What is the Bowen Technique?

“One of the most gentle yet powerful and effective hands-on therapies available”

Massage closeupThe Bowen Technique is one of the fastest growing natural therapies in the UK. It is a non invasive, drug free, very gentle yet powerful hands-on healing therapy, which encourages the body to re-align, and heal.

Gentle movements are made on precise points of the body. These moves aim to disturb the muscles, connective tissue and subtle energies, sending impulses to the brain to stimulate the body’s own healing systems and rebalance body energy.

Given the right conditions, our bodies have the ability to adjust, adapt and heal themselves. The Bowen Technique affects the body primarily through two of its main regulatory systems, the energetic system and the nervous system, releasing stress at a very deep level, allowing the body to re-align, address imbalances in functions and chemical composition and to bring it back to a state of balance.

Our bodies are self regulating and will continue to try do this for as long as we have life itself. When there is pain and dysfunction, it is a result of disturbances in the tissues.

Structure governs function, and disturbances of structure in any tissues within the body will lead to disturbances of functioning in that structure, and in turn, of the function of the body as a whole.

If structural ingetrity can be restored in the body it will restore optimum function.

The Bowen Technique has the potential to help with this process.

There are various interpretations of the Bowen Technique, all of which are based the original work of Tom Bowen, but offer slight differences in their presentation.

I initially trained in The Bowen Technique with The European College of Bowen Studies, and as my facination grew in this amazing therapy, I expanded my knowledge with further training at advanced level in The Neurostructural Integration Technique (NST Bowen) and Smart Bowen. I have also completed specialised courses in Hormonal Bowen, Fascia Bowen and Bowen for Mothers and Babies. This enables me to choose the best and most appropriate Techniques for each individual client.

Described by one of my clients:

“Astounding results and not just for the ailment I went with. After just three visits I felt brand new and its so relaxing.

For years my lower back gave me issues, and yet now I feel incredible. I dont know how this possibly works but the results speak for themselves.”
