Bowen therapy involves a series of gentle moves on certain points over our muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves which sends signals through our body via the fascia (the web-like connective tissue which joins our bones, muscles, tendons and nerves and which also encases our organs).
Because the fascial (connective tissue) system interacts with the muscoskeletal, vascular, nervous and lymphatic systems, Bowen therapy can help with a wide variety of conditions. By focusing on treating the fascia, all these systems will potentially be self-regulating and restored by returning the body’s fascia to its original length, strength and function.
