How long does a session go for?
A session usually goes for 1.5hr. It is ideal to take a short walk afterwards before driving so be sure to allow time for this afterwards. Please arrive 5 minutes before your scheduled time.
What do I wear?
A Bowen Treatment is best done with the client wearing comfortable underwear, and can also be done through light clothing. When the body rests, temperature usually drops so a light covering is provided for comfort and modesty.
How many treatments will I need?
Although a great deal of relief may be achieved after just one treatment, it is recommended to return for at least one follow-up a week to ten days later. For excellent results, three to four treatments is ideal, each a week apart. Many folks choose to have ongoing regular treatment for maintenance, prevention of illness and promotion of overall wellbeing in the body, mind and spirit. Highly active people report fewer injuries as well as enhanced performance when treated regularly.
Is there anything I should or shouldn't do after the treatment?
A Bowen session will continue to create change for 5-7 days after the treatment. It is ideal to let the Bowen do its work to reset the body without adding any other modalities or techniques such as massage, acupuncture or chiropractic for at least the first 2-3 days after receiving a Bowen. Bowen will not alter the effects of any modality that is received prior. Strong physical exertion or exercise as well as immersion in really hot or cold water (i.e a hot bath or a swim in a cold river) may neutralize the changes that the body is trying to accomplish after a Bowen treatment, so it is best to refrain from these activities for the first two or three days after a session.
