Frequently asked questions

Here are some of the questions I get asked regularly in my human & animal clinics.

If you can't find the answer you are looking for please get in touch

Does Bowen Therapy hurt?

No - Bowen Therapy is a very gentle, non-invasive technique that moves soft tissue only. It is safe for babies & the very elderly & those in acute pain. The aim of Bowen Therapy is to trigger the body's own ability to make changes via the nervous system & to do this we don't need to make any harsh adjustments or use heavy/deep pressure.

Can you help with bad back?

Yes - The main service I would offer for back pain is The Bowen Technique. Occasionally however the cause of back issues can be caused by the presence of a scar, such as an abdominal scar from previous surgery for example. When you visit me as a new client for Bowen Therapy I always make note of any scars you have to assess if McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release therapy would be indicated.

How do I know if my dog has got arthritis?

Arthritis can only be confirmed by your vet but there are signs that you will notice in your dog that may be an indication that they are in pain & need to be checked by a vet. You can find out more about canine osteoarthritis here

What can Bowen Therapy treat?

Bowen Therapy is a holistic technique so we treat the person/animal not the specific symptoms. As a Bowen Technique practitioner I am not qualified to diagnose or prescribe & I cannot say I treat specific conditions. However many symptoms - including muscular, internal & emotional - respond favourably to this technique. To find out more click here
