The Technique

Back pain helped by Bowen Technique

Helping the whole body to re-align and re-balance structurally (without skeletal manipulation), Bowen Technique is a natural therapy helping clients to resolve pain and promote natural repair and healing on many levels.

Bowen can be given through light clothing helping to promote natural repair. It endeavours to assist the body’s natural healing mechanism, working with the autonomic nervous system to help encourage changes at a physical level.

Bowen Technique is suitable for all ages


What a treatment Involves

The therapist uses rolling moves (mostly with fingers or thumbs) just over specific muscles, tendons and ligaments. Between each set of moves the therapist gives the client a break, allowing their body to rest, relax further and take on board what’s happening. This helps initiate the healing process and restore balance.

Unlike many other forms of hands-on therapies, the practitioner performs these non-invasive moves with a light but firm touch, using only the amount of pressure that is appropriate for each individual.

Duration of Treatments

The first consultation will be slightly longer than subsequent treatments, up to 1¼ hours, so that Kate can establish a comprehensive picture of the client's overall health. Details of lifestyle, sleeping pattern and medical history will be discussed before giving an initial treatment. Subsequent treatments will be approximately 1 hour.

The Cost

Adults – £50

Children (up to 17 years) - £40

Babies (0-18 months) - £20

I do understand that sometimes people can find themselves in a difficult situation financially and it is more important to get the needed healing; if this applies to you then please give me a call to discuss.

Please Note: Only cash or cheque is accepted for payment.

As a qualified homeopath, I sometimes see that a homeopathic remedy would help alongside the Bowen Technique. If the client is interested, I normally charge £15 extra for this.
