Bowen Therapy is a gentle and effective treatment that works on the superficial and deep connective tissue of your body. The health of connective tissue effects the functioning of all the systems of your body. This means that the Bowen Technique offers an extremely effective treatment option not just for muscular aches and pains but also for a variety of complaints through out all body systems.
Bowen Technique is a gentle therapy that does not require deep pressure and can give rapid results with most injuries responding within 2-3 sessions.
During a Bowen therapy treatment subtle moves are made over your muscles and connective tissue. These moves send messages deep into your body not only working on the connective tissue but also, retrieving cellular memory of a more relaxed and balanced well being. There are frequent but essential pauses throughout the treatment that allow your muscles to relax and your body to respond and begin the healing process.
Bowen therapy initiates a cascade of beneficial changes in your body that continue for several days after a treatment, because of this it is generally recommended that you do not receive other forms of body work for at least 4 days after a Bowen therapy session as it may interfere with these changes and limit the effectiveness of your treatment.
Some conditions that respond well to the Bowen technique are:
- Carpal Tunnel
- Back, neck, shoulder pain
- Digestive problems
- Knee pain
- Menstrual pain
- Stress and anxiety
