What is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen therapy is a holistic, hands-on technique consisting of rolling motions applied by a practitioner to specific points on the body. 


How does Bowen work?

Bowen practitioners apply gentle, rolling movements with their thumbs or fingers. Soft pressure is applied to very specific points on the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the body. These points are rich in special receptors, enabling the movements used by Bowen practitioners to stimulate the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS then sends out signals to the parts of the body where adjustments, restoration and healing are needed.


Is Bowen therapy safe?

Bowen therapy is safe for everyone, including babies, pregnant women and the elderly.


Will I need to undress?

No, you do not have to undress. Bowen treatment can be done over loose-fitting, light clothing. We do not recommend wearing heavy or tight fabrics.


How many Bowen treatments will I need?

Initially, we recommend three sessions at 7-day intervals. However, some minor ailments may resolve after the first treatment, depending on your overall health.

Further follow-up consultations can take place monthly or as required.


Is Bowen a type of massage?

No, Bowen is not a massage. Bowen therapists don’t use any essential oils or lotions during treatment.


Can I combine Bowen and Homeopathy?

Yes, Bowen therapy and Homeopathy complement each other very well. In many cases, their combined use can accelerate recovery.


Can Bowen therapy reduce my stress levels?

Bowen treatment is gentle and very relaxing. It resets the body’s systems from “fight or flight” response (the sympathetic nervous system) into “rest and digest” response (parasympathetic nervous system).

Regular Bowen sessions may be very useful during challenging periods of your life.
