Bowen technique (BT) is a therapy that uses a light, non-invasive pressure applied to specific and prescribed locations throughout the body to trigger the body's own self-healing powers. Frozen shoulder is a painful condition associated with a reduced range of motion in the affected shoulder that is often resistant to conventional treatment. Within this paper, the qualitative findings from a larger study are presented and 20 participants' experiences of BT, their comparisons with other interventions, and their satisfaction with the therapy are explored. Overwhelmingly, BT was experienced as being gentle, relaxing and non-invasive and of help with significantly eliminating and improving the symptoms associated with frozen shoulder.
