My story ~ How I found Bowen
Marla Hasquet, CBT
I was at a wedding reception in about 2009. Visiting with the other ladies at the table, one lady said she was the Bride’s Bowen Therapist. Well, I thought she said Bone Therapist and asked what was wrong with the Bride’s bones. She said, “No, no, no!!". She then went on to explain and tell her story.
This lady had been in a car accident and broke her spine in 3 places. They put two steel rods along her spine. As she was recovering from the surgery and accident, she She felt vibrations from her tail bone all the way up the steel rods to the top of her skull. Her body basically itself. She was living with constant and had to adjust her life accordingly. She went to all kinds of specialists and tried all the naturopathic modalities she could. One day, coincidentally she was watching a morning show that was explaining Bowen. She grabbed her massage therapist and they went to the west coast to take classes. Through the course of the next her body began healing itself. If you saw her today you would never know she had been through all of that. She gets around just like any other healthy person She continues as a Bowen Therapist.
After hearing her story, I must have had a skeptical look on my face, because she said to me, “Okay, do you have any specific place in your body that you have pain?” I responded with, “yes, my shoulders.” And continued to tell her how over the past 10 plus years my shoulders had progressively become more painful. She did 3 Bowen moves on each shoulder. I didn’t think too much of it at the time, but as I was driving home the next day, I was amazed at how much better my shoulders felt. Over the course of the feel relief from the pain. I really could not believe that so little could help alleviate my pain.
I took the time to do a little Bowen research when I got home. After a year of ignoring the nagging voice in the back of my head telling me to go do this, I finally did! The closest location to take classes for me was Calgary, which is where I went for classes. The Bowen Therapy technique is the same whether taught in the United States, Australia, Canada or in any of the other 30 countries in the world where Bowen is present. It wasn’t until I felt relief from my shoulder pain and experienced the increase in of motion in my arms and shoulders, that I realized how much I had been compensating for the pain.
I love Bowen and am very how it improves your wellness and health. It feels good to
