Bowen Therapy is a soft tissue therapy that is applied to the body in series of moves performed in a specific sequence to provide relief from a variety of physical conditions. The moves are designed to assist in restoring the body back to health and balance. Bowen therapy differs from massage therapy in that the moves are performed across the soft tissue of the body – the fascia, muscles, tendons and ligaments instead of along the soft tissue of the body as in massage. Bowen has the added benefit of re-aligning the soft tissue of the body which further helps to address and relieve acute and chronic conditions of the body. Bowen is an holistic treatment that can be used for everyone from the new born to pregnant women and the elderly.
What to expect in your session:
The session begins with a comprehensive client assessment to evaluate the client’s current state of health, flexibility and mobility. A treatment plan is then prepared to address the condition or issue. The client is then treated through light, non-slip clothing (preferably cotton). Bowen moves and sequences are performed on both the back and front of the client’s body with the client usually lying on a massage table. The treatment may include some designated short resting periods to allow the body to re-align and adjust. The treatment aims to provide the body with long term relief from pain and discomfort and ease the body back into a state of balance.
The session including the assessment lasts about 55mins- 1hr.
Conditions treated include:
Head, neck and shoulder tension and pain.
Sports and accident injuries
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Respiratory issues and asthma
