Bowen therapy is used to treat a variety of ailments
Bowen therapy, is a form of bodywork.
It involves gently stretching the fascia — the soft tissue that covers all your muscles and organs — to promote pain relief.
The Bowen technique is a complementary therapy and not a substitute for medical advice or treatment.
The therapist begins to make rolling movements on the muscles of various parts of my body - ankles, lower back, mid back, shoulders and neck.
After this, she will leave the room and return in a few minutes. She will explain that these gaps are to allow the healing to begin.
Produces feelings of relaxation, removes anxiety
Over time fascia can become sticky or dehydrated, repeated movements at work, or poor posture, or from an accident can cause pain & discomfort.
Bowen re-sets fascia to be free from restriction & therefore pain is reduced.
Fascia is a three-dimensional web, that is ever-flowing and uninterrupted.
It envelopes the entire body, connecting our superficial skin layer to the deepest tissues
When fascia is restricted it has an effect on our complete health, affecting not just muscular and skeletal health, but nerve capacity, gland and organ function and our general well being.
Reduces muscular/joint restriction
Bowen is amazing at easing up knots & tension through deep cellular relaxation.
There is NO forceful manipulation. Bowen ‘asks’ the body to recognise and make the changes it requires and over the week after a treatment, the body responds and readjusts safely according to its needs.
