"I was in an auto accident in which my back was broken. Because of the severity of my injuries, the doctors said I would never walk again. Through pure grit and determination I have been able to walk; however, severe pain has been my constant companion.
I have suffered acute, chronic pain in my upper and lower back, hips, legs and head, along with limited range of motion; and the poor circulation produced numbness in my arms, legs and feet. All this resulted in sleeping difficulties which made me tired, irritable and ‘foggy headed’. I was discouraged and depressed because I thought I would be this way the rest of my life.
To my delight, the kindness of a friend changed that! She took me to Donna for Bowen Therapy. Surprisingly, after just two sessions, the pain has subsided considerably and the numbness is gone from my legs and feet. I am sleeping much better and have more energy. I’ve also noticed that my thinking is clearer and my nerves have improved.
I will continue with the treatment plan Donna suggested for my situation: 4-6 Bowen sessions 1 week apart (depending on my progress); 2 Bowen treatments 2 weeks apart;1 treatment 3 weeks later; and maintenance once every 4-6 weeks to keep my body balanced.
It is wonderful to wakeup in the morning without pain after having a good night of sleep! I am so grateful for Bowen Therapy, for Donna, and for my friend who introduced me to them"!

"About 10 years ago, I was suddenly struck with vertigo. I was so dizzy I couldn’t move, and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. After many tests and a week in the hospital, the doctors sent me home because they couldn’t find any reason for the vertigo.
I went to a chiropractor hoping an adjustment might help; but the dizziness was as bad as before. I tried everything anyone mentioned and nothing helped until I heard about Donna Davis and Bowen Therapy.
After two Bowen sessions with Donna, the vertigo was gone! I am 84 years old now and continue to have Bowen Therapy for maintenance because it keeps the vertigo at bay and it makes me feel so much better, mentally and physically. It just gives me such sense of well being and I highly recommend Bowen Therapy."
"In 1995, I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; Fibromyalgia was diagnosed in 1998. I was unable to work, had muscle and joint pain throughout my body, and was suffering from constant migraines, respiratory problems, muscle spasms, and many other symptoms. Frequently, I had to use crutches or a cane to get around. I tried many different things: acupuncture, reflexology, physical therapy, and several products claiming to help with joint and muscle pain. Unfortunately, I either had adverse reactions or none at all.
With the first treatment I received from Donna, I noticed a change in my body and felt what it was like to have some kind of relief. As a person who suffers with chronic pain, this was huge! A lot of times, I would come in on crutches or a cane; and after my treatment, I could walk out on my own.
As I continued going to Donna for Bowen Therapy, I was pleased to experience even more relief. In time, my joints felt more secure and I was able to include exercise. I was able to strengthen my body, return to work, and enjoy activities again - including sports.
There’s only one person I call when I have a bad flare-up or relapse - and that’s Donna! I have gone to other facilities for chiropractic or sports treatment from time to time, but none of them have ever been as effective as Bowen Therapy has been for me.
I don’t even want to think of where I would be or what I would feel like without the assistance of this extremely beneficial treatment. Bowen Therapy will be a part of the rest of my life and I thank Donna for helping me to have a better quality of life for the last 13 years."
When Sandy came for Bowen Therapy, she was scheduled to have surgery. In a skiing accident, she had sustained a neck injury that caused limited mobilization and constant pain. She was here for a visit and was encouraged by her mother to make an appointment with Donna. With some skepticism, the dutiful daughter followed through; and upon returning home, happily cancelled her scheduled surgery. She had a follow-up treatment two weeks later, and was able to return to her normal activities.

Greg was a week away from playing in a golf tournament with friends in Hawaii when he woke up one morning with so much pain in his right shoulder he couldn’t raise his arm. Panicked at the thought of having to cancel his flight and not being able to play in the tournament, he called Donna for an emergency Bowen treatment and didn’t think twice about having to drive 4 hours - 2 hours to Sacramento and 2 hours back. A few days later, he was much improved but didn’t want to take a chance; so he called to see if he could get another Bowen Therapy session. So he spent another 4 hours on the road to Sacramento and back. His story had a happy ending - He played in the tournament in Hawaii and had a great time!
Ted, an active 50+ year old, had a torn rotator cuff and had been advised to have surgery. He’d already had surgery a few years earlier on the left arm and knew what he would have to go through and the recovery time it would take. He had heard about Donna and decided to try Bowen Therapy, knowing that he could always have surgery if this didn’t work for him. Ted had a treatment a week for six weeks and with each session saw improvement. He progressed to two-week intervals for a month; then every third week and continued maintenance once every 4-6 weeks - just because it made him feel better.
