Remember the commercial with the owl and the tootsie pop?
How many licks will it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? Can you believe that they actually figured it out? Mathematicians at New York University have actually figured out the answer. And to dissolve one centimeter of hard candy per lick it should take approximately 1000 licks. My goal with Bowen is to be more productive that. I am often asked, “how many sessions do I need”… “how long will this take?”. Everyone is unique in their healing process AND it depends on how long the injury or condition has been around. But my standard approach is that I recommend 3 treatments spaced one week apart. Many times conditions improve in 3-5 sessions. And then after that we work together to figure out the best maintenance schedule for your needs. For more chronic conditions and when addressing anxiety, stress, and trauma, there may need to be more sessions and may require more frequent maintenance. Again, we work together to figure out what is best for you. Typically, once conditions are resolved, maintenance session frequency can be anywhere from every 4-6 weeks to once every 3 months.
