Bowen Therapy

Bowen is a holistic treatment that treats the whole body. It is not massage. It consists of a series of gentle  moves over tendons, ligaments muscles and nerves delivering signals to the nervous system at specific locations and the body does the rest, responding in its own time, as it is able. The first thing that Bowen does is it brings the body from ‘fright, flight or freeze mode’ to ‘rest, relaxation and repair mode’ so the body can heal itself. Two mins rest (the practitioner leaves the room) is giving following each set of moves to allow the body to respond to the moves. It is safe to use for individuals of all ages and in all degrees of health.

The Bowen technique addresses the entire body and helps to restore balance. It is a very relaxing treatment and sometimes people fall asleep. At  the first visit an assessment is carried out. A session normally takes 30– 45 mins. hand-on. It is normally recommended that people have a course of 3 treatments but it depends on each individual case. It can assist recovery from many conditions, from traumatic injury to chronic illness, depending on each individuals capacity to heal. Many clients report that Bowen is THE most relaxing modality they have ever experienced. Some of the conditions that respond favourably to Bowen are :
