I have been greatly helped with a long-standing physical problem for which other therapies made very little difference ...but, Bowen has brought about a marked change!
Thank you, Caroline ...see you soon.

My lifestyle and overall wellbeing is hugely improved
Caroline of Body Target, is an outstanding practitioner with a great sense of humour and high level of empathy.
After decades of horticultural work I have had a few aches and pains Caroline has assisted me immensely with Bowen and Myofascial Release. Not only does she explain clearly her practice she also has a wealth of knowledge of general health.
Her active social media posts seem to arrive at poignant times.
Thanks to Caroline my lifestyle and overall wellbeing is hugely improved. Nicky Reynolds, Mt Albert
Caroline and Bowen - a match made in heaven
I don't know how to thank Caroline enough.
Three years of osteo, physio and cortisone injections never gave me the relief of pain and movement I got with only 4 treatments with Caroline.
I was told of Bowen by my brother in law who lives in Sydney, he said give it a go what have you got to loose. I had not been sleeping with my frozen shoulder and bursitis, couldn't lift my arm up or take weight on it, I was a mess. Having tried all the above to no avail I googled Bowen, got onto Body target and read Caroline's testimonials. Caroline was close to home but what sold me was that she did continuing education with Bowen, which to me showed she was always learning.
I made an appointment went for my first half hour treatment and WOW slept that night. What a miracle and they just kept coming, to the point I have full movement of my arm and only now need to see Caroline for maintenance when I feel I need it.
Caroline is enthusiastic, believes in Bowen and can work wonders. She is a true professional, who cares and relates well to clients, keeping them well informed of what she is doing, why and the outcome she is hoping for. Caroline follows up after each session to make sure all is well and I cannot speak highly enough of her and her magic fingers.
Please if you are thinking about trying Body Target give Caroline a call, you won't regret it.
Thanks once again Caroline!

Caroline ooze's with empathy and compassion
Since I stared my journey under the care of Body Target I am very pleased with myself for making the right choice because of where it has bought me to where I am today.
Under Caroline’s care, she listens to your concerns regarding your wellbeing and also questions you about where you are at so she is able to get to the bottom of the problem. From the moment she starts working on you she always explains the what’s and why’s to you. I think that this is a very important factor for your carer to maintain, and boy, does she ooze with empathy and compassion.
HARD OUT, you’re awesome, Caroline.
Louella Te Awa, Kelston
Professional and caring
Caroline from Body Target has been one of the best people that I discovered some time ago and I know my life would be a lot harder without her wonderful treatments.
She is the most professional and caring person you will ever find and I look forward to my treatments with great anticipation.
Carol Longley, Waiatarua
Caroline's hands are magic!
Finding Caroline at Body Target was just what I needed to continue my healing in my shoulders, elbow and wrists. Thankfully she works from home now - local!
Other therapies seemed too invasive and were not having the desired results that were achieved with Caroline. I had a lot of physio and osteo work done on my injuries sustained through competitive surf lifesaving events. I was searching for a treatment that really would give me results and lessen the constant pain and tightness in my muscles, elbow and wrists.
As a former gardener/landscaper I was able to continue working and healing at the same time. The regular body work started with weekly sessions which lead to fortnightly and consequently to almost bi-monthly over the year. Continued Body Target maintenance with Caroline has enabled me to continue working in my own 1 acre garden now; still doing all the heavy work I thought I would have to stop. So now even if I have overdone it a bit ...Bowen Therapy with Caroline at Body Target soon sorts it out for me quick smart.
Thanks again Caroline your knowledge and hands are magic!
Best Regards, Caroline Wulf-Phillips, Parau
I trust Caroline to do what is right for me
As far as maintenance and repair of an athlete’s body is concerned Bowen is the next best thing since the likes of sliced bread was invented. If it wasn’t for Caroline and her dedication to improving the service she provides (always upskilling) to her clients (athletes or not) I would not be able to enjoy life to the max as I do now. Without preaching to the converted our bodies are made up of many parts that all need attention (mind, body and soul). In Bowen I have found a complementary therapy that specifically helps me keep my body functioning as well as it can.
Some years back I suffered a neck injury from walking into a glass door panel. While the Bowen helped ease my pain it did not fix it until we worked in conjunction with a chiropractor who adjusted my neck bones. Caroline ‘tweaked’ the muscles allowing them to relearn and relax back into “normal” positions. The relief was incredible as I could move my neck normally, not get headaches from driving or sitting in a meeting and getting a stiff neck from looking at people to the left of me. My chiropractor was more than willing to treat me alongside the Bowen as he understood adjusting relaxed muscles lead to a faster response and rehabilitation.
I realised before this episode that Caroline had the magic touch when as an umpire I suffered from many a calf strain, muscle tears and plantar fasciitis. What would take six weeks with normal physiotherapy treatments Caroline had me back and running in just over half the time. With her recommendations I have been able to manage umpiring on tournament week with two games per day for five days as a 50+ year old. I found in Caroline someone open to discussing my needs and working out what was a best fit for me. She is always quick to point out the benefits of any type of treatment and suggest anything that might work for you.
