Feldenkrais is "awareness through movement" and can help with a bad back plus many other things.

Bowen therapy is similar though not based on the same details.

Have you ever had Feldenkrais or Bowen therapy?

I have had both mainly for my back and sometimes shoulders/neck.

I simply love Feldenkrais but cannot find a practitioner to do it that is not booked out for months in advance.

It is, unlike physiotherapy, a therapy that I find with just one session, my pain is gone.
This, to me, is miraculous and I have no idea why it actually works, but for me it was brilliant.

Recently I had Bowen therapy due to this lack of practitioners in Feldenkrais, and that was also good but not as good as Feldenkrais .
Bowen is still far better than a physiotherapist, where you have to keep going back for minimal reward. Bowen is also instant relief FOR ME

I had Bowen therapy when I did a really awful twist to my spine somehow. The practitioner here is really brilliant,and for these acute issues(as opposed to the chronic things I deal with daily) I find it extremely beneficial.
No I have never had either of these therapies

No I haven't ever heard of it.
No. I have heard of Bowen but not the other one. I don't know what they are. I see a chiropractor for my back. Have done for years. All our kids see the chiropractor too since they were very little.
I've never used them and had to google what they were. There's no scientific evidence to support Bowen therapy and it's listed on Quackwatch as a questionable treatment, so it might be a waste of money. But I suppose if you use it and feel better, good for you, even if it's a placebo. Sounds like there have at least been trials for Feldenkrais even if they were not conclusive.
