What is Bowen Technique?

Bowen Therapy is a gentle and effective at resolving an array of muscular/skeletal problems. It encourages the body to reset and heal itself. It is appropiate from the young to the very old, the active to the infirm. It consists of a series of gentle precise moves on skin(or through light clothing),applied to muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, fascia and joints.

How long will it take?

A Bowen Therapy session usually lasts from 45 minutes to 1 hour and frequently results in a deep sense of overall relaxation, allowing the body to recharge and balance itself.

How does it work?

There are many theories as to how Bowen Therapy works, but none completely explain it’s holistic effect and often outstanding results. In particular I have found Bowen Therapy appears to be very effective at treating back aches and pains.

Bowen Therapy does not impose a particular approach on the client. Instead it encourages a gentle response which empowers the body’s own resources to heal itself. Bowen therapy moves are a study in delicacy, being light, gentle and very precise.

Will it take a lot of treatments?

The Bowen Therapy Technique is not necessarily a 'long-term' treatment program. Most clients find that a small number of treatments, for example 3, are adequate even for long-standing complaints.

Ask anyone who has had a Bowen Therapy session and they will tell you how amazed they were with the results. Most people are initially skeptical about it as Bowen seems so gentle, when compared with some other therapies. Yet it works extremely well and most clients feel significantly better immediately after the first session - depending on the type and seriousness of the injury.

Many athletes find that a regular Bowen Treatment once a week can be very useful in healing sports injuries and helping to prevent further injury.

The Bowen Technique can enhance sports performance and ipmprove balance to the body.
