Bowen Technique
The Bowen Technique is a soft-tissue remedial therapy, named after its innovator, Tom Bowen. The technique involves the therapist using fingers or thumbs to move over muscle, ligament, tendon and fascia in various parts of the body.

What happens on my first visit?

An initial treatment will address the whole body, although each session will vary according to the presenting problems of the client. Treatment begins with the legs, lower- and mid-back, the upper-back and shoulders before finishing with neck, with the client face up.

A feature of the work is that between sets of moves the therapist will leave the room and allow the client to rest. This is a key element of Bowen and is a defining aspect of the technique as well as being one of the most important. The break allows the body the opportunity to create a decision about what action needs to be taken in response to the moves given.

A set of three treatments is recommended, five to seven days apart. After treatment it’s important to move, drink water, and the return for treatments. It is vital that you don’t stop treatment if you have a strong reaction.
