The Bowen & Body Health Clinic opened in Cullompton in 2011. Situated 2 minutes from J28 of the M5, it is within easy reach of the Devon county town of Exeter and the Somerset county town of Taunton - being approximately 15 miles from each. There is on-street parking (free for an hour) immediately outside the clinic, with a 'shoppers' car park (free for 2 hours) 100m away. The clinic specialises in Bowen Technique, but also offers other therapies such as Sports & Remedial Massage, Shiatsu, Hopi Ear Candles and Homoeopathy.
What is Bowen?
A simple and effective, non-invasive, hands-on therapy which uses fingers and thumbs to make precise rolling-type moves over connective tissue, tendons and ligaments. There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used and the treatment is generally pleasant and relaxing to receive. Particular attention is given to areas of trouble or discomfort but the whole body is treated as an interconnected and interdependent structure.
The first treatment lasts an hour and involves a thorough assessment of the client's physical health. Follow-ups are about 45-50 minutes. For best results it is advisable to avoid any other hands-on treatments 7 days before and after your Bowen treatment.
How it works
The precise moves of the Bowen Technique cause a release of surface tension and stimulate the underlying structures to adjust and re-align towards better physical health and balance. During the treatment there are short breaks where the client is left resting to allow the body some time to respond before the next series of Bowen moves.
