Bowen Therapy is a gentle hands on healing modality that triggers the body's innate ability to heal itself. Through systematic and precise "moves" made over soft tissue (muscles, tendons, fascia etc.), the brain receives information from the receptors found there. This stimulates a response from the body in the form of correcting dysfunctions that may exist and restoring balance to the various systems controlled by the Autonomic Nervous System. In doing so, the body is able to make changes it deems necessary in order to restore itself to a more optimal state. In other words, YOUR BODY makes its own changes, they are not imposed by the therapist; the therapist is merely the catalyst.
Typically, 3-5 sessions will be a good indication of whether your body is responsive to Bowen therapy; once the changes have been made for your particular condition, there should be no need for "maintenance" although some people enjoy the decreased stress and anxiety benefits of Bowen so they choose to continue on a regular basis.
Bowen is helpful for both acute and chronic conditions and is suitable for people of all ages and levels of mobility.
