The Bowen technique is a gentle, hands-on, remedial therapy named after Thomas Ambrose Bowen, who developed the practice in the 1950s.
Applying very light pressure, practitioners use thumbs and fingers in unique sets of rolling-type movements to stimulate the muscles and soft tissues of the body. The idea is to prompt the body to reset, repair and balance itself.
Being a holistic therapy, the Bowen technique looks at the whole body, and its effects are thought to help both physical and emotional issues.
Clients report pain relief, improved mobility and increased energy, as well as a deeply relaxing experience.
Liz discovered the Bowen technique when suffering from a shoulder injury, which other treatments couldn’t resolve. She was so impressed with the results that she went on to train with the European College of Bowen Studies.
Clients come to Liz with a range of acute and chronic complaints, including back pain, sports injuries and mobility issues - from tight hamstrings to frozen shoulder.
Bowen therapy has also been found to ease asthma, hay fever and menopausal symptoms, and to boost circulation and lymphatic drainage.
Being so gentle, the treatment is suitable for everyone from the tiniest babies to the frailest adults.
When not busy in her Bowen clinic, Liz can be found working with her retail business, digging on her allotment or going for long walks in the countryside.
