I went to see Kate for Bowen treatment for a long standing back injury which was starting to impact on other parts of my body, i.e. hip joint. It was not uncommon for my back to seize about once every two months. I have seen Kate for a few sessions over a period of months and I have not had any reoccurrence of my back problems. I found Bowen therapy to be very gentle especially compared to other back therapies I have had, i.e. osteopathy, and I feel like Bowen treats the whole self not just the immediate symptoms.
Neck and Shoulder Pain
After suffering for several months with some disabling pain in between my neck and left shoulder blade, a friend recommended that I try Bowen Technique. I was not only very gently freed from this impediment with Bowen but, after that, enjoyed weeks of regular re-aligning which had a harmonising effect on my entire being, due to a major change in my life.
Kate’s treatment is a wonderfully light and focussed, she is full of good humour and lots of knowledge about the human body and soul, homeopathy and other natural remedies. A fantastic person to have by your side in times of transition and trouble. Having now moved out of the area, I very much regret that I can’t have more of her. I wish I could get that sort of Bowen technique treatment here!

Pain and Numbness in Hands
I consulted Kate about numbness and pain in my hands, which was severe enough to sometimes wake me up at night. I had no previous knowledge or experience of the Bowen Technique, but assumed it would be similar to osteopathy. I found it to be much more holistic in approach, and although there was some physical manipulation it was extremely gentle and just over muscles and tendons. Following a couple of sessions the symptoms had virtually disappeared, and Kate was able to suggest ways of avoiding a recurrence of the problem.
Kate has a very supportive and empathetic approach, and I looked forward to the sessions, which were very pleasant and relaxing. Kate has a wide knowledge and understanding of health issues in general, and I have no hesitation in recommending her. I have recently begun to have problems with my left shoulder, and had no hesitation in approaching Kate for a consultation.
Recurrent Headaches, Neck & Shoulder Tension
I was recommended to try Bowen therapy by a friend on the basis that “You feel like nothing’s happening, but it works.”. Having had reduced mobility and recurrent headaches from a very tight shoulder for some years on which I had regular massage, osteopathy and acupuncture, leading to only temporary relief, I tried Bowen as a last resort. Being used to invasive, often uncomfortable, treatment, I was highly sceptical as to how such light touches could be effective: how wrong I was!
The morning after my first Bowen therapy session with Kate I woke up pain and headache free, and with more mobility than I could remember in a long time. My very active lifestyle and lots of business travel mean that my shoulder can still stiffen up, but regular sessions with Kate ensure that I am kept mobile and pain free.
I would recommend Bowen therapy – and Kate in particular – for the treatment of specific problems and for “general maintenance” for an active life well into middle and old age. My time with Kate is precious, not just because of the physical results, but for the sense of well-being she generates.

Plantar Fascitis / Foot pain
I had a very painful bout of Plantar Fascitis which I just couldn’t seem to shift and the pain was, by times, excruciating. I saw Kate for one Bowen treatment and felt a lot better the next day. I went back for a second session a week later and the pain was virtually gone and certainly much more manageable within a couple of days of that second session. I’m not sure how Bowen works, but it certainly does!
Persistent Back Problems & General Wellbeing
I initially had Bowen Technique from Kate just for a general well-being treatment, like a service if you will, to realign my body. I was quite amazed at the difference it made, despite the fact it such a gentle treatment. I felt wonderful afterwards. Since then I have had further treatments to help various injuries… a previously persistent and recurring back problem (over 20 years) now seems to have become a thing of the past.
I can’t recommend Kate highly enough. She is wonderfully thorough yet gentle and I’m amazed at the results from my Bowen Technique treatment, I always feel blissfully relaxed both during and after a session.

