Body Talk - 11th September

My guest this week was Jacqui Fordham, talking about the Bowen Technique. This is a very gentle form of massage, working to release tension in the body. You don't have to get undressed, it can be done through clothing. Basically it uses the movement of the skin to effect a rolling action over the muscle. Jacqui demonstrated on the back of my hand. It is a very light touch, applying only the amount of pressure that you would use to rub your eyelid.

Jacqui was drawn to this technique after suffering severe back problems and having tried much of what was around. She eventually had an operation and it was during her recovery period from the operation that she was able to find a practitioner and her recovery was amazing. After just six weeks she was up and about and back to normal.

Since then she trained as a practitioner herself and has enabled many other back pain sufferers to find a new lease of life. The average number of treatments needed is three, but everyone is different. Most people will notice a change in their condition immediately.

The Bowen Technique is also effective in treating many other conditions such as asthma, irritable bowel, migraine and stress. If you want to find out more, let me know, and I can pass on your comments and questions to Jacqui.
