Dr. Brennan  moved to the Palm Springs area , after practicing in Oakland for over 25 years.  She was picked top ten chiropractor in the Bay area the last 5 years before relocating. One technique she is excited to bring to the Valley is Bowen Technique.  It was developed in Australia in the 1950’s and came to the United States in the late 1980’s. Dr. Brennan studied with the original Bowen teachers  that came to the  United States .

The  Bowen Technique is a hands -on gentle technique that decreases muscle spasm, improves range of motion and relieves pain.   The  treatment lasts about 30 to 45 minutes and is done through light natural fiber clothing. It uses a system  of specific body points by applying   thumb  and fingers to make a rolling move.  Dr. Brennan  has  had great success with both acute and chronic conditions.  Patients have experienced significant improvements within two to three sessions.

 Bowen is beneficial for neck, mid and lower back pain; shoulder/ knee and ankle pain;  TMJ and jaw problems;  vertigo ; breathing problems and circulation issues.   The best situation is to give the technique a commitment  for three weeks in a row.    The gentle  effect  of the treatment  needs the time in between to  integrate into the nervous  system.  LESS IS MORE.   

Recommendations for successful treatment:

It is important the day of the treatment to drink a lot of water due to its detoxing  effect .  Additionally avoid heavy  lifting and exercise.  Do not use heat or cold or other types of treatment. IThey can be beneficial  but it knocks out the effect of the Bowen treatment.  Immediately after the treatment ,  walk for 15-20 minutes which helps the  musculoskeletal system to settle  in to correction.  If you can get in the habit when standing up, to bear weight equally , this tells the muscles that they are equal and balanced .

Patient Testimonials:

Jennifer L : “And then I discovered that the ‘BOWEN’ method helped my tension headaches and jaw tension”

Jennifer J : “ I have tried dozen  of chiropractors and traditional physicians to treat my back and shoulder

To no avail.  Dr. Brennan , not only fixed it, she fixed it in one visit.”

Jill N:  “Susan Brennan has studied a number of methods, including Bowen…One time I went to her with lower back pain so bad I could hardly get in and out of the car.  She fixed me in two visits.”
