The Bowen Technique

A gentle therapy applied to areas of the body using thumbs or fore-fingers.

The Bowen move is a light, rolling-type move using the thumbs or forefingers and is designed to stimulate nerve pathways encouraging a ‘conversation’ to take place between different nervous systems of the body.

Between each set of moves, the therapist leaves the room to allow the communication process to take place. 

The move does not slide or flick over the surface of the skin but uses the slack in the overlying skin to move over the underlying tissue, so each move covers a small area, defined by how far an individual’s skin can move over a targeted area.

Bowen is a whole body approach to treatment. Your area of pain might not necessarily be the problem!

I feel fortunate to have grown up in a household of Bowen – I watched my dad fix ankles, shoulders, and necks at any opportunity after observing an issue with someone’s walk, posture or their ever so slight wince when turning their heads.


When I was fourteen and had my first migraine, I retreated into my dad’s office by the fire and was lucky enough to be given treatment immediately – I was back up and heading to my piano lesson less than 2 hours later. Not even pain killers have been that effective since. I had little fear because my dad could fix me!

Now as a qualified practitioner, I can't wait to bring that to you. Whatever you've been experiencing, Bowen could help. What have you got to lose?
