The Bowen Therapy technique utilises small movements to the body stimulating its own natural resources to heal itself. The therapist delivers signals to the nervous system at specific locations (on muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerve pathways, blood and lymph circulation) which frees up any blockages and reconnections are therefore made which naturally brings about the best rate of healing based on your own body’s resources and level of injury.
It is a gentle therapy that does not require deep pressure, although the pressure is varied for each client. Many clients become very relaxed right away, and often fall asleep during the treatment.
Rapid improvements are very common with Bowen Therapy and most injuries and pain respond in a few sessions. ‘Top up’ treatments are also very beneficial to help keep the body in a state of optimal balance and to prevent re-injury. Many clients usually experience long lasting relief, even from old injuries and often say that they have had faster results than with other therapies, especially on acute injuries.
Bowen Therapy is appropriate to use on everyone including pregnant women, babies, and the elderly and even clients with long term pain. See the Bowtech website for more information.
