The Bowen Technique is a soft tissue remedial therapy which consists of a series of gentle rolling moves over muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia, with frequent pauses between moves giving the body time to benefit.
A Bowen treatment may include the body as a whole, or a specific problem can be targeted.
Bowen is very gentle, making it a suitable therapy for people of all ages, from the newly-born to the elderly.
There is no attempt within a Bowen treatment to force the body to change. Rather, through releasing stress at a very deep level, via its deep, calming effect on the Autonomic Nervous System, Bowen encourages and enables the body to heal itself.
A sense of well-being can be achieved, helping relax the person and remove every day stress and anxiety, and helping the recipient function at their optimum.
In September 2016 I trained in Fascia Bowen, based on the work of Howard Plummer.
The moves of Fascia Bowen can be incorporated into a normal Bowen treatment, or used on their own, depending on the needs of clients.
They are even lighter - a feather-weight touch, suitable for children, the elderly, and those with chronic, long-term conditions, for example Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, autoimmune conditions.
Might Bowen Help YOU?
Bowen does not aim to treat specific conditions in any way, but seeks to work on the person as a whole. This video provides a good, short introduction of what to expect in a Bowen treatment
