The Bowen Fascial Release Technique

 

What is it?

The practitioner uses thumbs or fingers to make a series of precise, rolling-type moves over muscle. During the treatment there will be short breaks where the client is left resting to allow their body to respond to the gentle moves that have been performed. This rest period is an important part of the treatment and gives the body time to make the subtle adjustments which help to re-balance, relieve tension and reduce pain. It is these features which make the Bowen Technique unique.

 

What does it treat?

The Bowen Technique aims to balance the whole person, not just the symptoms. Common presentations include back and neck pain, knee problems, sports injuries, RSI, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow and respiratory problems, to name but a few. Practically any problem can potentially be addressed and some people use the Bowen Technique as a means of stress management and health maintenance, seeing their therapist regularly 2-4 times a year.

Here is a list of some of the more common ailments to be treated and how people are amazed at the effectiveness of this simple and gentle hands-on therapy.

  • back and neck pain/ sciatica frozen shoulder/ tennis elbow
  • sports injuries/ chronic and acute leg length differences/ tilted pelvis
  • joint pain/ muscle spasm
  • hamstring strain
  • pain management
  • acute and chronic fatigue
  • asthma, hayfever
  • bronchial complaints
  • ittitable bowel sydrome
  • digestive problems
  • strokes
  • whiplash
  • infant colic
  • PMT
  • And more

What does a treatment involve?

An appointment will take approximately 60 - 90 minutes and most of the work can be performed through light clothing (or directly on skin). Three to four treatments, at weekly intervals, are often sufficient to achieve lasting relief although further treatments may be required. To receive maximum benefit, it is recommended that other physical therapies are not mixed with the Bowen Technique, for example, reflexology, massage and physiotherapy.

 

Who can it help?

The Bowen Technique is suitable for adults and children, including newborn babies and the elderly.

For those 'sporty' people, this treatment is also very effective at helping already 'well' people to rebalance and strengthen muscles for power, speed and stamina. It will help lessen the chances of injury and improve performance in general.

Treatments sessions cost £40.00 individually.

For a course of 3 sessions which is recommended initially to help your body balance and address the issue/s £111 (saving £9)

For a course of 5 sessions to be taken as suggested £175.00 ( saving £25.00)
