Bowen Therapy is a gentle non-invasive “hands-on” modality consisting of a series of gentle moves on the skin (or through light clothing) generally while the client is lying down
Bowen Therapy taps into the root cause at the musculoskeletal, neurological, and neuromuscular level, down to the soft tissue where pain and inflammation can reside.
Bowen Therapy addresses the whole body with the aim to reset our autonomic nervous system (ANS) as a whole. It shifts the body from its fight/flight/freeze stress response, into a rest/relax/repair phase.
Did you know that over 80% of our body functions are controlled by our autonomic nervous system (ANS) and because we live today in a constant state of high stress our ANS is working overtime?
We hardly give our bodies the time to rebalance and heal, because healing only occurs in the rest/relax/repair phase.
Bowen Therapy brings about deep relaxation and rebalancing of muscles and nervous system, allowing the body to relax, release stress and tension as well as release toxic build-up.
Bowen Therapy directly affects the nervous system. The gentle moves allows the body to drop into the parasympathetic nervous state (PNS) – the rest and digest phase, easing any pain or inflammation experienced within the body to be managed
Bowen Therapy is therefore well suited for clients who cannot tolerate deep-tissue bodywork, such as, fragile or elderly people, babies, and children, or patients with chronic pain such as fibromyalgia.
