gentle remedial +
suitable for all ages

Bowen Therapy is a remedial soft tissue therapy that restores the body's balance and improves general well-being. The gentle nature of Bowen Therapy makes it an effective and safe treatment option for people of all ages and conditions including babies, children, pregnant women, the elderly, those with autism, and hyper sensitivity (HSP + SPD).

Bowen is also great for people with acute or chronic health issues, musculoskeletal problems and those experiencing anxiety, depression or stress related conditions. 

During a session a series of gentle rolling type moves are made over specific points of skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia followed by short pauses to allow the body to integrate changes and begin healing. This resets the nervous system activating the body's innate ability to heal itself and encourages the return of homeostasis - the balance and regulation of all the body's systems.  

   

Sessions are deeply relaxing and result in significant pain reduction, improved posture, increased blood flow and resetting the nervous system from 'fight or flight' to 'rest and digest' mode.  

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TREATMENT?

Bowen sessions generally last 30-60 minutes. The client will lie comfortably on a treatment table as the therapist carries out the session. There are no oils used and light clothing can be worn. In the case of pregnancy or inability to lie prone you may be treated side lying or seated. During the treatment regular short pauses are taken, allowing the body to begin adjusting and integrating changes. Clients may experience deep relaxation, tension release, and an easing of pain as the treatment begins to stimulate a healing response.

HOW CAN BOWEN HELP ME?

Bowen may help conditions such as:

  • musculoskeletal injury + general tension

  • back pain, frozen shoulder, neck restriction

  • pelvic and postural imbalance

  • scoliosis

  • headache, migraines + hay fever

  • digestive complaints, IBS, constipation

  • respiratory complaints, asthma, bronchitis, persistent coughs

  • babies experiencing colic, sleep problems, birth injuries such as neck restriction and general unsettled behaviour

  • anxiety and stress related illness

  • sleep problems, insomnia

  • fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome

  • women's health + well-being including hormone imbalance, painful periods, PMS and pregnancy

  • children's health concerns including growing pains, TMJ issues, anxiety, bedwetting, asthma

  • autism and hyper sensitivity (HSP + SPD)

HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?

Generally it's recommended that all new clients commit to 3 sessions, each a week apart. This allows time to develop a treatment plan and assess how your body responds after each session. The initial 3 sessions really consolidate the changes and in the third session we can assess the progress made and decide if further treatments are required. Maintenance sessions are recommended every 4-6 weeks.


BABIES & YOUNG CHILDREN 

Babies respond very quickly to Bowen and will often fall asleep during treatment. It's a wonderful treatment for little ones who are unsettled or experiencing colic, constipation or respiratory issues. Bowen is also beneficial where birth has been traumatic and injuries may have occurred. Generally babies only need a couple of treatments to resolve current issues. Toddlers and young kids love the relaxing feeling of Bowen and often let their parents know when they'd like to come back! They will often experience improved sleep, more settled behaviour, decreased anxiety and any aches & pains are quickly settled. Bowen is wonderful for growing children and can also help settle allergies, ear nose & throat conditions and bed-wetting issues. 


BOWEN FOR WOMEN

Bowen Therapy is a natural method of improving hormone imbalance and settling the symptoms of menopause and painful periods. It also offers wonderful support during pregnancy, helping resolve aches and pains and gives a greater sense of well-being, increased energy and improved sleep.  It's also a deeply relaxing therapy, making it perfect for busy mums who need to relax and rebalance - physically, mentally and emotionally.


THE ELDERLY

Bowen Therapy can be a fantastic option for the elderly as it is gentle, natural and will not interfere with any other medical treatment. It is a complementary therapy. Bowen sessions can help keep the elderly active by decreasing muscular aches and pains, increasing ability to move comfortably, settle arthritis and ease digestive upsets.


MAINTENANCE SESSIONS    

Maintenance sessions are generally 4-6 weeks apart. This varies for everyone based on your individual needs. The aim is to keep any previous issues managed, increasing your overall well-being, preventing future illness or injury as much as possible and keeping your body in balance and in optimal health.
