Bowen Therapy is based on Tom Bowen's recognition that the underlying cause of many health problems could be found in soft tissue or fascia.  Fascia is a specific type of connective tissue that surrounds every tissue in the body including nerves, bones, arteries, veins and muscles. Therefore fascial dysfunction can affect every structure, nerve, muscle and organ in the body.

 

Bowen Therapy can initiate a conversation between all aspects of the body and can reset this dysfunction by gently releasing negative holding patterns of pain and discomfort.  You might think of it like strumming a guitar - the strumming is the "move" across the fascia and this resonates throughout the body along the chord.

 

Bowen Therapy is safe and gentle enough to be used by everyone including newborn babies, to the frail and elderly. It can help a variety of conditions such as:

 

  • Back Pain

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
FROM A BOWEN THERAPY SESSION

Come for your appointment in comfortable clothes, for example jogging pants and a t-shirt.

At the beginning of each session we will discuss your concerns.  Your treatment will take place in a tranquil room on a massage table while you remain fully clothed.

 

A series of gentle moves will be performed with pauses between each set of moves to allow your body time to adjust.

 

​There is no right or wrong feelings after a treatment - each person is an individual.  Some feel sleepy, others are energized.

You should drink plenty of water.  I will provide you with some guidelines to follow to optimize your treatment.

In addition to Bowen Therapy I also offer treatments in Reiki and Pellowah. If you are interested in either treatment please let me know.
