The Bowen technique is a series of gentle rolling type moves that are made on precise points of the body across muscles, tendons, nerves and fascia. These moves help to relieve muscle tension and pain, re-balance the nervous system and so aiding the body's ability to heal itself.
How can it help me?
Bowen is holistic - this means it treats you as a whole, rather than named conditions or problems. For example, shoulder pain can sometimes be helped with treatment in other areas of the body. This means that, even if a problem area is too painful to touch, you may still be helped with treatment elsewhere on your body. This is the real beauty of Bowen, it is suitable for people of all ages and levels of mobility, including babies and expectant mothers.
What can I expect?
We are mobile therapists treating in West London and surrounding areas. We can treat you in your own home or you can visit Dawn at her therapy room in Twickenham. We provide fleece blankets and a therapy bed. Treatment is performed with clothes on but must be comfortable and easy fitting like leggings/shorts and T.Shirt, (no jeans or trousers with pockets) Seated treatments are also possible for people with limited mobility.
What happens after a treatment?
After treatment you will be encouraged to observe any changes you experience in the few days following your appointment and will be asked to support your treatment by drinking plenty of water. This helps to keep your body hydrated and assist it with toxin removal. You may also be given some very simple exercises to do.
How many treatments?
Initially we recommend two to three sessions of a week apart. Your first appointment will involve taking a case history and will last about 75mins, the following treatments will last about one hour. If we find you get no results then we refer on after the 3 sessions. Some people may not need to come back but for others top up sessions are beneficial particularly for the elderly or chronic conditions.
