What is the Bowen Technique?
The treatment consists of a series of gentle rolling moves over muscles, tendons and other soft tissue. The therapist uses his or her fingers and thumbs on specific areas of the body, applying gentle pressure to effect a movement of the tissue, causing a ripple effect of energy.
Why does the therapist go out of the room?
Breaks are taken between each series of moves to allow the body to absorb the instruction given and start the healing process, offering the body the opportunity to restore structural integrity. The breaks are very important to the process, and the therapist will usually leave the room to allow the client to rest quietly in total relaxation.(Unless treating a child or elderly person where the therapist remains in the room).
Do I have to undress?
It is a totally non invasive technique and can be performed through light clothing.
