The body is constantly working to maintain health and balance, a process known as homeostasis. When balance is disrupted, the body produces signs and symptoms of pain and disease. Bowen therapy brings the body back into balance using a series of precise non-invasive rolling movements.

Bowen moves are done in areas rich in sensory receptors. Thumbs or fingers are placed on the skin and a gentle rolling motion is made across the area delivering signals to the nervous system. The body and mind are now having a conversation, stimulating physiological changes and energy flow, empowering the body to return to balance. Brief pauses are needed throughout the session to give the body time to integrate this sensory information.

Each person will respond differently, healing at their own pace. This process continues for up to seven days after a treatment as the body reorganizes and heals.

By choosing an appropriate combination of moves, the Bowen therapist is able to address the body as a whole and target specific conditions. Treatments usually last 30-60 minutes. Clients can either lie on a treatment table or be seated in a chair if required for comfort. Most Bowen moves can be performed through light, loose clothing if the client prefers.

Following treatment, it is recommended that clients forgo any other manipulative or energetic therapies for five days as adjustments are still being made by the body.

Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.
