My left side
One of Louise Tremblay’s students, Jean
Desrosiers, came to Modules 3-4 with many case studies showing
the amazing effects of the Bowen technique. In the 10 weeks
between Modules 1-2 and 3-4, Jean had done 172 Bowen sessions.
In the following testimony, only BRM 1, 2 and 3 were used.
“On April 3rd, 1997, I was victim of a stroke. The recovery
was very long because half of my body was paralysed for 2 months.
I got back 57% use of my left leg but I was unable to walk a
complete step because of the rigidity of my ankle. This made
me limp pronouncedly. I only recovered 47% use of my left arm,
including a rigid and permanent twitch of my left hand.
“When Jean Desrosiers started his training in Bowen technique,
he immediately offered to try it on me. From the first session
using BRM 1, 2 and 3, the response of my body was extraordinary.
I immediately felt an immense flow of energy circulating throughout
my body, followed by intense heat that literally woke up my
body especially the left side which had been profoundly asleep
for 12 years. The most spectacular effect of this first treatment
was that I felt my left leg returning to its original position
in my hip. This cut down my limping by 30% and it enabled me
to take a full step including the complete stretching of my
“I now have a much better equilibrium and I am able to
balance on my left leg. Each Bowen session makes me regain more
physical ability on my left side even though I thought it was
gone forever. For 12 years, I thought that the right side of
my body was balanced and the left side was very unstable. The
subsequent Bowen sessions awakened and re-balanced my whole
body, which is a great joy for me. As long as M. Desrosiers
is willing to treat me, I will receive it with extreme gratefulness.
I cherish the rebirth of the mobility of my body, which this
illness had made me forget. Thank you!"

The Ironman needs you and Bowen!
What an opportunity it would be for you to follow the example
of Marie-Josée St-Onge of Quebec City, Canada!! She is
doing voluntary services at the Ironman World Triathlon Championship
treating the athletes with the Bowen technique. The race encompasses
three endurance events; a 3.8 km swim, a 180 km bike ride, and
a marathon (42 km). The current course record winning time is
a bit over 8 hrs. It is easy to imagine the athlete’s
Guy Rossi, a 60 year old Frenchman, runs the triathlon all over
the world. In July 2008, he ran the double triathlon of Quebec
City. This is his testimony:
“The back pain that I had
for 6 months became very acute in the Quebec ultra-triathlon
(a 7.6 km swim, a 360 km bike ride, and a double marathon (84
km). I had to stop running after 18 km, and there where 66 km
left to the finish line. I then had the chance to meet Marie-Josée
St-Onge who had the generosity to give a 1 and a half hour Bowen
session. Afterwards I followed her recommendations: rest, drink
a lot of water and walk… back home in France, I was able
to start training again as if the back pain that stopped me
from swimming and running had disappeared. It is simply tremendous.
And I spread the word all around me. Already a physiotherapist
from Marseille will offer Bowtech’s training and athletes
from Alsace will contact the Bowen Practitioners of the region.
All blessings! Thanks again to Marie-Josée for her patience,
kindness and obviously her efficiency. Sportingly,”
There are triathlons all over the world, specially in Australia,
Europe, USA, Mexico. Google “triathlon” for one

Bowen for marathon runner
On August 2, 2008, while running in a 12 hour race in New York,
I had the profound pleasure to meet Marie-Josee St. Onge.
Four hours into the run, she offered to perform a Bowen treatment
which would help me to run better. After six minutes of work,
I felt as strong and relaxed as I had hours before.
She helped me again eight and ten hours along. Each time, I
was refreshed and energized after she used her skills to relieve
my fatigue and give my muscles new life and make me feel like
so incredibly good.
I had my best times for 50 miles, 100 kilometers and 12 hours
thanks to her magic!
