Bowen Therapy is a dynamic yet gentle form of physical therapy that provides relief from acute and chronic pain as well as other physical ailments.
Bowen treats the whole body, not just the area of concern by making use of the body’s ability to heal and reset itself. The effect on most pain, inflammation or other conditions is not only quick but long-lasting too.
The therapy is performed over light, loose fitting clothing and a treatment consists of a series of precisely located moves performed over soft tissue, which results in a decrease in muscle tension that encourages relaxation and body realignment.
A key element of a treatment are the pauses between a set of moves. These pauses allow the body to adjust releasing restrictions in the prescribed area.
Bowen Therapy is safe to use on everyone from newborns and pregnant women through to the elderly or disabled.
Treatments are usually conducted on a bed or massage table, but can be adapted to a patient sitting in a chair or wheelchair.
