‘I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia and the tablets prescribed by my GP did little to alleviate the intense pain in my face and jaw. Through research into ‘alternative’ options to pain killers and prescription drugs, I discovered the ‘Cotswold Bowen’ website. With no prior knowledge of the technique or background to the treatment, I visited Liz to see if she could help me. She listened to my problem and I can honestly say, that after just ONE massage/treatment, the pain stopped! It was unbelievable! This treatment is gentle and painless. I would recommend anyone to try the Bowen Technique with Liz, even if just for a pleasant massage experience!’

I have had terrible problems with my spine and pelvis and felt out of alignment. I have had physio and chiropractic work before but nothing seemed to take the pain away. I had a series of Bowen treatments with Liz every week for four weeks and now I feel far more comfortable. I am not waking in the night as I was before not being able to get comfortable. I can get out of bed easier in the mornings and feel far less stiff and I can get up onto the clinic couch without feeling like it is an ordeal. I am so pleased I have tried Bowen and feel it works for me.

My three week old baby has had dreadful colic and I visited the clinic twice over a period of seven days. The relief was very quick to see; my baby visibly relaxed and the tummy pain was very much easier after one treatment and after the second Bowen treatment the colic was gone. My baby is now much happier and the restlessness and unsettled patterns have gone. The treatment was very light to the touch, gentle and very relaxing. Liz has a wonderful way with babies and clearly loves her work.

Liz has used the Bowen technique on me over a period of twelve months, during which she has made a vast difference to my health and wellbeing. I highly recommend her for her practical, caring and customer-focused approach. She is diligent, highly professional and above all gets results. Excellent.
Diana H. Aged 46. Relaxation and wellbeing.
I attended the clinic having sustained a back injury after falling through the loft! I had a continual throbbing ache in the base of my spine which was having a major impact on my day to day life. I couldn’t sit for long periods and driving became increasingly difficult, not only sitting but rotating my spine to put on a seat belt. Despite scans at the hospital no obvious damage showed but I was still in a lot of pain and I needed some relief.
After just a couple of treatments I felt more flexible and there was less restriction in movement. I found the treatment to be very effective but gentle and I felt very confident after the first treatment that the Bowen Technique suited me.
After three treatments the ache in the base of my spine had gone and my body felt better overall, far more flexible, and I seemed to have more energy. I will definitely be having a treatment every so often just to keep on top of things.
Tony C. Aged 52. Back injury
I have had sinusitis for about 18 months which causes intense pressure headaches above and below my eyes and across my forehead. I had been reliant on prescription painkillers and advised to have surgery (which I definitely didn’t want). After the first treatment I noticed a reduction in pressure and after a couple of treatments my sinus headache had gone completely.
I have had a couple of treatments since then and Liz always manages to relieve any pressure and prevents the headache from developing. I would certainly recommend Liz to family and friends.
Hannah E. Aged 26. Sinusitis
I visited Cotswold Bowen after an operation for lymphoma cancer resulting in me having a neck dissection and having 27 lymph nodes removed. I was suffering with pain and swelling in my neck from the scar tissue. I had several treatments which helped greatly in reducing the swelling and lessened the pain; it also gave me more movement in my neck and shoulder. The muscles in my neck became more relaxed which enabled me to start driving again and return to work.
I have really enjoyed my treatments and the improvement was remarkable I felt more energised and now have regular ‘top-up’ treatments every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain my improved health.
Judy W. Aged 62. Lymphedema
I had a fall from my horse last year when she slipped on the tarmac road and fell over – me with her! Luckily neither of us were badly injured – it could have been much worse. My horse sustained a minor cut to her right knee and so did I. However, my right side literally shouldered the force and absorbed the shock and a few days later I began to get pain in my collar bone, arm, shoulder and neck on the right hand side. I found it most difficult to turn in the saddle and look behind my right shoulder to check traffic/safety to cross roads. The same when driving too.
I decided to ask Liz for help and described my symptoms being similar to those of whiplash, having headaches across my right and left temples too.
Liz was great, easy to approach and listened carefully to my problem. She recommended soft tissue remedial therapy, which works on the whole body, not just the injured area. This seemed to make good sense as it had affected my whole feeling of well-being and comfort.
It took just 3 treatments with Liz to make me feel much better. She has a lovely, kind approach and I felt in good hands.
Thank you Liz, you put the joy back into my hobby. I know where to come if I need further help.

I received a Bowen treatment after an old ankle injury started causing me pain again. The treatment was very gentle and relaxing. It really helped. I would recommend Bowen to all; it’s an amazing therapy.
