  • Bowen Therapy is time effective and cost effective. Three sessions is usually all that is needed to get the response you want.
  • As a procedure, Bowen is very relaxing whilst losing none of its effectiveness in combating aches, pain and stress.
  • Bowen therapy does not depend on the physical strength of the therapist. Only the pads of fingers and thumbs are used to apply minimal (gentle) pressure, rolling over various key areas of soft tissue, muscle and ligament. Many of these small movements are made during a treatment session.
  • Bowen does not involve massage, deep tissue movement, joint manipulation, repeated pressure moves or the use of any oils.
  • Bowen Therapy is undoubtedly unique, as it utilizes the body’s own capacity to rebalance and heal itself. These features promote Bowen as an ideal therapy for babies and children, pregnant women and for people suffering from chronic or acute pain.
