Bowen Technique

I help people with injuries, get back to training, playing and to daily life, in the quickest time possible by using the Bowen technique which provides significantly quicker recovery to optimum health.

What is Bowen Technique?

A Bowen Technique practitioner will make rolling moves over precise points of the body, to free up restrictions and to bring about alignment, in a relaxing and restorative way. 

In Bowen we work over fascia, which envelops muscles, cells, ligaments, joints and nerves. The aim is to support you to feel better, to be free from pain, increase your posture and range of movement.

Who can it help?

Do you still have a niggling injury? Or a new injury?
Is muscle, nerve or joint pain affecting your daily life?
Are your muscles or joints limited in a range of movement ?
Do you feel out of sorts, a bit emotional and stressed?
Perhaps you have felt scared to see a practitioner that uses needles, or that clicks bones back into a place?

Bowen is so relaxing at providing effective alignment that it can be used on new acute injuries – hooray!

Some manipulation therapies require forcing bones back to alignment, which can be stressful and the adjustments do not always hold. This might also encourage continual appointments – boo! 

Bowen technique is so relaxing, it encourages the bodies own self-healing mechanism, so your body makes the changes and the results are the adjustments hold for longer and more effectively as the body is so relaxed – yipeee!

Some of the many benefits of having a relaxing Bowen Technique treatment:

Pain relief, you really don’t have to get ‘used’ to living with pain.

Increased range of movement to your muscles and joints, so you can do more in your work/hobbies/everyday life.

Stress reduction. Yes it is so important to allow our precious bodies to relax.

Posture improvement, most clients say they feel straighter after the treatment, as we are freeing up restrictions to fascia, which wraps around our muscles.

Increase in flexibility, when you are in alignment, you will feel freer to move further.

Do you know when you are balanced and aligned, everything is better, including digestion, sleep and sexual response.

The Treatment Plans

We will begin by seeing where you are at with your current symptom, how its impacting your life and how you are taking care.
The first session might involve a few questions, posture assessment and muscle testing techniques, so I can gather information and create a treatment plan that is effective.

Feel relaxed, see improvements to pain relief and muscle mobility, within the first session.
I will provide other self care tips to prevent further re-injury and pain.
Typically most back, neck and hamstring injuries/complaints require 4 realignment treatments, 1 week apart. That's why I recommend a bundle of 4 treatments.
For more chronic pain & injuries, specifically frozen shoulder, 8 realignment treatments are recommended, this might be 1-3 weeks apart depending on the individual.
  • Course of 4 – £185
  • Course of 8 = £305
  • One off treatments – £50

Here are some clients sharing their experience of receiving Bowen.


“I have no understanding of how Emily does it but she is just completely brilliant and magic as far as I’m concerned. I simply can’t recommend her enough”

Jujitsu student had ‘crunched’ her neck doing a backwards roll, which led to serious limited neck movements and a lot pain and discomfort in moving.

Treatment and results

She came to see me right after the injury for an emergency appointment, she didnt realise that Bowen is safe enough to treat right after an injury, she felt relaxed, the shock was taken out of her body and the body could begin to repair. Her neck movement returned shortly after the treatment and then had a follow up session a week later and was able to get back to training the following week.


She was pleased I called so quickly because Bowen can be used immediately on injuries as it’s non invasive and can really help the healing process right from the start. 

I used to be physiotherapist for 10 years and I never touched a patient who had literally just injured themselves (especially on the neck!) and would recommend rest and ice or heat etc for the initial period. It was such a relief to find there was something I could actually do immediately to specifically help my injury directly.

I felt my body immediately able to relax at a time of such pain and shock.

Emily carried out the treatment and I have no idea what she does or how Bowen works but after the treatment the shock in my body and mind had gone – I was no longer shaking! I felt more aligned, calmer and the pain had certainly decreased. I knew with this type of injury I wasn’t going to be pain free and have full range of movement for a while, but I knew I had significantly helped the healing process already and as Bowen continues to work over several days.

In all my time as a physio I have never seen or experienced such dramatic results for such an acute and significant injury. Neither for my clients or that of any of my colleagues. A few days later and I’m back to training again.

I have no understanding of how Emily does it but she is just completely brilliant and magic as far as I’m concerned. I simply can’t recommend her enough: If you have any injuries or pain at all anywhere, do yourself a massive favour and just get to her as quick as you can!!”



“I couldnt recommend Emily any higher, she is fab!”

24 year old student contacted me as she had really bad back pain, after a fall to the coccyx, that had been untreated. Every few months her back would feel out of place and that would mean missing work, she was also suffering with migraines. She previously had found the chiropractor too aggressive for her preference and it created a bad pain in her neck.

Treatment and results

She began with a hot stone massage and she couldn’t believe how much this alone eased her symptoms, she then went on to have 4 sessions of bowen which completely resolved her migraines, back and neck pain and meant she was no longer taking days off work as her back wasn’t coming out of place. She now comes as and when for a top up either in bowen or hot stone massage.

“She is very kind, provides a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere, and is very good at what she does”

27 year old sports lover had a ski injury with cartilage damage to the sternum, she experienced a lot of pain in her shoulders, arms, ribs and back when breathing and moving, she was unable to lift objects at work, the pain was seriously impacting her everyday life.

Treatment and results

After only 3 bowen sessions all symptoms had resolved, except minor pain when breathing due to cartilage damage to the sternum, which will take a little longer to heal. She told me she had another skiing trip booked after the first session and I said lets take it easy as you might not be able to ski and then she successfully managed to ski! Also enjoy her holiday as she quickly sought help for her injury. She is now way more relaxed and had the trauma/stress from the injury removed from her body.
