Bowen work consists of a series of gentle rolling moves on specific areas of the body. Frequent pauses in-between allow the body time to fully respond. Each person will respond differently, healing at their own pace. You lie on a treatment table or are seated. Bowen moves are performed either on the skin or through light, loose clothing, based on your preference.
During the first session, we will discuss your medical history, reasons for coming, and include a treatment. Each follow-up session begins with an update on how you have responded to the previous one to determine the next course of treatment. Each session is 45-60 minutes. Acute conditions usually respond in 1-3 sessions. Additional sessions may be required for chronic health problems. Sessions are booked 7-10 days apart.
Following treatment, it is recommended that you forgo any other manipulative or energetic therapies for five days as your body is still going through adjustments to re-organize and heal.
Barbara Gordon, Bowen Therapist, BODY HARMONICS Pilates Certified Teacher
For six years, I suffered from chronic low back pain. I had to be careful how I got out of bed, how I stepped off a curb, how I sat, how I stood and how I bent down. My life was full of restrictions. I felt old. After trying many therapies over the years I had four sessions of Bowen and my pain melted away. That was 10 years ago. Now I have my life back. I was, and am, so astounded by the subtlety and profound strength of this therapy that I had to find out more. In the process, Bowen Therapy has become the deeply rewarding focus of my life’s work.
