- Digestive problems
- Menstrual problems
- Sports injuries
- Stress and anxiety
- Low energy / poor sleep
- Foot problems
- Jaw problems
- Head / neck pain
What happens in a one-to-one treatment?
You will be asked to complete a 'Client Questionnaire' (a detailed questionnaire). You can download a copy from the links on the right of this page.
In a Bowen treatment, the therapist acts as a facilitator, in dialogue with the body, providing the body with information through small and gentle movements over muscle and tendon fibres, and the underlying fascia. During the treatment, the therapist will leave short pauses between moves, in order to allow the body to rest and respond.
Bowen Talks/Workshops (Group-Setting)
I am also happy to give Bowen workshops/talks for groups - to explain a little about Bowen work, but also for the audience to experience some Bowen moves.
On the day of treatment (and subsequently), be sure to drink plenty of water.
It is also important for you to observe a few simple Do's and Don'ts after Treatment. So please download and read the 'Treatment After Care' information from the links on the right of this page.
Given the subtleness and gentle nature of the treatment, Bowen treatments should not be received in conjunction with other physical therapies such as Chiropractic, Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, Massage or Reflexology as these can interfere with the subtle work that is going on and overload the patient.
It is therefore suggested that patients allow a gap of at least 2 weeks from their last Bowen treatment after which time they are free again to explore other therapies. You may, however use homeopathic and/or herbal medicines at the same time as Bowen.
With Bowen, "Less is more"
