Bowen Therapy in London
Bowen Therapy in London
Have you ever jumped out of your skin at the sound of a car alarm? Or dramatically started waving your arms when a wasp flew too close to your ear? Well, you have your nervous system to thank. Our nervous system is always primed and ready for action and responds to anything it perceives as threatening or dangerous.
While this ability to respond to external stimuli can keep us safe, far too often, our bodies are responding to everyday occurrences that don’t require a reaction. The result? Our bodies are in a constant state of overdrive — negatively affecting our nervous system and leaving us worn down and burnt out.
Bowen therapy is a form of holistic treatment designed to give your body, mind, and nervous system a break from this constant stimulation. Using thumbs and fingers in a unique rolling technique, Bowen therapists help to stimulate and ease the nerve pathways to create a deeper synergy between the nervous system and the body. Whether you suffer from muscular-skeletal conditions, low immunity, poor circulation or chronic stress, the gentle, calming effects of Bowen therapy is just the ticket.

What to Expect From Bowen Therapy?
As with almost all holistic therapies, your Bowen therapy will begin with an initial consultation. The consultation is an integral step of the treatment as allows your therapist to find out more about you, your lifestyle, your medical history — and your needs and goals for the sessions. The therapist will use this information to create your personalised treatment to target your problem areas and issues.
The therapy itself is incredibly gentle and nurturing and doesn’t require too much planning — although it is advised to drink plenty of water before a session, to hydrate your cells and tissues. The therapy takes place on a table or bed and involves a series of rolling moves across the muscles, ligaments and tendons. The therapist may allow intervals of massage and rest to allow the body time to respond to the therapy.
Once your treatment is over, you will be given several minutes of rest and advised to drink more water. You may also experience a few emotional and physical changes, but you will have the opportunity to discuss this in a review with your therapist.
