Bowen is a holistic, powerful, and innovative soft tissue therapy. It works on Fascia, a connective tissue that envelops and as the word says, connects everything in the body. Bowen therapy’s very specific and precise moves will release your deep tension, revitalize energy and bring you back into balance.
Treatment is very gentle, relaxing, involving no manipulation or massage.
It consists of a series of very precise, firm but gentle rolling moves over the muscles, tendons, and ligaments stimulating the nervous system to release tension in the soft tissue.
Muscles that hold our bodies in correct alignment can sometimes be compromised by either our bad posture, emotional trauma, or prolonged stress or injury. Bowen Therapy is a holistic treatment, meaning addressing the body as a whole and not only focusing on the condition or the symptoms presented. Bowen rolling moves are stimulating the body's own healing powers to restore and rebalance our ‘ lost connection with the whole”. Many clients report improvement of function, more energy, and pain relief.
Restore and Rebalance
Some of the conditions that respond well to Bowen are:
Migraine and Headache
For any healing to happen our body needs to make a shift from sympathetic or stress to a parasympathetic or relaxed state and for this to happen it needs time and space to literally unwind and digest physical and emotional stress.
And this is exactly what Bowen does.
Bowen treatment will last between 30-60 min. Your session can be performed through loose light clothing mostly in a laying position although some prefer to work directly on the skin. Your first treatment will also include full consultation with body assessment. Treatment is usually given when you are lying down, with an initial session addressing the whole body, including the lower and mid-back, the legs, the upper back and shoulders, and finally the neck.
A three to four treatments, in general, is usually suggested with a 7 days break in between each session to allow the body enough time to absorb and make required changes.
Less is more is general guidance in Bowen so you will experience the truly powerful and transformative power of the gentle touch.
My teacher J. Baker, when often asked, how such gentle and small moves can make any profound difference, always wonderfully mentioned a picture of a pin and a balloon. “The more tension you build into a structure, the less pressure you need to apply to change it. If I stood in front of someone wearing a shirt and twisted the left-hand corner of it, you would see the material stretching. That’s where the tension is, and it would feel uncomfortable. All I need to do to release the tension is unwind that twisting.”
Post-session advice is explained and given after each session and no other manipulative therapy should be undertaken while receiving Bowen.
