Bowen Therapy is a gentle yet very effective bodywork treatment for many types of pain and ailments. The positive effects of Bowen Therapy extend beyond the area being treated as it balances and stimulates energy flows, resulting in a deep sense of overall relaxation and wellbeing.
A Bowen Therapy Treatment is a series of moves applied over the whole body designed to release the fascia, the connective tissue of the body.
By releasing the fascia, Bowen Therapy assists the body to return to its natural state of healthy posture allowing muscles, tendons and ligaments to relax into position and function at their best.
It is applied through light clothing, there is no use of oils or any other product.
Through consultation and treatment Bowen Therapy strives to find the origin of a problem and is therefore very effective for musculo-skeletal problems whether recent or long standing.
The body’s response to Bowen Therapy is often profound, usually within one to two treatments, resulting in fast and lasting relief from pain and discomfort.
Some conditions need only one treatment. Acute pain is often relieved within one to three treatments. You may, however, have treatments for relaxation or body maintenance for maximum freedom and fluidity of movement as often as you wish. Some people choose to have treatments on a regular basis for maintenance, others are satisfied to have the problem resolved and only have treatment when there is an issue with their body.
Bowen Therapy creates positive change in the entire body on both a structural and physiological level. For example, a treatment for back pain may also improve circulation in hands and feet and assist the body to deal with fluid retention.
Bowen Therapy is completely non-invasive. There is no use of needles, drugs or machinery. It is safe for everyone including pregnant women, infants, and the elderly.
