Usually a treatment session lasts about 45mins although with initial consultation can take up to an hour, giving time for therapist and client to discuss the nature of the problem.
Bowen Therapy can be given through light clothing but it is better for the therapist if performed on the skin. Shorts and t-shirts work really well. Jeans or tight fitting leggins that can slip are not suitable. You will be covered by towels or a fleece at all times to keep you warm.
As a Bowen Therapist we do not make a diagnosis and if we feel it necessary we will refer the client to their GP.
An understanding of the problems as they present on the day and how the ailments affects them, medical history and physical assessments, will form the basis of the treatment.
Kathy Hodge Bowen offers a fully holistic approach to all problems presented and the treatment is complementary to mainstream medical treatment.
The treatment is based on sound anatomy and physiology knowledge and keeping up to date through CPD’s and the latest research is a priority.
- Medical history is taken on your first session, a list of current medication is needed.
- Wear shorts and t-shirt for treatment or wear lose fitting clothing
- A course of 3 treatments over a period of 3-4weeks are normally recommended
- We ask that you don’t have any other bodywork whilst on a course of Bowen. This can be discussed at the appointment.
