisfaction with the therapy, a commitment to use Bowen therapy in any future case of relapse or for another condition, and the intention to recommend the therapy to friends and family. http://www.naturalisllc.com/blog/2013/7/9/research-demonstrates-effectiveness-of-the-bowen-technique
“I’ve had a frozen shoulder for almost ten years. I tried cortisone injections and heat therapy, but nothing seemed to help long term. I just lived with the pain, some days better than others. After my first Bowen 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 well-being too. A treatment I would definitely recommend everyone should try!”
