What is Bowen?
‘Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.’
Bowen Therapy is a gentle, holistic therapy consisting of a series of moves across muscle, tendon and other soft tissue.
Suitable for all ages, Bowen Therapy has been observed to help a wide range of
physical, systemic and emotional conditions.
Subtle, relaxing and non-invasive, relief is regularly felt immediately, with most cases responding within 48 hours.
Primarily a remedial therapy tool, Bowen differs from many other forms of therapy in that it does not attempt to inflict the will of the therapist, or a specific outcome, onto the client.
Instead it offers the body an opportunity to restore its structural integrity.
The Bowen Technique uses a gentle rolling action over soft tissue to stimulate a signal to the brain. Using the fingers or thumbs on specific areas, the therapist applies gentle pressure to bring about a movement of the tissue.
There are breaks within the treatment session where the therapist leaves the room and the client is left alone to rest. This rest time allows the body to rebalance itself
There is no hard tissue manipulation or high velocity movement involved, no massaging or use of oils and no deep or prolonged pressure applied.
The majority of the moves can be performed through light clothing such as tee shirts and leggings.
An initial course of three sessions is advisable, followed by regular maintenance treatments.
Chronic conditions may take longer than this to address and treatment plans are implemented following a full client consultation.
