Bowen Therapy is a gentle, non-manipulative technique that can be applied to treat a broad range of physical ailments, including muscular, structural and visceral (internal) complaints.
Treatment aims to stimulate the nervous system and body to begin a process of healing, repair and rejuvenation. Most people experience a deep sense of relaxation during treatment and are often amazed at the effects they experience.
Gentle “rolling”, cross-fibre moves are applied on very specific points on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments, initiating relaxation of the muscles, flexibility of the fascia (connective tissue surrounding most structures of the body), and increased circulation of blood, lymph and energy.
Bowen Therapy is safe and can be applied to everyone, including frail, elderly people and very young babies.
