Bowen Therapy Description

Bowen therapy is a gentle form of body work, that is highly effective and safe for everyone, including newborns to the elderly, pregnant, nursing, athlete sports injuries, accident victims, anyone experiencing pain or any condition not getting better!
Bowen Therapy is a manual, hands on therapy, applied to tight muscle groups, with specific procedures. There are pauses between each procedure to allow the muscles to respond and unravel. The technique acts upon the fascia and the nervous system to address the root cause of musculoskeletal and neurological pain, as well as many other ailments.
Problem areas may be quite tender, but the moves are light and quick, like plucking a guitar string. The Bowen procedures generate neurological impulses, which trigger the brain and nervous system to relax muscles, tendons, ligaments, releasing pinched nerves, tension and stress. What follows is a heating up or cooking feeling, which disperses the inflammation out of the body, followed by relief of pain. This relief is long lasting, because the body has self adjusted without forceful encouragement. This can happen immediately or take up to three days. With walking and plenty of water, the response to the Bowen dissipates quickly and allows the body to improve in strength and stamina without pain. I noticed most results occur after the 2nd treatment. Treatment for one issue, can help balance and improve the health of the entire body. There is a Bowen Procedure for every part of the body. So depending on where you are having problems, that’s where I focus with the Bowen. Each person receives a customized set of procedures which would be modified each visit. I am able to work on many different issues within one treatment session. Bowen Therapy turns off pain and inflammation. It is best to avoid heat/cold therapy during Bowen, walk daily & drink water.
Bowen Therapy works because it helps realign the body back into balance thru the muscular and nervous systems. If all muscular imbalances could be released, the whole body would regulate itself and in this process, pain and symptoms would vanish and energy levels would increase. Bowen Therapy introduces a state of ease and well-being. Kind of like a factory reset of all your muscles.
Bowen Therapy is a cost effective pain treatment, because most problems improve by 75% or more within 3 treatments! Clients have found the Bowen Therapy less painful than other types of bodywork. Clients have said that it provides lasting relief, more so than any other non drug therapy treatment. Clients have said PAIN will move from one side of the body to the other and dissipate. Clients have said they feel much cooler since having Bowen. I notice after one or two procedures of Bowen, the body lies flatter and more comfortable on the table. Bowen Therapy has helped with scoliosis and hip misalignment right before my own eyes!
