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.

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
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.
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
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".
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.
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
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,

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.
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
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.
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!
