Mother, baby and Bowen therapy

During pregnancy

Bowen therapy has a very important role to play in the health care of women both during and after pregnancy. Bowen technique is integral for mothers-to-be as it is one of the only therapies that can be performed in its entirety, being very gentle, with the patient sitting down or lying on their side, whilst remaining clothed.

Bowen therapy can treat all common pregnancy pains from morning sickness, tiredness, to physical pain such as back ache, sciatica, assist with digestive problems as well as psychological and emotional well-being.

For new mothers

Bowen is helpful in speeding recovery after birth. Treatment focuses on encouraging the uterus to contract and helping the pelvis to realign. The sooner after labour the mother comes for treatment, the more effective Bowen therapy will be.

For babies

Birth is one of the most traumatic processes a child will go through and Bowen therapy can be given within days of birth.

Bowen can be extremely effective in treating colic, digestive problems, chest infections and restlessness as it is gentle enough to be used on the most delicate of babies. As babies change so fast often the results can be seen during the course of the session.

Bowen is generally pleasant to receive each session lasting 30 to 60 minutes. Many clients become so relaxed they fall asleep during treatment.
