Bowen Technique

Anything was worth a try to alleviate the symptoms of stress I was experiencing. For the first time in weeks I have no pain in my head, neck and shoulders following anly one Bowen session. Pam made me feel comfortable and relaxed and the results have been amazing……… many thanks. Wendy, Basingstoke.

Hi Pam,

I want to tell you that I had the best nights sleep last night in years and years after the Bowen. I’d turned off the alarm clock, and woke up 3hours later!! Yesterday evening I was so relaxed and sleepy, unusual for me, I couldn’t keep,awake to read my book, which I wanted to do!! I have had trouble sleeping for years, so that I don’t even expect a good nights sleep these days



This simple but powerful therapy was founded in Australia by the late Tom Bowen, who discovered that making small and gentle movements over certain muscles and tissue generated an integrated healing response.

It is a holistic, gentle, self-healing process that has deservedly achieved a reputation for great results in alleviating health problems. For further information, please follow this link.

What to Expect

  • a 15 minute consultation to identify best course of treatment
  • a series of gentle rolling moves carried out over light clothing while lying on treatment couch, music is optional
  • a feeling of calm and relaxation allowing your body to carry out its own healing over the following 7 to 10 days.

How Long?

Different moves will be carried out according to the type of problems being treated and a session will last between 40 minutes and one hour. Allow an extra 15 minutes for the consultation on the first visit.

How Many?

Usually we recommend a series of three treatments spaced 7 – 10 days apart although you may find you need only one session or perhaps more than this. It will be decided as we see how your body is reacting. We are allowing the body to undertake its own repair and must watch to see what is happening. This is a holistic form of treatment and often people find they are feeling better in themselves and able to cope better with problems.

What Does It Treat?

A wide range of problems can be treated:-

  • Muscular/skeletal disorders such as Frozen Shoulder/Lower Back Pain
  • Asthma
  • Migraine
  • Chronic Fatigue/ME
  • Sports Injuries (often leading to improved performance)
  • IBS
  • Skin complaints
  • Knee, ankle, elbow complaints


As a way of ensuring the best possible outcome you need to drink plenty of water. Avoid sitting still for more than half an hour at a time for the remaining day of treatment and take note of any changes which occur before your next appointment.
