WHAT IS BOWEN THERAPY?
Bowen therapy, is a highly effective, drug-free therapy for pain relief and general health maintenance. This natural, gentle form of bodywork was created over 50 years ago and is now practised worldwide. Bowen acts upon the fascia and nervous system to address the root cause of musculoskeletal and neurological pain as well as other ailments.
Bowen therapy is completely non-invasive. No needles, drugs, nor machines are required. It is safe for everyone from newborns to the elderly including expectant mothers and athletes. Treatments are relaxing and for the most part, performed over clothing
A bowen treatment involves a series of short, gentle moves applied with the hands to very specific points on the body. Each set of moves is interspersed with crucial pauses to allow the body time to respond to the treatment. The bowen moves generate neurological impulses which trigger the brain and nervous system to relax muscles, tendons and ligaments, releasing pinched nerves, tension and stress. The autonomic nervous system and endocrine systems are rebalanced and lymphatic drainage initialized.
Bowen therapy is very distinct and differs from other forms of therapy in that:
no oils, lotions, machines or drugs are used
there is no need to have clients undress - treatments can be administered through clothing
