Is Bowen Therapy a type of massage?

No.
Although Bowen Therapy is a type of bodywork its effects on the structure and function of the human body can be much more profound.

Is it painful?

No.
Bowen therapy using very gentle motions over the skin, muscles, tendons and fascia. The level of pressure can be described as the same amount you would apply to your eyeball without feeling discomfort. Occasionally, there are some procedures that require some deeper manipulations but these will only be used to the comfort level of the patient.

Is Bowen therapy suitable for pregnancy and babies?

Yes.
Bowen Therapy is highly indicated for all trimesters of pregnancy. In addition, Bowen Therapy is useful in helping with postpartum recovery (pelvic misalignment, pubic symphysis diastasis, sciatic pain) and to also help with newborns adjust to their new environment.

Do you apply strapping?

Under some circumstances, additional strapping may be applied to give extra support to weakened joints or to facilitate the healing process. Common areas to be strapped include the knee, ankle, hammer toes and foot.

If you have a strapping applied, please continue to wear for five days and remove at the end of the fifth day. If indicated, the strapping will be reapplied on the 7th day. Many patients find the strapping gives much needed support and many request the strapping specifically as it is so comfortable. Only high quality hypoallergenic stretch tape is used that is water resistant and can be worn whilst bathing or showering.

What are the exercises?

Occasionally, you will be instructed to perform a daily Bowen exercise to reinforce your previous treatment. It is important to begin these exercises the day AFTER your Bowen treatment. These exercises are simple to do and rarely take more than 60 seconds. The most difficult aspect about these exercises is remembering to do them so I suggest setting up an alarm or marking it in your diary or calendar.
