I am often asked what is Bowen and how can it help. Bowen therapy is a type of bodywork that uses thumbs and fingers on precise points to perform a unique set of rolling-type moves that activates nerve bundles below the muscle and soft tissue. By stimulating meridian points in a specific order and with careful pauses in between, it prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself.
It is one of the safest, fastest and most effective modalities for treating pain, chronic illness and improving overall health. It does this by:
Stimulating the superficial fascia which is involved in cellular communication.
Stimulating the local sensory nervous system causing a reflex impulse through the spinal cord to the brain and returning to the location of the stimulated point. This breaks the cycle of dysfunctional repetitive pain loops that are often continuously firing.
Stimulating the blood circulation allowing nutrients and healing factors to arrive at injured tissue increasing healing.
Stimulating lymphatic drainage allowing broken down cellular debris to be removed from the body and reduces swelling.
Bowen can help with conditions such as:
Back pain and sciatica
Earache and TMJ problems
Migraines and other types of headaches
Hip, knee, ankle and foot problems
Neck and shoulder problems (including 'frozen shoulder')
Groin pain, pelvic tilt and uneven leg length
RSI, carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow
Sports and other traumatic injuries
