The Bowen Technique
Bowen technique. A healing, often miraculous, life changing hands-on-therapy which seems to be revolutionizing the healthcare world.” The Daily Mail
A Bowen practitioner once said to me, " Don't learn this technique! Clients respond and get better so quickly, it means that you're constantly looking for new clients!"
So, of course, I learned it...
Bowen is the "gentle giant" of the holistic world. A deceptively light touch, belies a very powerful treatment, Bowen therapists treat the body as a whole rather than just a set of symptoms. They use gentle, rolling moves over precise parts of the body using the thumbs and index fingers in order to trigger the body’s natural healing responses. Working with the nervous system and the connective tissue, the bowen moves encourage the body to re-set, re-align and heal itself.
There is no manipulation of hard tissue and no force is used or needed. This simple and powerful technique can help relieve all kinds of pain. Treatment at regular intervals can help manage stress and maintain wellbeing. It is so gentle that it can be used on anyone, and Its ability to re-align and balance the body, means it is effective for most conditions.
The body continues to respond for several day after a treatment. The most common reaction from a session, is a deep sense of overall relaxation and lessening of muscular tension and pain. Improvement is often experienced within a few days. Results tend to last for a long time. It is a unique treatment in that it works on many levels of the body to promote natural healing.
