Clare Kidd, Torquay Bowen Therapist
I provide a complete Bowen Therapy service either on my own premises or in the client's home. The Bowen technique is a very gentle and highly effective technique that can address a wide range of conditions. It is particularly helpful for skeletal, joint and muscle problems.
Bowen Therapy is a hands-on therapy that is applied using very gentle pressure. The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise points of the body, usually over muscles, tendons and ligaments, which stimulate the muscles and soft tissue of the body. There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used.
The experience of a treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing. It is believed that the Bowen Technique prompts the body to repair and re balance itself and clients report the experience of pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy. The practitioner leaves the room for a few minutes between moves, In order to give the body time to adjust and respond.
The technique can be effective for long term, chronic ailments, recent injuries and can also be effective for other health problems such as anxiety, depression and sleeplessness.
The treatment has an effect on the whole body, rather than treating one element and is suitable for people of all ages including babies.
Training, qualifications & experience
Fully Qualified Bowen (Bowtech) Practitioner and Member of The Bowen Association
As with many people who practice this technique, I became a Bowen therapist through suffering from a long-term physical problem of my own which was not resolved by sustained therapeutic intervention.
I originally qualified as a Social Worker and spent many years working in Child Protection, undertaking therapeutic work with children and, latterly, in the area of fostering, After leaving social work I trained as an Holistic Massage Therapist but due to my own back problems, I found this very physically demanding.
I have never ceased to be amazed by the positive effects Bowen Therapy has upon the client's I have treated. I have had personal experience of the fact that many patients (including myself after my first Bowen treatment) leave the first session with a deep sense of relaxations but also a sense of wonderment as to how such gentle, subtle and non-invasive moves could succeed in alleviating their condition.
£25 per session on my premises
