The Bowen Technique – Welcome relief for Mums, Mums-to-be & even Tiny Tots!

As the fastest growing complementary therapy in the UK today, The Bowen Technique offers relief for a wide range of painful and stress-related conditions, usually with amazingly quick results. Bowen is gentle and completely safe. Treatments can be seated, lying on one side or even standing when required, making it an ideal choice for addressing discomfort during and post-pregnancy. Significant improvements are often experienced after just one treatment with complete resolution of many complaints in only three sessions, making it one of the most cost-effective and time-efficient therapies available.

Bowen therapy works by stimulating the body’s own resources deeply and accurately. Using only light pressure, unique rolling movements are made over specific muscles, ligaments and tendons at key stress points of the body. All tension, postural and injury-based muscular or skeletal complaints can be addressed – in fact anything you may visit an osteopath or chiropractor for; without the need for force or hard tissue manipulation. Bowen tackles the root cause of back and pelvic pain and has proven highly effective in bringing fast relief for Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD) sufferers.

In addition to bringing about the release of tense muscles and total realignment of the skeletal frame, the process encourages the body to switch off the ‘fight or flight’ stress response – implicated in many health issues. This has a calming and balancing effect, helping all body processes to normalise. This can be hugely beneficial for lowering blood pressure and fluid retention and related symptoms such as swollen ankles, heavy legs and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Bowen also helps to address a wide range of symptoms and conditions associated with hormonal imbalances including mood swings, depression, stress, anxiety, headaches and insomnia.

As an excellent de-stressor, Bowen boosts healing and repair processes and is therefore great for helping the body to prepare for and recover from surgery. Bowen also offers great post-natal support in helping the pelvis, spine and pelvic floor muscles to re-position correctly, helps hormones to rebalance and can address mastitis and lactation difficulties.

Bowen can also be instrumental in treating a struggling immune system, addressing many inflammatory conditions such as asthma, arthritis and many gynaecological, urinary and digestive conditions including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Managing stress levels and supporting our body during stressful times can help us to cope better. Importantly, it can also make a big difference in lowering the risk of long term damage to our health.

Each Bowen session addresses the body as a whole, working with the central nervous system to tap into the body’s own resources to get right to the root of the problem. As well as bringing fast relief from specific symptoms that prompted the initial visit, the treatment often resolves many other niggling underlying complaints. Patients regularly report added benefits including sounder sleep, boosted energy levels, a more positive, motivated and uplifted outlook and a calmer approach to coping with life’s challenges.

Babies and children of all ages tend to be amazingly responsive to The Bowen Technique. Common problems for newborns such as neck restrictions, head compressions, respiratory difficulties and colic can sometimes resolve in just one treatment. Bowen can also be very effective for childhood eczema and asthma, glue ear and bedwetting. Teenage skin complaints, growing pains, menstrual pain and anxiety are often successfully treated with Bowen.

There is no situation when The Bowen Technique cannot be safely used – in fact, Bowen achieves fast and effective results for newborns through to the very elderly for a wide range of conditions. Many people achieve excellent results from Bowen, having tried many other approaches and therapies with limited success.
