Bowen Technique for Pregnancy

I work as a Bowen Therapist, Homeopath and Doula in Peterborough, supporting women with hormonal or fertility challenges right through pregnancy and birth and into their postnatal recovery period.

I help families minimise the need for medical intervention.

WHO DO YOU WORK WITH?
As a Birth Doula in Peterborough I specialise working with women who are experiencing imbalances or PAIN during pregnancy and preparing for birth.
Women who are POST-DATES or ‘OVER-DUE’ can benefit from treatments to encourage healthy hormonal release and reduce the neurological tension of anxiety and anticipation which gets in the way of normality.
AMT Bowen is a gentle and powerful neurological release that corrects tissue tension to align the pelvic bones and aid baby to ENGAGE and have a SMOOTH BIRTH.
Bowen Therapy can mostly be done over clothing (it’s useful to treat the neck area directly on skin) and can be performed in all manner of positions making it useful for women who are Advanced Pregnant!
Packages for 1-1 Childbirth Preparation, Bowen Therapy and Birth Support are available.

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?
When you arrive at the clinic in Peterborough for your Bowen Therapy appointment 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 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.
