As a complimentary or holistic therapy, the Bowen technique is a gentle and stimulating therapy that can improve mobility and help many conditions ranging from sports injuries to long standing medical conditions.

The Bowen technique is thought to help with both physical and emotional issues and may improve circulation and lymphatic drainage without any vigorous manipulation.

What happens when you have treatment using the Bowen technique?

A treatment will comprise of a series of gentle rolling moves which have frequent pauses between them allowing the body time to benefit from each set. The practitioner will treat your body as a whole or could target a specific medical problem as they pin-point stress build up in muscle groups and then release it.

As this holistic therapy both balances and stimulates, the restorative process begins as the body relaxes.

Scientific Research

Scientific research is ongoing – there have been several studies into the work on Frozen Shoulders, with positive results. Some research has shown that stretches of fascia produce small electrical charges and other neurological research has shown that the brain has areas of “body maps”, which contain your personal “blueprint”. It is believed that the sequences of Bowen moves stimulate the body to repair itself to the blueprint.

Also interesting is that blood tests before and after a treatment have revealed raised levels of chemical activity after the treatment and for all body systems to show a marked improvement in function. Some heart rate studies have shown rapid normalizing of fluctuating rhythms with clients commonly reporting sustained lower stress levels and a feeling of well-being.

A complementary or holistic therapy.

As the Bowen technique is a complementary or holistic therapy this means that is will complement or enhance traditional medical treatments rather than replace them. It is always recommended that you consult your GP for any health concerns.
