What is Bowen Therapy?
Bowen moves/techniques are designed to be safe, gentle, and non-invasive. They are practised on acupressure and trigger points with the aim of stimulating the innate healing capacities of the body. Clients often report feeling quite relaxed throughout a treatment, so much so that some fall asleep during a session. Relief is also experienced in areas where treatment wasn’t even sort, and this is due to the fact that Bowen does not just treat the noted symptoms, but the whole body.
How Does Bowen Work?
The body is made up of a number of layers including fascia, tendons, and muscles. All nerves, veins, arteries, and lymph are stored within the fascia of the body. Fascia is the mould that holds the body together. If the fascia is compromised, then so are the main organs and systems of the body. Bowen moves work on specific areas to penetrate the different layers of the body, freeing up fascia allowing the body to heal itself, and release tension. Bowen stimulates receptors in the body to correct dysfunction and restore homeostasis on a holistic level.
