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.
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.

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 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.


In the past eighteen months I have been hit a real curve ball. After a series of TIAs I was diagnosed with a left carotid artery aneurysm which was eventually stented in November 2010.

My Bowen Therapist started treating me soon after I was diagnosed with the aneurysm and, after a couple of weeks, the progressive growth of the aneurysm came to a standstill and my blackouts started to decrease.

Bowen saved my life as I waited for a stent to become available for my surgery. During this process I suffered other complications resulting in leg spasms, severe numbness and a feeling similar to walking on glass. This was originally diagnosed as restless leg syndrome. Walking was agony – suicide is painless. My condition worsened until eventually it was diagnosed as Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP).

Regular Bowen Therapy by Helen has lessened my symptoms and enabled me to at least live a life and finally have a degree of dignity.
