Bowen therapy is a holistic and multi-dimensional approach to pain relief and healing. It is based on the theory that underlying cause of various health problems are found in the soft tissue or fascia. Fascia is a specific type of connective tissue that forms a three dimensional web surrounding every tissue in the body. The fascia is rich in a range of receptors that powerfully influence the body’s neuro-muscular physiology in many ways.
The technique itself consists of gentle rolling (connective tissue) moves on the skin or through light clothing. It stimulates specific receptors that enable the body to correct dysfunctions and restore homeostasis (balance). Frequent pauses, usually 2 minutes is allowed between moves to give the body time to respond and integrate what has been done. Bowen therapy can result in a deep sense of relaxation allowing the body to reset, recharge and balance itself.
A session last from half an hour to an hour.
