What is Bowen?
Bowen therapy is a soft tissue remedial therapy that involves the practitioner using fingers or thumbs to move over muscle, ligament, tendon and fascia on various parts of the body. This therapy can be effective to help relieve everyday stresses and to revitalise the body, and each Bowen treatment session is tailored to the particular needs of the client.
By focusing on the lower and mid back, legs, the upper back and shoulders, before finishing with neck moves, a sense of wellbeing can be achieved, helping relaxation, aiding sleep and helping to remove everyday stress and anxiety to allow you to function at your optimum.
It is important to choose a qualified Bowen practitioner who has undertaken all the necessary training to understand the theory and practice of Bowen therapy. A treatment usually lasts from half an hour to an hour.
