What is the Bowen Therapy?
It is a completely natural and gentle hands-on therapy. This method does not believe in painful, forceful and aggressive manipulation.
Bowen works through the nerves in the fascia to instigate a reaction to stimulate the body’s ability to self-heal and regulate.
Gentle specific moves are performed over the fascia in various sets of muscles, ligaments and tendons in the body. There are a few minute pauses between each set where the therapist will withdraw. This enables the brain to register the moves without distraction.
In some cases, a response can be felt during the session in the form of gentle sensations in the body. The treatment continues to work for up to seven to ten days.
Bowen Therapy is named after its founder the late Tom Bowen. He discovered that making small and gentle movements on the body’s strategic points generated an integrated holistic healing response.
Due to its gentle nature, it is suitable for all, from newborn babies, children, pre and postnatal women, through to the elderly.
Some of the conditions that have shown good results with Bowen include Musculoskeletal injuries and misalignments, back and neck problems, asthma, anxiety, RSI injuries, sports injuries, frozen shoulder, Knee and hip restrictions, clicking jaw, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, P.S.D., fibromyalgia, trapped nerves, and misalignments etc…
