An Introduction to Bowen Therapy: A Workshop with Pamela Dewener
At this workshop, you can find out about Bowen Therapy. Pamela will tell you about the technique’s history, and her own personal story about how she came to be a Bowen therapist. She’ll explain the therapy’s benefits, what sort of conditions it can help, and how it works. She’ll also tell you what to expect in a session. There may also be a demonstration of some of the techniques she uses so you can see for yourself how gentle it is. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions too. This workshop is a great way to find out if Bowen Therapy might be suitable for you, or your child or young person.
What is Bowen Therapy?
Bowen Therapy is a gentle, relaxing, non-intrusive remedial therapy which allows the body to reset and heal itself. A treatment consists of a series of gentle moves which aim to stimulate the muscles, soft tissues and energy within the body. There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used or needed.
The treatment promotes healing, pain relief and recovery of energy – enabling the body to realign itself. Bowen therapy can also help to reduce stress and digestive problems, and improve sleep, which will in turn reduce the symptoms of other ailments.
Bowen is performed through light clothing and the non-intrusive nature of the moves makes it better tolerated by those who are not keen on “hands on” treatments.
Parents at The Toby Henderson Trust have already noticed the calming effect Bowen has on their children who have autism. If parents have Bowen treatments themselves, they will benefit from the way in which it can reduce their own stress as well as heal injuries and strains. It is always easier to be patient and caring when you are not in pain!
Pamela offers Bowen treatment at Toby House every week. To find out more, see our Bowen Therapy post.
