Is Your Body in Bowen Therapy Balance?
You’re probably aware that the body has its own innate healing mechanism. When the body is feeling stuck with inflammation and pain, Bowen can stimulate the system to wake it up and get the body moving again. This is a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy that is so gentle it can be performed on babies and the elderly.
Subtle moves are performed to stimulate the body into healing itself. These adjustments are done at specific locations and deliver a signal to the nervous system via the fascia, and the body then responds. This allows the fascial release which enhances strength, improves flexibility, postural and movement awareness. Oh and I mustn’t forget to mention the improvement in your sense of well-being, and feelings of relaxation and contentment.
The result is a feeling of balance and freedom of movement!
So if you’ve been searching for an experienced Bowen therapist on the Sunshine Coast, you’ll find my clinic in Palmwoods. I’ve been practising Bowen for over 18 years now, and I still love it as much today as when I first started. I feel grateful seeing clients get off the table with an immediate result. It can be as small as you feeling immensely relaxed. It could be that you have the sensation of being straighter and taller. Even better, you can feel relief from the nagging pain you’ve been hanging on to for far too long!
Bowen really is a versatile therapy that helps the body to relax, recharge and realign. That way it’s very effective for so many musculoskeletal problems such as pain, stiffness, aching, tight muscles, pulled ligaments, frozen shoulder, sports injuries and the list goes on…
It quickly addresses these acute issues by reducing the inflammation which would normally lead to pain, over a couple of sessions. Chronic, constant or recurring pain and discomfort are managed through regular treatments over a longer term.
I had a history of chronic headaches until I discovered the Bowen technique, and it literally gave me back my joy in life. It’s so effective in alleviating the underlying issues of head and neck pain, and efficient in removing the tendency to continual headaches and migraine.
If you are you suffering with chronic or acute pain due to headaches or migraine, Bowen could be just what you need! If you are you unsure what is causing your head pain, here’s a good description of a migraine and to compare, an overview of headaches.
These days we are seeing an increase in technology related conditions such as Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, RSI, headaches, upper body tension and poor posture. Having the head in a forward resting position is throwing out the natural alignment of our spines leading to dysfunction and pain.
If this continues then degeneration and disc issues are on the cards. Other issues occurring from being seated for long periods of time, are Back pain, Sciatica and Piriformis syndrome – that nagging pain in the butt that doesn’t go away! Tom Bowen may have created this therapy 50 years ago before technology was so prevalent, but Bowen is timeless in the treatment of todays computer age problems as well. Regular Bowen sessions will keep you moving freely and without tension and pain!