Caroline is more than a therapist to me. We have a great friendship and whilst I am on her table relaxing into an hour of self indulgence allowing her to tweak my body back to normality and peak functionality we can talk about all manner of things, have a laugh or simply rest as the soul requires. I love to hear and learn what the ‘moves’ she is doing on me will do and I trust her to do what is right for me. Bowen makes sense!
So, if you have a problem that has never been fixed by conventional means I suggest you give Caroline and Bowen a chance. Caroline will be upfront and tell you if she doesn’t think she can help you and she will allow you to listen to your body to decide how many treatments you need. Me, I love to have a monthly WOF as while I am still being active I prefer to have preventative treatment instead of having to engage her services due to injury. We have regular tune ups for our cars – why not our bodies? You will not be disappointed! However as Caroline still works full time and practices Bowen outside of these hours I don’t want too many of you taking up her time! Leave some for me! Gail Griffiths, Glenfield
I love Bowen!
Hi Caroline - Miracle!
I have had problems with a tooth I had a filling put in a few months ago. - on my right side. I'd never had a filling before so didn't know what to expect - I contacted the dentist three weeks after and said it was still sore - they said it was a big filling so could take six to eight weeks to settle. I gave it that long then went back and they said the filling was too high. So had been aggravating the nerve then filed it down. That was weeks ago and I've still been chewing on the other side. They had taken an x-ray and said there was no infection but instead nerve damage and I may need a root canal! Anyway after seeing you the other night I've had a huge improvement! Almost instant! I've been eating on that side again!
I love Bowen! Just thought I'd let you know. Have a lovely lovely weekend. Sarah Boeinghoff, Titirangi
I now have hope
Having suffered with lower back problems for years, had numerous visits to Osteopaths, Acupuncturists, and then a MRI Scan to be advised by medical specialists to refer back to the same. I now have HOPE that maybe I will be really free of back problems in the near future because of Bowen Therapy.
Patricia Rameson, Henderson
Caroline is amazing!
Body Target was recommended to me by a friend and I'm so pleased that I followed through. Caroline is amazing - she listens and assimilates the problems extremely well. I respond to the therapy in an incredible way and would advise anyone to try it.
Trudi Mitchell, Henderson
Yes, Bowen Therapy can even help your beloved pet!
Thank you from Maddie, Comet, Kiki and Moose (all cats!) Maddie was running around like a loon on Sunday, she seems so much more comfortable on her leg.
Jody Grayson, Papatoetoe
A Bowen breathrough
Body Target is a very professional company presented in a holistic way and they are situated in lovely surroundings. Caroline is a very client-centred therapist, and she takes the time to explain the procedures she carries out.
Caroline, through Body Target, has helped me a great deal and though I have had different help in the past, I feel that with Bowen I have made a breakthrough and I could not be happier about it!
Thank you Caroline for your expertise and caring approach.
Jaelle Devereux, Titirangi
Bowen Therapy is amazing!
I find this treatment works for me. It’s a good, natural alternative that is authentic. I feel that the results are beneficial and it is a positive experience.
Caroline has a lovely manner and I wouldn’t change anything from my experience at Body Target. Bowen Therapy is amazing! It is the only treatment that has given me long term relief from RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury).
Lucie Baker, Te Atatu Peninsula
Bowen successful in reducing awful pain
I have had welcoming, friendly service, and received good advice. Caroline has always been extremely helpful and explained all that she was going to do with my shoulder and neck problems. The treatment has been extremely good and all Bowen movements used have been successful in greatly reducing awful pain that I have had for quite a long time.
I would thoroughly recommend Body Target to anyone experiencing muscle pain as it has helped me tremendously. I am now going to have 'top up' treatments with Caroline to keep my pesky muscle pain under control. It is also great to have such a lovely, bright and cheerful person as Caroline is, in control of my treatments.
Thank you Caroline. Jenny Scarr, Laingholm
Friendly service and treatment that works
I am very happy with Body Target and with the excellent service received.
The treatment is very thorough. The service is friendly and very good and the treatment works. I have recommended Body Target to several people.
Bill Korver, Green Bay
Love the service
I went in with chronic sciatica problem, after three visits to Caroline I am virtually pain free. She follows up with calls and advice. Caroline listens to the problem and works with me. She always explains the moves and why she was doing them and every time I have felt a bit better. Love the service and would trust Caroline with any pain.
Denise Munro, New Lynn
Great treatment and care which has made me feel much better. I don't have migraines as often now. Thank you.
Candice Osborne, Glen Eden
Listened to my concerns
I have found Bowen Therapy helpful in many ways. The therapist is very knowledgeable about my condition and has listened to my concerns and was able to try several techniques which have given me relief.
Melanie Western, Ranui
Too good to be true?
