What does Bowen help with…?
What responds well to the Bowen Technique? In short, almost everything can respond well to Bowen treatment and this is why:
The Bowen Technique is a non-intrusive complementary hands-on therapy. The technique is based on the theory that gentle moves over precise points of the body can prompt the body’s innate ability to relieve pain, restriction and imbalance without the need for deep, manipulative or forceful treatment. Bowen practitioners work holistically with their clients and expect to work alongside allopathic health professionals to support optimum health for their clients. For example, one of the most common complaints for which people seek Bowen treatment is back pain.
The average number of treatments people have is three to four. There are always exceptions to any rule, and some people will need further or even on-going treatment.
Painful and restricted shoulders are also a particular favourite as are neck pain, respiratory conditions and headache patterns. Bowen is being widely used for sports injuries as well, with rugby clubs and premiership football clubs showing interest. Not only do athletes who use Bowen report fewer injuries when treated regularly but they also notice enhanced performance. There are also a number of athletic therapists, some working alongside physicians, who report significant recovery from concussion especially with early symptoms. While Bowen is still largely unheard of, it is making waves in the health industry as more and more research goes into the practice.
