For young and old alike a typical session will take about 1 hour.
The therapist will spend the first 20 minutes or so doing a full consultation before the client will be asked to lie down on a couch.
The Bowen procedures can, if required, be performed through light clothing; it involves a series of gentle moves over soft tissue. No heavy pressure is applied and there is no hard adjustment, manipulation or force used.
The therapist leaves the room after a sequence of moves to allow the body time to respond to the work. This is an important aspect to Bowen. This enhances the healing effect, giving the body time to respond to the messages Bowen is sending to the brainMost people find the treatment to be very relaxing with some drifting off to sleep.
What clothing should I wear?
Light stretchy clothing should be worn e.g. – stretchy tee shirt and tracksuit / jogger bottoms. No jeans please.
Please do not wear corsets or roll-ons, tights or trousers with lycra that are of a slippy nature – these would prevent me from getting a good move of the skin.
