FAQ's about Bowen Therapy

 

No, most conditions are essentially resolved in 2 to 3 sessions; however chronic or long standing conditions may require more extensive programs. Many clients have routine maintenance treatments at different intervals to maintain body balance and muscular -skeletal integrity, avoid costly regression and as an investment in their health.

 

Bowen may be done through clothing. However, there are some moves that are most effective on exposed skin, for example “the shoulder procedure” and we always recommend our clients allow us to have access to their shoulder. You may be asked to remove bulky items such as thick jumpers or thick jeans that restrict a fluid movement being performed. Ideally clothing should be light and loose with only one layer to work through.

After a treatment most people feel good and notice improvement. "Cross-fibre-moves" don’t generally happen to our body in every-day-life. They create changes in our body according to priority, regardless of our conscious wants and wishes. Consequently, we can never predict how you will feel after a Bowen Therapy session. It may well be different from treatment to treatment. Occasionally people may feel sore or "washed out" or they may feel they have had a real work-out. If that does occur, it usually happens only after the first or second treatment. After that, the body "knows" how to respond to Bowen Therapy and people generally feel positive effects only.

Our bodies function optimally with the appropriate amount of water. Why? Throughout the body we have connective tissue (fascia).
