Bowen Technique

Bowen Technique – Initial session 90 mins 115 euro and Follow Up 45 – 60 mins 90 euro

Bowen Technique was originally developed in the 1950s by Australian Tom Bowen. This technique is now practiced worldwide and has helped millions of people alleviate a wide range of physical and emotional conditions.

What does a typical session look like?

Bowen treatment is given through light clothing and is very gentle and non-invasive. Bowen Technique is safe to use on anyone, from baby to elderly and for any musculoskeletal or related neurological complaint.
It is a holistic approach that treats the whole person and aims to treat the cause of a problem, rather than the symptoms.
For most people, Bowen treatment appears to ‘un-block’ the repair and recovery process, prompting and assisting the body to use its own built-in resources to recover, repair, restore, balance, integrate or realign itself. Pain relief, emotional release and recovery of energy are common responses to Bowen. People consistently find the experience of a treatment to be exceptionally relaxing. Initial session of Bowen will take 90 minutes and the follow up session will approximately about 45 – 60 minutes. The immediate effects of a Bowen treatment continue for a number of days afterwards as the response develops. For this reason, appointments are usually one week apart. But there are some instances where clients can or should have repeat treatment within the space of
7 days. For example, in the case of re-injury, pregnancy, terminal illness/palliative care and any form of brain damage especially stroke victims, treatment can be given more often where practical.
A response to Bowen will be apparent within one to three or, maximum, four treatments. If more treatments are needed, they are undertaken with the knowledge that Bowen is resolving a problem. Bowen practitioners have observed that approximately 80% of their clients do respond to Bowen with significant improvement or complete resolution of their complaints. This makes Bowen a very time-and cost-effective treatment option.
