Relief of back ache and knee pain. With 40 years of medical experience I was very sceptical of Bowen etc, but could not believe the improvement / relief of my back and knee after a single treatment.

I often liken a treatment with Jeanie as magic - but its not magic, it's skill. Skill in the hands of an extremely intuitive practitioner. Jeanie’s knowledge and experience use these gentle techniques to encourage the body to heal – dislodging old injuries and blockages and thus freeing the body of pain on many levels. The treatment is so pleasant and calming and Jeanie so reassuring that one literally feels uplifted – its amazing.

I have always had poor posture, and some back pain particularly since having children with all the lifting and carrying that comes with the job! After treatment from another practitioner I had back and muscle spasms, potentially from a trapped nerve.
After a course of Bowen Treatment with Jeanie my back has greatly improved, from being in great discomfort which interfered with my daily routines to feeling a significant improvement!
I am very impressed that a treatment which is so gentle and non- invasive is so effective! I cannot recommend it enough!

Back pain and muscle spasm

I was scheduled for a spinal fusion operation at the age of 36! I couldn't stand straight, was in chronic pain. After treatment with Bowen Technique I can now do anything except running. Even managed pregnancy and natural birth, Surgery not required and I am fit and healthy. Bowen Technique is my Miracle Cure.

Back pain. Age 42

Have just returned from a 45 minute walk over the moors, despite the weather, I was overjoyed it was pain free, also no stiffness on my return home. I can not thank you enough for all you have done, your expertise and caring approach to the problems I presented you with has been truly wonderful.

Occasionally, for no apparent reason, muscular pains affect my movement and general wellbeing. I put these down to a variety of injuries sustained during my younger years in the military.

Invariably, one, or at most two, Bowen sessions with Jeanie will remove the pain entirely and generally leave me refreshed and ‘overhauled’.

I am very familiar with principles underlying energy healing and have experienced a number methods and practitioners. I rank both Bowen and Jeanie high in my list of ‘go-to’ practitioners and therapies whenever my body signals that it is out-of-sorts.

After recently seriously stubbing my toe on a pavement stone in London, which affected the balance of my back, one session with Jeanie not only righted the problem, but it also gave me one on the most memorable healing sessions ever : practitioner and client become one energetic whole.

Jeanie’s gentle, but very focused, approach to applying her healing arts makes her a very special therapist, somebody I would not hesitate to recommend.

It has cleared my head when Jeanie treasted a blocked sinus. That condition has not returned.

Blocked Sinus

I have been suffering from anxiety for some years but over the past few months I felt considerably worse, so much so that I felt I couldn’t work.

After treatment I felt totally relaxed, stress and anxiety free. I felt more positive. Jeanie made a few suggestions to things I needed to try/change in my daily lifestyle/diet. I had had 3 sessions with Jeanie now and I feel so much better. Today I have actually felt good, like my old self again. The treatment and advice she gave me was excellent. The support I had from my GP and the NHS was none. I would recommend Jeanie to anyone, She has helped me through I time when I felt I was rock bottom. A big thank you!

Anxiety & Stress

I went to Jeanie with an ankle problem. I was unable to put any weight onto my foot and was in a lot of discomfort. I limped into the clinic to see Jeanie, who gave me a treatment combining Bowen and the new Emmett Technique. It only took one treatment, and I walked normally out of the clinic and my ankle has been fine ever since.

Ankle Pain

I have been fortunate enough to meet with Jeanie and benefit from the amazing Bowen and Emmett techniques. Jeanie is so intuitive and my treatments have given me so much and on many levels. I am in my early 60’s and train Spanish stallions each day- I did suffer ankle problems which could be quite painful. Through the treatment my ankle has become much more flexible and mobile. My teaching involves running and turning with my horses at liberty- so this freedom of movement is so important for me. Huge thanks to Jeanie as I feel so much more comfortable now.

Ankle problems

Migraine sufferer for over 30 years. Jeanie has calmed my whole body down. I worry a lot. My job is quite stressful, now I take ‘situations’ in my stride. My migraines are not so frequent and I no longer have the sickness with them. It is just a headache.

Personally I think Bowen treatment is far better than a massage. The treatment is working within your body for a long time afterwards. If you come with an additional ache/pain, Jeanie will treat this as she works on your original condition.

CG, 52
Migraine with sickness, stress.

Reason For treatment: General feeling of fatigue and unwell. Aches in most joints especially knees, shoulders and neck area. Breathlessness. Limited concentration. Built up over years.
After Bowen treatment with Jeanie: Feel calmer, improved sleep, headaches stopped, breathing improved, and shoulder muscles more relaxed. General wellbeing improved. All symptoms improved or disappeared.
I had no previous knowledge of Bowen Technique. I found it a non-intrusive and deeply relaxing experience with positive results. Jeanie is a professional and understanding practitioner

Fatigue, Aches, Breathlessness

I have suffered back pain on and off for 30 years. The past five years it has got worse and i couldn’t walk far and it was getting me down. I had tried several courses of treatment (other therapies) but none worked. Then i found Jeanie, and after about four treatments of massage (and Emmett) i have little pain and i can walk much further. I have lots more energy, am walking more upright and feel much happier. I would recommend Jeanie to anyone and have done.
Thank you so much Jeanie, at last i have found the right treatment for me.

