Bowen is a soft tissue therapy, that uses gentle rolling type movements to stimulate the brain to correct problems.
A series of small moves made with thumbs and fingers, trigger a response in your tissue and nervous system to help release areas of tension or imbalance. Specific moves are made over areas of muscle, tendon, ligament and other connective tissues using the amount of pressure appropriate to the individual. It does not involve hard adjustments or pushing tissue around like a massage and is therefore gentle and relaxing to receive.
Bowen can make a major difference for people with muscular and skeletal problems such as aches and pains, however it can also help with other problems such as asthma, headaches, stress, IBS and hay-fever. It is common for longstanding problems to be helped in just a few sessions. See how this effective therapy can help you here.
Bowen Therapy has a strong record of success in the treatment of back pain. A national study, carried out by The Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA) in 2006, showed that 95 per cent of back pain sufferers experienced either complete relief or a marked improvement, after a series of no more than three Bowen treatments.
