WHAT IS BOWEN THERAPY?
Bowen is a holistic technique that works on the soft connective tissue (fascia) of the body. A Bowen treatment consists of sequences of small moves, each at a specific site on the body. Moves are made on skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. A Bowen treatment will also address deeper levels of the body, including fascia and skeleton.
Bowen is designed to stimulate nerve pathways which allow a ‘conversation’ to take place between different nervous systems of the body. Between each set of moves, the therapist leaves the room to allow the communication process to take place. These breaks increase the effectiveness of each subsequent set of moves.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN A TREATMENT SESSION
Therapy session are very gentle and non-invasive. Bowen moves are made over specific points on the body either on the skin or through light clothing. Treatment is suitable for all age groups. A therapy session usually lasts from 40 minutes to 1 hour.
