Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy is included under Wellness.

Bowen Therapy is a remedial therapy that works on the soft tissue of the body to treat musculoskeletal or related neurological problems. It is gentle and relaxing, and involves the therapist using their fingers to move over the body’s muscle, ligaments, tendons and tissue.

Bowen Therapy is a holistic healing treatment, and can help relieve pain and discomfort caused by sports injuries or other conditions. 

You might need Bowen Therapy if you...

  • Are interested in an alternative approach to healing
  • Are recovering from a sports injury
  • Suffer from body aches, pains or tension
