Aislinn completed her training with the College of Bowen Studies after seeing the effects of the treatment first hand on her daughter. Bowen is a non invasive technique that uses a series of gentle movements on specific points of the body over muscles and connective tissue. It relieves tensions, pain and stress and is therefore beneficial for sports injuries, back, shoulder and knee complaints. Bowen is a gentle remedial therapy that treats the body as whole rather than individual symptoms.
