Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy, also known as the The Bowen Technique, is a non-intrusive complementary hands-on therapy. Applying appropriate pressure, the practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise points of the body to perform Bowen’s unique sets of rolling-type moves which stimulate the muscles and soft tissue of the body. There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used. It is believed that Bowen therapy prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself and clients report the experience of pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy. Bowen practitioners work holistically and expect to work alongside allopathic health professionals to support optimum health for their clients.

    The Treatment Session

    Most treatment sessions last one hour. At your first appointment a summary of your medical history will be taken and detailed information of the problem you need help with, including pain scales and how the issue impacts on daily life. This information will be used as benchmarks to measure progress and reviewed at follow up appointments.

    Assessments on range of mobility are undertaken where indicated and imbalances in tension states within the body are monitored throughout the treatment. There are pauses throughout the treatment, usually for a minute or two, sometimes longer if required. These are to give the body time to respond to the treatment and any changes in tension or tone of the muscles are noted on resuming the treatment.

    Treatment can be given direct on skin or through loose, light clothing. Sportswear with elastic waist is ideal. Jewellrey, particularly necklaces and dangly earrings, are best removed before treatment.

    Every effort is made to ensure comfort on the treatment couch and for those who are unable to lie comfortably pillows and bolsters can be used as required.
