What is Bowen Therapy?
Bowen Therapy is a gentle non-invasive “hands on” modality that helps the body to reset and repair itself. It consists of a series of gentle moves on the skin (or through light clothing) generally while the client is lying down. There are periods where the client is left to rest while the body responds. It can aid in both physical and emotional problems. Bowen technique provides a powerful stimulus to the circulation in the joint. The muscles attached around the joint will be relaxed and so taking pressure off the joint resulting in greater flexibility or movement.
Some of the wide range of conditions that may respond well to Bowen treatments are:
Back pain, Sciatic,
Knee, Hamstring Problems
Neck pain, Whiplash
Migraines & headaches,
Frozen shoulder or pain, Carpal Tunnel
Tension & Stress symptoms,
R.S.I. , Tennis elbow.
Fatigue ...... Just to name a few!
How quickly will I feel relief from my symptoms?
This depends on your ailment and your own body’s healing process. Bowen Therapy continues to process in the body for up to 5 days after the treatment, so for some people relief is immediate, while for others, the process can take days to register any improvement.
How many sessions will I need?
It is suggested that a minimum of 3 treatments spaced 5 to 10 days apart is required for most conditions. An individual recommendation specific to how your body is responding to treatment will be given each session.
Thomas Ambrose Bowen (1916-1982) began developing his technique in the 1950s in Geelong, Australia. He became interested in ways to alleviate human suffering and began to notice that certain moves on the body had particular effects. Tom Bowen developed his technique without having previous formal training in any modality or discipline
