What exactly is Bowen Technique therapy? Bowen uses a sequence of small gentle moves, at very specific points on the body to release trigger points and energy points on the body. This technique will more often than not give patients great relief just after the first session and may experience emotional and energy shifts.
Bowen is very gentle and non-invasive. Great for pains, strains and injuries where you want to try a more gentle approach which can often lead to satisfying results.
Bowen therapy is safe to use when other therapies are not recommended, including severe muscle spasms, fresh bruising, and inflammation. It is also safe to be used as part of a treatment strategy for debilitating degenerative ailments such as Parkinson’s and MS.
How does Bowen therapy work?
Often described as the homeopathy of bodywork, Bowen Therapy creates harmony and balance in the body by sending neurological impulses to the brain, resulting in muscle relaxation, reducing pain and may result in a return to the normal movement in the joints, muscles and tendons.
A gentle yet dynamic remedial type of therapy that helps the body heal itself. The technique involves rolling moves set in a series of sequences which lift the skin over muscles, tendons and ligaments to disturb the fascia or connective tissue in order to bring about re-alignment and a reduction of nerve pressure, thus paving the way back to health and well-being.
Bowen therapy may facilitate the balancing of a broad range of conditions. It may address any problem as the treatment is holistic. It may produce an integrated body response, and consequently improves circulation, lymphatic and venous draining, assimilation of nutrients and elimination of toxins, joint mobility, posture, clearance of dysfunctional debris, normalisation of cellular physiology and tissue integrity.
Bowen is not an ongoing therapy. In most cases, the recipient can expect substantial relief after just the first session and complete recovery over several sessions, depending on what the condition is.
