So you may have been been told by a friend to check out Bowen Therapy. But your friend was struggling to explain – What is Bowen Therapy? & What this amazing modality can do for you?
What is Bowen Therapy? The Gentle Healing Technique Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowen Therapy) is a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy that encourages the body to right itself. This technique involves a gentle roll over the muscle. By using a set system of these small moves from the base of the neck to the tips of the toes, the therapist stimulates the body’s innate healing system to realign and re-balance.

Benjamin Setter | Bowen Therapy Specialist
Q. How come the Bowen Therapy stopped after I had a massage? A. Because Bowen technique is unique in its ability to not combine with other therapies for it was clear that the work became less effective or ceased to function at all.
Q. Why do you not use a Physiotherapy tens machine, or Chiropractic bone cracking with Bowen Therapy? A. Bowen Therapy is a technique unto itself, it requires no tens machine and has know thrust manipulation.
Q. How long between Bowen Therapy Treatments? A. Bowen Therapy treatments are generally once every four to seven days, depending on the seriousness of the problem.

This is honestly the best thing I’ve done for my body. After years of massages and doctors giving me pain killers to deal with my back pain (including tramadol!) I FINALLY feel like I can move and sleep properly! That’s only after three sessions! Benjamin explains everything to you, from how you got into a painful state and how your body is reacting to how every step of treatment is going to improve your condition. I can not express how thankful and grateful I am that I’m FINALLY on the mend… I’ll recommend Benjamin to family friends… anyone. I won’t go anywhere else from now on.
To whom it may concern, after a number of years and different types of treatment, on my back, I finally tried Bowen Therapy at Setter’s in 1994. What a difference it made! Thanks to the Setter’s expertise I can again move easily and do the things I love. Now , 20 years later, when I start having trouble sleeping because of pain, I take myself off to see the Setter’s.
I went to see Benjamin because I was 10 days overdue with my first baby and wanted to avoid induction. I had been told bowen therapy could help. I have also had back pain for over 10 years, which I have tried everything from yoga to acupuncture to fix. Not only did I go into labour 8 hours after my treatment, my back pain has completely disappeared for the first time. Have already referred two friends since my visit.
I like going to Setters Health Centre. I had a knee replacement, they were so good to me and helped me gain strength in my muscles again. I had another knee replacement only this time the op went wrong. So back to Setter’s I go…Because they were so good to me this time, for I had drop foot again. They looked after me and gave me all the encouragement I needed. I recommend them because they are so good at what they do. I can now walk with ease.
I went to Setters Health Centre a few weeks ago in a world of back pain. Barely mobile. The treatment from Benjamin is non invasive, effective and relaxing. Benjamin is entertaining which really helps when you are in pain and depressed with it all. He truly has healing powers in his hands. I cannot thank him enough. Many many thanks also to Cindy, Benjamin’s lovely and delightful wife. They truly offer an alternative life healing service that is really effective and wonderfully delivered. I am now mobile again, and leading my usual fast and mobile life, I cannot thank them enough. If you have any kind of pain please see these people. They really care.
Due to my employment I have suffered back and shoulder injuries throughout my career. Bowen Therapy has not only reduced discomfort but also the cause of these injuries. As a result I have found Bowen the solution that has allowed me to continue my employment in an industry renown for early retirement and permanent back injuries. Benjamin has kept me on my feet for more than ten years and I must credit Setters Health Centre with their ongoing support and time to keep my body together in a stressful work environment. I can not thank them enough for their efforts, nor can I recommend them more highly. They have made the pain go away.
I have lived with Chronic pain now for over 6 years due to a work place accident where I broke my neck in 2 places and injured my lower back. I have tried lots of different things to ease the pain like increasing my medication,physio every week, acupuncture and chiro which I got slight relief. My partner suggested for me to try Bowen Therapy which I finally succumb to as I am the biggest sceptic. Eventually I thought why not Give it a try I have tried everything else to get pain relief and spent thousands in the process, what did I have to loose. I was amazed, after only a few sessions with Ben and Cindy I was starting to get some relief from pain, it was weird they hardly seemed to touch me but wow the relief is unreal, I could not believe I was getting relief from pain, over the next 2 weeks I was seeing Ben twice a week and was getting better and better, I have even forgot to take my medication on a number of occasions, I cannot thank them enough, they have given me my life back. I have now seen Ben and Cindy on 12 occasions and I feel great. I am even decreasing my pain medication which I never thought would ever happen. I would recommend Bowen Therapy to anyone who is suffering minor pain to Chronic Pain. Give it a go phone Ben or Cindy and get them to do there magic on you.
I have been suffering from a frozen shoulder, very painful and very
little movement in my arm. Doctors suggested an operation or Cortisone
injection. Another suggestion was Physiotherapy which meant slow
treatment for up to 24 months. I contacted Setter"s Health Centre and
spoke to Benjamin. Now within 12 weeks of therapy visits, my shoulder is
80% back to my normal movements. I am very pleased with the results and
also a firm believer of Bowen Therapy. Thank you Benjamin, I totally recommend Setter's Health Centre.
Came to Setter’s, age 90 years… Lol
Severe pain down right side leg. Unable to walk without walking aid. Unable to lay on back & right side. Now aged 91 years old… Lol Can walk without walking aide. Have no pain in right leg or back. Now able to lay on my back without pain.Thanks to the treatment from Ben Setter. Still getting treatment every three weeks at present.
Mrs E.A. King
September 1993 I was diagnosed with Progressive MS (Multiple Sclerosis)
Advised by Doctor of possible future associated failures with different parts of my body. One of these being loss of mobility due to leg failure.
July 1997 I was put off work as Disabled. Apart from several other health issues, my legs did not function very well and included great pain.
I first went to Setters Health Centre to see if Bowen Therapy might help me. I was in a wheel chair at this stage but with the aid of crutches and support from my wife I was able to shuffle into the surgery. After about an hour of treatment I was able to walk correctly and walk out of the surgery unassisted. I had weekly treatments for about 2 years and found that I could walk OK with the aid of crutches. 19 years later I am still able to walk with the aid of crutches mainly because of very bad balance. A problem that cannot be cured. MY DOCTOR CAN NOT UNDERSTAND HOW I CAN STILL WALK. I AM CONVINCED THAT IT WAS THE BOWEN THERAPY THAT SAVED ME FROM LIFE IN A WHEEL CHAIR.
It is not just that Benjamin fixed my back and shoulder quickly …it is that his advice on simple exercises and vitamins mean that I now recover much faster from a weekend of active sport.
