What is Bowen therapy?
Bowen is a form of body therapy from Australia which helps relieve chronic pain such as back pain, neck pain, frozen shoulder. It can also help with internal conditions such as asthma, digestive ailments, migraines and more. We perform light moves on the soft tissue of the body which stimulate a brain response. This leads the body into a 'rest and repair' mode so that even long-standing problems can unwind and balance be restored.
What is a Bowen session like?
Bowen sessions last about 45 minutes to an hour. After taking a comprehensive case history and discussing your condition in detail, the therapy consists of a series of gentle moves on skin or through light clothing, with the client lying on a treatment couch, covered in a large towel/blanket. It is also possible to be treated seated. In order to facilitate complete relaxation, the therapist leaves the room or sits quietly to one side after each set of moves, to allow the client's body to integrate the work. Bowen can have an immediate effect on some conditions but a series of 2-3 sessions usually has a longer lasting effect.
