Bowen Technique - £35

Simply stated, the Bowen Technique allows the body to reset and heal itself. A Bowen treatment consists of a series of gentle moves on skin (or through light clothing); with the client usually lying on a treatment couch. A treatment session usually lasts an hour.

The Bowen Technique balances and stimulates energy flows, resulting in a deep sense of overall relaxation. The restorative process begins once the body is relaxed, and continues as the body is allowed to recharge and balance itself.

Bowen Technique can also be extremely effective for muscular-skeletal problems such as back pain, sports injuries and many other ailments and discomforts.

There are many theories as to how the Bowen Technique works, but none that completely explain its holistic effect and often outstanding results.

The body is a highly complex unit dependent upon the balance of all its aspects. Whilst the orthodox medical profession still tend to take a symptomatic view of disease, Bowen is truly holistic in its approach. One Bowen move may address the entire system producing maximum results with minimal intervention. Unlike some other hands-on disciplines, the Bowen Technique does not impose a particular approach on the client. Instead, it encourages a gentle response which empowers the body's own resources to heal itself. Bowen moves are, in themselves, a study in delicacy, being light, gentle and very precise. Frequent pauses between moves give the body time to respond and benefit.

• Bowen Therapy is safe to use on anyone, from newborn babies to the elderly.
• Bowen can address many conditions from sports injuries to chronic and/or organic complaints.
• There is no vigorous manipulation used with Bowen.
• The gentle moves stimulate energy flows, empowering the body's own natural resources to heal itself.
• Bowen improves joint mobility and clears the body of debris, balancing cellular physiology and tissue integrity.
• Utilising Bowen Therapy produces an integrated body response, thereby improving circulation, lymphatic and venous drainage, and helping assimilate nutrients and eliminate toxins.
• Bowen facilitates improvement of a broad range of conditions, and balances the body's energy to create homeostasis at the cellular level.
• This technique allows the body to re-pattern energy fields to address physical, mental and emotional issues.
• Substantial relief is frequently achieved after only one session.
• The precise location of each Bowen move correlates markedly with the latest research on the meridian energy system, acupoints and trigger point therapy.
