How Does Bowen Therapy Work?
A treatment consists of a series of gentle rolling moves with frequent pauses between moves giving the body time to benefit from each set. Practitioners treat the body as a whole or can target a specific problem, as they are able to pinpoint stress buildup in muscle groups and then release it.
The Bowen Technique both balances and stimulates – the restorative process beginning once the body is relaxed.
It’s referred to as ‘complementary’ – meaning it will enhance and complement other medical treatments. However, it should be noted that receiving other manipulative therapies immediately following a Bowen session can undermine the effectiveness of the Bowen work. Your therapist will suggest you wait a couple of weeks before trying other therapies.
Bowen is Holistic
The Bowen Technique is perhaps one of the single most important tools we have to help heal the body. The moves produce good results by penetrating to a deep cellular level – making use of the body’s own ability to heal itself. Moves begin to achieve holistic balance straight away, embracing the client’s physical and emotional aspects.
Bowen Therapy is not a cure all therapy.
