The Bowen Therapy

The Bowen Therapy is a manual therapy method which applies the „less is more” rule. The Bowen technique consists of subtle movements of „rolling” the muscular and fascial structures which relax the tissues and stimulate body regeneration. Each session of movements needs a few-minute break to transfer the stimuli through the neural and fascial system; the break also serves for the patient to rest and relax.

The first notable effect of the therapy is reaching the state of deep relaxation. Often only after the first session the patient feels his physical and psychical condition have improved. Sessions take around 40 minutes and it is recommendable to repeat them every 7 days.
