Bowen Therapy Professional Association




The gentle Bowen moves are quickly embraced by children, as they find it very relaxing.  Each session is 20-30 minutes without the need of the breaks required for adults.  Treatment is received over light clothing, on couches, chairs, parent’s laps and often a baby enjoys the benefits across Mum or Dad’s shoulder.  A caring adult must always be present during treatment and will often support the therapist in making the whole procedure pleasurable by interacting with the child.

Conditions responding well to Bowen include:-

ADHD, asthma, autism, allergies, bed-wetting, constipation, cerebral palsy, chest infections, clicky hips, colic, croup, dyspraxia, eczema, glue ear, growing pains, headaches, muscular and skeletal problems, panic attacks, psoriasis sinusitis, stress and many more.  In addition it can improve/correct posture balance and co-ordination helping the child to learn new skills and improve confidence. 

Bowen benefits include:-

Improved sleeping pattern; more balanced energy level; better concentration and application; enhanced motor control and behaviour and generally happier, quieter children.  It also aids recovery from trauma e.g. difficult birth, accident, a family death, divorce/separation within family. Some childhood ailments may require regular treatments.
