What happens in a Bowen Therapy treatment

Bowen therapy consists of a series of gentle moves over soft tissue. Frequent pauses between moves give the body time to process and benefit from each set. By combining moves, the practitioner can either benefit the body as a whole, or target a specific problem. The length of the treatment session is from 30 to 45 minutes, and may be done on skin, or through clothing.

A key part of a Fascial Kinetics Bowen therapy session is comprehensive assessment and appraisal of the client’s condition, before and after the treatment is given. Both overall health status and presenting issues are taken into account. Healing is listening; the therapist not only listens with their hands but also to the clients words and body language.
Bowen therapy balances and stimulates energy flows, resulting in a deep sense of overall relaxation. The restorative process begins with the relaxation response, and the healing process continues to work after the treatment.

Common responses to treatment often include improved energy, better body mechanics and reduced pain. However, if the client is dehydrated, with ‘gluing’ patterns in the fascia, it is not uncommon for post treatment reactions to include tiredness, shifting musculo-skeletal discomfort and frequent urination. Generally these reactions only last for 24 – 36 hours.

Drinking water both pre and post treatment will enhance the overall results and reduce the intensity of reactions.
