What is the Bowen Technique? Bowen is a gentle non-invasive procedure, and in some cases the treatment can be done with the client wearing light clothing. The treatment is so gentle that it can be used on anyone from babies through to the older client. The practitioner uses thumbs or fingers to make a series of precise, rolling-type moves over muscle. During the treatment there are a series of short breaks where the patient is left resting to allow their body to respond to the gentle moves that have been performed. This rest period is an important part of the treatment and gives the body time to make the subtle and fine adjustments, which help to re-balance, relieve tension and reduce pain. It is these features which make the Bowen Technique unique.
What does the treatment involve? Liz Auliffe – Bowen Technicque Practitoner An appointment will take approximately 45 minutes and most of the work can be performed through light clothing (or directly on the skin). Four to five treatments at weekly intervals are often sufficient to achieve lasting relief, although further treatments may be required. To receive maximum benefit it is recommended that other physical therapies are not mixed with the Bowen Technique for example, reflexology, massage, physiotherapy.
