Bowen Technique

The bowen technique at Shine health & beauty salons in Stoke Newington & Newington Green

Health Treatments will incur a Covid fee to be paid at Reception for each appointment.

The Bowen Technique is an empowering therapy which uses deep relaxation to encourage your body’s self-healing resources. Unlike most massage-based treatments, it aims to realign your body from within, rather than through external physical manipulation. And, like traditional Chinese medicine, it focuses on stimulating and balancing your energy flows.

Why would I choose this healing therapy?

This subtle technique is often sought for chronic and acute pain relief, sports injuries, musculoskeletal problems, allergies, digestive issues or sciatica. The practitioner makes gentle rolling movements at precise points over tendons/ligaments/muscles or nerves with her thumbs and fingers, interspersed with periods of rest, to allow your body to respond. Benefits may include long term relief from pain, realignment and increased energy. Safe for adults and babies.

Three to six visits are generally recommended for maximum results.

“Joanna is an exceptional Bowen Technique therapist. She is very efficient, precise and focused during the session. She really cared about me getting better as fast as I could. She helped me tremendously with my lower back pain during the last months of pregnancy. I was in so much pain and unfortunately neither massage nor osteopathy managed to cease my aches. I felt amazing after the first session, my pain level went down tremendously and I managed to have a full night of sleep. After two more sessions my pain level went down from 10 to 1 and it really made a huge difference during the end of my pregnancy. Her gentle but profound work inspired me to become a Bowen therapist myself! I wholeheartedly recommend Joanna to anyone. I am certain she will miraculously help you to become pain free.”

I have been having migraine and back and neck pain for years and the only way to live with it was getting regularly back massages. A friend recommended Joanna and her Bowen method - I was very skeptical. But to be honest I was desperate as my neck was aching so much that I decided to try. Joanna straight away noticed that my posture is not aligned (which I think one in 20 therapist I went to have ever noticed) and started touching and putting pressure on certain muscles - it was very weird as in between she pauses for a few minutes. BUT it really worked - after her session my neck pain was gone and stayed that way for weeks. I would definitely recommend it if you have pain in your back/ neck - why not give it a try - nothing to loose and lots to gain..." - mum of 2 and full time office worker

"Joanna's Bowen treatment has been amazingly effective in dealing with my back problems. I feel more relaxed than I can remember - even with working at a desk all day! - and am no longer experiencing the back aches and stiffness I have suffered from for years since I injured my back. The treatment not only gave me relief from back ache but a general sense of well-being and calm. I have had many other kinds of treatment for my back over some time including osteopathy but I have found Bowen technique to be the best - much gentler, yet profound and long lasting. Joanna is a very skilled and sensitive practitioner and I am so glad I found her. I would highly recommend her to anyone."

“Joanna has given me three Bowen treatments. I initially asked Joanna to see me because I had pulled a muscle in my back. This was painful and restricted my movement and prevented me from exercising. After my first appointment the pain and range of movement in my back was considerably better and I felt more relaxed. After the second treatment the pain was gone and I had regained full range of movement and was able to exercise again. I have been very impressed both by the swift resolution of my problem and by Joanna's professionalism. One each occasion she has been very trough checkup my progress. I would constantly be happy to see Joanna as a Bowen Therapist.”

Working with Joanna is amazing. She's Not only a great listener and communicator but very psychic and intuitive. In comparison to treatments from other therapists my experience is totally different. I usually get a combination of bowen therapy and acupuncture to prevent both injuries end stay stress free. And when necessary we can also work on psychological and subconscious level to move beyond the limits of the mind.

I see Joanna on a regular basis for acupuncture facials and massage. I managed to see her for just one session when it was safe to do so following the initial Lockdown. I always look forward to my sessions and leave the salon with glowing skin and feeling energised and uplifted. Joanna has a holistic approach to any treatment and can tell if other areas of the body are out of synch.  She is a warm, friendly and welcoming and is a thoroughly professional and very knowledgeable therapist.  I have no hesitation in recommending Joanna.

“Joanna is a truly gifted practitioner, that skilfully uses her bowen and acupuncture therapies. I have been seeing her for years, after she helped me quickly recover from a fall that doctors told me would take months to heal. Within a week I felt back to normal! Since then I have used bowen and acupuncture to address muscle/joint pains created through prolonged screen time (computer use). It’s nice to have this tool, and avoid any long term issues. I would highly recommend Joanna as a therapist, her knowledge and skills are exceptional.”
