What is Bowen Therapy?
The Bowen Technique is a gentle form of bodywork which, amongst other things, can be used to treat pain and injury and help alleviate stress.
The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers to perform gentle rolling movements over the muscles, tendons and soft tissue of the body, stimulating the nerve pathways creating a focus for the brain. Each sequence of moves is followed by a short break. The short break allows the body to respond to the gentle moves and make subtle adjustments which can help to rebalance, relieve tension and reduce pain. Bowen therapy is about the body repairing itself, this process of repair can carry on for sometime after the session has finished.
Bowen therapy does not use manipulation. Treatment can be applied directly onto the skin or through loose non-slip clothing.
Although musculoskeletal problems such as frozen shoulders, back and neck pain account for the majority of conditions brought for Bowen treatments, clients have also reported significant improvements with asthma, migraine, irritable bowel and some reproductive problems.
Bowen does not work for everyone but if your body does respond it can start the process of self-repair immediately.
