What is Bowen?
A very light touch, complementary therapy where gentle rolling moves are made on specific areas of the body interspersed with breaks. The aim being to bring awareness back to specific areas and allow the body to rebalance and initiate the healing process. If nothing else it is very relaxing and puts the body and mind into a much better place
How did I get into it?
I had a disabled horse, a friend suggested Bowen Therapy for him. As he was a big softy I wanted to check out what Bowen was before subjecting him to it…. I had a treatment and thought is was very weird, the practitioner kept leaving the room! I thought it was a con paying for an hour when someone was out of the room for half of that time!!! However despite that my long term back issues got better and I felt great. When my horse had treatments it helped keep him out of pain and thus gave him better quality of life.
At that point I decided to train myself so gave up a management career to become a Bowen Therapist. Way less well paid but so much more fulfilling….
I now mostly specialise in humans and dogs.
What I like is that there can be no placebo effect with an animal. Once they understand the treatment they actually turn their body to show me where to work. Even if its not where the pain would seem to be, when I work on the area they tell me they get better…
I personally believe that given the right set of circumstances all bodies can get to a better place. I work with people from athletes to disabled people, babies and those in end of life care. How much improvement bodies get depends on where they are at that time, it is never too late to improve quality of life even if just a little.
Just in case here are a couple of examples…
A young girl age 12, was a gymnast came to me with a bad leg. Following an accident she could not move her leg, take any weight on it, and the muscles were wasting etc. She has had scans, MRI, seen neurologists and had extensive physio therapy to no avail. No one really know what to do. Out of desperation they visited me. I only ever treated this girl twice, a week apart. After the first treatment she could move her toes and foot, after the second treatment she could walk and weightbare . Fun stuff!
A dog one –
A dog collapsed and could not move its back legs. The vet told the owner to get ready to put it to sleep as the “reflexes” had even gone from the back legs. I met the owner by “accident” (if you believe in accidents – I don’t!). I treated the dog every 3 days with Bowen and a super pulsed laser (pulses 80 000 time per second, great for healing). Within 2 weeks the dog could move her legs, and could walk, albe it a bit wobbly. 2 weeks after that and the dog could walk, run and was happy. 6 months later the dog had puppies! (NOT my idea!)
The kind of thing I see in clinic are:
Any aching joints, muscles, sprains & strains
Long term pain conditions (my fav)
Stress related issues
Stiff necks and back pain
All kinds of thing really!
Im working on getting a caravan so I can take a treatment room to rural areas. So that people who either live very remotely or who cant easily drive can have a treatment in a nice mobile treatment room. That is work in progress tho as looking for a donated caravan as I offer low cost treatment to disabled and elderly people.
I really hope this is something like you had in mind. If not let me know and I will try again!--- I recently did a leaflet about the dangers of dogs pulling on leads if you want that as well. Its a pdf at the moment. I won't be offended if thats not you thing.
I had a read of your blog - its really interesting, thank you.
Anyway hope is is something like what you had in mind..
Thanks and hope you had a good taichi class today. Im hoping to join you advanced guys after Easter...

New counters have replaced the wheelbarrow, thimble, boot in the game of monopoly. The new replacement, s are tyrannosarus or t_rex for short, penguin, duck al voted by the public to be the new figures to go around the board when playing.
A family had to hide in the zoos toilet after a 2 year old cheetah called kitwana escaped it's enclosure. Keepers at Lympne reserve zoo, near Hythe, Kent coaxed kitwana back into its enclosure with some meat, the local council who issued zoo licence are investigating the cheetah, s escape.
A council in Bexley, South East London are asking business to advertise on poop scoop bags that it hands out to dog owners.
I am hoping to raise money by asking people to donate a small amount of a 1 pound coin as a little can do big things, if no success at least tried

Joe Schmidt's Irish team secured a top seeding for the 2019 World Cup draw as a try by lock Iain Henderson after 23 minutes proved the difference between the sides.
While England improved after being completely dominated in the first half, they failed to make a serious dent in the Irish defence.
England won the tournament last week with a 61-21 thrashing of Scotland, but they collected the Six Nations trophy in a downbeat mood as the third English side in 16 years to be denied a grand slam in Dublin on the final day of the tournament.
"We didn't slam it but, hey-ho, we're still the champions," said England captain Dylan Hartley. "Full credit to Ireland. They put us under unbelievable pressure."
England lost in 2001 and 2011 but hammered Ireland in a grand slam decider in the old Lansdowne Road in 2003, months before they won the World Cup.
The win also denied England a tier-one record of 19 consecutive wins just four months after Ireland prevented world champions New Zealand from reaching the same milestone with a 40-29 win in November.
The yellow submarine is currently in Punta Arenas, Chile, and is due to sail for the Southern Ocean on Friday.
Scientists will use the robot to survey cold, deep waters that help to regulate Earth's climate.
The 3.5m-long sub was given the name that a public poll had suggested - but which ministers subsequently blocked - go on the JCR's replacement.
No matter - there is still enormous interest in the humorous moniker and the autonomous vehicles that will carry it underwater.-read more

FRBs have mystified scientists ever since they burst onto the astronomical scene in 2007. Since then, large radio telescopes have captured fewer than two dozen of the enigmatic flickers, far brighter than most known objects. Now, a pair of Harvard theorists have a wild idea: planet sized beacons that would dwarf the Death Star, and maybe even Starkiller Base.
Lasting mere thousandths of a second, the radio pulses are far too bright to match what we know about other sources that emit energy in bursts, such as the spinning neutron stars known as pulsars.
"There is no known astronomical object that generates radio bursts at such a high brightness, which is tens of billions of times brighter than the known population of pulsars, for example," co-author of the paper Avi Loeb of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics told Gizmodo.-read more
- Airway: You need to make sure the airway is open before you check his breathing. To do this, tilt back his head and lift up his chin. If you see an object obstructing the airway, remove it.
- Breathing: Lean in closely to listen for breathing. Look to see if his chest is rising and falling.
- Circulation: Feel for a pulse. Signs of circulatory issues include color changes, sweating, and a lower level of consciousness.-read more it may help
It shows the first Australians spread rapidly before largely spending continuous time in distinct areas.
The research is an important step in learning more about ancestry prior to European settlement, the authors said.
It again confirmed that Aboriginal Australians descended from a single population that arrived 50,000 years ago from New Guinea, when it was joined to Australia.
Genetic mapThe research, published in the journal Nature, analysed 111 hair samples taken by anthropologists from across Australia in the early 20th Century.
The DNA allowed researchers to trace maternal ancestry through unique genetic material.
"What we've found is that we can see right the way back to the first colonisation of Australia by Aboriginal people," said lead author Prof Alan Cooper.-read more
He may also have been using penicillin, long before antibiotics were developed.
The evidence comes from ancient DNA found in the dental tartar of Neanderthals living about 40,000 years ago in central Europe.
Microbes and food stuck to the teeth of the ancient hominins gives scientists a window into the past.
By sequencing DNA preserved in dental tartar, international researchers have found out new details of the diet, lifestyle and health of our closest extinct relatives.
"Their behaviour and their diet looks a lot more sophisticated and a lot more like us in-read more
