The Bowen Association UK is an independent, non-profit making organisation and is governed by its members.
The Bowen Technique is a recognised hands-on complementary therapy, which many turn to for significant relief from troubling aches and pains and (often) to address long-standing issues, where clients tell us ‘they have tried everything else’.

We believe Bowen enables the body to recognise where change is needed, assists the natural healing process and helps you to relax … thus releasing muscular tension, improving posture, flexibility and helping to reduce your pain.
Can Bowen help me?
We believe Bowen Therapy is suitable for everyone. There is no vigorous manipulation, which makes it kind to those who are sensitive to pressure.
Bowen practitioners treat clients from the very young to the very elderly, and increasingly, in palliative care. We also have specially trained practitioners who can offer Bowen to horses and pets.
The Bowen Technique has an excellent track record in helping people with a wide variety of symptoms.
Read what our clients say about how Bowen Therapy has helped them:
Everyone responds differently
Some Bowen clients find improvement holding after only one or two sessions. For others, it may take longer, perhaps between 3 to 6 sessions. Clients with ongoing chronic conditions often continue with therapy on a regular basis to maintain their wellbeing.
Practitioners set their own fees and these vary across the UK. Sessions typically last 45 – 60 minutes (longer on the first visit as we will discuss your medical history with you) and may cost between £35 – £65. Parts of London may be more, but wherever your chosen therapist is, they will be clear about their charges at the outset.
Private Health Cover: Bowen is currently recognised by Westfield Health and Medicare. Please check if your health insurance company covers Bowen treatments.
