In 2001 I was in head-on collision. I probably should not be here, but thanks to God and the excellent airbags in my Avalon- I came out with just two herniated disks in my back and neck. The disc in my neck was so bulging into my spine & doctors told me if I don’t have surgery I could jar it enough to permanently damage my spine. Instead, I increased my dosages of EnerPrime and Prost ‘Elan, and I truly have not had pain except on occasion from over-doing. Recently, the pain has increase. My shoulders, arms and hands were starting to swell up. Even touching my skin hurt. During the night, there wasn’t any position I could get into to relieve the pain. Again, I increased the two supplements and things would get better for a couple days and it would be back.
I started going to Mike Mc Gee at Fair Oaks Bowen Therapy because of the wonderful things I’d heard about his work. I went for 4 visits and now have had one full week completely without pain. I feel great!!!! I can’t thank him enough for what he does. I truly feared I would need surgery and letting anyone near my spine was probably adding to my stress and pain. However, that is now all gone and Mike is the hero in this story!
Thank you Mike and Kathy for all you do! Blessings, Kim Money

|The “plucking” technique that eases any ache|
|The touch therapy innovation proven to relieve chronic pain in 85 percent of patientsScanning the smiling faces all around her, ViciLee Jacobs mused, I must be the most miserable person ever to step foot in Disneyland. With chronic back pain causing her to sit out most rides and complain on those she did attempt, ViciLee started feeling like she could give the nasty Cruella De Vil a run for her money.
What started as discomfort grew into severe pain as ViciLee got older. Countless physical therapy and chiropractic visits, as well as a slew of anti-inflammatory drugs, hadn’t helped. In fact, over the years the pain radiated into her hip and legs, as well. “I was barely functioning,” she remembers.
Fortunately, she ran into an old friend who had become a trained practitioner of the Bowen Technique. ViciLee’s pal was confident that the holistic therapy, which relieves pain by applying light pressure to muscle and connective tissue, would help. Skeptical yet desperate, ViciLee decided to try it. “As I lay on the treatment table, there was no poking or prodding—in fact, she barely even put her hands on me. It didn’t fill me with very much hope.”
The touch technique that gets to the source of pain
|remedying back and neck pain at over 85 percent. “Rather than employing invasive manipulation, Bowen therapy uses the thumb and forefinger to ‘pluck’ muscles in a specific sequence,” explains Victoria Bowmannn, Ph.D., a Phoenix-based Bowen practitioner. This gentle pressure sends signals through the proprioreceptors (the nerve endings within the muscles) to the brain, telling the body to reset itself to a pain-free state.Typically, only two sessions are needed. Each appointment lasts about 30 minutes and costs $45 to $75 per session. (It is usually not covered by insurance.)

“Alternative medicine, frowned on for years by the medical establishment, is edging closer to the mainstream. For decades, some doctors have advocated that Western medicine take a broader approach. The high cost of traditional medicine is one driver. Lack of results is another. Even the name used in the medical profession for holistic therapies has changed to reflect acceptance: CAM, for “complementary and alternative medicine”.

Ashley Pritchard at the Swinburn University department of Psycho-physiology, Melbourne, showed that The Original Bowen Technique consistently reduced subjects level of anxiety and enhanced individuals positive feelings by reducing tension, anger, depression, fatigue and confusion. Objective measures of decrease in heart rate variability and muscle tension correlate with subjective feelings of relaxation.
