WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT INVOLVE?
The treatment is given through light clothing, so no denims please. There are short breaks in between moves to allow the body to take on board what has been done.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Four to five treatments, at weekly intervals maybe sufficient to achieve 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 i.e. reflexology, massage and physiotherapy.
The Bowen Technique does actually LIKE being mixed with some disciplines and these are: Nutritional Therapy, Homeopathy, Flower Essences and dietary therapy.
WHERE DID IT ORIGINATE FROM?
Tom Bowen of Geelong, Australia developed his own 'technique' and had a thriving practice until he died in the 1980's. His approach is now known throughout the world.
