Why Bowen Therapy Works!
Many of us have heard of or experienced Bowen Therapy, and it is quickly becoming recognized worldwide as a powerful but gentle method of restoring wellness to the body and mind.
What happens in the body during a Bowen treatment?
When a Bowen move is performed it lifts the muscle out of its bed, allowing access to the connective tissue or fascia underneath. This connective tissue does much more than hold everything together, it provides structure in much the same way as plants stand tall without the use of bones. When this fascia becomes dehydrated or damaged it leads to physiological and physical problems such as reduced range of movement, stiffness, inflammation and pain. Bowen improves body fluid (Blood & lymph) to the area, allowing restoration of function by rehydration and allowing nutrients in for repair and waste removal.
Many people in today’s fast paced world are in a state of constant stress, their bodies and minds in overdrive. This stressed state reduces digestive function, nutrient absorption and assimilation and healing capabilities along with other familiar symptoms such as poor sleep. Bowen acts directly on nerve fibres to reset the balance to the nervous system to bring about homeostasis and restore these vital body functions.
Latest research shows that many Bowen moves correlate with the points used in the Traditional Chinese Medicine system, or the meridians. These meridians govern our energy flow and work to create harmony physically, emotionally and mentally. Bowen helps correct disturbances in the meridians and can encourage emotional wellbeing along with its actions on the musculoskeletal, and nervous systems, Bowen is truly a holistic therapy.
About Sonya Barratt
I am a qualified in Smart Bowen Therapy, which incorporates skillful application of Bowen moves plus a powerful lymphatic drainage technique. I am registered with the Bowen Therapists Federation of Australia.
Bowen Therapy is a gentle soft tissue rolling and stretching technique. Bowen moves are performed through light clothing over precise points on the body to release muscles and stimulate the healing ability within the body. It is safe and effective for everyone from newborns to the elderly as treatments are tailored to each individual client to achieve the best results possible. Bowen therapy is quickly becoming recognized worldwide as a powerful method of restoring wellness to many people.
Smart Bowen Therapy also incorporates a powerful lymphatic drainage technique that is useful for congestion, detoxification and swelling. It is extremely gentle and relaxing.
After 2 -3 treatments, many people experience relief from sleeping difficulties, muscular aches and pain, hormonal disturbances, digestive problems, back pain, headaches, poor circulation, lymphatic congestion and a wide range of other complaints. Some conditions may require more treatments. Many clients report feeling less stressed, more energetic and happier within themselves.
I found Bowen helped me in an overall way as well as in specific ways. I had a very tight back, shoulders and neck from carrying around a heavy baby, and nil libido (also from said baby) After having just one Bowen treatment the tightness eased, and my libido returned (my husband was very happy). While I didn't think I was the type of person to get stressed, I also noticed that I felt much calmer and more focused, and that my body was working better. My Bowen therapist, Sonya Barratt, has a special touch. I've had many massages which were nice, but it felt like the masseuse was just going through the motions while their mind was somewhere else. My sessions with Sonya felt completely different and that she was really connecting with the right spots and listening to my body, and adjusting the treatment to suit me.
To whom it may concern
For some years now I have been unable to squat down fully with ease. In my work as a store man this ability is vitally important to avoid back damage when lifting heavy objects. Over the years I have tried massage, physiotherapy and a number of other treatments without any lasting degree of success.
Through word of mouth and a bit of research I had heard that Bowen therapy might free up the muscle tissue in a different and pain free way to massage and other therapies I had tried previously. After several Bowen Therapy treatments by Sonya Barratt I find it easier to go up and down stairs and my ability to squat has improved a good deal. I would certainly recommend this therapy and Sonya’s professionalism to others.
