Pregnancy, babies, children and adolescents.







Bowen Technique and acupuncture have been found to be useful at every step, from conception to the postnatal care of mother and baby, increasingly being advocated to support the rapid changes of the body. 


Treatments can be given whilst seated or lying, which means they can be received right up to labour. 

After childbirth, they can help to bring the body (especially the pelvis) back into alignment and balance. 


"I started seeing Julia during my second pregnancy. I was experiencing restless legs and this resulted in interrupted sleep, leaving me very tired and irritable. Bowen was effective in reducing the frequency of the condition, relieving tension and allowing my body to relax. Overall, the technique helped my body cope with the demands of pregnancy whilst giving an increased sense of wellbeing."

 Help is sought by parents for many reasons including:


Colicky crying

Slugglish bowel movements

Sleep patterns


So gentle, the baby will not be alarmed by the treatment, usually still in the arms of it's parent. It is increasingly sought by new parents following a traumatic birth.




"(Baby - 6 months) had been very constipated, uncomfortable and unhappy for several weeks early into weaning. Julia made a few gentle  Bowen moves - it took just 12 hours to take effect. (Baby) is obviously so much more comfortable, happier and now filling her nappies with great regularity! We would recommend parents consider Bowen for their children."
