I had been suffering from severe pain in the coccyx (tail-bone) for two years. Everything felt completely misaligned and sitting directly on the tail-bone was not possible. I tried a four-month course of physiotherapy to no avail; then Pilates, support cushions and remedial chairs; and then acupuncture. None of these relieved the pain.
By the time I saw Ghislaine I was not convinced that any more treatments would really work but I was also quite desperate. The first treatment was quite subtle and I felt only a mild sleepiness. During the 2nd session, I felt a sensation like a tingling ripple out from the tail-bone - as though the source of all this trouble had finally been reached.
I continued with the treatments until after the 6th session I noticed that I was sitting normally on the train back home!
The real test came a few weeks later when I had to make a long-haul flight, something that in the past had been unbearable. This time I really could sit normally again!
I am now able to move and sit completely normally without any pain. Ghislaine's treatment seems unique as she works in a personal way looking at the individual rather than just applying a technique. In my experience this has been a more gentle and effective way to recovery.

I first went to Ghislaine after a motorbike accident. I had actually called her to say that I couldn't come to her yoga class (she is also a yoga teacher). I didn't know she practised The Bowen Technique but when I told her what had happened, she insisted I come along for a treatment.
After the first session I walked out not feeling very much difference but a few minutes later I sat down to take a phone call and when I stood up shortly afterwards, I couldn't believe it. I felt like I had been a very rusty tinman that had been sprayed with WD40 - the difference was unbelievable. My movements were no longer laboured and slow, I felt well oiled and, like the tinman, wanted to do a little jig!
The experience converted me and four years on from that treatment I still go for regular appointments which I always look forward to as a little pick-me-up. As I have a fairly hectic lifestyle it helps me keep on top of it.
I would have no hesitation in recommending The Bowen Technique as it has worked for me on so many different levels. Thanks Ghislaine!

I met Ghislaine a long time ago after years of fairly serious back pain. She is the only person I have ever consulted who has been able to provide me with sustained pain relief.
She treats her patients holistically with both physical treatments and Bach flower remedies. She is both gentle and encouraging and has a genuine interest and ability to provide her patients with real results.
She has also treated me for Labrynthitis and other more commonplace ailments with great success.
I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing her expert help.

Having been very incapacitated for a long period of time with disc degeneration and severe nerve pain I was attending many doctors, an orthopaedic Surgeon, and a consultant in pain medicine all of whom helped me only on a temporary basis.
I was very fortunate to be introduced to Ghislaine Vaughan whom after a course of treatments has turned my life around!
I no longer require the many conventional drugs I took on a daily basis in order to survive my routine.
The treatment is gentle and relaxing and needless to say I am absolutely delighted with the results that have been achieved. I would recommend Ghislaine and The Bowen Technique to anyone who will listen to me sing their praises!
