What To Expect From Bowen Therapy

Pain Spots Woman Facing Away

When should I get Bowen Therapy?

The ideal time for a Bowtech session is immediately after an injury. That way, your body can overcome the trauma before it begins to compensate for it. (The compensations often create more problems in the long run than the initial trauma itself.) If you can't get to a Bowtech practitioner immediately, the sooner you can, the better.

What to expect during Bowen Therapy

A typical Bowen Technique session generally lasts up to 60 minutes. Clients usually lie on a therapy bed or may be seated in a chair if required, for comfort. A 'session' involves one or more 'procedures', each of which consists of several sets of 'moves'. The moves are gentle, but purposeful, and can be done through light clothing but are usually done on bare skin.

There are rests of usually 2 -5 minutes between moves these are essential pauses throughout the session that allow the body time to process and begin healing. We can target a specific problem or address the body as a whole.
