Massage and Relaxation Therapies
Bowen Therapy is a form of body therapy, however is quite different to massage. The therapy involves mostly gentle moves at specific points of the body delivered in sequences with several pauses throughout. It works mainly at the level of the fascia which is the connective tissue between the skin and muscle. Bowen Therapy assists the body in healing itself, and its work continues for at least 48 hours after the treatment is given. It assists with a wide range of health complaints and can improve body posture as well as general feelings of wellness. Bowen Therapy is a Remedial Therapy, and particular concerns can be addressed. An after care plan is given which when followed provides the maximum benefit available from the treatment.