Recovery Aid from Strenuous Sports Exercise
Kate, Just a note to say many thanks for the treatment offered after this year’s Bridgnorth Sponsored Walk. As you are probably aware the walk is from Bridgnorth to the Brown Clee then returning to Bridgnorth a distance of approx 22 miles, the course is very undulating and puts immense stress on legs and other limbs.
I have completed the walk 7 times now but fortunately for the past 2 years when I have returned to Bridgnorth I have been greeted by you and your colleagues offering treatment using the Bowen Technique. Following just a short gentle treatment my legs and limbs feel revived and I have no pain the following day!!! This is unlike previous years where it has taken me up to a week to recover.
I highly recommend the Bowen Technique.
I received Bowen therapy from Kate Fullerlove whilst I was suffering from intense localised pain from a long term kidney condition. My energy levels were depleted, I felt frequently tired and was low in spirit.
The Bowen technique was a revelation! This subtle and non-intrusive therapy had a profound effect; lessening pain, balancing my overall energy and relieving the tiredness. My posture improved and I even began sleeping better. In all honesty Bowen therapy helped me feel happier again!
Kate is a wonderful therapist – clear and attentive, with an inquiring mind and a true passion for helping others. I would wholeheartedly recommend both her and the Bowen technique.
Earlier this year I had persistent stiffness in my shoulder and was suffering emotional trauma after losing a close relative. I consulted Kate Fullerlove and had several Bowen treatments. It was a very relaxing experience.
After 3 treatments the shoulder was improved and I found I was able to release my inner tensions; I felt totally cleansed, spiritually and emotionally, and I felt able to move on. It was an amazing experience. After the next session the shoulder was completely better.
Kate was very understanding, explained everything clearly and was completely professional. I find it hard to believe that such a gentle treatment could have such a dramatic effect on my life; I will certainly consult Kate in future to retain the balance in my life.
Frozen Shoulder & Replacement Knee Problems
The pain in my shoulder and upper arm were preventing me from lifting my arm, and I had a ‘cold’ area below my knee. My arm/shoulder is completely better and I’ve had an 80% improvement in my knee. I’ve found the Bowen Technique a gentle and relaxing treatment. Combined with homeopathy this has led to me experiencing a general feeling of well being and a more positive outlook, and the pain and discomfort has eased almost 100%. I had a full knee replacement 2 years ago and my problems are still improving.

Knee Pain & Swelling
I was experiencing a lot of pain with kneeling and was not able to get up. I have been able to do both of these fully since having Bowen treatment, with reduced pain and swelling, more freedom of movement and I now have no pain on walking.

Lower Back & Buttock Pain
Pain in my lower back and buttock which prevented me from driving and gave me limited movement with walking, getting out of bed, etc. I am able to do everything fully since the treatment and am fully recovered. I have benefitted greatly from my Bowen treatment and have been recommending it to many people.
GB, Bridgnorth area
I have suffered from golfer’s elbow on and off for the last six years, as a result of the stresses put on my arms/tendons from kitesurfing. Having tried osteopathy and numerous other treatments, I had two Bowen sessions with Kate on the recommendation of my sister. Despite being rather sceptical about the nature of the treatment, since then I have had not had a single reoccurrence of the injury – and I’m now kitesurfing several times a week. Highly recommended.

Digestion Troubles & Joint Pain
I came to Kate through a search on the internet, and whilst having had some experience of alternative therapies, I remained somewhat sceptical. I must say that my scepticism has been completely quashed, along with an amazing improvement in the symptoms which instigated the initial contact.
Kate is very easy to “work” with, and she comes with the double benefit of not only being well versed in the Bowen technique but also is an experienced homeopath. For me this has been an unexpected bonus, and by putting together the two disciplines Kate offers so much more. I am convinced that it is the combination of both the Bowen ‘moves’ and the remedies that have given me a much improved lifestyle, enabling me to be more active and feel much healthier. Well done, Kate – keep it up.
MS, Morville area
I had a Bowen treatment with Kate with the idea of having a general pick-me-up. I had never had Bowen before and as I was feeling generally run down, I was curious to try it. Two months previously I had had a tooth extracted and my gum was still uncomfortable as if it hadn’t quite healed, but I had just accepted that this was a rather long healing process. After the treatment I felt extremely relaxed and slept like a log that night. The most unexpected result happened within two days of my treatment – a bit of tooth poked out of my gum where the tooth had been extracted – almost like a new tooth. After the initial shock, I pulled it (with tweezers!) and a 5mm long slither of tooth came out! With that residual tooth slither out, the gum discomfort was almost instantly gone and I had this overwhelming feeling of relief. As the tooth had been extracted 2 MONTHS earlier and my Bowen treatment was 2 DAYS earlier, I can only conclude that it was the Bowen that somehow removed/released that niggling irritation in my life.
Thank you Kate – very highly recommended!
