WHAT IS THE BOWEN TECHNIQUE
In a nutshell – The Bowen Technique is a very gentle, subtle and relaxing hands-on complementary therapy which aims to boost the body’s natural capability to heal and re-balance. As an holistic therapy, it seeks to treat the whole body not just the area that may be the core problem.
The Technique consists of a series of gentle moves across muscle, tendon and other soft tissue. Short breaks are incorporated into the treatment - typically between 2 and 5 minutes. These breaks give the body time to process the moves.
The Bowen Technique is so gentle that it is suitable for people of all ages, from new born babies to the frail and the elderly.
It is recommended that Bowen Therapy is not mixed with other hands on therapy such as physiotherapy, massage, chiropratic, reflexology. This is to prevent the body having to process multiple forms of stimuli.
