What is Bowen Therapy?
Bowen therapy offers a non-invasive, holistic approach to pain relief and healing. Bowen therapy was developed by Tom Bowen, who recognized the underlying cause of many musculoskeletal, neurological and other health problems or pain could be found in the soft tissue or fascia. The fascia is the connective fibrous tissues that run throughout the body and surround and protect the muscles.
Bowen therapy uses gentle soft-tissue or fascial-release techniques on specific spots on the body. Forceful manipulation is not used. Instead, Bowen therapy involves a light cross-fibre maneuvering of the muscle or tendon. This works to stimulate the body’s energy and activate its healing capacity. This gives the brain a message to heal a particular area and achieve balance and lasting relief.
The Benefits of Bowen Therapy
Bowen therapy is able to treat a range of acute and chronic conditions and is particularly beneficial for those seeking assistance with mobility issues, physiology, pain relief, stress relief and general wellbeing. These may include:
The main benefit of Bowen therapy lies in the long-term and permanent relief that can be experienced.
What to Expect During a Bowen Therapy Consultation
During a consultation with a Bowen therapist, a detailed patient history will be taken, along with an assessment of the presenting condition. The client will then be required to drink water. This is needed before undergoing Bowen therapy as water will hydrate the body’s tissues and cells and ensure effective fascial release. The therapist will begin a series of gentle movements across the fascia. The practitioner will then leave the body to respond to the treatment and commence its own healing process.
Why Bowen Therapy?
Bowen therapy is a gentle, remedial body technique and is considered beneficial and suitable for people of all ages, from babies to the elderly. Bowen therapy can also produce effective results for a wide range of ailments and conditions.
Bowen therapy is considered a holistic medicine or treatment that considers the whole body and underlying causes rather than just the symptoms. Therefore, Bowen therapy treats the overt symptoms such as pain as well as providing a range of other health benefits such as improved physical and emotional health, increased energy, improved circulation, lymphatic drainage and detoxification, stress relief and more.