Massage with Emmett Technique - Back Pain

I had pain & mobility problems since 35 years. Had 2 knee replacements. Great discomfort and my balance was off. I was stooping when I walked, down in spirits and not able to sit down straight.
After treatment I was able to stand up straight. Improvement on walking, particularly up and down stairs. Feeling of wellbeing. Great improvement in sitting down – no longer feel as if perching on a seat. Pain reduced in joints. I have had other treatments but found Bowen to be the most gentle and my body responds well. It has been a good friend to me over the 5 years since i discovered Bowen. I continue to have Bowen at regular periods.

Knee pain, mobility problems, posture

I had a problem with my shoulder, which created a burning pain in my arm when I tried to use it. I had seen a chiropractor and an acupuncturist. This had helped a bit, but I was still in pain. I went to see Jeanie and she used the Emmett treatment. It took three sessions with Jeanie and now it is so much better. It’s a gentle treatment; all you feel is a little twitch, but it has really helped me. Jeanie did a grand job! I can stretch up and down and to all intents and purposes my arm is back to normal which is a great relief.

I also had a hip problem which was so bad at times that ii was walking with sticks and couldn’t get up if I sat down in the evening. I saw Jeanie for one Bowen treatment which eased it up considerably. Jeanie’s techniques have worked really well with treatments form the other therapists I have seen, thank you Jeanie!

Shoulder and Hip Problems

A heavy fall on my patio , caused an injury to the left shoulder. The left arm would not get above a 90 degree angle. I had Bowen( & Emmett) treatments with Jeanie to back, arm and shoulder. Every visit saw an improvement and gradually brought the condition under control. Six months after the accident all is good and back to normal. Jeanie has also treated my wife and daughter and brought much relief. Throughout the time of treatment (injury was initially very reluctant to respond) Jeanie was very encouraging, utterly professional, all of which gave me back the full use of my arm and shoulder – its completely pain free.

Shoulder Injury

Wow, that was amazing to see the difference in my frozen shoulder!
I was amazed the difference that you could make with just a light touch for a minute or two to a recalcitrant frozen shoulder I had had for nearly 3 years...... awesome! It must be magic!

Anxiety

Jeanie is an extremely sensitive bowen therapist and "knows" what your body needs. A very relaxing treatment with maximum benefit. I have seen Jeanie at The Rose & Crown Clinic and The Barnstaple Chiropractic Clinic, both times the treament was very beneficial. Top qualities: Great Results, Good Value.

Liz Gilmour
Bowen and Neck/Arm pain

I went to Jeanie suffering from a bad neck, which was causing aching down my entire arm. She listened carefully and had a really nice, kind manner as she asked questions to establish the best remedy. She made me feel at ease and comfortable. The treatment was very gentle, but very effective, freeing up after about an hour and almost completely better the following day. I would certainly recommend both Jeanie and Bowen. Thanks Jeanie, I will be back for more TLC. Top qualities: Great Results , Personable.

Caroline Le Messurier
Bowen and Neck/Arm pain

I booked a course of 3 Bowen treatments after work related stress was causing me sleepless nights, tearfulness and IBS. I had tried other routes to relive symptoms but none were successful.

After the first session with Jeanie I was sleeping more peacefully, and felt generally calmer and in control.

When I attended my second session I had an infection in my tooth that my dentist had advised I would need a root canal treatment for, and I was taking painkillers every 2 hours to ease the pain. After this session with Jeanie I did not need the take any more painkillers. After the 3rd session I was able to eat in the right side of my mouth- something I had been unable to do since a filling I had had some 9 months previously.
I feel generally more able to cope and have been sleeping better since the treatment.

Bowen and Work related stress, sleeplessness, tooth pain

Jeanie taught me a very simple self-help technique in order to help my breathing ( I am slightly asthmatic) when I have a cold and my asthma flares up, just a few set moves and my breathing is easier. I still use that technique when ever I need to, certainly cuts down on the inhalers that I have to use during a cold.

Bowen and breathing

I had pain in knees for several years, which prevented me running, riding a bike. Would get sudden sharp stabbing pains on stairs.

After 3 Bowen treatments pain virtually disappeared. Delighted with outcome of treatment. Jeanie Blackall is very professional and caring. I enjoyed the sessions, found them very relaxing.

Emmett, Massage & Back Pain

I have found Jeanie to be an excellent therapist. Jeanie is approachable, professional and takes time to get to know her clients. I have had several treatments (Bowen Therapy) with Jeanie all of which have been successful.
Jeanie is my first port of call for back problems and I would highly recommend her to others.
Top qualities: Great Results , Good Value.

Bowen and Back pain

I have suffered from a bad back for 8 years, and despite many traditional treatments it never seemed to improve. Bowen has made a huge difference. Despite being totally non invasive, it seems to reboot my entire body. It is quite miraculous, and extremely relaxing.

Pam W. Age 65
Bowen and Back Pain

I had a swollen disc which compressed on my nerves and muscles at bottom of back. I was on lots of painkillers in so much pain it was unbearable for over 1 year. I was bent right over I could not even get dressed or walk unaided.


After 3 Bowen treatments I was upright and able to walk unaided and could play with my 3 children and could drive again. I stopped taking painkillers - it was amazing.

I didn’t know Bowen existed but I’m so grateful that I found out about it. I’ve got my life back thanks to Bowen treatment and of course to Jeanie for doing the treatment.
