Bowen Therapy is a gentle back treatment that is designed to clear blockages in the muscular system to bring about back pain relief
Bowen therapy is a non-invasive therapy, which targets specific points around the body. The goal is to rebalance, repair and reset the back and the muscular skeletal system. In my experience it has the advantage of generally not requiring lots of repetitive treatment sessions.
Clients often comment on improved energy levels, as well as back pain relief and improvement with functionality. It is useful with other related conditions, such as shoulder and neck pain, RSI, hip, ankle, elbow, wrist and knee problems, sciatica, sports injuries, pelvic misalignment, tendonitis, as well as any other muscular skeletal pain.
Depending upon one’s specific requirements other natural remedies, in particular nutritional, herbal or homeopathic medicines, can be applied to aid and speed up healing and back pain. For example, Magnesium is a great muscle relaxant and is taken in balance with other minerals. Homeopathics can also be useful.
Bowen Therapy was developed by Tom Bowen during the 1950s in Australia. Nick Dale was trained in Australia by Ossie Rentsche, who was personally taught by Tom Bowen, and who went on to co-found the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia in 1987.
When coming for an appointment, it is best to allow 60 minutes, although most treatments are completed in 30-40 minutes. It is best that people arrive in loose clothing, such as tracksuits. It is not necessary to remove clothing during treatment, unless there is a tight belt, or something similar. The cost for a Bowen Therapy session is £35 for the initial treatment, and follow up appointments are £28.
