Bowen Therapy is a dynamic remedial body technique that activates the body's innate healing ability. A treatment offers quick and lasting relief from pain and discomfort and a return to balance and harmony of the body.
There is no prolonged contact with any muscle. Muscle tension is released and lymphatic flow is restored. There is no manipulation of joints and bone structures. Misalignments do correct themselves. There is no need for deep tissue work. The fascia will re-hydrate, adhesions may release and scar tissue can soften. People do feel a total sense of well-being following a treatment.
Bowen can be applied to sport and accident injuries, frozen shoulder and tennis elbow, stress disorders, whiplash, neck and head tension, stroke, back pain, sciatica, respiratory problems, hormonal and menstrual problems, migraine and headaches, pregnancy and childhood problems, hamstring, knee and ankle.

A Bowen Treatment comprises the application of small but precise moves on specific points of the body. The location of treatment is dependent on the needs of the patient, and is extremely relaxing. There is no forceful manipulation, just a cross-fibre maneuvering of a muscle, tendon or ligament. Various amounts of pressure are applied depending on the location and the needs of the patient, with time delays being incorporated to allow the body to respond effectively.
