"I had suffered from fibromyalgia the last 20 years. My back problems became severe the last two months. My back issues are mostly congenital. I don't know how the fibromyalgia started.
"I had no life. It affected all aspects of my life. I had tried everything and nothing helped. I was hopeless. Prescription drugs, ketamine therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, and steroid injections. I was referred to Lisa by my daughter-in-law. My experience was unlike any other place I had been treated at before. I was treated as a whole person, not just symptoms. It has been very positive. I have never been treated by anyone who thought I could get better. I became hopeful. When I first started Bowen, my back problems were so severe I could barely walk. I was in pain from head to toe. Lisa would work on specific areas that were causing the most pain. I slept better, my fatigue improved, depression lessened, and chronic constipation improved. My pain significantly decreased in 4-5 sessions.
"Keep an open mind and always listen to your body's signals. Lisa is a gift to those who need it most. Doctors gave me pills, Lisa gave me hope."

Severe lower back pain "
"I woke up one morning and was in pain, and it grew worse day by day. I had to give up exercises in my workouts that I had been doing for 20 years. I couldn't even think about playing golf. I could not stand for more than a couple of minutes without being in extreme discomfort.
"I would describe my experience with Lisa with one word, Perfect. I was astonished at the results-- after only 2 Bowen sessions I was 90% better! This far exceeded my expectations."

Chronic low back pain
"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for making my life whole again. As we've so often discussed, Bowen Therapy was the final hope in alleviating my chronic low back pain. Several years ago I injured my back in an exercise class. When I thought I was well I took a spill rollerblading. A chiropractor initially got me upright, but low back pain just lingered and continued to get worse over the last seven years.
A couple of years ago I decided to really get serious and declared that this would be the year I would get the pain out of my lower back for good! I had an MRI which revealed just the normal bit of aging arthritis but nothing that explained this nagging lower back pain.
Over the next few years I was on my mission to try to get my back fixed; chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage, spine injections, core strength training exercises, ice packs, and last but not least, a vibrating pillow.
"A couple of months ago I made a last-ditch effort and checked the internet again for a local Bowen therapist, found you, and the rest is history. I can't explain how or why this therapy works but it does. The Bowen Technique is so sublime, it's sometimes hard to believe it works; as though pain should be issued to relieve pain. I'm at a 0-3 pain most of every day now. Bowen Therapy worked for me and I can't say enough good things about this therapy.
"I just want to say 'Thank you'. The Bowen Therapy really made a difference in healing my ankle. On April 11th, I injured my ankle while walking around downtown Geneva with the wrong shoes on. I had hoped my ankle would heal on its own, but after a month, I still was in a lot of pain and my ankle was visibly swollen. I finally went to see a foot specialist. She took x-rays (nothing conclusive) and gave me a 'boot' to wear to stabilize the ankle so it could heal. When I wore the boot, my ankle did not hurt, but as soon as I took it off, it hurt again. Also, the boot was causing problems with my back and hips since the shoes I wore on my right foot weren't the same height as the boot.
"I was still in pain by the middle of June, so the foot specialist was going to send me to have an MRI on my ankle to see why it was taking so long to heal. She also said I might need surgery to repair the damage I had done. That's when I called you to see if just maybe Bowen Therapy could help heal my ankle.
"Of course, after the first session, I was in quite a bit of pain. But that diminished within a few days. After the second session, I was feeling much better. I also stopped wearing the boot after the first Bowen Therapy session. I am feeling just fine and have been pain-free for about one month now. I'm back walking on the treadmill and doing everything I was doing before I injured my ankle. Thank you! I still can't believe that just two Bowen Therapy sessions was all it took to stop the pain and begin the healing process."
Pregnancy: nausea, sciatic pain, back pain, knee pain, headaches etc.
"I began treatment when I was about 5 months pregnant. During my treatment I had hardly any complaints, aches, or pains (hard to believe). I worked close to 60 hours a week until I gave birth to my son. Bowen Therapy helped to reduce / eliminate nausea, sciatic pain, back pain, knee pain, headaches, swelling, fatigue, heartburn, shortness of breath, and overall wellbeing. During my pregnancy I was never sick!
"After giving birth, I resumed Bowen Therapy; it helped my body realign itself and heal more quickly. My son also received treatment after birth and now only wakes once a night to eat. He is a sound sleeper and doesn't fuss much. I attribute my safe and quick labor and delivery to Lisa and Bowen Therapy; I will never go through a pregnancy without it! No mother or mother-to-be should be without Lisa or Bowen Therapy!!
"Along with Lisa, the office staff is always smiling, happy to see you, energetic, and ready to help. They treat you as though you're the only patient they're attending to. The office is always quiet and relaxing; you leave feeling refreshed and more energetic. Lisa is very in tune to how you and your body are receiving treatment. She is AWESOME!"
