Equine Bowen Therapy
Canine Bowen Therapy
Bowen is a non-invasive, holistic therapy consisting of a sequence of gentle moves over muscles and soft tissue, interspersed with periods of rest. Practitioners are constantly surprised at the effectiveness of the therapy.
A treatment usually lasts about 45 minutes and can be applied through light clothing. It is recommended that in order to obtain the full benefit, other 'hands-on' therapies are not applied less than 7 days before or after Bowen as these may interfere with the healing process.
The Bowen Technique was developed by Tom Bowen in Australia and named after him following his death in the early 80s. It has since flourished and spread world-wide.
Who will benefit from Bowen?
Men, women and children of all ages. It can help to improve the quality of life for the terminally ill, and to relieve the symptoms of infantile colic.
How is the therapy applied?
The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise points on the body making rolling-type moves which aim to stimulate energy into the muscles and soft tissue. During the treatment the therapist will leave the room for short periods, allowing the client to rest while the body responds to the moves already performed and make subtle adjustments to initiate the healing process.
The Bowen Technique encourages re-alignment of the body; there is no manipulation of hard tissue and no force is used or needed. Treatment at regular intervals can help manage stress and encourage health maintenance.
