The Bowen Technique treatment protocol is very well worked out in its effect on the whole body. For instance, probably the most common presentation for a Bowen therapist will be back pain. With Bowen we will tend to give a whole-body treatment at the first visit, which includes the neck, knees and shoulders because it is often very difficult to be completely sure where any given pain is coming from and to know how other structures are being affected by the original problem, Bowen’s holistic way of treating will most often get to the root of problems gently and efficiently.
Bowen is a gentle treatment that works on the Autonomic Nerve system to help the body to heal its self through gently manipulating the fascia.
Since the main goal of the technique is to stimulate the body to engage its own self healing mechanism it can be used effectively to reduce rehabilitation time after any illness, surgery or injury regardless of how old or recent they may be and may help a range of conditions from muscular problems to respiratory problems, hormone imbalance and menopause symptoms,including reducing flushing and sweats.
