WOMEN'S HEALTH & WELLBEING

Relaxing, Remedial & Restorative

 

WHAT IS BOWEN THERAPY?

 

Also known as The Bowen Technique, Bowen Therapy is a soft tissue treatment developed by an Australian named Tom Bowen in the 1950s

 

- A hands-on treatment to encourage tight muscles to relax and release

 

- A cross-fibre move that treats the body’s soft connective tissue (fascia, muscles, ligaments, tendons)

 

- BT is gentle and relaxing

- A session consists of sequences of movements over specific areas of the body

- Is done with the client lying on a treatment/massage table through light clothing

Susie has a special interest in clients with mild chronic issues rather than in acute pain 

 

WHEN TO SEE ANOTHER THERAPIST

 

Please see a Remedial Massage Therapist, Physio, Chiro, Osteopath, GP or Specialist if you have a pain score of more than 6/10 (10/10 being strong pain)

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Relaxation! The session starts with a guided breathing exercise to encourage deeper, smoother breathing. Using acupressure and Bowen Therapy techniques through their light clothing, clients soon start to shift from flight, fright or freeze into rest, digest and repair, the part of the nervous system where healing takes place

WHAT NOT TO EXPECT 

​Let's keep it real! One session of Bowen Therapy isn't likely to offer you a miracle cure! Like all hands-on treatments, there's a level of commitment from you which might include doing an exercise or two to boost your results + committing to one treatment a week for 4-6 weeks, then a maintenance session every 4-6 weeks depending on your presenting issue
