What is Bowen Therapy?
Bowen is a gentle and powerful manual body therapy suitable for infants to the elderly. It provides profound relaxation and treatment to relieve wide variety of physical complaints from aches and pains in the muscles and joints through to headaches, respiratory, digestive, and reproductive issues.
The therapist makes gentle cross fibre moves on the body predominantly across muscles but sometimes also ligaments, tendons and nerve bundles which sends messages to the brain via the nervous system telling the Body to “Rest and Reset”
How can it help?
Bowen Therapy focuses on changing the nervous system from the Flight or Fright mode (sympathetic) to the Rest and Repair Mode (parasympathetic). Releasing muscle tension in this way helps to restore symmetry within the body, to reduce pain, improve circulation and organ function and improve mobility.
These moves are performed on specific areas on the body depending on the presenting conditions and functional assessment results. The Bowen moves are performed through loose clothing and while on a massage treatment table. If mobility is an issue, sessions can also be performed while in seated in a chair.
