Welcome to Feel Bowen
Bowen is a holistic, non invasive hands on therapy. It involves gentle rolling type ‘moves’ over specific points on muscles, tendons, nerves and fascia. The ‘moves’ are performed using thumbs and fingers applying gentle pressure. The moves are sequenced together into ‘procedures’ which in turn makes the treatment work on a deep, dynamic and often profound level.
Bowen can offer relief for many types of injuries and other health problems both acute and chronic, using the body’s innate healing mechanisms.
Bowen is a great therapy for most people including sports people, athletes, gymnasts, dancers, for the very old to the newborn baby, people who work in an office, for labourers, before/during and after pregnancy, pre and post surgery, for the terminally ill, for rest and relaxation, or for people with degenerative disease’s.
A bowen session will last about an hour, but the actual treatment will be anything from 20 – 45 minutes. The client, if possible, will lie on a very comfortable therapy bed. If the client is unable to lie down then the bowen tratment can also be done with them sitting or standing. The treatment can be done through thin clothing or directly on the skin, which ever is preferable.
