What is Bowen Therapy?


  • It is a series of very gentle moves ("Bowen Moves") made by rolling the thumbs or fingers across muscles, tendons or ligaments.

  • The order in which these moves are made is very specific.

  • The Bowen Moves loosen the tissue, initiating a relaxation of the muscle (probably through rehydration), paving the way for a re-alignment of the body. They reduce nerve pressure and promote healing.  For more information go to " A Closer Look - F.A.Q ." (and scroll down to Why and how does Bowen Therapy work? or The importance of water  and How does Bowen Therapy create greater flexibility/mobility?)

  • Bowen Therapy is the preferred method of "Body Maintenance" for many of my clients. For more information go to " A Closer Look - F.A.Q ." (and scroll down to Can I use Bowen Therapy for Maintenance? and/or What is Lymphatic Drainage?)



What is it used for?


Muscle and joint problems, e.g. tennis elbow, painful shoulders, arms and hands

General or specific stiffness in the body

Restricted movement in upper or lower back, hips, legs or feet; bunions

Exhaustion/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Glandular fever

Lymphatic Drainage

Asthma, hay fever, sinus problems or congestion




What is a Bowen Therapy treatment like?


Bowen Therapy is suited to all age groups: the frail or elderly, middle aged and the very young. It is very gentle.

Your treatment usually lasts approximately an hour or a little more. Some treatments only require 30 minutes.

Bowen Moves may be applied through clothing, but are best given directly to the skin. You will be covered by towels at all times and kept warm. Oils are not used. For more information go to " A Closer Look - F.A.Q ." (and scroll down to What is Bowen Therapy like? and/or Does it hurt?)



What are Dorn Spinal Therapy and Emmett Technique?


These two therapy forms fit in very nicely with the way I use Bowen Therapy


Emmett Technique is sometimes very much like Bowen Therapy and yet sometimes it is so subtle, that you almost can't tell a move has been made. In those instances, it appears to me to work energetically. However, some spectacular changes can occur. 


Dorn Spinal Therapy, on the other hand, is more robust and it requires client participation. Frequently, the changes can be felt immediately – sometimes even during application. 


I use Bowen Therapy most of the time. The resulting rehydration of the connective tissue appears to initiate improvement very well. However, sometimes I introduce Dorn Spinal Therapy or Emmett Technique into the treatment plan – often with very pleasing results.

Each time a client comes, we re-assess progress and decide on the day, which combination to choose.


On average, my treatments are 80% Bowen Therapy. If you want pure Bowen Therapy, just let me know!

For more information go to " A Closer Look - F.A.Q ." (and scroll down to What about "Dorn" and "Emmett"?)



How many treatments?


The number of treatments varies, but to address specific issues usually 2, 3 or 4 treatments are given one week apart. Bowen Therapy aims to extend the times between treatments as soon as practical and – as a rule – fresh ailments respond faster than older, "well established" or chronic ones.
