What is a Treatment Like?
What happens at an appointment?
Appointments start with a consultation chat and assessment followed by the treatment.
During a bowen treatment there will be pauses or breaks where I may leave the room. This break between each set of moves is to allow the body to process these signals and therefore increases the effectiveness of the treatment.
Treatments are usually whilst you are laying on your front, side or back on the therapy couch, however they can be done whilst you are sat in a chair if you are not able to lay down.
Bowen can be performed directly on the skin or through light clothing meaning there is no need to undress. T-shirts, joggers, leggings or light trousers are ideal to wear to your appointment.
What does it feel like?
Bowen generally uses a gentle rolling type movement and holding points, it is not a flick, ‘click’ or a slide over the skin. Instead, it uses the skin slack available to move over the underlying tissue. Each move covers only a small area. The move may be tender at times but the pressure applied can be adjusted to your comfort levels.
The amount of treatment will vary as each session is tailored to what you need as an individual at the time.
In most cases, you will feel an immediate relief however it is possible that you may walk out feeling only a little improvement. The responses in your body often occur in the days following a treatment resulting in a more effective improvement.
If you have never had bowen before, I strongly recommend an initial course of 3 sessions, 5-10 days apart to get the best from your bowen treatments.
This course will allow your body time to process the work, make changes and encourage these changes to hold. At the third appointment we will carry out a review and discuss your progress and the best course from there.
Many find that their complaint resolves after the initial course of 3 sessions however, in some cases it may take a little longer.
Follow Up Sessions
Many people have maintenance treatments to keep on top of their pain, aid in increased energy levels, manage stress levels and improve their overall health and well-being.
These sessions can be at an interval most appropriate to you such as monthly, 6-8 weeks or 3 months or when you feel the need for a top up.
Follow up sessions can be a standard hour or a half an hour treatment.
