Bowen Technique works on the principle that the body intuitively knows how to heal itself. Christine believes that the physical and spiritual sides of a person should both be treated and the holistic nature of Bowen means it is especially proficient at encompassing this philosophy. Treatment with Bowen allows the body to find a gentle solution, which is key to successful healing.
The Bowen technique is a non invasive remedial therapy. The practitioner uses fingers and thumbs to apply light pressure accurately to certain points of the body, using distinctive rolling-type movements. These send a message, through the stimulation of nerve endings, to the brain. This stimulation causes a subtle turn of events, initiating the body to reset and restore balance and harmony which, in turn, leads to pain relief, enhanced mobility and vitality. It is a very relaxing experience.
BOWEN FOR ASTHMA and RELAXATION
Bowen has an extremely soothing and calming effect on the body. During an asthma attack the patient panics and this sets off a cascade of potentially dangerous events. Bowen helps to reduce the severity and frequency of attacks and can, ultimately, lead to a change in medications. There are no age limits and Bowen Technique is a fundamentally relaxing treatment leading to an overall sense of deep calm and wellbeing.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST BOWEN APPOINTMENT:
Clients can wear light clothing, although these must not be slippery or tight. A treatment can last from 45 minutes to an hour. A medical history will be taken along with any information on current medication, past injuries or events specific to treatment. Further treatment should be 5-7 days apart and, in general, 3 treatments will be required, depending on the nature of the problem. Response to treatment can be either subtle or strong. Every person’s response is unique to them and this is recorded for future treatments. As the body acclimatizes to Bowen, balance is restored.
Diversity of moves and procedures permit the practitioner to focus on specific problem areas. Deeply relaxing and suitable for all ages, it can help in the management of a wide range of health problems and can work beautifully in conjunction with other therapies.
