Therapeutic Pause Marilyn Lawrence CBS Trained MBTPA and member of CNHC


One of the unusual features of Bowen Technique is the gap between moves, when the therapist leaves the room for a couple of minutes, sometimes a little more. It has been suggested on a personal level, that I go out and play the Stock Market (an interesting idea!) or have a cup of tea (not unknown).


Perhaps a quote from an eminent researcher into the properties of fascia - the connective tissue type, not the weatherboarding - might be helpful.


Dr. Robert Schliep is director of Fascia Research at the University of Ulm, Germany and he has recently been quoted as saying:


“I think when Bowen Therapists leave the room it leaves the body with a question mark and that is an extremely good thing.” *


So, perhaps a good way to describe the gap is a therapeutic or listening pause. The therapist is listening to the body and noting the changes it may make in that pause. More importantly, the body is listening to itself, a process called Interoception.


After all, most clients arrive at a treatment for changes to of movement. To feel at ease in their body again.


As Bowen therapists, we are there, through that ‘listening touch’ to allow the client to make adaptations to achieve their personal goals, with a little help from us. These goals may be in the fields of athletic prowess, or they may be the ability to hang washing out again, alight from a bus or sit comfortably for the first time in years. Perhaps even play tennis or golf without pain.


So, I would encourage you to come and experience for yourself what Bowen with its listening pauses might do for you. The treatment itself is gentle and can be performed through clothing if preferred. The results can be startling.


I look forward to seeing you in the new room on the ground floor at North Lakes Clinic, so you don’t even have to negotiate stairs anymore! We also have a brand new all-singing all-dancing couch, which Catriona, one of our wonderfully helpful receptionists suggested I learn ‘to fly’ before using it. I promise you I will.
