Bowen during pregnancy.....

During pregnancy your centre of gravity changes, this leaves the Spine and Pelvis open to stress as the pregnancy progresses due to hormones and the growing baby. Pregnancy may create new problems within the body and exasperate existing ones. Bowen therapy has a very important role in the health-care of women both during and after pregnancy. Bowen therapy may be able to help you with effective relief for familiar pregnancy discomforts such as:

  • Back ache
  • Posture
  • Pelvic pain
  • Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD)
  • Swollen feet
  • Sacral pain/discomfort
  • Aching legs
  • Heartburn
  • Depleted energy levels
  • Breast pain/tension

Baby Bowen...


Baby Bowen is a series of gentle yet highly effective moves that are made on your baby’s back and front. The moves are extremely effective at rebalancing the nervous system in babies and can make a huge difference to babies suffering from birth trauma, tense muscles as well as immature digestive systems. The result is a calm, happy baby that sleeps better.

Newborn babies often experience problems with their bowels (gut). These can lead to constipation, wind and gas and is one of the main causes of colic in babies. A colicky baby is not a happy baby and can cause the parents a huge amount of distress.


Below is a video showing how gentle Baby Bowen is.
