Body First Bowen Therapy
The cornerstone of any therapeutic relationship is partnership. Partnership between client and therapist is critical to creating a safe and respectful space where the client can discuss and explore what is relevant to their treatment. I encourage every client to let me know what it is they need and want, at any stage of the session.
Treatment is commenced after a consultation and discussion of a plan of care. Often the first treatment is simply what is termed the Basic Relaxation Moves. This sequence of moves is very restful but also effective in allowing the fascia to begin the process of rehydrating and 'unsticking' itself. During the session there will be 'waits' of a few minutes during which I leave the body to respond to the moves already made.
The second treatment can again be the Basic Relaxation Moves with further targeted treatments for specific concerns. The reason for taking this approach is to gently introduce Bowen as the body can be easily overwhelmed by the clearing of toxins through fascial release. If this occurs the best remedy is a warm shower, bath or spa to reduce these effects.
Further sessions are discussed depending on your needs and individual response to Bowen treatment.
