Welcome to Irene Irving Therapies Bowen Therapy

Thank you for visiting my website.

So What is Bowen?

The Bowen Technique is a remedial, hands-on therapy that uses very gentle pressure to treat the whole body, not just the symptoms.   It was developed  in Australia by Thomas Ambrose Bowen (1916-1982).  Tom continued to develop Bowen throughout his life and treated thousands of people right up till his death in 1982.  Click on the link below to see a short video about Bowen.

What can Bowen help with?

The following are examples of issues Bowen can help with:

Musculoskeletal issues – Back, neck, knee, ankle pain, sciatica, whiplash, arthritis

Chronic conditions – For example fibromyalgia or rheumatoid arthritis.

Injury prevention – injury prevention in people who exercise regularly

Baby Colic – Bowen has been shown to help with baby colic

Children – growing pains, bedwetting, anger, sleep issues

Pregnancy –  Bowen can help with lower back pain and general discomfort

Stress- Bowen can help with stress and anxiety

Digestive issues – IBS, reflux, indigestion etc.

What happens During the Treatment?

I use my thumbs and fingers on specific points of the body  to perform the rolling-type moves which stimulate the body’s soft tissue.  I don’t use any manipulation or adjustment and no force is used.  During the treatment I leave the room for a few minutes to allow your body to respond to the moves. Bowen prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself.

PLEASE NOTE: The Bowen Technique is not intended as a substitute for medical advice or treatment. If in doubt please consult your own Doctor.

Is Bowen safe?

Bowen Therapy has no contra indications and can be used for babies, children and adults of any age.   There is no manipulation of hard tissue and no force applied.

Treatment can be performed directly on the skin or through light clothing if you prefer  through lose clothing.  A t-shirt and loose trousers or shorts (not jeans) are ideal. If you are wearing bulky or heavy items of clothing such as a thick jumper, you will be asked to remove these before the treatment can begin.

 How many sessions do I need?

Initial treatments are best scheduled about a week apart with a course of 3 usually recommended, although some issues resolve after only one session.  Many  of my regular clients book in for ‘maintenance’ treatments to keep their body functioning at its best, particularly clients who regularly exercise as helps keep them injury free.

 How much does it cost?

A single Bowen session costs £40 and last approximately 1 hour.  For babies and children the fee is  £20.  I  also currently offer a package of three sessions for £100 if booked and paid in advance.  I accept cash,card or bank transfer
