About Bowen Therapy - answering frequently asked questions

This section of the Time to Treat web site focuses on Bowen Therapy - giving you a background to where the therapy has grown from and how it addresses particular complaints and injuries.

What is unique about Bowen Therapy?

  • You are given time to respond during the treatment session.
  • The pace of the Bowen Therapy is governed by your response to the Bowen moves.
  • Bowen Therapists do not impose their will on either you or the outcome of the treatment.
  • The body is treated as a whole, (no part of the body is considered to act and exist in isolation).
  • The initial Bowen moves aim to re-balance the body prior to addressing the affected part. (Otherwise it would be rather like replacing your worn car tyres whilst you have a twisted chassis.)
  • We treat, for example. the good arm first. The mind, seeing how gentle the Bowen moves are, 'releases' the affected arm for treatment knowing that it is not going to be put into pain

How does Bowen Therapy work?

It is a remedial therapy in which the practitioner uses thumbs and forefingers on precise points on the body to make rolling type moves that aim to disturb the muscles, soft tissue and the nerves within the body. These moves stimulate the body to make the adjustments that help to rebalance, relieve tension and reduce pain.

There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue. It is not a form of massage. The treatment affects the body in ways that promote healing, pain relief, and recovery of energy.

The experience of the treatment is gentle, subtle, and relaxing. It is these features which make the Bowen Technique so unique.

Who can be helped by Bowen Therapy?

Babies, children, and the elderly.

It is generally regarded as safe, gentle and effective for people of all ages. The practitioner tailors the treatment for those who are either very young, or in a weakened or frail state.

Sportsmen

A growing number of athletes and their physiotherapists are discovering that regular Bowen treatments enhance performance and reduce the incidence of injury.

Roy Wilson has found that the Bowen Technique brings rapid relief and quickly enables the player to get back into the game. (Hamstring injury can be treated on the pitch.)
