Bowen Benefits

The Bowen Technique is holistic. We work according to the principle of natropathic medicine: 'That the body be treated as a whole, without referral to a named disease'.


A Bowen treatment aims to balance the body.


Bowen has been reported to be very effective in the treatment of a wide range of symptoms, including:



  • Back and neck pain
  • Whiplash
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Knee Problems
  • Repetitive Strain Injuries
  • Tennis elbow, Golfer's elbow
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Chronic pain
  • Hormonal and Fertility Problems
  • Digestive Problems, IBS, constipation
  • Sports injuries
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Ante and Postnatal musculoskeletal problems
  • Migraines
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Eczema and hayfever
  • Asthma


During pregnancy the body is undergoing constant change and adaptation, which can sometimes lead to various joint and muscle pains e.g. Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD), Low Back Pain, Sciatic Pain and also high blood pressure. 


Bowen can help alleviate these problems by keeping the pelvis aligned and addressing any muscular imbalance, as well as promoting deep relaxation to aid both physical and emotional healing by balancing the Autonomic Nervous System.



Children & Babies

Children and babies respond very well to the gentle touch of Bowen. Many find it very relaxing and even enjoyable! All treatments are carried out with the parent or guardian present and whilst the child is lying down, sitting on a lap or playing. 


Common problems addressed are:


Bed wetting





Sleep disturbances


Glue ear


Treatments are shorter as children respond so well to even a little Bowen.
