Bowen Therapy

Returning your body to homeostastis

The Bowen Technique

Mostly, Bowen moves involve taking skin slack, applying a challenge (or gentle push) for a few seconds, then a slow steady move over the structure being addressed.  Slow moves over these structures have a lowering effect on the sympathetic nervous system and induce a profound sense of relaxation helping the body return to homeostasis.
The type of move used in Bowen also assists the hydration of fascia, which in turn encourages better vascular and nerve supply. Bowen therapy is normally performed on a table but can be done seated or standing and I’ve even done it in a pool.
During the session, some patients will experience sensations, such as tingling, buzzing, heat, cold, heaviness or lightness. If any pain is experienced after treatment it will generally be within 48 hours of treatment and then it will be resolved.

A brisk walk after treatment can help improve circulation to areas worked on and keep inflammation down otherwise an anti-inflammatory before bed can help.
