This simple technique involves a gentle dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue moves, which balance the body and stimulate energy flows. The work consists of a series of gentle rolling moves over the muscles, and can be done through the clothing. There is no forceful manipulation used. Results can be remarkable, even from the first session; often only a few sessions are needed to correct the presenting problem.
The Bowen Technique is a useful and effective therapy in the following conditions:
- respiratory, digestive and menstrual problems
- migraines, neck, shoulder and back problems, (particularly sciatica)
- sport injuries e.g. hamstrings strains
- stress, fibromyalgia, sinus/hayfever problems, and TMJ (Jaw) problems.
The Bowen Technique can be used safely on anyone from pregnant women, babies to the elderly or immobile. You do not have to be unwell to benefit from a Bowen treatment. It is an ideal way to help your body fully relax and function at an optimum state of health, and hence is very effective for releasing stress.
I was originally trained in Bowtech, and have been practicing the Bowen Technique for 25 years now.
Everyone is better for Bowen
I was suffering a lot of pain and was very restricted in my day to day activities, My energy levels were always low and I felt generally totally miserable. Not being able to exercise and making poor food choices, led to my weight ballooning, which made everything so much worse. Wow! Walk in wonder woman Karen. To be out of pain and feel relaxed again my whole life has changed. I now bike for 2 hours most days and do resistance exercises for 30 minutes three times a week. I am a much better person to live with, so my husband tells me. I can now enjoy all the things that bring me pleasure in life. I truly could not be more grateful to Karen. I have recommended Karen since my first treatment with her and will never stop doing so.
