What is the Bowen Technique Benefits of Bowen Therapy About the Practitioner Origins of Bowen How it has benefited others Appointments & How to find us
Back & neck pain


Booking a Bowen Technique treatment, for the first time I recommend that you allow 60-90 minutes. This will provide time for assessment and documentation of any problems.  Please plan time in your diary to attend a further two treatment sessions, approximately one week apart. This allows me to assess your initial response to the technique and follow up the first treatment accordingly.  If further appointments are indicated they can be arranged at the second treatment.

Please do not book an appointment for ANY OTHER physical therapy such as reflexology, physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic, massage, acupuncture etc with 7 days prior to your Bowen treatment and for up to 7 days after you have finished your Bowen Technique treatments.  This is to ensure that the body is not overloaded with information or given differing therapeutic information to deal with at the same time.  It is advisable that you bath or shower prior your treatment, as it is not advisable to have hot baths or showers after treatment, although a cool shower or bath is acceptable.

Also all treatments can be given through light clothing and you will be covered by towels during the treatment sessions.  Please be aware some treatments are difficult to apply through thick materials such as jumpers or jeans. Due to this you may be asked to remove such items - but you will NEVER be asked to remove items of underwear.

Children: any child being treated under the age of 16 must have a responsible adult present with them at all times.

Medication: please bring a list of any medications you are currently taking.**  NEVER STOP or alter any medications without consulting your doctor first.
