Case Study: Isaac Mlunjwa
A keen amateur runner, Isaac aims to cover at least 10k every week plus 2k on a treadmill as part of his gym workout. While running outdoors, he landed badly when avoiding a ‘sleeping policeman’ in the road and badly twisted his ankle. Ever since he has suffered an on/off injury which recently became more serious with significant swelling that also affected his foot.
After a Bowen therapy treatment, Helen advised wrapping the ankle with Bexters Soda Crystals to reduce the swelling, which in turn would reduce pain. After some convincing of the benefits of this simple remedy, he applied the wrap filled with crystals overnight and was astonished at the difference it made next day.
The applicator wrap was wet through next morning, indicating the crystals had done their job, and swelling was much reduced from just this one treatment. One week later, after resting his foot, the limp was gone and he was back running as normal.
Isaac says: “I was limping and in agony when I was offered a Bowen therapy treatment, something I had vaguely heard about but never tried for myself. Almost immediately I could feel the pain starting to ease. And after using the wrap with crystals I was even more astonished at how the swelling went down overnight giving me back some ease of movement.”
