"I always notice a definite upturn in my energy after receiving a Bowen treatment with Sarah. Initially feeling rather spaced out and tired, then after that I feel terrific. I have a very busy schedule at present, and Bowen has helped me to keep going. Thank you so much Sarah."
Maureen Williams, Writer, Brighton
What should I do after a treatment?

Water
Please ensure that you drink at least 5 glasses of still water each day. Water is essential following a Bowen Technique treatment. After your treatment the body starts to increase blood supply to nerve endings which in turn affects the movement of lymph around the body. The effective functioning of these systems is entirely reliant on water and on average the recommendation is that everyone should drink at least two litres of water per day.

Moving
In the days immediately following a Bowen Technique treatment, try not to sit still for more than 30 minutes at a time. A little walk around the room to have a stretch is all that is required to keep things moving.

Responses
Responses to Bowen treatment may include hot and cold flushes, headaches, emotional release, thirst, tiredness and body aches and pains. These are all positive signs that the healing process is working. These responses usually clear after a few days.

Exercise
Continue with any comfortable and gentle exercise regime that you already have, unless otherwise advised.

Medication
Do not alter any medication or diet that has been prescribed for you.

Heat/cold
Do not use ice packs or heat pads during a course of Bowen treatment.

Other Therapies
During the course of treatment with the Bowen Technique, do not receive another physical therapy such as reflexology, physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic, massage, acupuncture etc. for seven days before your Bowen Technique treatment, or within seven days of finishing Bowen Technique treatments. This is to ensure that the body is not overloaded with information or given differing therapeutic information to deal with at the same time.

Questions
If you have any questions or wish to discuss anything, before or after your treatment, Sarah is happy for you to email her at any time.
