Dr. Carolyn Goh runs a private clinic at Violet Hill Studios in St. Johns Wood, London.
What will happen in the first treatment?
The initial treatment will address the whole body. As a general rule, moves will be made over the lower and middle back and legs, the upper back and shoulders before finishing with neck moves with the client supine (face-up). Between sets of moves, the therapist will leave the room to allow the client to rest, allowing the body to respond to the Bowen moves.
The first session requires a consultation and initial treatment which normally lasts 1 hour.
Consultation: Health problem to be addressed, general health and wellbeing
1st treatment – general treatment to assess the responsiveness of the body and create overall balance.
Subsequent sessions will last approximately 45 minutes to one hour. The second session is booked for 5-7 days after the first, to ensure an adequate healing period.
The 2nd treatment is a targeted approach to specific imbalances in the body, and is only carried out after the body is assessed to have responded positively to the 1st session.
Costs: Consultation & 1st Treatment: 70.00 GBP
2nd & Subsequent Sessions: 60.00 GBP
Costs For Babies: Consultation & 1st Treatment: 40.00 GBP
2nd & Subsequent Sessions: 30.00 GBP
Most people will respond within three to four sessions, when even long-standing chronic pain can be relieved. Other conditions might need to be treated more often, but in either case it is recommended that clients return for regular treatments every six to eight weeks to maintain optimum health.
What should I wear?
Most of the work can be performed through light clothing (shorts and a light cotton T-shirt), although some therapists prefer to work on skin. The ultimate choice is that of the client’s.
Male clients are advised to bring a pair of shorts along.
Dos & Dont’s
It is vital that a client does not cease the treatment in response to a strong reaction. The moves are so subtle that if a strong reaction is experienced it demonstrates how profound the work can be and further treatments are essential if the full effect is going to be felt.
A fairly strong rule of Bowen is that it should not be mixed with other therapies. The treatment is in effect asking the body to undertake a process of repair and so should be allowed to do so without interruption or contradiction. A client will be asked not to have other forms of physical or energetic therapy whilst receiving Bowen treatments and to leave a period of a week either side.
Drink a glass of water after the treatment to encourage lymph drainage and blood flow.
Avoid any strenuous activities within 24 hours after a Bowen session.
