What Is Bowen?
The Bowen Technique is a remedial, hands-on, holistic therapy that provides effective pain relief from musculoskeletal and neurological pain. Its deeply relaxing qualities will also help to alleviate stress and anxiety.
What To Expect:
Hannah, your practitioner, will use her thumbs and fingers to apply very soft pressure and small rolling movements to specific points on your body. These unique sets of moves work by manipulating the soft connective tissue (fascia), muscles, tendons and ligaments. This then send signals through the Autonomous Nervous System to your brain, activating your body’s own healing response helping it to balance, repair and re-set itself.
Your First Treatment:
Your initial Bowen therapy will consist of an in-depth consultation of your medical history and the problems you're experiencing. Hannah will then assess the symmetry, tension and heat of your body to find the source of dysfunction in the fascia. This will allow Hannah the opportunity to assess your situation and carefully structure your personalised treatment plan. She will then apply gentle moves to specific areas to release tension and reduce symptoms such as pain or hormonal imbalance.
During your Bowen treatment, there will be essential short rests between each set of moves to ensure a complete synthesis of your body’s response.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Depending on each individual and the severity of the condition will dictate the number of treatments needed. Normally, 3 – 6 treatments will resolve many conditions. Some people experience a reduction in pain, energy recovery, and an improvement in function extremely quickly.
What Do I Need To Know:
The positive, healing effects of your Bowen Therapy continues for several days after your treatment, therefore it’s advised not to receive any other alternative physical therapies during this time. Combining with other physical therapies could cause interference with the healing process and reduce the effects of your Bowen Technique treatment.
Bowen Technique is performed over light, loose clothing. Being such a gentle and non-invasive treatment, Bowen Technique is safe for everyone, including children, the elderly and during pregnancy.
Treatment: 45 - 60 minutes £40
