Bowen Therapy aim to treat the body as a whole. The Bowen technique is an alternative form of bodywork that utilises gentle rolling motions to help heal muscles and tendons and address pain.
We offer Bowen Therapy in our Chermside & Cannon Hill clinics.
Bowen Therapy is a gentle non-invasive, hands-on therapy which can be highly effective on acute and chronic conditions for athletes and all people with musculoskeletal and nervous system concerns. A series of small specific ‘rolling’ moves over key muscles and tendons assist your body to return to its balanced state of being pain-free and relaxed. Your body knows what it needs to do to heal itself, Bowen Therapy initiates this process.
Our muscles are surrounded and permeated with a weblike structure called ‘fascia’ which essentially holds our muscles and skeleton together. The ‘rolling’ Bowen moves signal the fascia to return to their original relaxed state and thus the muscle is returned as well. Bowen Therapy works on our nervous system by promoting the ‘parasympathetic’ (rest and digestion) aspect of our Autonomic nervous system – thus further promoting a relaxed body and mind to achieve Homeostasis (the bodies ability to heal itself).
Bowen Therapy Brisbane is suitable for absolutely anyone and is completely safe for newborn babies through to the elderly and continues to be profoundly effective on athletes as well. The best ‘Bowen moves’ are performed directly on the skin, however modest and professional draping of clients is practised. Bowen Therapy can also be performed through light clothing (not heavy cottons or lycra). Your Bowen Therapist will work with what is comfortable for you.
