Bowen is distinguished in its own category because of its gentleness, rapid effectiveness, low cost, and its ability to bring permanent relief using only a very short number of sessions in nearly EVERY case. Also, the work is performed with the client lying on a comfortable, fully clothed, no oil is used, and they are encouraged to let go of life for a while and just relax.
The biggest difference is that after receiving a Bowen treatment, the body will continue to heal and change for the next 3-5 days or so as though the body received a treatment everyday AND each treatment builds and compounds upon the last one. Somehow the body remembers the Bowen it has received. AND in most cases, only a few treatments are needed!
