Testimonials From Sonia’s Happy Clients
Inflammation in the Jaw
I am an athlete who ice skates for Australia. I came to Sonia with extreme pain and inflammation in my jaw and was unable to do any training. I tried many treatments to help the condition such as chiropractic and physio. It was a last resort for me to try Bowen therapy.
The results have been astounding after only a few sessions. Sonia found that my jaw was out of alignment and she recommended a mouth guard which I wear on my way to training to help keep my jaw balanced. I now have no pain whatsoever and I am able to compete in an international competition this month. (June 2016).
My whole body feels balanced now and pain free and my tight hamstrings are no longer a problem either.

Asthma – 4 year old girl
I took my daughter to see Sonia as a family member recommended Bowen therapy to me.
She was suffering symptoms of asthma, had a chesty cough and was having to use steroids to control attacks. I was getting worried about the medication she was having to take. After her first little treatment she was falling over sometimes, lost her appetite but slept through the night that night. Since that day she stopped coughing, and only has her preventer now (no steroid ingredients).
Even though she had a cold she has not had the symptoms that she would normally have. She is taking Vitamin C and cod liver oil to assist her immunity during the weather shift.

I was thirty weeks pregnant and leading an active life with work, home and my six year old. I had sciatica for 2 months and felt that even walking was a struggle. One Bowen treatment with Sonia took the sciatica away and freed my hips up. Also my energy levels improved dramatically. I have kept up Bowen through the last trimester and owe my ability to keep my life in balance physically and emotionally to regular treatment.
My grateful thanks to you for treating me with the Bowen Technique. I was diagnosed with arthritis in my back and advised to take pain relief tablets 4 hourly – with no effect. I highly recommend your treatment with Bowen which has completely relieved me of the intense pain in my back and legs.
I fell out of a loft onto the stair-rail on the stairs, right onto my coccyx bone. The pain was unbearable. After one treatment the pain subsided dramatically and two more treatments has helped the pain to completely disappear and my coccyx to heal.
Local painter and decorator Andy Snell suffered with asthma for 17 years. After 6 treatments he is free of the condition and no longer relies on his inhaler. “It feels so good to go for a run without getting breathless. It’s amazing!”

Back and Shoulder Pain
Dee Why resident, and beauty salon owner Karen Johnson suffered with back and shoulder pain due to her job. “After my first treatment with Sonia I felt relief from the constant pain I felt in my body. It’s wonderful to be free of pain. Whenever I feel the tension build up I just have a treatment to relieve it”.
Karen asked if Bowen Therapy could help her five year old daughter Bridie’s ear infection and cough that wouldn’t go away and it did help her to be free of these conditions. Her mum said “I was so happy when Bridie finally stopped coughing and could sleep though the night. Antibiotics just didn’t seem to work for her”.

After having Bowen a few times when my neck muscles went into spasm and finding it worked really well, I tried it again after I started to experience hot flushes. It immediately cooled me down and after 3 sessions they went away.
When I’m lying on the table having Bowen, I feel like an elixir of relaxation courses through my body, it’s better than any massage, it’s gentle yet powerful and I would highly recommend it. Sonia is amazing!

I have suffered from migraines all my adult life. I have seen many specialists over the years and take preventative medication to improve my quality of life. When I first came to Sonia’s clinic I was very sceptical.
I have found the use of Bowen Therapy a very useful tool in the prevention of migraine attacks. Bowen therapy helps me to manage one of my main triggers – STRESS! I would recommend Bowen therapy to anyone, as you have got nothing to lose and everything to gain – an improved quality of life.

As with any therapy the proof is the end result. As a person suffering with Parkinson’s Disease, I was amazed at how my body became completely still throughout the Bowen Therapy session. It completely relaxed me. This is an amazing experience for someone who has a continual tremor. I have been receiving Bowen Therapy from Sonia for nearly 3 years and that hour therapy, is now a highlight of my week. Sonia is a gifted therapist who is genuinely caring about helping people. I know my weekly session with Sonia, is a key part of my healing process.

Back Pain, Neck and Shoulder Problems
Since the age of around 30 (I am now 50) I have had severe lower back pain, neck and shoulder problems all the time with some days worse than others. Due to working in the building trade and bricklayer in my younger days then managing and running Coyle’s with a lot of above shoulder lifting for many years.
Up until 5 years ago I was unable to work full time or go on walks for long periods, usually about 15 minutes, if walking I would have to look for a seat to sit down, as I would be in severe pain most of the time.
Since starting to have Bowen done 5 years ago I no longer have any lower back pain, now I am working full time, I am able to enjoy long walks with my wife, which is great. Now I am playing soccer with the over 35s and loving it.
My wife Debbie said, ‘Bowen has given me my life back’

Neck Tension, Migraine and Shoulder Pain
I have suffered from neck tension, migraine and shoulder pain since I was 12 following a bike accident. Various treatments and therapies have helped over the years, including yoga, which I now teach. Because of my training I can really tune in to my body and help myself, but there are times when I need help for muscle tension and pain.
I have met Sonia in the last 2 years and tried Bowen therapy. I am blown away by it. That tiny movement on specific muscle sites can give immediate release and relief is miraculous. I am now discovering a sense of lightness and freedom in my body that I have never experienced before. The treatment is safe, unintrusive and gentle yet the effects are huge. Sonia provides a relaxing, serene environment and the whole experience is paradise. If you are unable to find relief with current treatment I would strongly recommend Bowen. Sonia tells me it is like ‘resetting a computer’ – just pressing a few ‘buttons’ to re-establish the correct body links.

For many years I had suffered a pain in my left leg, which seemed to be worse at night time. This led to a broken sleep pattern and many painkillers. I was just so tired. This pain would travel up and down my leg and there were times I thought I was going mad as I could never pinpoint exactly where the pain was.
My doctor recommended Physio. I decided instead to give Bowen Treatment a go. That was 18 months ago. I now am free of all painkillers and have a restful night sleep. I can’t believe the difference and sing the praises of Sonia and Bowen Treatment. I would have no hesitation to recommend Bowen to anyone and am so glad I was lucky to find a gentle treatment that helped me.

I suffer with IBS, mainly bloating of the stomach. When I went to see Sonia, at the time my stomach was bloated and very uncomfortable, Sonia treated me with the Emmett Technique and within 30 minutes my stomach was flat to the point it went in instead of out! It was like a miracle I will never forget!

Lower Back Pain
I also suffered with lower back pain, I had Bowen treatment from Sonia, just 40 minutes, and I didn’t suffer again for nearly 2 years. Sonia is amazing, she has magic hands, a true healer who is passionate about what she does, and passionate about genuinely helping others!

Chronic Sinus Infections
I suffered with chronic sinus infections for most of my life, but over the last 5 years it got progressively worse. I would have the most horrible sinus headaches and every time I got a head cold, I would end up with a sinus infection for a few weeks, resulting in taking a course of antibiotics to get rid of the infection.
I would get a sinus infection at least 3 times a year. I tried absolutely everything to try and manage it, but nothing was working. I went to see Sonia about two years ago now and I have not had a sinus infection in the last two years , it has literally changed my life!
Sonia was really a lifesaver for me as anyone with sinus will know that it is quite debilitating and affects all areas of your life. I haven’t had antibiotics or a sinus infection in the last two years and I feel that my body and immune system is at the best it ever has been due to the treatments and I see her every three weeks for a half hour maintenance treatment to keep things under control. I would highly recommend Sonia and Bowen therapy in a heartbeat, they are both amazing!
