I made the decision to qualify in the Bowen Technique in 2012 after receiving regular Bowen sessions myself for a back problem which had occurred several years earlier. I now work at the Therapy Company's 2 clinics in St Annes and The Mill in the grounds of St Catherine's Hospice in Lostock Hall near Preston in an evening and at weekends.
I am a member of the Bowen Therapy Professional Association and continue my professional development by attending a minimum of 16 hours training each year
The Bowen Technique is a gentle but effective hands on holistic therapy which is suitable for all ages, including babies. Bowen may help with a variety of conditions and can aid relaxation in addition to providing pain relief.
A Bowen session typically lasts between 30 and 60 minutes during which time a series of movements are made over specific muscles, tendons and soft tissue. Breaks are taken after each set of moves where I leave the room to allow the body the time and space to respond to the moves. The moves can be made through light clothing
An initial set of 3 sessions, one week apart is recommended during which time it is suggested that other physical therapies such as physiotherapy should not be undertaken.
Training, qualifications & experience
I started my Bowen career at the Grant Smith Physiotherapy Centre in Lytham after qualifying with the (European) College of Bowen Studies in September 2012. In October 2014, I moved to the Therapy Company in St Annes which is a multi disciplinary therapy practice. I hold a Level 3 Diploma in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology for Complementary Therapists and a current British Red Cross First aid certificate.
Following my qualification in 2012, I have completed further training for 'Shoulder and Pelvic', 'Practitioner Development', 'The Role of the Bowen Therapist in Palliative Care', 'Fascia Bowen', 'Spinal Workshop', Mother and Baby Workshop' and 'Neuro Workshop'
A 30-60 minute Bowen sessions costs £35.00
