Bowen is a non-invasive hands-on technique involving gentle rolling motions along the muscles, tendons, and fascia.
By releasing stress at a very deep level, via its calming effect on the Autonomic Nervous System, Bowen sets the scene for the body to heal itself.
In contrast to many other hands-on therapies, Bowen does not attempt to force the body to change; rather it asks the body to recognize and make the changes necessary to bring it back to homoeostasis (physiological equilibrium).
A Bowen session includes a consultation, physical assessment and the treatment, and each session takes around 60 mins.
I usually see a client three times initially to address the presented problem.
After treatment they will feel deeply relaxed, more upright and balanced in posture, an easing of the tension points, a big reduction in pain, and with energy/Qi (the vital force) flowing more fluidly.
