What Is Bowen?
The Bowen Technique is a simple, yet highly specific, hands-on procedure which has been widely practised in Australia since its development in the 1950`s by Mr. Tom Bowen. Non-invasive and cost-effective, the Bowen Technique is currently being used in U.K hospitals and private clinics.
What Does Bowen Do?
The Bowen Technique´s relatively few, gentle moves over muscle and connective tissue address the whole body, stimulating it to reset and heal itself. The beneficial effects of Bowen Therapy have been attributed to its ability to return the body to a more balanced state of equilibrium.
What Does Bowen Treat?
Bowen Therapy treatment has a demonstrable effect on many chronic medical problems, including asthma, hay fever, and various types of pains and headaches. It is also extremely effective in the treatment of musculo-skeletal problems such as back pain, neck pain and sports injuries.
What Is A Bowen Session?
A Bowen Therapy session lasts from 30 minutes to an hour, leaving the patient feeling balanced, focused and fully relaxed. Psychological effects include mood elevation and improved sleep quality. Bowen moves are gentle and they can be performed over clothing if required.
