Bowen Technique

How the Bowen Technique Works

The most exciting aspect of the Bowen technique seems to be the way in which it stimulates the nervous system and subsequently energises the brain. This seems to lead to the re-establishing of the bodies own healing mechanisms that have either failed or become lazy, leading to chronic conditions. After only a few treatments conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Polymyalgia, ME and Chronic Fatigue show remarkable improvements. Asthma, digestive disorders and other related conditions such as IBS and Diverticulitis also respond well.

Nickatie has a vast knowledge and experience when it comes to treating people. Through her work at the hospice she has seen the benefits that Bowen can offer to terminally ill clients and their families as well as how Bowen can help with many aches, pains and illnesses.

Helping everyday people… 

Six years ago I had given up all hope with the medical professionals and their solutions for symptoms which were debilitating and hindering everyday life and then I discovered Bowen. Being a nurse, alternative therapies weren’t at the forefront of my mind, but I was willing to give anything a go. After my first treatment I saw results and still get blown away by the power Bowen has.

Nickatie took time to listen to my health journey to date and explained benefits Bowen could help with and continues to do so even though I’ve seen her previously. Nickatie is prompt and accommodating when you need to have a treatment and suggests if you need regular sessions to solve the issue. Nickatie provides a relaxing environment when you receive your treatment and enquires about your progress after too.

I have and will continue to recommend Bowen to everyone. I truly believe I wouldn’t have the life I have now if Nickatie hadn’t introduced me to Bowen.

Supporting the growing body

Bowen can help and support many issues that young people develop both physical and emotional.

What a treatment involves.

The technique itself comprises of gentle moves carried out with the thumbs and forefingers on muscles, ligaments and the fascia tissue throughout the body. This stimulation produces profound relaxation and balance in the muscular structure of the body allowing the skeleton to realign where necessary. It promotes a healthy blood circulation and also stimulates the lymphatic system. A general detoxification of the body also takes place after a treatment, which has been monitored through the taking of blood samples. Most people who have the treatment note a general balancing within the body and a subsequent energised feeling.
