Welcome to The Bowen Technique

Discover how this remarkable fascial release technique called Bowen can help you recover from injuries faster, find relief from pain, and aid your body’s recovery. I specialise in applying the Bowen Technique to your problems so that you can get back to your normal life quicker.

Bowen is a soft tissue remedial therapy. It encourages the body’s systems to rebalance and re-align thereby promoting healing and can help in a very wide range of conditions. When you receive your Bowen treatment it will consist of a series of gentle, rolling moves primarily with fingers or thumbs over muscle, ligament, tendon and connective tissue. This is a light pressure and no manipulation or high velocity movements are involved. These gentle moves are directly on skin, or if you prefer, through light clothing. In between sets of Bowen moves I will leave the room for short periods to allow you to rest. This pause is believed to allow the brain time to absorb the information it has received and act upon it.

Bowen is suitable to use on anyone from newborns to the elderly and substantial relief from pain and discomfort is frequently experienced after the first 2 - 3 sessions.

My name is Alwyn Wood. I have been practising Bowen since 2006 when I qualified with the European College of Bowen Studies (now College of Bowen Studies) under the supervision of Julian Baker, the most experienced Bowen Therapy teacher in Europe.

I am a member of the Bowen Therapy Professional Association (MBTPA), the main accrediting body for the technique that now has more than 400 members. Alongside their Bowen training, practitioners accredited by the Association have studied anatomy and physiology to Diploma level, and have a current First Aid Certificate. They are required to attend regular professional development courses to enhance their skills. BTPA also provides members with a code of ethics and practice.

Details can be found on the BTPA website or by contacting the help line on 0844 561 7173.

I am a licensed MSTR Practitioner.

Scar tissue release is a pain-free method of helping you with your scars. Gentle, finger-tip pressure is applied to the area to help free the restrictions the scar is causing.

This method was developed by Alistair McLoughlin, a senior Bowen Therapy Instructor, who realised the influence scars had on clients due to the tightness the scar was causing in the fascia. This tightness also causes a reduction in blood and lymph flow in the area, weakens muscular strength, reduces the flow of energy and inhibits joint movement.

This effective technique opens up the tight collagen fibres and underlying adhesions we cannot see. It is just as effective on an old scar as on a recent scar. If often means you did not realise the range of motion you had lost. A new scar would not be treated in less than 8 weeks from surgery. This work includes keyhole surgery presenting only a tiny scar.

Post surgical scars could include mastectomy, lumpectomy, appendix, gall bladder, hysterectomy, C-section, joint replacement. Any scarring as a result of trauma, burns, facial scars etc.

The scar once treated never reverts to its former state because the therapy can fundamentally change the structure of the scar itself.

My interest in complementary medicine has been over many years. I am a General Natural Therapist (GNT) with a Diploma in Advanced Holistic Practice (D.AHP). That training was undertaken through the Integrative College of Holistic Medicine which is affiliated to and accredited by the Association of Holistic Practitioners (International) and the Open International University for Complementary Medicine.
