In a Bowen Technique session
the patient lies on a bed, wearing loosely fitting clothes and relaxes, even falls asleep at times. The therapist applies a carefully orchestrated series of gentle movements along the spine and at specific points throughout the body. These movements
consist of a subtle rolling of muscle, nerve, tendon and connective tissue. The therapist leaves the room between each pattern in the series so as to allow the patient the maximum space for deep
relaxation and integration of the information received.
