Bowen Therapy Thorpe Bay,
What is Bowen?
Bowen is a holistic, gentle, hands on therapy that stimulates the autonomic nervous system to shift from sympathetic to parasympathetic. The body can then rest, relax and start to recover.
What to wear?
Although I prefer to work on skin, Bowen may be practiced through LIGHT or THIN and LOOSE clothing such as joggers/ shorts and a t shirt.
What does a Bowen session involve?
A session involves one or more procedures made up of sets of “moves”. Between each set of moves there are pauses for the body to begin responding. It does so holistically by using the body’s innate healing mechanisms. The practitioner delivers signals to the nervous system at specific locations using fingers or thumbs to move over muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia or nerves and the body does the rest, responding in its own time, as it is able.
This therapy can be effective to help relieve everyday stresses and revitalise the whole person. Each Bowen therapy session varies according to the particular problems of the client. By focusing on the lower and mid back and legs, the upper back, shoulders and the neck, a sense of wellbeing can be achieved, helping relaxation, aiding sleep – helping to remove everyday stress and anxiety that can make us feel under-par or prevent us functioning at our optimum.
A session may last between 40mins - 1 hour and the client may require any where between 2 - 4 sessions, depending on the gravity of their condition.
It may take time for the body to unwind to the origin of pain but clients usually experience a fast pain relief after the very first session. The therapy continues to work subtly between sessions, yet has a powerful impact and corrects malalignment, releases toxins encouraging lymphatic drainage, energy and blood flow, according to their needs.

I trained under Bowtech, a long-established school of Bowen. I am also a member of Bowen Association UK.
The original Bowen technique was developed by the late Tom Bowen from Australia and I believe it is the most gentle and relaxing therapy I know of.
