Helping you to get back into balance

What is it?
A hands-on non-manipulative therapy, the Bowen Technique involves the practitioner rolling the muscle and connective tissue on various parts of the body. The thumbs and fingers are used but the touch is gentle, with little pressure applied. A feature of the technique is a series of breaks during which no work is done and the patient is not touched. This is believed to give the body an opportunity to respond to the information gradually and begin the process of healing itself.

What does it treat?
The Bowen Technique is a complementary therapy and not a substitute for medical advice or treatment. However, practitioners prefer that their clients are not undergoing other treatments at the same time as the Bowen Technique.  It is not a massage. Back pain, neck pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, repetitive strain injury and other musculoskeletal disorders have responded well to the Bowen Technique.

Case Study

Claire had suffered with constant pain in her back for 20 years following a car accident. This not only affected her activities but also her general demeanour and mood. After trying numerous therapies which only gave temporary relief she turned to me for Bowen. After just one session Claire reported a great reduction in pain and after three sessions she had resumed her interests of gardening and dancing and she was delighted to find that her quality of life had improved. She simply could not believe how good she felt and her husband could not believe the change in her.
