RELAXATION
A Bowen treatment is very relaxing.
It is mostly performed with the person lying on a treatment couch, although Tom Bowen (the originator of the work) provided beds in his clinic, order to encourage a sense of deeper relaxation.
HOLISTIC HEALING
The Bowen Technique embodies a truly holistic approach to healthcare. It is concerned not just with treating specific conditions and symptoms, but also with encouraging a natural potential for health to express itself in every aspect of the patient's life.
TIME OUT

A unique feature of the Bowen Technique is the frequent pauses between each series od moves. These are given to allow the body to respond and integrate what is being done. During these pauses, the therapist will usually leave the room.
This lets the person relax without feeling that they have to keep up a conversation ot that they are being watched.
BOWEN EFFECTS
Bowen therapists sometimes talk about the different effects on posture, particularly 'ascending' and 'descending' influences. The key to effective treatment is to find where the original organising factor in someone's condition is located. For example, a knee injury might be due to a weak toe joint or a pelvic imbalance that is putting undue strain on a knee as that person walks. Similarly, headaches may be the result of an old fall on the tailbone.
Bastille Day reflections: 
"It is the Eiffel Tower that is an inspiration to many. As it stands stately and erect it reminds me of our spinal column. The four legs on which it rests I liken to the four tendons at the base of our sacrum balancing us. These ligaments the sacra tuberous ligament and sacro spinus ligament together with the Psoas muscle attachement to the lesser trocanter provide our spine with appropriate support and stability and balance as do the legs of the Eiffel Tower. 
Longue via à la technique Bowen!"
