Thank you all for responding. There were so many who did and... yes, I am new and I guess I have offended a few people. I apologize and hope that you understand that my intention is only to help people like myself who have Fibromyalgia. I was diagnosed a year ago, after suffering several years of pain first. I was also diagnosed with MS (which Bowen has not cured). In case you find this odd too, it is not uncommon for MS patients to have Fibromyalgia as well and I am a patient of Dr. R. Philip Kinkel of the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Boston, MA, if you need to confirm this. If some of you find Bowen "odd", please read all the replies to my email. I guess I am not the only one who has had success. As I said, it seemed like a krazy procedure to me when I was having it done, but it worked and I only wish for others who suffer to feel the same relief. I "can" talk from experience and that is what I did. As far as cost, it cost me $70.00 a session and worth every penny I spent to have no pain. My insurance did not cover it, nor does it cover message therapy, accupunture, chiropractic, etc. which I believe many patients have tried for relief of Fibromyalgia. I hope that this will change one day. I did not know that Medicare covers this. That is wonderful! I have six children (4 step children and 2 daughters). I really do not have the money for this, but had to work this into my budget and I am not sorry that I did. Your health is everything! I went four times (only needed two), but continued my therapy because I had lower back pain from a car accident, and this also worked to completely rid me of the pain. I plan on going every several months (not that I have to) just to maintain my overall health. It does help with some of the symptoms of MS as well. The woman who performed my Bowen is an LPN and Massage Therapist. She does practice Reiki, but did not say that it was the same as Bowen. I will have to ask her about that. She will be certified in January along with 10 other therapists in this area. I guess the Board of Certification will only make the trip into a particular part of the country if there are at least 10 Therapists who are to be certified. Good luck to all! I only hope and pray that this therapy will work for you too.
