Releasing negative thoughts creates a vacuum thus clearing the way for good things to fill the void. 

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle.

And remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand.

Faith is the daring of the soul to go farther than it can see.

There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."

Life is change.
Growth is optional.
Choose wisely.

Hating people is like burning down your house to get rid of a rat.

Our life is what our thoughts make of it.

Constant effort and frequent mistakes are the stepping stones to genius.

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.

Good friends are good for your health!

Health is better than wealth

Client Success Stories . . .

I have been blessed with really good health and it had been many years since I have had any kind of an injury. Frankly that's a good thing, because I have a very low tolerance for pain and zero patience for the interruption that a medical event can cause. Unfortunately, early this year I got a severe whiplash. After x-rays  the doctor believed that the extent of the injuries were to the soft tissues, and sent me home with muscle relaxants and pain pills and the recommendation that I not repeat the event that caused the injury.

I couldn't believe how much impact this had on me. Getting out of a car, trying to wash my hair, or just trying to get a good nights sleep was difficult. I was also surprised how long it was taking to get any relief. The pain pills weren't really helping and the muscle relaxant put me to sleep for days.  I soon knew that I would need to find an alternative treatment.  A friend made a recommendation that I should make an appointment with Beverly for a Bowen treatment. After the very first treatment the level of pain that I was experiencing was dramatically less. I requested two additional follow up treatment sessions because I wanted to make sure that I was completely over this pain.

Since the last treatment I have never felt any neck pain and have returned to my very physically active lifestyle. I would recommend treatment with Bowen from Beverly without any hesitation.

I have osteoarthritis and inoperable damage in my lower back. I have a lot of pain and it is constant. I was invited to try the Bowen Treatment to lessen my pain. I have had two treatments so far. I felt very little change after my first treatment. My second treatment was very different. It cut my pain in half. Amazing. I wasn't expecting that much change, I walked out feeling so much better than when I walked in. That was yesterday and my pain is still much less. I'm very excited now. Thank you Beverly for the opportunity to try this treatment.

Judy B., San Diego Bowen Patient

I'm a 37 year old male suffering for MS and have been receiving Bowen at least twice a month for 31/2 years. When I relocated to San Diego about a year ago, there were very few practicing Bowen in the area. This was upsetting as I count on Bowen treatments to keep my body in balance and for relief from the acute symptoms.

Upon receiving a treatment session from Beverly, I was quite pleased by her knowledge of the Bowen Technique. I look forward to continuing my sessions with her as long as I live in San Diego. It is the only true mind and body balancing treatment I have found. If you have not tried Bowen yet or have had an unsuccessful treatment in the past, I strongly urge you to see Beverly. She will be diligent, sincere, and resourceful in helping you get to a comfortable state with all your aliments.

Dear Beverly,
I recently had my first Bowen treatment from you and feel compelled to relate some of my thoughts. During the procedure, I had the feeling that nothing so unobtrusive could have much affect on the lower lumbar pain which I had lived with, at varying degrees of severity, for over twenty-five years. When the session was over I felt relaxed and kind of thirsty, but frankly I suspected that I had just been sold something between a very gentle message and a bottle of old fashioned "snake oil" (figuratively speaking of course). As the next few days passed, I noticed increased water consumption and some really good nights of sleep, -maybe a little less back pain.

About ten days after the treatment I walked down a set of stairs at work and jumped off the bottom step landing in the middle of the isle with a couple of jogging steps. At this point I realized what I had done and actually said to myself "What the hell are you doing?" Unconscious moves like this, over the years, had resulted in my back "going out" subjecting me to a few days of white knuckled, breath taking, eye clinching spasms. These resulted in the usual line of doctors, bed rest, drugs, chiropractors, physical therapists and more drugs. Anyway, there I stood wondering why I felt NO back pain, then trying to remember how many days I had gone since even thinking about my back. At this point I realized that I have just had more consecutive days with absolutely no back pain than I had for the past twenty-odd years.

I know my back problems are not completely gone, but they are less a part of my life now than they have been for a long, long time. Everything happens for a reason and I know that I came across you and your ability because the time was right. If I were asked to describe you in a word, I could offer no more descriptive term or higher praise than "Healer".

Thank You,
Chuck Sales


A few years ago I was having lunch with two of my friends whom I've known since elementary school. In the course of our conversation I mentioned to them that I had recently been diagnosed with a frozen shoulder, meaning that I could not move my left arm beyond my side to reach up towards the middle of my back. Needless to say, I could not fasten my bra and was having difficulty dressing.

One of my friends, a registered nurse, told me about the Bowen Technique and offered to treat me for free. I have to admit that I was skeptical, but thought I would try it, especially since it was free. I figured, at the very least, it was much better than having surgery.

I must tell you that I was soon a believer. After just a few treatments I could see and feel my range of motion increase. After a number of treatments, I had my full range of motion back and still do, to this day.   The Bowen treatments are very soothing and relaxing. I would highly recommend the Bowen Technique and Beverly Reyes.

Dear Ms. Reyes: 

Just a note to let you know how wonderful you were with my mom.  She had never really been much for alternative medicine but as a cancer patient she had nothing to lose trying out the "Bowen Treatment."  To her amazement and our delight, she really did get relief from the pain she was suffering in the advanced stages of her disease.  You were so gentle and comforting to our "no-nonsense" era mom and we all appreciate what this wonderful treatment did for her. 

With much gratitude,
Terrie Natan, Thousand Oaks, CA


My ears, jaw, and sinus hurt so bad I could hardly think!  It was very painful to open my mouth when trying to eat, and when I did my inner ears hurt, too.  I was so congested that taking anti-inflammatory drugs and other medications had become my way of starting the day.  My work as a triage nurse was suffering because I couldn't breathe and it hurt to talk.  I had tried everything including surgery.  After surgery I felt 50% better but not completely free of pain and congestion, the congestion being the worst.

I heard a colleague talking about Bowen Therapy and how it helped with the pain of TMJ and had incidentally helped clear the sinuses. I thought why not try it, so I called Beverly for an appointment, and she saw me the next day. 


Beverly had me lay down on a table on my stomach.  Funny place to start since my ears, jaw, and sinus hurt!  She did a few basic relaxation moves and then had me turn over on my back.  A couple of moves on my head and neck and then she moved her work down to my knees!  I didn't understand but thought "what the heck, just go along with it".  I immediately felt cool and tingly and very relaxed. 


Beverly then proceeded to do gentle moves on my jaw, sinus' and neck.  After the treatment . . to my total amazement, I COULD ACTUALLY BREATHE!   


My jaw pain was greatly improved.  By the next day I had very little jaw pain, which completely resolved  by the end of the week.  This wonderful treatment kept me pain and medication free for 2 months.  At that time I returned to Beverly for a "tune up", and was good to go for several months thereafter. 


Now when I feel myself getting stopped up I call for an appointment right away before my sinus' and jaw become inflamed.

I know that Bowen helped me. I've only had 2 little twinges in my neck since you last treated me and those never fully took over.... remember how I would lock up for 3 to 5 days? Man! Was I in pain! I think the Bowen has changed my body's reaction to that particular spasm because it just doesn't take control like it used to. Did I ever say thank you????? THANK YOU!
