It is a non-invasive treatment applied to the body using thumbs and fingers. It seeks to address imbalances primarily around the spine, pelvis, neck and head but also throughout the body. Bowen uses a unique rolling type move, at the pressure appropriate to you to stimulate a response, release tension and rebalance.
It is a ‘whole person’ approach and therefore works with your entire body rather than only focusing on one specific problem or symptom.
This move does not involve hard adjustments, it is not a flick of muscle or a massage. Instead it uses the skin available to move over the underlying muscle, tendon and connective tissue. Each move covers only a small area, defined by how much slack is available for each individual.
Treatment can be performed through light clothing so there is no need to undress.
This therapy is relaxing to receive and is suitable for all ages and all types of people from newborn to the elderly and infirm.
