What is The Bowen Technique?
  • Developed by Tom Bowen in Australia the technique has only recently come to the U.K. It is a unique therapy which stimulates the body's own healing responses and may adjust abnormalities which cause pain.
  • The Bowen technique consists of a series of precise and gentle moves over muscle and connective tissue, interspersed with periods of rest in order for the treatment to be absorbed. It is a truly holistic therapy (treats the whole body).
    Most people find it very relaxing as there is no manipulation involved.
  • Bowen Therapy usually produces maximum results with minimum intervention. The majority of people feel some positive response after only one or two sessions. (Although a course of 2-3 treatments is generally recommended) in most cases only a few treatments are required to achieve relief from even long standing problems (eg chronic back pain & frozen shoulder).
  • The treatment takes about 45 minutes and can help anyone from the newborn to the elderly.

Our clinics in Sale and Goostrey are easily accessible from Knutsford, Altrincham, Hale, Manchester, Congleton, Middlewich, Crewe, Alderley Edge, Wilmslow, Northwich, Holmes Chapel and throughout Cheshire.

I am Qualified Instructor with the original Bowen Association.

About the therapist

My name is Jan Williamson. I qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1987, then went on to do a post grad course in Neuro-medical and Neurosurgical nursing.
I then worked within the medical profession in various roles.
During this time I became more aware about the health benefits people can gain from complimentary medicine.

I heard about the Bowen therapy, and having suffered from a kidney complaint for almost 20 years, which gave me pain every day, I decided to give it a try.
After having one treatment I woke the next day pain free, and have not had a problem since!

I was convinced Bowen worked, and decided to give up my Nursing career to become a Bowen therapist in order to help people in a diffent way.
I hold a Diploma from the Bowen therapy acacemy of Australia (the original Bowen school) and am a member of the Bowen association UK.
I have since qualified as an Instructor and run courses throughout the year to teach people this revolutionary new skill.

I have been running my Bowen Clinic for 13 years and have attended several post basic courses including the Advanced Bowen and the Masterclass. As a Instructor my work is revised and assessed each year by Ossie & Elaine Rentsh who learned Bowen directly from Mr Bowen himself and brought the technique to the world.

Having been a Nurse, and also having children of my own, I like to feel I can put most people -from children to the elderly at their ease, allowing them to enjoy and benefit from the treatment.

Now everyday seeing the amazing results and helping people relieve pain, I keep hearing the same thing, " I have tried everything- but Bowen works"


I Had nearly given up after no result from osteopathy, chiropractic and accupuncture. My treatment here has been superb and my back pain completely erradicated. I have returned for shoulder treatment.

"I have been having treatment with Jan intermittently for 2 years. I have regular sessions as my condition requires it. Before Bowen I was regularly laid up in bed with back pain- not any more. The treatment is very effective and I rarely have to take painkillers. All in all my life has improved dramatically.

I know that this Bowen technique works, kept me working all last year. Regular treatments are the secret! and a good investment for back pain free golf. I reccommend the technique for all types of people - you don,t have to be a sportsman. Mike Williams - Golf professional

This Is return visit after many years pain free I first came in approx 2003 & had treatment for neck, shoulder and headaches, I have not had a migraine since the treatment! My body always feels better after treatment.
