“Bowen involves a series of gentle moves across muscle, tendon
& other soft tissue, applying gentle pressure. Regular intervals between
the moves give the body time to make the subtle & fine adjustments
that help relieve tension, reduce pain & initiate the healing process.”
Hilary & Jeremy, Bowen Therapists explaining the theory behind Bowen
Therapists who provide this service: Hilary Leach
Bowen therapy is a soft tissue remedial therapy that involves the therapist using fingers or thumbs to move over muscle, ligament, tendon and fascia in various parts of the body. This sequence of gentle moves, over muscle and soft tissue is interspersed with periods of rest which awakens the body’s resources to auto-regulate, naturally heal and protect itself. Bowen can also be effective to help relieve everyday stresses and revitalise the whole person. It is usually carried out over light clothing.
Each Bowen therapy session varies according to the particular problems of the client. By focusing on the lower and mid back and legs, the upper back, shoulders and the neck, a sense of wellbeing can be achieved, helping relaxation, aiding sleep – helping to remove everyday stress and anxiety that can make us feel under-par or prevent us functioning at our optimum. Some of the reported beneﬁts of Bowen are that it relaxes the muscles, helps to get rid of stress, helps to promote relaxation and may also reduce pain.
Session Times + Fees:

The best results are usually obtained by having two or three treatments, five to ten days apart, with seven days being the optimum interval. Thereafter some clients find they only need to visit their therapist occasionally to maintain the improvements.
