What is Bowen Therapy?
It is a series of very gentle moves (“Bowen Moves”) made by moving thumbs or fingers across muscles, tendons or ligaments and by doing so sliding the skin over underlying structures.
The order in which these moves are made is very specific.
The Bowen Moves loosen the tissue, initiating a relaxation of the muscle and paving the way for a re-alignment of the body. They reduce nerve pressure and promote a return to better health. For more information go to “A Closer Look - F.A.Q .” (and read Why and how does Bowen Therapy work? or scroll down to The importance of water and How does Bowen Therapy create greater flexibility/mobility?)
What is it used for?
Muscle and joint problems, e.g. tennis elbow, painful shoulders, arms and hands
General or specific stiffness in the body
Restricted movement in upper or lower back, hips, legs or feet; including bunions
Exhaustion/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Glandular fever
Asthma, hay fever, sinus problems or congestion
What is a Bowen Therapy treatment like?
Bowen Therapy is suited to all age groups: the frail or elderly, middle aged and the very young. It is very gentle.
Your treatment usually lasts approximately an hour or a little more. Some treatments only require 30 minutes.
Bowen Moves may be applied through clothing, but are best given directly to the skin. You will be covered by towels at all times and kept warm. Oils are not used. For more information go to “A Closer Look - F.A.Q.” (and scroll down to What is Bowen Therapy like? and/or Does
What is Dorn Spinal Therapy?
This modality fits in very neatly with the way I apply Bowen Therapy.
Dorn Spinal Therapy is more a robust approach than Bowen Therapy
and it requires client participation. Frequently the changes can be felt immediately – sometimes even during application.
Most of the time I use Bowen Therapy. The resulting rehydration of the connective tissue appears to initiate improvement very well. However, sometimes I introduce Dorn Spinal Therapy into the treatment plan – often with very pleasing results.
Each time a client comes, we re-assess progress and decide on the day which combination to choose.
On average, my treatments are 80% Bowen Therapy.
If you want pure Bowen Therapy, just let me know!

How many treatments?
The number of treatments varies, but to address specific issues usually 2, 3 or 4 treatments are given one week apart. Bowen Therapy aims to extend the times between treatments as soon as practical and – as a rule – fresh ailments respond faster than older, “well established” or chronic ones.
