The Bowen Technique

BOOK YOUR SESSION TODAY

Appointments can be arranged both during the week and at weekends. It is best to call me to discuss your particular requirements.

The Bowen Technique is a holistic, non-invasive, remedial body technique that works on the soft connective tissue of the body known as (fascia). The Bowen Technique can be used to treat musculoskeletal, emotional and organic conditions.

How does it work?

It is a very gentle “hands on”, “hands off” treatment. The gentle rolling moves, using thumbs or fingers are made over very precise points of the body (soft tissue, muscle, tendon, ligaments). By gently disturbing the area, it connects to the nervous system, which transfers the information back up to the brain, the brain then sends a message back down to the various areas of the body that have been disturbed and fires thousands of questions into the area.

The Breaks

The Breaks

In between each set of moves, there are breaks, where the therapist leaves the room. These breaks are very important and what differentiate Bowen from any other body work. They are as important as the moves, as it allows the body time to access the area and make gentle changes trying to rebalance the body. When the therapist returns to the room they make more moves in a different area, thus allowing the body to ask the brain more questions etc, etc.

Bowen May Offer Relief From:

Bowen can treat most things and as a Bowen therapist we don’t treat specific conditions. We allow the body to decide what it needs first. The body and brain are what’s powerful, the therapist simply facilitates between them. Bowen tries to get to the cause of whatever symptom you are presenting and sometimes the body decides to work somewhere else first, on something neither you nor the therapist can see.

How long does it take

How long does a treatment take?

At the first session a case history will be taken so allow 1½ hours, subsequent treatments can vary from 45 minutes to an hour.

Initially I suggest booking between 1-6 consecutive treatments, at weekly intervals, as Bowen is a progressive treatment and continues to work throughout the week after having the treatment.

Aftercare

Aftercare

In between treatments we suggest you increase your water intake and movement. Water, Walking and Weekly are the three ‘W’s’ we prescribe to help the body continue its healing process.

We suggest no other ‘body work’ is undertaken, so the body can focus on just one set of instructions at a time. Normal medication should continue. Gentle exercise can resume, but no heavy work as the body is vulnerable for up to 3 to 4 days.

Cost

Cost

Initial treatment is £48 and subsequent treatments are £42. If a block of 3 are booked and paid for in advance it is £120 and is non-refundable.
