Bowen Therapy in Havelock North

Hi, my name's Louise. I'm a Bowen Therapist and a registered nurse who's been helping people reduce pain and stiffness in their bodies since 2008. I use the gentle hands-on Bowen techniques to stimulate your nervous system and connective tissues - the layers of tissue that cover your muscles, bones, and organs.  Bowen Therapy is different from other treatments like osteopathy and chiropractic.  For a start the applied technique often incorporates a skin slack challenge and roll, and after a few moves we Bowen therapists give time of about 2 minutes for the body to respond before we move on. I'm the only Bowen Therapist in the area with the added bonus of being trained in a unique way to assess and treat tensional drag patterns in the spine and body.  Bowen Therapy is relaxing, non-invasive and most people feel a reduction in pain straight away. However, it usually takes a few more sessions for longer-lasting results. I'm here to listen to your concerns and work with you to make a treatment plan that's perfect for you. I want to help you achieve your health goals and get you moving better without taking any medication. Book a session online today or give me a call. Your body will thank you! 


$50 1/2hr session.   Using IOS fast release approach.

$80 1hr recommended for full relaxation.

Bowen Therapy Havelock North

My clinic times can be organized to suit you, since I do work from home.  I do also do appointments in rest homes.  Sitting treatments are also very effective when clients cannot lie down.  Please call or text to book your appointment, or find the booking page.  Invest in keeping your body working for you.  Even if you do not have any discomfort or unease, just think of getting a regular tune-up.  People are surprised when they feel better than they already did.  Some feel so much better after their first session, that they think another session will not do much more, but then they are pleasantly surprised.

I am committed to providing my clients with the best possible care and help them achieve their wellness goals.
