About your treatment

 

The first Bowen treatment lasts approximately an hour, during which a detailed medical history is taken.

Further treatment generally lasts between 45 minutes and one hour.

Generally 3 treatments are recommended, which is usually sufficient assess effectiveness of Bowen. Sometimes fewer or occasionally more are required, depending on your personal requirements.

Further treatments take place 5 - 10 days after initial treatment.

Generally treatments take place on a therapy couch, although treatment can be given effectively with the client sitting in a chair.

Clients are advised to wear light, comfortable clothing.

Aftercare advice and an exercise plan, when appropriate, is given at the end of each session.

To get the best from Bowen treatment clients are advised to avoid extreme temperatures such as hot baths, saunas and ice baths.

It is also recommended that other hands on or healing therapies are not applied
7 days before or after a Bowen treatment as these may interfere with the healing process.
