The Bowen Technique affects the body primarily through two of its main regulatory systems (the nervous system and the energetic system) to bring it back to a state of balance or homeostasis.
In this technique, the practitioner stimulates the autonomous nervous system and releases pent up energies through a series of moves. Bowen moves are triggering this self clearing mechanism within the body and it is not the practitioner that is doing it using his own energy, as in Bowen, there is no intentional channeling or redirecting of the energy and there is no specific work that is done to rebalance individual chakra like in some other energetic techniques. It is a pure physical movements that are administered along the meridians of the client`s body.
A typical session starts with the administration of 3 basic sequences of moves to rebalance the lower back/sacrum, upper back and neck region.
To this general basic rebalancing, the Practitioner can choose to add a few more specific procedures to address a particular problem. All the mobilizations are gentle and non invasive. Often moves will be synchronized with the patient’s breath. The initial reaction of patients used to other modalities using deep probing, rubbing, stretching or manipulating may be to wonder if anything has been done or if the session will have any effect on them but very often they will quickly experience a deep sense of general relaxation. The entire process is so soothing that it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during the session.
They often report feelings of energy release and relief following a move. There are frequent pauses during the session, these are important to give time for the body to respond to the moves. During these pauses it is common that the Practitioner leaves the room to let the patient rest quietly. During the session small talks are not encouraged as everything done by the Practitioner and the general ambiance of the treatment room (soft music, comfortable room temperature…) should invite relaxation. A typical session will usually last from 20 to 50 minutes. Some sessions can be very short, 5 minutes or less, when using some advanced procedures or if doing a “quick fix” to address something very specific.