I had never heard of Bowen Therapy until my workmate started working with our organisation a couple of years ago. I had chronic pain due to tennis elbow and was told by occupational health when I went for a treatment that they could give me a cortisone injection on the spot. Although I was a bit sceptical of Bowen, mainly because it is something that I had never had done to me before, I decided to go with a 'natural remedy' before I went for the alternative and see what happens.
I have had physiotherapy in the past for hip and back problems but it was very harsh on my body (I even had the bruises to prove it) and it did take a lot more treatments before I got the same benefits as Bowen did. I have to be honest, Bowen did seem 'too good to be true' and a bit of a miracle treatment, but I am so glad I had it done instead. It only took three treatments to elevate the pain, and to this day the pain has not returned.
I highly recommend this type of treatment to people before resorting to harsh 'conventional' medicine as it definitely works.
Ruth Lee, Mairangi Bay
Give Bowen Therapy a go
After the birth of my daughter in 2010, I was experiencing quite a discomfort in my sacrum/tailbone area. I had seen Chiropractors, Osteopaths and had even gone to Physio, but still a year later the discomfort was still there, and it was becoming worse.
I had previously had Bowen treatments a few years back and I was delighted to see that there was a Bowen Therapist in my area. After a few treatments under the wonderful care of Caroline and working out what triggered my pain, I am pleased to say that the pain has subsided.
I cannot thank Caroline enough! I would recommend that you give Bowen Therapy a go - you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Nikki Thompson, Glen Eden
My first session was an amazing difference thanks very much.
Never had such an instant effect after trying any other therapy (of which there has been much - osteopath, chiropractor, massage, neuro-muscular therapy, reiki, acupuncture.
For me to walk in with a lower back ache and a bung neck setting of headaches and to walk out with neither of those was a godsend.
Claire Masters, Titirangi
I injured myself at netball and physio was not looking at the injury.
You've given me back my strength in my ankles and I don't know how you did it. I have told a lot of people about Bowen Therapy now.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Josie Rihari, Glenfield
Quick recovery from a car accident
I had been recommended to try Bowen Therapy, but had never pursued this until recently.
When I had a car accident recently I suffered whiplash and a sprained rotator cuff. I had two treatments and the pain was gone, where as I had previously had other treatment and it had taken months. I would recommend.
Karen Broad, Glen Eden
Ideal position for birth
After a caesarean section with my first baby I was determined to have as natural delivery as possible with my second. However, I was devastated to learn at 39 weeks, that my baby was breech and we were looking at an elective C-section as the chances of a baby turning that late are so slim. Nevertheless, I was willing to try anything and was referred to Caroline and Bowen Therapy.
The results were dramatic - during the session I felt the baby's head move as the chin tucked under, and then over the next couple of nights, the baby was very active in there. Then when I had an appointment to check things out at the hospital three days later, baby had turned to exactly the ideal position for birth! Ten days later I had a fast and straight forward natural labour and gave birth to our healthy baby girl.
Thank you so much Caroline for helping me when all the other professionals told me I was wasting my time! I have no doubt Bowen Therapy made a real difference. Rachel Houltham, Kaukapakapa
Chronic pain in hip and sacral area
I am a 72 year old male with chronic pain in my right hip and sacral area. This caused pain after sitting for a time and lying in bed. My sleep was affected and I had to adopt unusual sleeping positions to obtain relief. Analgesia was of limited value.
After two to three visits with Caroline my pain has been greatly relieved to the point that I now sleep well in a normal position, have no pain even after prolonged sitting and my need to analgesics is much reduced.
Compared to how I was, I am now virtually pain free, with increased mobility. I had previously used the Bowen Technique for back pain some 10 years ago and I find that it works well for me and would recommend its use for people with unrelieved pain.
Caroline is a very professional practitioner and I will use her skills again should the need arise.
John Johnson, Albany
Completely pain free
The pain in my neck and at the base of my head have been on-going complaints for decades, and from time to time I experienced lower back pain.
After just three visits to Caroline for Bowen Treatment, I have been completely pain free for the past six months, with no other intervention.
I can highly recommend Caroline - not only is she very professional and thorough, she has a lovely warm manner and terrific sense of humour. Jacqueline Johnson, North Shore City
Hobbled in, walked out!
I pinged my calf muscle and was told I wouldn't be able to go back to netball for at least three weeks - not so!
I hobbled in and walked out 40 minutes later. Gentle, non-invasive treatment that really works.
Thank you so much Caroline. Louise Houltham, North Shore
Bad back so much better
I am writing to you to let you know how pleased I am with the treatment you have given me for my bad back.
I have had a bad back for many years and since I have been to you for treatment, my back has been so much better.
I just can't thank you enough for what you have done for me and my back.
Thanks again Caroline.
Jean Bergquist, Henderson
After having had quite serious pain and weakness in my wrist for several years, I sought help from Caroline with her Bowen Treatment.
I had approximately three or four treatments and I have not suffered from the pain or weakness again. I found Caroline to be very professional and helpful in her approach to my problem.
