“I would highly recommend Belinda as an intuitive therapist who manages to tie in sound Bowen principles with working with each person to help overcome health concerns they may be having.
I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis from the age of 8 and I suffer from inflamed joints, tight muscles, fatigue and disrupted sleep. The holistic approach of Bowen meant the benefits became all-encompassing and benefited me immensely. The treatment itself is non-invasive and really pleasurable – especially once the feel great endorphins kick in. Not only did the treatment help immensely with direct pain in my lower spine and hips, after each session I felt like a weight had been lifted, and was guaranteed improved sleep, more energy, clearer mind and greater ability to focus.” LeAnne Blakelock
Whether we are aware of it or not, we store emotional issues in our tissues, which manifests itself as physical symptoms such as back ache, shoulder pain, stiffness, headaches, and other issues.
I have been practising intuitive Bowen for several years now, and have found that through working with the client, and helping them to ‘tune in’ to their body, deep seated emotional issues can be helped.
Intuitive Bowen is very similar to ordinary Bowen, but with a more ‘mindful’ approach on the part of the client. It can be very beneficial for stress, depression, and anxiety issues.
Bowen therapy is a gentle, non-invasive remedial therapy that can have profound and long-lasting effects. It involves soft tissue moves on the superficial and deep connective tissue – or fascia.
Our optimal functioning depends on the elasticity and fluidity of the fascia as this is the medium through which communication and flow occur between cells and tissues. Bowen therapies consist of a series of cross-fibre moves at significant points around joints, in muscles and fascia, with pauses to allow the body’s own healing mechanisms time to integrate and respond to what is being done. The location of the moves often coincides with key acupuncture points found along meridians that flow with the superficial and deep connective tissue or fascia. These gentle (or sometimes intense) moves affect the crystalline structure of the fascia and transmit instant messages. Just like a spider web, when one strand vibrates it ripples throughout.
The effect is to balance the structural aspects of our body and stimulate function of the whole body while addressing target areas or pain syndromes. Bowen Therapy supports a state of deep overall relaxation and healing – therefore it is very beneficial for stress and anxiety, as well as physical ailments.
Common responses to treatment often include:
better body mechanics and reduced pain
Deep relaxation and stress reduction
A clearer head space.
Typically a session takes around 45 minutes and the frequency of sessions will depend on each condition. For acute symptoms, change usually happens within 3 sessions spaced 1 week apart. More long-term or chronic conditions may take regular treatments over a longer period but with wider spaces between sessions. Bowen Therapy is a wonderful way to maintain your wellbeing by having regular (monthly or 6-weekly sessions) and can help you avoid injury and illness from sports and your lifestyle.
It has been shown to be extremely effective in the treatment of many conditions including:
- Back pain and other muscular skeletal issues
- Headaches and migraines
- Stress and anxiety

BOWEN FOR MOTHERS AND INFANTS
Birth is a very traumatic experience for babies, and treatment within a few days or weeks of birth is highly beneficial, particularly after assisted birth such as forceps or von tuse.
Birth takes its toll on Mum’s body too, and treatment helps with back pain and rebalancing of the pelvis, helping to promote a speedy recovery.
In addition Bowen Therapy is highly effective for some of the common ailments that can cause infants pain and distress:
- Unsettled temperament
As a client said:
“I chose Bowen for my 15 month old to treat her reflux and constipation in a more natural way. I found the process of Bowen gentle and non-invasive and had wonderful results. Within a few weeks she didn’t require any medication and was free of these complaints. I’m thrilled with the results we’ve had from Bowen therapy!”
“I highly recommend Belinda. Her non-invasive and gentle approach helped immensely, and her intuition and kindness makes for a sublime and uplifting experience” Ange Nicholl
