Beat environmental allergies with Bowen
Itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing fits.... Let It Heal has a comprehensive and integrated full-body technique to address these problems.
For most, allergy season brings nothing more than a miserable and tiresome period filled with coughing, sneezing, a runny nose, itchy eyes, and a scratchy throat. But in more severe cases, however, people can experience rashes, breathing trouble, hives, asthma attacks, low blood pressure, and even death.
Environmental allergies are an 'overreaction' of the body's defense system when coming into contact with certain foreign/environmental allergens like pollen, mold spores, dust mites, or pet dander, among others. The irritation causes cells to explode and release histamine when coming into contact with certain foreign/environmental allergens like pollen, mold spores, dust mites, or pet dander, among others. When this happens, the immune system kicks into high gear, causing the many symptoms mentioned above.
You have probably heard of anti-histamines. Although they can be very effective in reducing symptoms of allergies, they don't actually remove histamine from your body or avoid the cellular damage... which actually makes matters worse long term.
Bowen Treatments get to the root of the problem
Bowen Therapy is a comprehensive and integrated full-body technique that is highly effective in treating environmental allergies. A series of 5 weekly Bowen treatments is typically all that's needed to get through allergy season unscathed. And the best part: results are long term and, other than a yearly maintenance treatment, ongoing appointments are not necessary.
Besides allergic reactions, Bowen addresses other respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis, hay fever, sinusitis, even acute conditions like pneumonia and bronchitis. In fact, some Bowen therapists dedicate their entire practice to strictly treating respiratory issues. Here's a link to one of our favourite Bowen sites that treats childhood asthma.
As a noninvasive therapy, the Bowen treatment is safe for everyone, treating the entire body and the cause of the problem, not just alleviating the symptoms.
In short, a typical Bowen therapy session lasts anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes and involves the stimulation of key pressure points on the body. Between the groups of moves, the practitioner will leave the room, allowing your body to react to the treatment, and the brain to regain control over important factors such as immune response and histamine production. It's basically a reboot for your entire nervous system.
In addition to Bowen Therapy, gentle natural medicine may also be taken on a short term basis to alleviate symptoms while supporting the body. Once finished, you will no longer have to take antihistamines - just visit Let it Heal once a year for your annual top-up!
