Bowen Therapy

Bowen therapy is a gentle and effective treatment that can help with many issues from back pain to digestion problems.

Bowen Therapy is a series of gentle muscle stretch movements over muscles, tendons, ligaments & nerves stimulating the autonomic nervous system to reset for optimal body function allowing:

  • Healing
  • Muscle release and reduced pain
  • Improved digestion
  • Hormone rebalance
  • Detoxification,
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Increased Circulation
  • Deep relaxation
  • Fascial rehydration releasing movement restriction & helping muscle coordination
  • Postural realignment
  • Rebalancing the body back into harmonious balance

While it’s often used to address physical injury, pain or emotional issues it can also be used to maintain overall wellbeing and quite simply relax.

Throughout treatment regular pauses allow your body to respond and benefit from each move.

Bowen treatment is gentle, very relaxing & comfortable taking between 15 and 60 minutes. It is a perfect way to return your body to the best it can be so you can get on with enjoying life.

Other forms of manipulative therapy up to 4 days before or 7 days after aren’t advised to give you the best Bowen results.

Could Bowen Therapy help me?

Most likely yes if pain, stress & limited movement is disrupting your lifestyle with significant relief often following the first visit and typically complete resolution with a few visits.

With its gentle non-manipulative nature, Bowen therapy offers effective relief to people of all ages and stages of life, even newborn babies, pregnant women, the elderly or unwell.

Bowen for pregnancy

If you’re planning pregnancy Bowen therapy can be very helpful in balancing your body physically and hormonally getting your body ready for pregnancy.

I can also perform specific Bowen procedures that particularly target your hormones to be in the best possible position to achieve pregnancy if it’s taking a long time or you are considering IVF or similar procedures.

Bowen can be blissful relief making you more comfortable during pregnancy for pregnancy related pain, morning sickness, reflux, hand and feet swelling, sciatica.

Having Bowen throughout your pregnancy may help prevent aches and pains and also support your body & muscles to relax and prepare for birth

Many mums also find it’s just a great way to gently relax and take time out before the birth even if they have no issues.

Because Bowen is so beneficial for pregnant mums and I love nurturing and supporting nurturing you through this time I have Belly Pillows that allow you to get the most from your Bowen treatment while feeling super comfortable at the same time.

Bowen for children

I really enjoy working on children, I keep it fun for them and find they quickly love coming for Bowen too. Children usually respond readily to Bowen with parents often reporting their child is calmer and more focused at school.

Bowen seems to be particularly helpful for children with diagnosis of ADD and Autistic spectrum including Asperger’s.

Bowen has given children with persistent bedwetting the freedom to finally go on sleepovers, school camps and travel overseas over a range of ages

Bowen therapy often assists children with:

  • Sinus and jaw problems
  • Anxiety
  • Bedwetting
  • Growing pains
  • Asthma
  • Constipation
  • Sleep difficulty
  • Emotional trauma
  • Ear congestion
  • Sports related injury or pain

Bowen for babies

Bowen therapy is a safe gentle healing option with a calming effect on babies transition from womb to world

Bowen is often very helpful for colic, reflux & constipation

It’s important to address a baby’s preference to turn or tilt head to one side with Bowen quite helpful for this in their development and breastfeeding.

Baby Bowen gently assists baby wellbeing & recovery post-birth by helping realign bones, muscles and nerves of the spine, jaw, neck and head.

Sometimes muscle tension from life in utero or the way baby is born can affect neck movement, head shape, breastfeeding latch, weight gain, or contribute to fussy or colicky babies.

If your baby was born by Caesarean, instrument assisted birth, a fast labour or long labour he will benefit greatly from Bowen in adjusting to life after birth.

Bowen therapy as a bodywork therapy is very helpful & recommended before surgical release if you suspect or have a tongue tie diagnosis for your baby. In my role as lactation consultant I highly suggest booking lactation consult to assess and assist with breastfeeding prior to considering surgical intervention for suspected tongue tie or latch difficulties.

You may find it helps improve breastfeeding to the point where surgery may be avoided but I certainly refer and help you access if it seems necessary in spite of working together.

Client love

Sue, you were such a big help with both the kids in those early hazy days of breastfeeding, and I recommend you to anyone who's having trouble establishing breastfeeding or who is planning to breastfeed. Heidi, Dom, Tim and I all say a big thanks to you!

I'm on top of the world now.. you made such a difference!! After Bowen it was like I made leaps and bounds each day. What would we do without it?? Can't thank you enough!

I found the early days of breastfeeding a really difficult, painful and anxious time. With Sue’s support and guidance it became a lot easier and gave me the confidence in my milk supply & myself to continue and as a new mum having that support was so important and it made me feel relieved and very grateful.

Sue was a godsend during my pregnancy. I suffered from severe HG (Hyperemesis gravidarum) and migraines right up until 20 weeks. I was in hospital almost daily getting needles to help both with no relief when I booked in with sue. Within 24 hours of my first appointment my migraines were gone and I went from spewing 10-15 times a day to having no symptoms of nausea for the rest of my pregnancy. Without Sues help it would have been an awful 9 months. I’d be lost without her!

6 months after breaking my upper humerus and a grade 1 fracture of my ac joint in my shoulder I only had about 10-20% mobility and was stiff and in pain and regular physio was not seeing any improvements. Within 3 weekly visits of Bowen my movement had substantially improved to 60-70% and the pain was relieved. Now it’s 100% and totally fine.
