Went into his therapy more curious because I couldn't find anything that would help with my leg pain. After just one session my legs didn't feel weak or pain anymore. And yes don't get me wrong that was great but after I felt relaxed and calm, that was the first time in a long time I felt relaxed. Suffering from PTSD and anxiety can make relaxing very difficult so thank you Carl! Will always recommend!
Carl Literally Saved My Neck ...
I went to Carl of Myo Therapies for an hour Bowen Therapy session because I've had shoulder and neck pain for a while but the pain has greatly increased over the last month or 2 ... to the point where I couldn't even touch my neck lightly without cringing in pain! I had never had Bowen work done before and did not know what to expect. And, because of the amount of pain I had been in, I was not expecting my pain to magically disappear after an hour session.
After my session with Carl, I fell asleep on the couch after a long night of working. I woke up in a very unnatural position with my laptop still on my lap and I thought, "Oh great, I'm gonna be in a lot of pain today!" Well, I wasn't! VERY little pain the next day, actually! I could move my head around just fine with no pain and very little stiffness. The second day after my session with Carl, I had no pain or stiffness AT ALL! I am a VERY happy customer! I still return to Carl for Bowen Therapy every few months just as a preventative measure and I have not had anymore trouble with neck and shoulder pain.
