Bowen Aftercare Advice


1. After the treatment, for the rest of the day do not sit longer than 30 minutes at a time.  Just get up, have a stretch and walk around the room for the rest of that day.


2. Walk as much as you can each day and for at least 15 minutes.


3. Drink as much pure water as possible - no less than 5 glasses a day.


4. Avoid stimulants, eg. Coffee, tea, alcohol for the rest of the day.


5. Avoid very hot or very cold food and drink.


6. Avoid excessive heat or cold on areas treated eg. ice packs, electric blankets.


7. Have your bath or shower warm NOT hot. Don't soak in the bath and avoid shower water hitting the back of your neck.   Stand sideways so that the water hits the shoulder. If you have a bad shoulder, let the water hit the good side.


8. Don't cross your legs.


9. Avoid carrying anything heavy on your shoulders.


10. If you have been shown any excercises following your treatment, please remember to do them as they are for your benefit.


11 .Avoid any other hands-on treatment for 7 days either side of a Bowen treatment as this will interrupt the Bowen healing process.


12. Gentlemen, please do not wear your wallet in your back pocket as this cause's an uneven pelvis and can be  the cause of back pain. aware of how you sit when relaxing, that that you are not even slightly twisting your waist or neck, this can cause R.S.I. over a period of years.
