It is a series of moves on the fascia (a connective tissue under the skin and round our organs and muscles) that stimulates the body’s natural responses to bring about self-healing. As Bowen is so gentle it is ideal for babies through to the elderly on everyone in between.
Bowen can be used to help with conditions such as:
Back pain, sciatica, neck pain, frozen shoulder
Digestive and bowel issues
Headaches and migraines
Stress and anxiety
Numbness, tingling, hypersensitivity
Asthma, hay fever, sinus problems
Menstrual and menopause issues
The following are details of a typical session:
The client will fill in an information form about your general health and consenting to the Bowen treatment
The client is laying down and may remain fully clothed if wearing light loose fitting clothing
The therapist performs a few gentle moves, by drawing the skin slack, nudging up against the edge of the muscle, tendon and then rolling over the muscle or tendon
The receptors of the muscle or tendon are engaged and a message is sent to the brain about what state the body is in
The therapist will wait for a few minutes before performing similar moves as this gives time for the body to start processing the information the brain has received
This will continue until the session has finished
Once the treatment is finished, the client will need to drink plenty of water, walk around to integrate the body changes and wait for the body to respond to the messages it has received
To get the maximum benefit from your Bowen treatment, it is recommended that you do the following after your session:
Walk – get up and walk around every half hour or so. This will help the body to integrate the changes that have been made.
Water – drink plenty of water – sip rather than gulp, this allows the water to seep through your system. Water will flush out the toxins from your body that have been activated during you treatment
Wait – you body will continue processing the changes up to 10 days after the treatment
“I see Carmel on a regular basis for Bowen Treatments, as I have found it is the only thing to truly help with my ongoing injuries and pains. I had frozen shoulder in 2016 and within 2yrs I had full rotation back in the shoulder.
I fully recommended her!!! Thanks Carmel for all that you have done!”

Since I had a car accident and sprained my ankle 6 years ago, I’ve continued to experience pain daily in my shoulders, neck, lower back, and ankle, as well as bad sciatic nerve pain in my hips. Over the past couple of months, I’ve had several Bowen therapy sessions with Carmel, and I now rarely experiencing any pain! I thoroughly recommend Bowen technique sessions with Carmel. She is very gentle and attentive to understanding what works to help me.

I have been a great believer in Bowen therapy for many years and have visited a lot of therapists over that time. For the last few years Carmel has been my therapist and I can honestly say that she has given me fantastic results. Carmel from Belleden therapy is a very gifted therapist and I am happy to recommend her.
