What is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen is a natural, gentle, fast, effective treatment, which produces an integrated body response, improving circulation, lymphatic and venous drainage, helping assimilate nutrients and eliminate toxins.
Bowen empowers the body to heal itself. The work is natural, non-invasive and consists of a series of gentle, precise moves on specific areas.
We are working over the connective tissue of the body working at the origins and insertion of muscles and over tendons and ligaments
Your practitioner will do a series of moves and then wait for a minimum 2 minutes while your body turns on the healing mechanisms. This is similar to loading a new program on a computer; it requires time to make the necessary adjustments. Your body also needs this time to accept the information being received.
It can take 48 hours for the treatment to take effect and 4 days for the matrix of the body to start the healing process.
A follow-up treatment is often recommended within 5 to 7 days to ensure that the body holds and accepts the changes.
If there has been a long-standing injury you may require regular ongoing treatments. Your practitioner will discuss with you what is most appropriate for your needs.
