How Does Bowen Therapy Work?
There are frequent but essential pauses throughout the session that allow the body time to respond and begin the healing process. The practitioner can target a specific problem or address the body as a whole. The technique addresses not only the musculoskeletal framework, but also the fascia, nerves and internal organs. The body’s integrated response improves circulation and lymphatic drainage and aids the assimilation of nutrients and elimination of toxins.
Bowen Body Mind is a powerful modality which assists the body to release trauma, effortlessly. It is still 'Bowen Therapy' yet only minimal movements are applied to the body with long pauses. The sessions are long with very important breaks, which allow the body to process that which it is ready to let go of. The Trauma video (above right) is a client, hands resting on lap, whom started to organically unravel trauma, her hands were twitching, fingers jumping and hands moving inches in the air. This was probably related to when she was born, (apparently her mother endured a long labour and forceps were used). If you have any queries please feel free to contact me.
Is Bowen Therapy Right For Me?
The original Bowen Technique is very gentle and is considered appropriate for anyone from pregnant women, babies, the frail and the elderly. It can assist recovery from many conditions, from traumatic injury to chronic illness, depending upon each individual’s capacity to heal. No adverse side effects have been reported.
