HOW IT WORKS
Bowen Therapy is a gentle yet incredibly efficient hands-on therapy that can positively stimulate the body to heal very quickly. While supporting the body as a whole it addresses the underlying physical, chemical, emotional and mental causes of chronic and acute illness. Whether you are in pain from an injury, suffer from a chronic condition, want a tune-up for a sports competition or just rejuvenate physically and mentally, Bowen Therapy can support your needs.
Each session typically involves a series of gentle rolling motions along the muscles, tendons, and fascia. Bowen is unique in that it involves minimal physical intervention and between each set of moves 2-5 minute pauses are incorporated in the treatment. These pauses allow the body to "reset". This "reset" helps to restore balance via the autonomic nervous system which controls over 80% of the bodily functions. The healing process is stimulated by activating or calming the nervous and endocrine systems promoting detoxification, lymphatic drainage and stimulation of the immune system. The fascia is addressed by loosening up adhesions, scar tissue and improving hydration.
WHAT TO EXPECT
After a brief consultation you will be invited to lie down on a massage table. Moves can be done through thin and loose clothing. It's recommended to drink some water before the session as effective fascial release requires the adequate hydration of cells and tissues.
Many issues are resolved within 3-5 sessions but some complex conditions can take longer. It is recommended to do the first 3 sessions within 4 weeks, 7-10 days apart.
Every body is different, so response will be unique to each individual but most feel a deep sense of relaxation. The session itself is just the beginning and you can expect the body to keep processing 3-10 days following your treatment. Some patients can feel worse before feeling better and this simply means change is taking place. A gentle walk or swim can help to integrate the work.
• Stay hydrated. Drink water to help flush out toxins and to lubricate the body.
• A gentle 30 minute walk or swim each day is recommended.
• Avoid other hands on therapies while Bowen is being integrated into the body. Partly to in order to learn the effect of each and also to avoid overwhelming the body. Avoid any self-applied physical therapy.
• Avoid sitting for too long and make sure you get up and walk a few steps. This includes when driving - stop and walk around or run an errand.
• Be mindful when sitting and standing that your weight is evenly distributed as to not place strain unevenly in your lower limbs, low back or hips.
• Heavy exercise should be avoided immediately after Bowen. Walking or swimming is ideal. For athletes try and limit as much as possible exerting the areas of concern that have received treatment to allow for healing time.
• Avoid anything really hot or cold on the body such as heating pads, hot tubs or ice packs. A brief, warm shower is acceptable.
HISTORY OF BOWEN
Tom Bowen (1916-1982) started developing the Bowen Technique in the 1950s in Geelong, Australia. After serving in World War II he became interested in ways to alleviate human suffering. Even though Mr. Bowen had no formal healthcare training, he had a unique awareness of how certain moves on the body could result in particular effects. Over the years he refined the effectiveness of his observations. It is reported that he performed 13,000 treatments in a year with an 80% success rate. Mr. Bowen passed on what he had learned to six practitioners and now Bowen is practiced in more than 40 countries. He always stated that the therapy was simply 'A gift from God".
... After my second session things were significantly improved and from then on I was well on the path to full recovery. I wholeheartedly recommend the Bowen technique... - Sheila Elliott
