The Bowen Technique
Named after its Australian creator, Tom Bowen, the Bowen technique arrived in the UK in the early ‘90’s. Bowen is safe for anyone and can help treat a huge range of conditions – physical, emotional or psychological. It is generally best known as a means of helping prevent or relieve soft tissue tension which contributes to, or creates, injury or pain.
Bowen can be perceived as gentle, but the effects can be profound and it is increasingly being recognised as an effective treatment for many different ailments.
What is it used to treat?
Usually performed through light clothing, a treatment is often on the whole body as shoulder pain can stem from a problem in the pelvis or even ankle! Each treatment lasts for a maximum of 60 minutes, including a consultation, and it’s generally recommended that at least 3 treatments should be taken, especially as most of us have a problem for a long time before we do anything about it.
Who is Bowen suitable for?
Bowen is suitable for all ages, shapes and sizes and is often accompanied by recommendations about after-care and exercises to do to help after each treatment.
In addition to studying Bowen with the European College of Bowen Studies, Helen is a Yoga teacher (British Wheel of Yoga Diploma Teacher – a 500 hour national occupational standard qualification), a Pilates Teacher (The Pilates Institute London) and a member of the Register of Exercise Professionals.
Passionate about the body, particularly the spine, Helen combines Bowen with 10 years’ experience of teaching Yoga and Pilates to all ages, shapes, sizes, abilities and injuries. When there is discomfort or pain of any kind we often stop doing the things we love – Bowen, as with Yoga and Pilates, doesn’t offer a cure but all of them can help alleviate discomfort or pain, meaning we can go back to living life more fully.
Monday afternoons and Friday mornings at Equilibrium Yoga and Well-being Centre Peterborough, other times and days available by request.
