What is Bowen Therapy?
This fascinating method is a dynamic bodywork technique that often results in rapid and lasting relief from pain and discomfort. It is safe to use on anyone, from new borns to the elderly and provides benefits from conditions such as sports injuries to a variety of chronic health problems.
The Bowen method stimulates the detoxification organs in the body such as the kidneys, liver and lymphatic system to rid the body of wastes and toxins, thus improving over-all immunity and preventing infections and disease.
For pregnant mothers, the Bowen method is excellent for relieving back pain due to changes in the body.
How Does It Work?
Simply stated, Bowen therapy is a unique, gentle and effective method that allows the body to heal itself and in my opinion one the most miraculous discoveries of natural medicine. Bowen therapy uses positive and negative moves that stimulate and isolate energy flow in specific regions of the body.
As a result of the Bowen method, tension in the body is usually dramatically reduced or completely alleviated. Inflammation is lessened and cysts and oedema may even disappear.

Do you have to be a certain age to undergo Bowen therapy?
No, the Bowen method is safe for everyone. It can be applied even to infants and the elderly as well as those with chronic health problems such as cancer or diabetes.
Does it make sense to undergo Bowen therapy when I currently do not have any health problems?
Just because you currently do not have any pain or discomfort does not mean that you will not have it in the future. The Bowen method is as effective in assisting in the prevention of disease as it is with dealing with disease. Regular Bowen sessions can strengthen your immune system as the lymphatic system will stay clear, your circulation will be stimulated so that your organs receive the blood supply they need and the nervous system will be activated allowing the functioning of all body systems. All in all, the Bowen method along with good nutrition and regular exercise is an excellent way to prevent disease.
What about if I am pregnant?
Although there are some minimal contraindications for using the Bowen method during pregnancy, as you will see when we discuss the coccyx procedure, most sequences can be used safely and are beneficial during pregnancy. Some sequences can even be applied while you are on your side. Ask your Bowen therapist for details if you are pregnant.
What if I have acute back pain? Can I still undergo Bowen therapy?
Yes, often the Bowen method can provide quick relief for acute back and neck pain and allow a healing environment for faster recovery.
Can I undergo the Bowen method if I have a fever?
Yes, the Bowen method can assist in reducing fever, in relieving aches and pains and in helping the clearing of the lymphatic system to strengthen the immune system.
How many Bowen sessions are required?
Usually the minimum amount of recommended sessions is three but you may require up to ten or more in certain chronic cases. After that it is a good idea to allow your body some time to heal itself.
