Bowen Therapy

What is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen Therapy is a soft tissue technique which consists of specific moves over muscles, tendons and ligaments with the purpose of re-hydrating the fascia (connective tissue) throughout the body. Working on trigger points and acupuncture points assists with promoting healing within the body.

Bowen can assist with a variety of conditions to include:

  • Injuries (new and old)
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Sciatica
  • Back pain during pregnancy
  • Joint pain
  • Migraines
  • Hay fever
  • RSI / Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
  • Sporting injuries
  • Ideal for athletes to maintain peak condition

Bowen is a gentle therapy and some clients may fall asleep during a treatment. However, there are moves over trigger points, so some discomfort may be felt.

People

  • Drink plenty of water every day. This is needed to re-hydrate the fascia throughout the body and will assist with providing a better outcome and longer lasting effects of the treatment (water is important to dilute toxins within the body)
  • Gentle exercise each day
  • Don’t sit for too long. Get up every 30 minutes or so, walk around and stretch your legs (movement assists with flushing the toxins out of the body)
  • Warm shower/bath NOT hot
  • Refrain from having other therapies until at least seven days later, this includes a further Bowen session

Pets

  • Ensure your pet has plenty of fresh drinking water available at all times and encourage them to drink. This is needed to re-hydrate the fascia throughout the body and will assist with providing a better outcome and longer lasting effects of the treatment (water is important to dilute toxins within the body)
  • Gentle and restricted exercise (on a lead) for 20 – 30 minutes each day for at least three days afterwards (movement assists with flushing the toxins out of the body)
  • Ensure a warm, comfortable bed is available (preferably lifted off the ground and away from any draughts or vents)
  • Ensure their collar, harness, halter or coat fits properly and isn’t too tight
  • Refrain from having other therapies until at least seven days later, this includes a further Bowen session
