How Bowen Technique Helps You When Going Through a Divorce

I interviewed Catherine Ford of Feel Better With Bowen with video camera in hand to better understand what Bowen is and how it is relevant to someone navigating divorce. Here Catherine explains how Bowen helps people who are getting a divorce to release anger and relieve tension in this informative short video:

"The Bowen Technique is a simple and straightforward natural solution for eliminating pain, stress and tension and for addressing many common and complex ailments. Rather than focusing on a single complaint, Bowen addresses the whole body/person by restoring balance via the autonomic nervous system (the body's fight or flight response which puts the body on alert).

The treatment comprises gentle precise movements over specific points in the body that encourage the body into a state of profound relaxation from where it re-starts its healing of the physical and emotional body.

When the body is very stressed it is likely that the person will be:

  • Low on energy
  • Not sleeping well
  • Muddle-headed
  • Indecisive
  • Anxious
  • Very emotional showing anger/ frustration/ hurt/lack of self-confidence or self-esteem.
  • Possible aches and pains - headaches, sore backs, digestive problems, adrenal fatigue etc.

A person who is contemplating or going through a divorce, no matter how amicable, will almost certainly experience some or all of the above mentioned symptoms.

Clients, after a few sessions, have reported back not only feeling less stressed or emotional, but also having reached a clarity of mind allowing them to come to difficult and life-changing decisions more easily.

It is important that people take their well being seriously when going through a stressful life change like divorce, and access a wide range of resources that will lead them down an more amicable path."
