Bowen Therapy is extremely effective in providing long-term relief for many types of pain. We treat sciatica, back pain, shoulder issues, knee pain, neck pain, migraines, hormonal issues, TMJ dysfunction, even anxiety, asthma and bedwetting in children.
It's a fairly gentle treatment that taps into the central nervous system, resulting in a full-body reboot. We use our hands to perform a series of movements over soft tissue, with a focus on the fascia. These precisely placed movements, combined with carefully timed pauses, engage the parasympathetic nervous system and re-establish communication between dysfunctional tissue and the brain. It's kind of like we are actually giving the brain instructions to reset muscle tension, increase oxygen flow, re-absorb cellular debris, regulate blood flow, improve lymphatic circulation and whatever else needs to be done.
Improvement can often be felt immediately, but in some cases it may take a day or two. We typically give the body 5-10 days after each treatment to allow for full integration, during which we advise our clients to avoid other treatments, drink plenty of water and take a short walk each day.
