Yes, Bowen can help! There is a big difference between Repetitive Stress that inflames the carpal tunnel region and the actual Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
There have been many cases where people have been scheduled for carpal tunnel surgery. After just a few sessions the person was free from pain. They found that the surgery was not needed because the pain was coming from a different part of the body. In these cases where there is just inflammation caused by something else, the pain was just showing up with carpal tunnel related symptoms in the wrist area and it was not a case of true Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
In people who have the true Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, a variety of conditions that are occurring in the body to actually cause the closing of the tunnel, thereby pinching off nerves and other tissues causing a very painful condition. In these cases the surgery is probably necessary. Bowen has been very successful in helping people avoid surgery when it is not necessary. Surgery should be the last resort. Even Chinese and Eastern medicine states, “If surgery can be avoided using another approach, logic and common sense says why not use it.”
