The Bowen Technique – Fascial release
The Bowen Technique is a remedial therapy that consists of a series of moves across muscle, tendons and other soft tissue. The therapist uses fingers and thumbs on specific areas, applying gentle pressure in order to create a signal to the brain, which helps relieve tension and realign the body. There is no harsh manipulation or adjustment, just a relaxing, gentle and soft approach.
There are 2-minute breaks after a set amount of moves throughout the treatment, which allows the body time to process the previous moves, adjust, realign and reset. This is what makes the Bowen technique unique.
The Bowen Technique treats the body as a whole as sometimes pain in a specific area is caused by an imbalance elsewhere.
Bowen can be used on all age groups from infants to the elderly.

Where do I have to go for my treatment?
I am based near Cullompton and also in Silverton, near Exeter, Devon. However, I am happy to travel to you at an extra cost. All you need is space to put up a table for me to work on you.
Every Wednesday morning I am at Panache Toning Studio in Tiverton where I hire a treatment room to work from. Places are limited so be sure to ring and book your place!
How many appointments will I need?
This depends largely on the condition/s the client is presenting with. Sometimes just one treatment is enough but other times it may take more. If a client requires more than one treatment I try to see them 7-10 days after the previous treatment.
Some people like to have regular treatments as they use Bowen as a relaxation tool even if there is nothing ‘wrong’ with them. This can be anything from weekly to yearly.
What to wear to your appointment?
Clothing stays on throughout treatments so we ask that light clothing such as leggings, shorts, vest tops, thin t-shirts are worn.
