Our speaker was Janet Cox from Bournemouth, a registered practitioner of the Bowen Technique. The Bowen Technique is a gentle soft tissue form of body work: it involves the therapist using thumbs and forefingers to make rolling motions over precise points of the client’s body. It induces relaxation and seems to encourage the body to realign its own natural sense of balance.
Jan outlined the history and theory of the technique, and spoke about the practical benefits the therapy can bring to people with a wide variety of physical and emotional conditions including tinnitus. She concluded her talk with a fascinating and dramatic hands-on demonstration involving two volunteers from the audience, one sitting down and a second lying on a therapy table.
Jan’s talk proved extremely interesting and afterwards several members enquired about the possibility of arranging individual Bowen sessions. This is something we will be looking into. We are grateful to Jan for her excellent talk and for stepping in at such short notice when our original speaker unfortunately had to cancel.
