“I am 85 years young and tend to suffer from arthritis in my lower body and hands which can be quite uncomfortable, especially in the colder weather.
I have been going to Caroline for my Bowen Therapy for about three years now, and the treatment I have received has helped keep me active enough to enable me to continue going on holidays, coach trips and day tours with friends as well as meeting people of my own age.
I have been a devotee of Bowen Therapy for a few years and when my practitioner moved overseas I was devastated.
Fortunately, before he left, he referred me to Caroline who is not only wonderful, but she is so gentle!
Thank you Caroline for my gentle ‘services’, which keep this vintage ‘model T Ford’ on the road.

Neck Pain, Headaches, Anxiety
“After being a passenger in a car crash that knocked me unconscious 2.5 years ago I have experienced bad headaches, back pain, insomnia, anxiety and more. I’ve tried physio, osteo, chiro, kinesiology, acupuncture and remedial massage – all with minor to no relief.
After looking into Bowen Therapy, I was referred to Caroline. I was reluctant yet hopeful that I would get results. In just 2 sessions I was pain free, stress free and able to go back to my normal activities ! Caroline is my “miracle worker” and I couldn’t be happier I have found her. I will never see another physician again!”

Sciatica, Piriformis Syndrome
“About 18 months ago I was suffering from sciatica and was told by my GP that I would have to give up golf and would more than likely have to live with some level of pain for the rest of my life. On good days the pain was around 2-3/10 and on bad days 9/10. On the bad days I would take myself off to the physiotherapist.
Caroline encouraged me to try Bowen Therapy.I have to say I was the ultimate skeptic but agreed to a treatment.Reluctantly I conceded some improvement after one treatment. My pain level had reduced to 5-6/10 on the bad days and gradually reduced to zero over a 5 week treatment plan.
Caroline continues to treat me on a regular basis and that helps to keep my back muscles relaxed. I have also suffered from time to time with swollen ankles and this has been completely resolved in one Bowen treatment..”

“Huge thank you to Caroline for successfully treating my very painful knee.
After a poor experience with another therapist I was delighted to find Caroline at Igniting Inner Health where the experience was great and the result is fantastic – pain free !
I have subsequently had treatments for other ailments with equally positive results. – Thanks.”

“After suffering from Plantar Fasciitis for two months I started Bowen Therapy with Caroline. Weekly and then fortnightly treatments greatly reduced and finally eliminated my pain within two months.My doctor originally diagnosed the condition and told me it would be at least 6 to 18 months for a full recovery.
I have also suffered headaches and migraines for many years due to worn vertebrae in the neck. This pain has greatly reduced in severity and frequency since receiving the Bowen Therapy. I now only have treatments as and when I feel it is necessary, just to keep my body “tuned” up.”

TMJ (Jaw) Problems – (Temporomandibular Joint)
“I have been seeing Caroline for over a year now and can highly recommend her services and expertise. This is my story….
2 years ago after suffering an excruciating migraine attack at work, I was diagnosed, by my G.P., with trigeminal neuralgia. This is a chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal nerve in your face. I was referred to the Gold Coast hospital for a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis and I was given the all clear. However the pain and headaches continued intermittently. One night the pain was so severe that I ended up in hospital and eventually prescribed two types of drugs to control the pain, Endone and Tegretol.
It was then Caroline recommended that I come and try the Bowen Technique.
I saw her only twice and the effects were immediate, I came off my medication and the pain has not come back to that level ever since. The left side of my neck and shoulder right down to my shins would flare up in pain and tightness on a regular basis. After a couple of hospital visits to see if corrective surgery was required I was referred to my local dentist for a custom made splint to wear at night to relax my jaw muscles.
Before the splint was fitted Caroline adjusted my jaw to the correct position to ensure the splint would not put my jaw out again. On that visit she purely worked on my jaw and the left shoulder pain and left body stiffness was completely resolved as a result.
I have continued to see Caroline for maintenance. I can confirm that my jaw and the pain I used to get constantly has most definitely gone away and good riddance, and last but more importantly I am drug free !
I cannot rate Caroline and her unique technique any more highly”

Lumbar Back, Hip, Coccyx Issues
“September 2016 : The first time I tried Bowen Therapy was a few weeks ago. Having had various treatments over the past few years (osteopathy, physiotherapy, cranial-sacral therapy, massage and acupuncture), to treat a tailbone, hip and lower back injury, I now wish I had tried Bowen earlier.
After my first treatment I had a 50% improvement and every single muscle in my body relaxed. This was the quickest my body has ever responded to a single treatment. Over the next couple of weeks I was able to wean myself off the endone, ibuprofen and celebrex, which I had been taking to get me through the day.
I continued to improve after each treatment and found the stretching exercises Caroline gave me, worked well with the Bowen Therapy treatments. I am so pleased I gave Bowen a try and found Caroline. I can’t stop telling all my family and friends about it.”

Pain after a fall
“I had a fall six months ago, where I damaged the nerves in my buttocks, leg and ankle, and I have been in pain since, getting worse – not better. I had x-rays, CT scans, ultrasound, MRI, needles and pain killers by the box, to no avail.
All I wanted to do was crawl into bed all the time – laying down was my only relief. I had no quality of life. Then a friend recommended Bowen Therapy, and after one treatment I was pain free for four days, I could sit, something I hadn’t done for months and then the pain crept back not as bad as before, which proved I needed more treatments. Caroline my therapist had said because I had left it for so long it would probably take a few visits to be totally pain free. Believe me when I say Bowen works I can’t thank my friend enough, and my therapist is magic, highly recommended, wish I had tried sooner and put myself out of all that pain and misery.”
