The Original Bowen Technique
Relaxing body work that helps repair
injuries, resolve pain, and soothe stiff
muscles and joints.
What It Is
Bowen is known as the “homeopath of body work”. A body work unlike any other, Bowen applies muscle and connective tissue therapy in a whole body healing approach. Generally, this relaxing technique is applied while the patient is lying down. It utilizes gentle rolling of the muscle and connective tissue with frequent pauses in between. The rolling allows for the resetting of the tissue, while the pauses allow the body to begin to balance itself. Certain sequences address specific problems and relieve stress from problem areas. The moves are gentle, but purposeful, and can be done through light clothing. The work usually results in the relief of many specific injuries and other health problems, both acute and chronic.
What Conditions Does It Work For?
You're probably wondering, "Will Bowenwork help MY condition?" While it can be used on individuals of all ages and in all degrees of health, two factors make it difficult to say:
1. Each person responds differently, at different rates and to different degrees. You will respond according to your own body's ability to heal.
2. Bowenwork addresses the entire body holistically. You may see improvements in conditions that you forgot to mention to your practitioner, even if they are located far from where the practitioner touches you.
In any case, you should know after two or three sessions at most, whether or not the Bowenwork would help in your particular case. As a general rule, many more conditions DO respond positively, more often than not.
