Lower Back

A car accident injured my low back.
Being a competitive masters runner, I was thrilled to be able to continue to train shortly after the injury. In fact, I found my body was recovering more quickly from my normal workouts. I started racing again; to my amazement, I set 8 personal records in a row in distances ranging from 1 mile to the marathons.
There is no question in my mind that Bowenwork gave my body the boost it needed to perform at this level, and turned a potentially negative situation into a huge positive for me!

I was in three accidents in 3 years. I had whiplash and low back injuries. I saw lots of therapists during those 3 years - chiropractors, massage, physical therapy. I had several "left overs" form those accidents. Bowenwork took me over the top in my healing. The "leftovers" are gone!

I'm in my 70's. I came to Laura for low back trouble that always flared up playing golf. She did her Bowen thing. At first I was not impressed, but over the weeks I slowly could see real change happening. My swing was getting better because I had better range, which meant I wasn't torking my back while playing. Gotta love it. Thanks Laura!

Hip Restrictions

I was taking the trash out one dark night, and didn't see a small pile of pipes, which I slipped on. I came crashing down on my back and right hip. The very first session dropped the pain to almost nothing! two more and I was back to my normal self. Thank you! 

J. Kirklesen

I had bursitis in my left hip. I had to use a cane. After the very first treatment I was walking with less pain. By the second one I didn't need the cane anymore except when I would over-do it, which was sorta easy to do, because I was feeling better. I saw Laura a total of 6 times. I have not picked my cane up in over 3 months so far.



I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and tried lots of things. Everything in my life had to be managed around my fibro pain. My therapist suggested I might benefit from some sessions, and referred me to Laura Magpali. For me the relaxation is so deep. I rest in a way I never do at home. What I can tell you is my fibro symptoms are so much less intense, and so much less frequent that I often forget I have it.  Oh, and I come in monthly now.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

My life was dominated by bouts of pain that kept my mood low, my energy low, my life... well, it was a mess. I've lost two jobs because the pain I was suffering. My home life was a mess (literally) because I had not energy or inspiration to do anything. My doctor recommended I get some Bowenwork, which really helped a ton.

Arthritis pain

The very first session I became deeply relaxed, and at peace. I could hardly wait to see if it "lasted". Well, a first it didn't. In fact, some of the pain came back with a vengeance. But I hung in there, and within a few weeks, I was sleeping better. My husband noticed I was doing things around the house, and that my mood was better (whew for him!).

Frozen Shoulder and Shoulder Pain

I developed torn rotator cups in both shoulders during my busy practice.  For several years I was going for all the usual treatments 2-3 times a week just to keep pain at bay, with no real solution to the issues. The handwriting was on the wall. I was watching my much loved career literally slipping out of my hands. That is, until Bowenwork got to the core cause, which was a twisted pelvis from a car accident I'd been in as a 6 year old. The results I got from Bowenwork is why I do it now. It made ALL the difference between getting by and getting healed. 

Laura Magpali LMT

I had a frozen shoulder. On and off for several years I received massage, physical therapy, chiropractic care. Bowen brought everything into a balance I'd not yet achieved. 


First time in ten years that I did not have hard pain in my right shoulder throwing for the first time of the season. Bowen is the only thing different than other years. I love to play ball with my sons but had done it sparingly for the last five years.

Thanks for no pain!

Headaches & Migraines

I used to have migraines several times a week, sometimes so intensely that I'd have to miss work. From the very 1st session I began having them less often, and not as severe. Whenever I would go in having head pain, she always took the pain away. 

Justin K.

I lived on vicadin and muscle relaxers for the semi constant migraines I suffered with. It wasn't instant, but over the sessions my anxiety levels, and frequency of migraines went lower and lower to where I realized I haven't taken any meds for about 7 weeks. This is the first time in over 20 years that this has happened for me.

Jessica D.

I have broken my nose several times, so I know from experience how long it takes for things to get back to normal. The headache usually lasts about 2 weeks, the swelling for a month or two, and the facial tenderness can last even longer.
The headache was gone when I left your office Friday. By the next day all the pain in my face was gone, except if I touched it, or forgot and rubbed my nose. Astonishing!

Petrina U.


When I first started coming to Laura I had PTSD so badly I would get lost from my therapist's office to her's just a few blocks away. I would be driving down the road and suddenly have absolutely no idea where I was, or where I was going. I could barely sleep at night, could not hold down a job, was pretty depressed, and was taking a lot of medications.
The first session I feel into a deep, deep sleep unlike any regular sleep. While I was out it was like I was being rearranged inside. Gradually over the weeks, the anxiety, sleep issues and depression all began lifting.
I'm now off all the anxiety and depression drugs. It feels so much better being alive.

Postural and Gait Problems

I can hardly wait to go back to see Laura.  My headaches are gone, my posture has straightened up and I carry myself taller, and more stately.  After 50 some years of having poor posture, that is amazing to me.  I love the difference and can't wait to see what is next!


I had pain running down the back of my leg that got worse and worse when I would sit for very long, a real challenge because of my job. Chiropractic and physical therapy didn't seem to keep the problem gone. And it seemed it was gradually getting worse.
The first time I came in I noticed on my way out the door that the pain I was in was down by about half. Yeah!
The next few days I felt a lot of shifts happening. With a few more sessions the pain was completely gone, and hasn't returned now for over a year.

TMJ syndrome

I don't know what happened, but one day I just woke up to find I couldn't open my mouth wide enough to eat. This went on for several months, and I lost a lot of weight.  I had surgery on my jaw, which didn't help a bit. After a few Bowenwork sessions I was able to actually eat a hamburger.


Emotional Healing

In the 2 1/2 years we have worked together, the physical, emotional, and spiritual changes I have gone through are absolutely amazing. You have helped me to evolve into someone that actually looks forward to getting up every morning to continue my journey on to a happy, fulfilling, and fun filled life. I can’t thank you enough.


I feel better in every way possible, and a sense that old memories/emotions are being lifted off and gotten rid of. I have felt emotional off and on today (and last night) for brief periods, in the sense of these old, old things coming to mind uninvited, and the emotions surrounding them. Not re-experiencing, but more like bubbling up and then out — like occasional big deep belches.


My counselor referred me to Laura for anxiety. I was also struggling with my self-image, insomnia, and depression.
I left the very first session totally surprised at how deeply relaxed I became. I’d never felt like that before. Over the next several weeks I found I was sleeping much better, the depression bouts were not as severe, and my anxiety levels were down. My husband even noticed the improvement in my outlook. Life looks a whole lot better these days.

Jen M.

I came to Laura with nothing specific.  She seemed to know just what I needed, though.  I felt completely relaxed on her table.  Obstacles in my life/patterns fell away, and before I knew it, my Mr. Right had arrived!  On top of all that, just being around Laura makes you feel better.  She is truly a blessing to our world!

Tennis Elbow

“I was having serious pain with tennis elbow and was greatly concerned about being able to continue in my career. Since my Bowen treatments with Laura, I no longer experience the pain that was once so overpowering! I am no longer concerned about having to seek new employment and feel that physically I am as good as ever!” Additionally, I have noticed a more overall rested feeling and am sleeping better since my treatments. I cannot thank you enough Laura, for all you have done for me!
