The Bowen Technique

The Bowen Technique is a soft tissue therapy that consists of specifically placed, gentle rolling moves across muscle, fascia, tendon, nerves and ligaments.

Often you will feel an immediate sense of warmth and relaxation at the site of the moves. Ideally treatment is carried out on the skin, but can be done over light clothing if preferred.

There are also very important 'two minute waits' between certain sets of moves, these enable your mind to reconnect with your original body 'blueprint'. Subsequent release of old holding patterns, tensions and trapped toxins restore and revive the circulation and energy flow necessary for healing to take place.

Bowen Technique is particularly appreciated by athletes as the body resets to its own known stride and range of movement rather than that forcibly imposed by the massage therapist or physiotherapist.

Because Bowen works on an energetic and subconscious level as well as the physical and chemical, it balances all the body systems and can therefore help a wide range of problems.

A session lasts between 1/2hr and 1hr and usually results in a deep sense of overall relaxation, which allows your body to recharge and rebalance itself.

After a few days you should notice an improvement as your body responds to the natural healing forces released by the treatment.

Usually only a few treatments are needed to help even the most long-standing complaints.
