The Bowen Technique is a hands-on therapy that is applied using very gentle pressure.
As Bowen practitioners we use our thumbs and fingers on precise points of the body to perform a unique set of rolling-type moves, these moves stimulate the muscles and soft tissue of the body.
There is no manipulation or adjustment and no force is used. The experience of a treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing.
It is believed that the Bowen Technique prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself and I have had people report feeling pain relief, better movement and increased energy.
What Does It Treat?
Almost everything can respond well to Bowen treatment and this is why:
The technique is based on the theory that gentle moves over precise points of the body can prompt the body’s ability to relieve pain, restriction, and imbalance.
Without the need for deep, manipulative or forceful treatment.
One of the most common complaints with which people seek Bowen treatment is back pain. Depending upon the severity and how long you’ve had it, we can hope to see a change after only two treatments.
The average number of treatments people have is three. There are always exceptions, and some people will need further treatment.
