What is Bowen Technique?
Bowen Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, non-manipulative treatment performed over muscles and connective tissue. These moves (the technique) send messages deep into the body retrieving cellular memory, assisting the body’s unique ability to heal itself. Bowen can have remarkable results with long lasting pain relief.
How does it work?
A registered practitioner uses a technique where thumbs and fingers are gently rolled over muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves, sending electrical impulses through the nervous system to the brain.
Regular pauses allow the body to absorb and benefit from each set of moves. Blood flow is stimulated, lymphatic circulation and drainage occur, inflammation is reduced. Blockages are freed, reconnections are made and muscles are restored back to their natural resting position, rebalancing the body.
While many clients experience immediate pain relief, full improvement can take from two to ten days.
Can I use other therapies?
Avoid other physical therapies for at least 48 hours. A Bowen therapy session initiates many beneficial changes that continue for several days. Applying other manipulative therapies during this time can interrupt this process and undermine the overall effectiveness of Bowen therapy. It is therefore recommended that the client wait a week before commencing any other therapy.
For your first appointment
Drink plenty of water before and afterwards. While there is no need to remove clothing during treatment, it will be more comfortable if you wear something lightweight and loose fitting. In our first appointment we like to ask a few questions about your medical history to tailor a treatment that is holistic and personalised for you.
