Bowen Technique Practitioner in London

If you are seeking a gentle but very effective form of therapy, then The Bowen Technique (Bowen Fascial Release Technique or Bowen Therapy) may be exactly what you are looking for! The Bowen Technique is a holistic, remedial form of bodywork. There is no manipulation of hard tissue and no force applied. In my experience it is effective at relieving or resolving an array of muscular/skeletal, organic and reproductive problems. This makes the Bowen Technique one of the most versatile therapeutic treatments available today. The Bowen Technique has no contra indications; it is a treatment that is appropriate for everyone, from the young to the old, the active to the infirm.

I came across the Bowen Technique when I became unwell with Knee issues, having received Bowen I was overwhelmed with how effective the treatment was, not only
did it treat my knee issues but it completely resolved my Irritable Bowel Syndrome which I had suffered from for about 30 years . This instigated the beginning of my
journey of becoming a therapist myself, I have since trained and treated clients that have benefited from the Bowen Technique.

Background & Qualifications

ITEC diploma in Anatomy , Physiology and Pathology
Certificate of proficiency in the Bowen Fascia Release Technique at the College of Bowen Studies

My Specialisms

It is believed that the Bowen Technique prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself, providing a simple and effective way to deal with pains, both physical and emotional. Treatment can be performed directly onto the skin with you dressed in your underwear with full towel etiquette (for your warmth and modesty) or through light clothing if you prefer. In this case please arrive wearing something lightweight and non-slippery. A t-shirt and loose trousers or shorts (not jeans) are ideal. If you are wearing bulky or heavy items of clothing such as a thick jumper, you will be asked to remove these before the treatment can begin.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

Initial treatments are best scheduled between 5 - 10 days apart with a course of 3 being booked. Some issues resolve after only one session but others may require regular treatments to maintain the improvement. You do not need to wait until you feel unwell or are in pain to benefit from Bowen Therapy. Many clients find it beneficial to have ‘top-up' or ‘maintenance' treatments as this helps the body to function at its best, manage stress and can help prevent new problems from developing. The frequency of these varies per individual, according to their needs, some have a treatment once a month, others every quarter or 6 months.
