Bowen Technique

Bowtech allows the body to reset and heal itself.  A Bowen treatment consists of a series of gentle moves on the skin (or through light clothing).  A session usually lasts from half an hour to an hour and frequently results in a deep sense of overall relaxation, allowing the body to recharge and balance itself.

There are many theories as to how Bowtech works, but none completely explain its holistic effect and often outstanding results.  It does not impose a particular approach on the client.  Instead, it encourages a gentle response which empowers the body's own resources to heal itself.  Bowen moves are a study in delicacy, being light, gentle and very precise. The Bowen Technique is not necessarily a 'long-term' treatment programme.  Most clients find that a small number of treatments are adequate even for long-standing complaints.

The Bowen Technique is considered safe to use on anyone, from newborn babies to the elderly. Some of the wide range of conditions that may respond well to Bowen are;

  • Sports injuries
  • Stress & Tension symptoms
  • Back pain and Sciatica
  • RSI & Tennis Elbow
  • Neck & Shoulder problems
  • Knee & Ankle problems
  • Respiratory conditions & Hay fever
  • Menstrual Irregularities
  • Migraines & Headaches
  • Chronic viral fatigue syndrome & M.E.
  • Pregnancy & Childhood disorders

Karen uses this approach of Holistic Therapy to help the Horse owner or rider to put their own body back into balance so that they can have the optimum effect for their horse. It has been consistently noted that frequently the horse will develop stiffness or soreness in his own body that mirrors that of his rider or handlers body imbalances. When these are addressed in the handler or rider this alone is sometimes all that is required to improve the horse's way of going. For a completely Holistic approach to the horse and owner relationship, it is sensible to treat both.
