Gentle & Non-Invasive
Originating from Australia and the fastest growing natural therapy in the UK, Bowen is a versatile hands-on therapy chosen by a wide range of people for an equally wide range of conditions. NST (Neuro Structural Integration) is a more recent adaption of the original work developed by Tom Bowen. Suitable for everybody from birth to old age, it seeks to help resolve the effects of ill health, discomfort and the stresses and strains of modern life.
Bowen is often referred to as a 'remedial' therapy, ie one which people seek when they are in pain or discomfort, with acute and chronic illnesses and injuries. The most common presenting conditions include musculo-skeletal problems eg back, neck and shoulder pain/ restriction. A gentle process of releasing tension from specific points and restoring alignment also has an effect across the whole of the body, the symptoms of conditions such as digestive, urinary and respiratory disorders also frequently improving. For this reason, Bowen is regularly chosen.
It is the holistic approach: addressing the body as a whole that brings about positive change-quickly for the majority of clients. Frequently, it is effective where other therapies have not resulted in lasting relief.
