Reset, Release And Rebalance Your Body
The Bowen Technique is a gentle therapy that is applied to areas of the body in a specific order, using thumbs and fingers.
The rolling-type movements of the thumbs and fingers are designed to stimulate nerve pathways which allow a ‘conversation’ to take place between different nervous systems of the body and the tissues.
Bowen is very gentle and suitable for all ages.
Bowen Technique is a hands on holistic therapy suitable for all ages from babies to the elderly and infirm.
It aims to support and boost the natural healing capabilities of the body. It can offer significant relief for many conditions.
After taking a comprehensive case history and discussing the client’s condition, treatment consists of a series of gentle, precise, rolling moves over specific areas of the body, which stimulate the muscles and soft tissues of the body whilst the client relaxes. Frequent and all important pauses between moves allows the body time to respond and benefit from each series of moves.
It is believed that Bowen Technique provides the space for the body to reset, repair and rebalance itself. When the body’s fight and flight response is reduced it enables the natural healing processes to be more effective. Rather than treating a named condition the body is treated as a whole. Treatment can be focused to help relieve pain and discomfort and increase range of motion for many different conditions.
Treatment can be given on skin or through light clothing, whilst the client lies on a treatment couch. It is possible to treat in a seated position if necessary.
A session usually lasts for up to an hour and changes are normally noticed within the first three treatments. However, long standing conditions will generally require further treatments.
