Why Camelia Pop
- You can benefit from the extensive experience of a dedicated specialist Bowen Practitioner.
- By practicing exclusively the Bowen technique for 9 years, Camelia Pop guarantees a professional, skillful, analytical approach.
- My high success rate is due also to thorough consultations, in-depth research of existing case studies and also continuous evaluation of how the patients respond to the treatment.
- Patients can have the advantage of being treated by one of the few Bowen Practitioners in North West holding the Specialised Bowen Procedures 2 Certificate (that means being trained in the most advanced Bowen procedures for complex cases).
- You can receive the full range of documented and authentic Bowen procedures taught by Bowtech – the only Bowen training organisation teaching the Original Bowen Technique.
- Practitioner Camelia Pop also holds a B.A. Degree in Biology. She selectively uses her understanding of how organs and systems work to carefully target the underlining cause of your symptoms and apply the most appropriate Bowen techniques. In this way, there are more chances for you to get better.
- You are in safe hands to experience the best benefits of Bowen! Camelia is registered with The Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia and The Bowen Therapy Professional Association.
Please see down the page what my patients say about their results.
A Bowen session consists of a series of gentle moves on the skin or through light clothing, with the client usually lying on a bed or massage table, although it is possible to be treated seated. Bowen Therapy is not a form of massage. The body is brought into a state of deep relaxation using very gentle moves that don't involve any sudden or jerky movements, prolonged pressure or friction.
A session usually lasts 1 hour (although it may happen to be 75 min) and frequently results in a deep sense of relaxation. Bowen Technique's ability to re-align and balance the body means it is effective for most conditions.
I abide by the strict The Bowen Therapy Professional Association code of ethics and also the requirements for qualifications and continued professional development. I regularly attend CPD training to continually update knowledge and skills.
Through images of the human body, my patients are able to understand the inner dynamics of the treatment and how each Bowen session can impact the healing process for weeks after any treatment.

What my patients say about their Bowen treatments:
"This was my first Bowen experience and I really enjoyed it. I hurt my foot while pregnant with my 3rd child so I found a lot of walking hurt. After one session the pain has not returned.
I found it a deeply relaxing experience and I was a lot happier afterwards. Thank you Camelia."
"I used to have severe sciatica issues that I couldn't put my socks on. Therefore I needed to take medical leave several times. Since I've been having Bowen sessions my condition has been improved and I don’t need any more medical leave.
I enjoy all Bowen sessions, it makes me relax so much that almost every time I fall asleep.
If I had to use one word to describe Camelia's service it would be: "Exceptional"."
"Before my child had his Bowen treatment, he was sometimes using his inhaler 2-3 times per day and also in the night. Now, he usually just uses it before sport.
Camelia is an excellent Bowen practitioner. She has a lovely, gentle manner which helps the patient to relax. Her enthusiasm about Bowen is easy to see and she gets very good results, in my experience."
"After the first session I felt that the pain, in my lower back and hips (which strikes every winter), was gone, don’t have it anymore. I can’t tell you how relaxing and invigorating that session was.
After that, I have occasionally visited her to treat other minor health conditions. Love going to see her and feel great afterwards."
"The treatment is non-evasive but has totally changed my quality of life. I am no longer in constant pain and for the first time in over 5 years have been given quality of life back. Some of the results have happened during the treatment and some have happened over days. I am no longer taking pain killers on a daily bases, before I started the treatment I needed them to get out of bed. I have a young and active family and this has given them their mum back!! I highly recommend Camelia and this treatment to anyone at any age."
"I have suffered for many years with Fibromyalgia and general illness associated with this condition. After being recommended by a work college who had great success with his treatment I visited Bowen practitioner Camelia Pop. I had visited several times and after managing years of pain, I was amazed at the improvement in my all round well being. My pain reduced to a level where I no longer have trouble with walking and standing. A huge Thank You to Camelia."
