Bowen Technique

The Bowen Technique, practiced at Solar Health, is a remedial, hands-on therapy that is applied using very gentle pressure. The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise points of the body to perform Bowen’s unique sets of rolling-type moves which stimulate the muscles and soft tissue of the body. There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used. The experience of a treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing. It is believed that the Bowen Technique prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself and clients report the experience of pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy.

One of the most common complaints for which people seek Bowen treatment is back pain. It can also be used to treat painful and restricted shoulders, neck pain, sports injuries, respiratory conditions and headaches.
