Bowen Treatment Explained

  • A course of Bowen Therapy for specific problems, rarely takes more than three consultations at weekly intervals, to achieve lasting relief.
  • A treatment can last from a few minutes (babies and infants), to approximately 45 minutes. Your first session always includes an assessment, so it is advisable to allow one hour.
  • Treatment can be performed through light clothing (no undressing). Heavy fabric e.g. denim can be difficult to work through and so should be avoided.
  • Routinely, treatment takes place on a treatment couch in a relaxing and private environment. If it is too uncomfortable or unsuitable to lie down e.g. individuals with back pain or those who are pregnant, then alternative support is used to maintain comfort. Children are managed with the parent’s involvement and in a suitably informal way.
  • During treatment, the therapist regularly leaves the room. Each break is only a few minutes long but they are an essential part of the treatment, providing the body with the time it requires, to start the process of rebalancing and repair.
  • Aftercare information is provided to help you get maximum benefit from your treatment. Occasionally, gentle exercises are recommended which will be fully explained and demonstrated.
  • It can take a few days before the effects of Bowen Therapy are noticed. This is a normal response pattern.
  • Consultations can be provided in the workplace if this is more convenient.
