WHAT IS BOWEN THERAPY?
Bowen is a DEEP ACTING myofascial release therapy which uses gentle rolling moves and can:
 – create STRUCTURAL skeletal change 
 – improve lymph flow for a healthy womb
 – calm the central nervous system to soothe anxiety
 – release muscle knots and back pain
 – promote hormonal regulation
 – reduce fibromyalgic pain
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT A TREATMENT SESSION?
I take a full medical history before performing assessments to find the primary imbalance that your body directs me to. Bowen treatments are offered on a mattress or couch in much the same way as for a massage, but clients remain fully clothed throughout.
Bowen moves can be made through clothing, and are usually felt as gentle. Particularly tight areas may require more pressure, and we stay in responsive communication for your comfort throughout your session.
The aim of Bowen Therapy is to calm down the central nervous system and target any areas of neurological or muscular tension. Once these are released clients often report feeling taller, more grounded, more steady on their feet.
Pain often disappears and movement returns to an area of injury after just 1 session.  Some clients report sensations of having had a full body scrub or ‘pleasant skin tingling’. Others want to have a good nap! Regardless of the range of relaxing sensations, everyone raves that Bowen Therapy puts you back in touch with your own body; and YOU set the pace of your healing.

Suitable for babies and children too.
