A Bowen treatment consists of a series of gentle, specifically placed moves done through light clothing, with the client resting on a comfortable treatment couch (or sitting if preferred). Treatment session usually lasts up to one hour. During treatment there are periods when the client is left resting alone for a couple of minutes allowing the body to rebalance itself and start its healing process. The treatment approach is gentle, mindful and holistic (i.e. whole-body orientated)
Conditions that are treated daily in the Bowen clinic include: – backache, sciatica, knee and hip pain (also after replacement), neck and shoulder restrictions (also frozen shoulder and tennis elbow), migraines and other head pains, chronic fatigue and M.E., stress and anxiety. Also the light-touch Bowen work has proven beneficial for Stroke and Parkinson care.
Many patients come to the clinic as a last resort, when ‘conventional’ medical treatments have been exhausted. The deep-rooted, gentle approach of Bowen treatments has often lead to fantastic results where the body’s healing ability is awakened resulting in better general health and well-being.
Three to five treatments at regular (typically weekly) intervals are usually enough to achieve lasting relief. Treatment mostly results in a deep sense of overall relaxation, allowing the body to recharge and balance itself. Therefore also many clients in good health enjoy regular treatments to maintain optimal body balance.
