After being on prescription drugs for different conditions I was looking for something different to try to see if I could improve my health. I tried Bowen therapy with Silvia and I can honestly say I was amazed at the whole experience, not only did it improve my overall health and help me to function day to day but the can do attitude of Silvia was an inspiration to me and gave me the motivation to live life to the full despite of my limitations. I would recommend Silvia to anyone, she has changed my life and for that I will always be grateful.

I was suffering badly with Sciatica and physiotherapy hadn’t helped me. I have known Claudia as a friend for many years and she is so passionate about The Bowen Technique that she inspired me to give it a go. Even after just one session I felt great improvement so I continued. In 3 more sessions the pain went completely! I also had plantar fasciitis in my right foot and I received treatment for this and within one session, the pain had gone. Overall, I was able to bend down finally without any shooting pain, and eventually after a few months, I could even get back to doing Yoga! Bowen is gentle and relaxing, and I highly recommend it to anyone who prefers a more holistic approach in treatment. Thank you Silvia for your encouraging support!

I visited Silvia after I had my second child because of extreme back pain and post natal depression. After the first session I noticed an immediate difference to my back and my mood. By the third session I could take care of my newborn properly and my desire to leave the house came back. ​Bowen helped not just physically but mentally. ​Silvia is passionate about Bowen and the benefits of the therapy. She is compassionate and professional. I highly recommend her and the Bowen Technique! During this past year, I had a few subsequent "maintenance" sessions for various reasons and it never fails to amaze me how good I feel after each session!

I have suffered with Fibromyalgia for more than 10 years now, and prefer not to take any conventional prescribed medication for it. I sometimes use over the counter pain relief for it instead. I had tried Chinese medicine in the past and it helped me, but I wanted to try something different. I heard about Bowen Technique and so gave it a go. Silvia made me feel at ease from the beginning and her explanations were clear. During and after each session, I felt my muscles became much more relaxed, and the pain, more bearable, and I was able to function a lot better. Bowen definitely helped improving my daily life! I feel less tired and move with less or no pain. Silvia is gentle and compassionate. I recommend her and Bowen Technique to anyone suffering with chronic pain.

In 2014 I had a double mastectomy, and the scars were very bad. Claudia has successfully treated me in the past for different issues, so I asked her if Bowen can support me in this difficult period. After just a couple of sessions of Bowen, the scars had started to fade, and looked less inflamed and I was able to touch them. Claudia showed me how to do a procedure at home each day to help the scars and to help my lymphatic system drain toxins out of my body more efficiently. I was amazed with the results and finally felt I could bare my chest again. I recommend Bowen Technique to anyone for any pain they might have. It heals and relaxes in the process. I was impressed. Claudia is compassionate and always uplifting in her approach. It is my pleasure to fully endorse her for her Bowen and personal skills.

I started doing Bowen with Claudia 2 years after I gave birth naturally to my daughter. After birth I had constant, sharp pain in my pelvis and lower back. My GP recommended daily physio exercises but being a first time mum and a team leader for a busy high street cafe left me no time to do that daily. I have mild scoliosis and kyphosis since teen-age years and after pregnancy the back pain has been sometimes so intense I could not function properly.

Even though I felt extremely relaxed during the first session, the day after I felt tired and the pain somewhat increased. I didn't know what to make of it! After a few days, I woke up with a spring in my step!

I decided to have more sessions. And I am so glad I did!

During the next sessions I noticed not only an incredible change in my physical well being but my emotional state has improved and uplifted, as if I felt lighter and calmer. After 5 sessions, I felt totally pain free and I haven't felt so good in years! The pelvic pain was as if it was never there and my back felt well... happy too!

I love Bowen and I'm so grateful to Claudia for her help! Even though I had no more pain, I wanted more sessions just for the feel good factor and the deep relaxation it brings about! I am looking forward to the next one!

I have been Silvia's client for a few months now and I absolutely love the treatment. I had a lot of cramps in my right arm from an old whiplash injury after a car hit me from the side and that pain and cramps went quickly just after three sessions. In parallel, I have been in a difficult time stress-wise over the last three months and she really helped to calm me down using Bowen. Silvia is so positive and caring and she tailors the treatment to whatever is going on, mentally or physically, whatever I need at the time. My life situation improved and I am stress-free but I still go for the occasional top-up.
