Bowen therapy is a very relaxing therapy which is usually applied either to bare skin or through loose clothing. You may be asked to drink water before your session, due to the technique requiring fully hydrated cells and tissues.
During the session you will usually lie on a therapy table. The therapist will apply subtle, relaxing rolling moves across specific muscle groups, tendons and ligaments. A feature of Bowen is that between sets of movements the therapist will quietly sit down and allow you to rest for about 2 minutes. This interval allows your body to make a decision about its response to the given moves. The session lasts up to an hour.
Once treatment is completed you will usually be asked to drink more water before being advised of possible physical and emotional changes you may experience.
Follow-up consultations will more than likely include a progress review and a viable reassessment.
