Bowen Technique – £55.00

Bowen therapy is a soft tissue remedial therapy that involves the therapist using fingers or thumbs to move over muscle, ligament, tendon and fascia in various parts of the body. This therapy can be effective to help relieve everyday stresses and revitalise the whole person.Each Bowen therapy session varies according to the particular problems of the client. By focusing on the lower and mid back and legs, the upper back, shoulders and the neck, a sense of wellbeing can be achieved, helping relaxation, aiding sleep – helping to remove everyday stress and anxiety that can make us feel under-par or prevent us functioning at our optimum.
Common pregnancy pains the mother may experience are:

Aching legs
Nausea / Dizziness
Decreased energy levels

As the foetus grows the pelvis and spine are particularly vulnerable. The pelvis becomes softer in preparation for birth and can cause stress on the lower back and pelvis.

The birth process itself can cause lower back and pelvic pain. Post natally whilst the mother is nursing, feeding and caring for the baby this can also put additional strain on the lower back. Almost all the Bowen work can be performed on an expectant mum up until labour begins. Directly after birth there are certain moves that can help the body become calm and help the body to return to it’s pre pregnancy state.

I am 33 weeks pregnant and for the last 2 weeks have been in agony with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in my arms and hand. It was so bad I was waking up during the night in tears and due to the pregnancy there was nothing I could take. Since having Bowen with Julie I’ve had no pain at all in my back and arms and the carpal tunnel symptoms have improved dramatically. Thank you so much for making me comfortable again.

Thank you very much, really pleased with how well we were treated by a lovely lady. And so happy with the results our baby doesn’t seem to be struggling anymore with her colic symptoms. Highly recommended 5*
