It is a ‘whole person’ approach thus addressing your entire body rather than focusing on only one specific problem or symptom.
Bowen uses a unique rolling type move at the pressure appropriate to you, in order to stimulate a response. This move does not involve hard adjustments, it is not a flick of muscle and it does not slide over the skin. Instead it uses the skin slack available to move over the underlying tissue. Each move covers only a small area, defined by how much slack is available for each individual.
The therapist pauses or leaves the room between each set of moves to allow the body to process these signals. These breaks increase the effectiveness of the treatment, therefore providing an effective solution to manage or resolve physical pain and reduce stress.
This therapy is relaxing to receive and is suitable for all ages and all types of people.
