The Bowen Technique is a gentle hands-on remedial therapy. Moves can be applied directly to skin or if more comfortable for the client, through light clothing and is suitable for all ages. Muscles which hold our bodies in the correct alignment can sometimes be compromised by physical injury, poor posture, emotional trauma or constant stress. The Bowen Technique subconsciously connects the brain with the source of the problem bringing awareness and triggering adjustments in the body, which help to restore normal function. As it is often difficult to trace the root cause of many symptoms, Bowen addresses the whole body rather than simply focusing on the condition or symptom and ‘a quick-fix’, and therefore the outcome is often long-lasting, with the body being given the chance to heal itself properly.
Esther was previously a professional dancer, teacher and movement specialist for 15 years, having attained a BA (Hons) in Dance at the Laban Centre for Movement & Dance in London. Throughout her career she developed an interest in physical therapy, anatomy and physiology, through receiving treatment herself for various injuries and her subsequent progression into remedial bodywork felt like a very natural progression for her.
Esther trained at the European College of Bowen Studies and is a registered member of the Bowen Therapy Professional Association.
She has a practice in Bath at Milsom Street Clinic and is delighted to now also be offering treatments in the lovely town of Frome.
