About me

"Quite simply one of the most straight-forward and effective 'hands-on' therapies available"

The Bowen Technique aims to balance the whole person, not just the symptoms.

Common presentations include back and neck pain, knee problems, sports injuries and maintenance, RSI, frozen shoulders, tennis elbows and respiratory problems, hayfever, to name but a few.

Practically any problem can potentially be addressed and many people use the Bowen Technique as a means of stress management and health maintenance, seeing their therapist regularly 2-4 times a year.

The Bowen Technique is a gentle, subtle and relaxing hands on therapy using very gentle pressure.

It is not a form of massage and there is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue. It is safe for people of all ages - new born, children, adults..

Appointments take about 45 minutes and can be performed through light clothing.

There are a series of short breaks during the session allowing the body to respond to the gentle moves and making subtle and fine adjustments which re-balance, relieve tension and reduce pain.

Three or four treatments at weekly intervals are usually sufficient to achieve relief from even long standing pain. To receive maximum benefit it is recommended not to mix with other therapies such as massage, reflexology, physiotherapy etc for seven days before and after treatment.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a therapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the therapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
