Bowen is a comprehensive remedial body technique that works on the soft connective tissue (muscle and fascia) of the body. Bowen therapy can be used to treat musculoskeletal or related neurological problems including acute sports injuries and chronic or organic conditions. It is gentle and relaxing and does not use forceful manipulation.
Bowen therapy is performed on the superficial and deep muscles and connective tissue.
A Bowen treatment consists of sequences of small moves, each at a specific site on the body. It can be done through light clothing.
The Bowen technique is safe to use on anyone, from newborns to the elderly and for any musculoskeletal or related neuromuscular complaint. It is a holistic treatment that treats the whole person and aims to treat the cause of problems, rather than the symptoms.
A treatment will typically last between 30 minutes and one hour. It can be provided through alayer of light clothing, although you may be asked to remove heavy or thick garments.
During this time, the therapist may leave the roomfor periods of two to five minutes at a time. This allows time for your body to respond to the treatment and for the necessary changes to occur in your body before commencing the next sequence of moves.
Bowen treatment is not a massage, but a gentle therapy which works on realigning our whole body and can benefit:
– body aches and pains.
– stress, sleep problems.
– adrenals and lymphatic system.
– digestion issues
