Bowen is a remedial technique that empowers the body’s own healing mechanisms by stimulating muscles, tendons and ligaments. Bowen therapy consists of gentle rolling movements over the muscles, which triggers them to relax, regulate and rebalance. The pressure applied to the soft connective tissue (fascia) helps to release stress and tension so then the body can make the appropriate adjustments to realign itself. A Bowen session will continue to create change for up to two to four days after the treatment.

Bowen is safe to use on anyone from newborn babies to the frail elderly. Bowen is used to treat musculoskeletal and neurological complaints and does not involve any forced manipulation.

What can I expect from a treatment?

This video was kindly created by CentrodeTerapia Bowen for KundaliniHouse.

A session usually lasts for 60 minutes and can be done with the client wearing light clothing or in their underwear. Your Bowen practitioner will apply sequences of rolling movements over different parts of the body with varying pressures to stimulate relaxation and balance. There may be rest periods for 2-5 minutes to allow the body to integrate the work being performed.

After your Bowen session it is necessary to refrain from other modalities (massage, chiropractic, acupuncture) and even hot baths, strong physical exercise as this seems to neutralise the changes the body is trying to accomplish.
