Bowen in the Workplace


Bowen for Back Pain in the Workplace from Total Balance AberdeenWHAT IS THE BOWEN TECHNIQUE?
The Bowen Technique is a gentle, non-invasive, truly holistic therapy which uses rolling moves on key points of the body.

Bowen sessions can be easily adapted for the workplace as there is no need to undress and taster sessions are a great way of introducing stress-relief techniques to your staff. Read on to find out how Bowen could help in your workplace.

  • Bowen can help many conditions, even long standing cases. Substantial relief can be achieved after just one session

Although Bowen can be wonderful for helping with the impact on the body of many conditions, many of my clients choose to have Bowen treatments because they enjoy the benefit of relaxation and improved well-being. You don't need to be unwell to enjoy a treatment!
Bowen can be used to release areas of tension within the body. Bowen triggers the self-healing mechanism; releasing energy blockages, old patterns of trauma and stored toxins, creating a feeling of improved well-being.
Each move sends a message to the brain, via the intricate fascial network (the sheet of connective tissue which surrounds the organs, muscles and other body tissues), allowing the body to release adaptations and restrictions and regain its natural harmonious state.

Some of the conditions with which my clients have attended a course of Bowen treatments include:

  • Pain: back pain, neck pain, joint pain, headaches, migraines, menstrual pain, sciatica, hip pain, knee pain
  • Restricted movement: through injury or conditions such as cerebral palsy; frozen shoulder
  • Swelling: from bites and stings to bursitis and inflammatory conditions; fluid retention
  • Structural: spinal problems; scoliosis; pelvic imbalance; leg length discrepancy; TMJ syndrome; plantar fasciitis
  • Respiratory: asthma, hay fever and allergies; sinus problems
  • Digestive: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, indigestion
  • Ear problems, tinnitus and dizziness
  • During pregnancy: aches and pains, back pain, carpal tunnel, digestive problems
  • Injuries - Sports injuries, RSI (Repetitive strain Injury) these include those injured at work eg through poor posture and otherwise eg musicians; Golfers Elbow, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome; Whiplash and Impact Injuries
  • Post-operative care for rehabilitation
  • Stress-related conditions: anxiety, depression, IBS, insomnia, teeth grinding, Bell's palsy


A treatment can be performed through lightweight clothing. Clients will usually lie down and relax on the treatment couch and are covered to keep warm. Seated treatments can be performed if necessary.
Sequences of moves are made on the body, with short gaps in between to allow the the body to absorb these moves and begin to reset itself. Some clients report sensations such as heaviness, tingling, waves of movement, warmth or coolness. Some clients feel lots of things happening, some feel nothing at all during the work, merely enjoying the relaxation the treatment brings
Each taster session lasts approximately 25 minutes and costs £35 per person.
A maximum of 8 sessions will be conducted on one day, with a minimum of 6 sessions.  
This is the perfect opportunity for your staff to give the Bowen Technique a try!

All that is required is a quiet room with enough space for a treatment couch and of course, some clients. I will provide the equipment, information sheets and any posters.
Your staff would be given an appointment time during the day and unless they are suffering from a serious illness (of which you would need to inform me) there are very few reasons why anyone should not any receive Bowen.
Everyone will need to complete a consultation form for the taster. Making an appointment assumes that they have read the above information and they give their consent for treatment.
