What is Bowen Therapy? Now take a breath…

Okay, so you’ve taken the time to sit down and read this. So how about trying something. Take a big long breath. Doesn’t that feel good – all that extra oxygen flooding into the system? It’s about taking a moment. Putting all today’s problems to one side. Chances are this the first big breath you’ve taken all day. And if your daily exercise extends only to walking out to the garage to get into the car, maybe it’s the first big breath you’ve taken in weeks – and it’s taking a toll. When it feels like the demands of your day have backed you into a corner, the first thing you can forget to do is breathe. So focusing on your breathing is a simple way to to calm down and get back on track.

First you’ve got to stop what you’re doing – mindful breathing needs your complete attention to focus on that one breath. So once you’ve decided to take that breath, begin a slow count to three – and just breathe right on in. Hold your breath for another count of three. Then release that breath to the count of three. Continue this cycle three times and then take notice of how different your feel. I bet you’re trying it right now.

So why not make this a regular part of your day – it will help stop that room-squeezing-in-on-you feeling. And better yet,  restart that hobby you enjoyed, try talking to friends, or sitting quietly with a book, magazine or comic. And remember…breathe.

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.

Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowen Therapy) is completely safe for the newborn baby to the frail and elderly. It is gentle, fast and an effective way to treat health concerns from sporting injuries to pain, stress and discomfort. Bowen Therapy stimulates the patient’s musculoskeletal system into realigning itself.

The beauty of Bowen Therapy is that it will not interfere and works well with all medication and/or dietary supplements and is gentle but powerful. A treatment takes about one hour.
