The Bowen Technique is a complementary therapy that works over muscle, ligament, tendon, fascia, nerves and skeleton to realign and balance the body. Bowen practitioners treat the body as a whole or can target a specific problem. The Bowen Technique has an excellent track record in offering significant relief from many conditions.
It’s a gentle therapy, allowing the body to have time to respond to the work and re-orient to the memory of a previously healthy state. A Bowen treatment will enhance and complement other medical treatment and conditions other than that being treated are often resolved, whether structural, physiological or emotional.
Its effects go on working for days following treatment and can be long lasting. The moves may be given through light clothing or on the skin and can assist recovery from many conditions from traumatic injury to chronic illness. It is considered suitable for everyone from pregnant women to new-born babies, the frail and the elderly.
A session frequently results in a deep sense of relaxation helping the body to recharge and balance itself.

Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment.
A counsellor is trained to listen with empathy (by putting themselves in your shoes). They can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings that you have.
Sometimes, the term ‘counselling’ is used to refer to talking therapies in general, but counselling is also a specific type of therapy in its own right.
Other psychological therapies include psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and relationship therapy (which could be between members of a family, a couple or work colleagues).
