NST Bowen Therapy

NST Bowen Therapy

NST stands for Neuro-structural Integration Technique, and was inspired by the life’s work of Tom Bowen.  It is a hands-on technique in spinal and structural therapy for pain removal and realigning your body.

Using soft-tissue manipulation, NST Bowen is able to reset the body’s muscle tensional system causing safe, natural auto-regulation to occur within the spinal column and it’s structures, thereby eliminating pain and symptoms, while restoring postural integrity and vitality.

Typically an NST Bowen session induces deep relaxation and is tailored to the clients needs.

NST Bowen Therapy may benefit the following conditions:

  • Back pain, neck pain, and other spinal conditions

  • Leg, knee, ankle and foot conditions

  • Shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand conditions

  • Headaches

  • Cranial conditions

  • Joint conditions

  • Digestive conditions

  • Respiratory conditions

  • Chronic fatigue

  • …and much more!


“WOW!!! Joan has transformed my life.

For a long time I had been troubled with pain between my shoulder blades, searing pain somewhere in my left shoulder joint and horrible lower back pain.  I have tried all sorts of different treatments before trying NST Bowen.  It felt like I had been run over by a bus the day after the treatment, and then everything started to get better over the next few days, and now I feel like I have got my life back again.

I am telling everyone about Joan, she is going to be booked up solid, as I am just so different at work that everyone keeps commenting that I look so happy, and I say ‘go and see Joan, she is ace’.

I didn’t realise the awful effect pain had been having on me, a big thank you to Joan for sorting me out.”

“I am a great fan of the Bowen Technique and have used it at many times in my life to benefit both my own and my children’s health.  However, in September 2017 I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Following the diagnosis I underwent a lengthily period of medical treatment which included a mastectomy, the removal of lymph glands, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.  This placed my body under an inordinate amount of stress.  During this time I saw Joan for a Bowen Treatment every 3-4 weeks.  With hindsight, I am not sure how I would have managed without it.  The Bowen helped stimulate lymphatic drainage, heal the surgical scars and balance my traumatised body.  Following a treatment I always felt more positive and better able to face the next chemo treatment challenge.

As a therapist Joan is kind, gentle and extremely capable.  I felt that she fully empathised with the challenges I was facing and used her knowledge to help heal them and support me. I am now well on the road to recovery and have reduced the frequency of my Bowen Treatments.  However, Joan and her Bowen will remain an important part of my ongoing, happy, health care routine!”

“I have been receiving monthly NST Bowen Therapy treatment from Joan for several hears and have found the sessions very beneficial.  I have also had some extremely helpful lifestyle advice during treatments.  Joan keeps my various musculoskeletal problems under control and the fact that I am continuing with the treatments speaks for itself.  I would recommend NST Bowen Therapy to anyone with musculoskeletal issues.”
