Bowen moves stimulate the whole body to heal itself. In exactly the same way as a cut is healed by the body itself. The body wants to be balanced (homeostasis) in muscle tension, nerves, skeletal, endocrine (hormones) lymphatic (immune) and cellular level. Bowen moves can target specific points on the body that initiate communication with the brain (integration) to the areas being addressed. A full medical history will be taken, this is why a consultation prior to the first treatment is important and necessary.
What is Bowen Therapy?
The Bowen Technique is a non-invasive, holistic, complementary therapy, performed through light loose clothing, with gentle rolling moves at specific points on the body, either lying or sitting. There are periods of waiting in between moves to allow the body to integrate. Most people say it is very relaxing and some fall asleep during the treatment. During Bowen the body shifts into a state of relax and repair (parasympathetic) allowing the body to heal. The amount of treatments depends from person to person and are spaced out at weekly intervals.
