ABOUT / Bowen Therapy

Bowen work is a remedial body technique that is gentle and relaxing. It helps the body's own healing resources to achieve balance and harmony, which can result in lasting relief from pain and discomfort. The Bowen technique is performed on the superficial and deep fascia. The fascia, or soft tissue, is the part of the connective tissue that envelops, separates and influences every organ and tissue in the body. It has been called the ‘endless web’ – recent studies have shown it to be the largest and richest sensory organ in the body, having a profound effect on the body’s physiology and function.

The Bowen technique is safe to use on anyone, from newborns to the elderly and for any musculoskeletal or related neurological complaint. It is a holistic treatment that treats the whole person and aims to treat the cause of problems, rather than the symptoms. As well as providing rapid and often long-term pain relief, Bowen can help to improve:

Back pain, sciatica, herniated disc, scoliosis
Jaw pain, ear infections and migraines
RSI, carpal tunnel, arthritis
Pelvic tilt, groin pain, uneven leg length
Fibromyalgia, cerebral palsy , MS
ADHD, depression, hormonal
Pre and Post natal care for Mom and Newborn / colic, birth trauma, labor/delivery
Palliative care
Neck/Shoulder problems
Respiratory and sinus problems
IBS, chrones, colitis

Stroke recovery, heart attack
Vertigo, sport and vehicle accidents

Patients are encouraged to seek treatment even if the condition is long standing.  In all cases and especially  Stroke, Sport injury and Car accidents, the sooner treatment is administered the less chance the condition has of anchoring itself in place.
