My name is Sean Samuel and I am your qualified Bowtech Bowen Therapist. I look forward to assisting you to better health.
Before Your Treatment
What to Expect:
Bowen Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive hands-on therapy. Each treatment can take up to an hour depending on your presenting condition. Initial appointments allow for information gathering and will usually take the full 1 hour to ascertain your individual treatment needs. Most subsequent treatments are 45 minutes in length.
The treatment process is a series of small specific rolling moves over key muscles, tendons and nerve bundles. Wait times of around 2 minutes between short Bowen moves allow the body to begin its return to your ‘blueprint’ relaxed state. To assist the body in its progress you are encouraged to drink 2 litres of water daily. Bowen continues to work for the next 5 – 7 days.
Depending on your condition, some moves may require contact in personal areas such as groin or beneath the bra strap. As your therapist, I will let you know before such a move to gain your consent.
As everyone is an individual, they will experience the effectiveness of the Bowen at different times. For some, relief will be experienced immediately. For others it may be the next day or a few days later. Generally, the longer a person has a condition, the more ingrained is the concern, and this may mean a longer treatment regime. Most people find the results they are looking for in 2 – 6 treatments. You are encouraged to have at least 2 treatments to maintain the pattern of your ‘blueprint’ state. A few Bowen specific moves can only be done on the second treatment as they can be very powerful.
What to Wear:
Ideally, Bowen moves are best performed with direct contact to the skin. However, your sense of comfort and modesty are a prime concern. Bowen can be performed through very light clothing. It is recommended that a thin cotton top such as a singlet and shorts/running shorts be worn for each treatment if underwear only is not desired. Clothing such as denim or similar and lycra make it too difficult to perform effective Bowen moves. At all times during the treatment you will be covered to maintain your modesty and a comfortable body temperature.
Payment / Health Funds:
Initial consultations are $120.00 and Subsequent consultations are $110.00. Bowen Therapy can be manually claimed with your private health fund, we just can’t perform electronic claiming. My provider number will be provided with the invoice at the end of the consultation.
