  • There is no vigorous manipulation
  • It's gentle and stimulating

  • It helps address both physical and emotional issues
  • Certified Practitioners are trained to Bowtech's high standards, fully insured and are require to undertake 16 hours of Continuous Professional Development training every year

A Bowen treatment consists of a series of gentle rolling moves with frequent pauses between moves giving the body time to benefit from each set. Practitioners treat the body as a whole or can target a specific problem, as they are able to pinpoint stress buildup in muscle groups and then release it.

The Bowen Technique both balances and stimulates – the restorative process beginning once the body is relaxed.

It’s referred to as ‘complementary’ – meaning it will enhance and complement other medical treatments. However, it should be noted that receiving other manipulative therapies immediately following a Bowen session can undermine the effectiveness of the Bowen work. It is better to wait a week before starting any other treatments.

Bowen is Holistic

The Bowen Technique is perhaps one of the single most important tools we have to help heal the body. The moves produce good results by penetrating to a deep cellular level – making use of the body’s own ability to heal itself. Moves begin to achieve holistic balance straight away, embracing the client’s physical and emotional aspects

We always recommend people discuss their health concerns with their General Practitioner. If after having done so you would like to consult a Bowen Technique practitioner, then you can  contact Valentis Therapy.
