It is a ‘whole person’ approach working with your entire body rather than only focusing on one specific problem or symptom.
Bowen uses a unique rolling type move at the pressure appropriate to you, in order to stimulate a response and release tension. This move does not involve hard adjustments, it is not a flick of muscle or a massage. Instead it uses the skin slack available to move over the underlying muscle, tendon and connective tissue. Each move covers only a small area, defined by how much slack is available for each individual.
The therapist pauses 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.
Treatment can be performed through light clothing so there is no need to undress.
This therapy is relaxing to receive and is suitable for all ages and all types of people.
