The Bowen Technique is a drug-free, non-invasive, hands-on remedial complementary therapy.

This technique involves a series of gentle rolling moves across muscle, ligament, tendon and other soft tissue.  The therapist uses his or her thumbs or fingers on specific areas of the body, applying gentle pressure to effect a movement of the tissue.  The process sends impulses to the brain which triggers the body's own healing and rebalancing mechanism.


Bowen technique aims to rebalance the whole body and not just the presenting symptoms.  There is evidence that each function of our bodies is connected, so pain in one area of the body may be the result of a problem elsewhere, and treating one specific area may only shift the problem somewhere else.  Hence we do not diagnose and we do not treat specific conditions.  We treat the body as a whole.

Your Treatment @ ReCoop Health


You will need to allow at least an hour for your first treatment as this will include a consultation about your medical history.  


Subsequent treatments will last around 45 minutes


Breaks in the treatment are made between each set of moves for a minimum of two minutes when the therapist will leave, or sit quietly in, the room.  These breaks are vital as they allow your body to absorb and react to the moves.  This is a unique part of the Bowen Technique so please be aware that this will happen and is completely normal.
