My experience of Bowen therapy

Rhiannon's story

Bowen therapy (also known as Bowen technique) is a holistic therapy that targets specific points on the body to encourage its ability to balance, repair and reset itself.

There are a number of conditions that Bowen therapy is believed to help with, including:

– migraines
– knee and hip problems
– mobility issues
– digestive problems
– sports injuries
– fatigue
– stress.

Rhiannon’s story

“A friend of mine was training for their Bowen qualification and asked if anyone was interested in being a case study for her. At the time, I didn’t know much about Bowen therapy, how it worked or the benefits, but I was curious to find out more, so I volunteered. After doing some research into the technique, I was skeptical. However, I was keen to find out if it would work.

The experience was very relaxing and I fell into a dream-like state during the session. I felt an immediate effect for some of my symptoms, which I thought was really impressive. Over the week, I continued to feel the benefits.

My body “listened” to the practitioner’s instructions and without any manual manipulation, started to realign and balance itself. By the end of week four, I noticed a huge difference to my posture, overall well-being and was experiencing less pain in my joints.”
