The technique can treat many body ailments as the movements activate the body’s ability to heal itself.
The Bowen Technique can be beneficial in a wide range of situations. It can assist recovery from many conditions, from traumatic injury to chronic illness, depending upon each individual’s capacity to heal. Many clients report that the Bowen Technique is THE most relaxing modality they have ever experienced.
