What is the Bowen technique?
The Bowen technique (also known as Bowenwork) is a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy. It is sometimes called the "homeopathy of bodywork". It utilizes small but measured inputs to the body stimulating the body to heal itself, often profoundly. The Bowen technique offers tremendous benefit to clients with very little part on the practitioner.
Bowtech -the Original Bowen Technique usually results in the relief of many specific injuries and other health problems, both acute and chronic. It does so holistically, by using the body's innate healing mechanisms. The practitioner delivers signals to the nervous system at specific locations (on muscles, tendons, ligaments, or nerves), and the body does the rest, responding in its own time, as it is able. While there are a few, specific situations in which a particular procedure is contraindicated, the Bowen technique is appropriate to use for individuals of all ages and in all degrees of health.
Bowen Therapy helps the body remember how to heal itself. The gentle Bowen movements send neurological impulses to the brain resulting in immediate responses of muscle relaxation & pain relief.
