The Bowen Technique - Case Studies

Case Study Selected: Bell's Palsy (Pains, Palsies & Breathing Difficulties)
woman, age 54: 2 treatments
Mrs R. writes: "On Friday, 1st September 2000, I was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy and was given a 5 day course of steroids and advised to see a neurologist. This would have probably taken several weeks with the NHS. I contacted Bowen practitioner Ron Simmonds on Monday 12th September."

"The symptoms of the Bell's Palsy were that my left eye had gone right up in the socket and the right side of my mouth had dropped so that I had great difficulty in drinking and eating."

"During the course of the first treatment, during one of the short breaks [that are a part of Bowen treatment], I could still feel movements around and under my left eye as though he were still working on it. When the treatment was finished, I looked in the mirror and was amazed to see that my eyes were symmetrical and back to normal. A week later I had a second treatment and my mouth showed a little improvement on that occasion. I had a third appointment provisionally booked for a week later but my face was so improved that I did not need it."

"I also had a private appointment with a neurologist on the 27th of September, by which time my face was completely recovered."
