Why choose Bowen Therapy?
What health issues can Bowen Therapy help with?
A bit about your Simply Bowen session
In the first Bowen session, we take a comprehensive case history and discuss your condition in detail.
You lie on a treatment couch, covered in a large towel/blanket and the therapist makes a series of specific moves directly on your skin or through light clothing if you prefer. It is also possible for you to be treated lying on one side or sitting. To facilitate complete relaxation, the therapist usually leaves the room or sits quietly to one side after each set of moves, to allow your body to integrate the work.
For most people, 2-3 Bowen sessions can have a lasting effect on their condition. Some chronic, long-standing conditions will require more sessions over a period of time. Some clients find monthly or 6 monthly 'maintenance' sessions keep their body balanced if their job is physically demanding.
So what does Bowen Therapy feel like?
Here is a sample of Feedback From Clients about their experience of Bowen Therapy:
"Before my first treatment, I was relatively sceptical about how such minimal interaction could help my severe repetitive strain injury. However, I was recommended by a colleague to give Bowen a go and after the first treatment, I had such a strong reaction I couldn’t wait for my next session. I had several treatments in total with Nikki and not only did my RSI completely disappear, a long standing issue with lower back pain also almost entirely went away." Erica
"I have regular Bowen sessions with Nikki and find that it keeps the pain from my osteoarthritis at bay to a large degree. My consultant told me my hip joint was now bone on bone but the Bowen has kept me moving. Other aches and pains in shoulders and back from using a walking frame are also quickly resolved." Bob
