Bowen Therapy

Gentle and relaxing hands-on therapy

45 mins - 1hr     |    £35

The Bowen Technique is a holistic treatment that is gentle and effective in treating many diseases and disorders of the body. Bowen can benefit people of all ages including babies and young children.


A Bowen session can be carried out on the skin or through light clothing, either on a massage couch or in a seated position depending on client’s needs.  The effects from the Bowen treatment will continue to work for up to 7 days and it is recommended to avoid other holistic therapies during this period.


Thumbs and fingers are used to perform gentle rolling type moves that stimulate the muscles and energy systems within the body.  The series of moves helps to reset imbalances, promotes relief from pain by stimulating the muscles and soft tissue. It is a great therapy for stress and encourages good sleeping patterns.

What to expect in a treatment session


When booking a Bowen treatment for the first time, it is recommended that you plan to attend three treatment sessions, approximately one week apart. This allows the therapist to assess your initial response to the technique and follow up the first treatment accordingly.


A first treatment including full case history of past and present illnesses including accidents and injuries consultation lasts 60 mins, with subsequent treatments 45 minutes. Initially the treatments are scheduled between 5 and 7 days.


Treatments can mostly be performed through light clothing and generally address the whole body as well as any presenting problems.  


A key feature of a Bowen treatment is that the therapist will make a couple of moves and then leave the room for a few minutes. This short break gives time for the body to respond to the very precise and effective stimulation of the gentle moves.


In some cases relief from the presenting symptoms can be experienced after the first visit. Many people state that over the following 3-5 days they experience reactions as the body accepts the therapy and realigns itself. Acute conditions can respond immediately; chronic conditions may take longer.
