Ever had a physical problem that just won't go away? You've tried everything from meditation to medication, practitioners to pills! By combining my knowledge of Bowen Therapy with Professional Coaching Techniques I investigate the source of your pain, both emotional and physical, to clear physical blockages and emotional build-up.
WHAT IS BOWEN THERAPY?
Bowen Therapy (also known as the Bowen Technique, BowTech®, or Bowenwork®) is a holistic form of natural healing involving subtle moves, to specific points on the body, which send messages deep into the body, retrieving cellular memory of a preferred, balanced way of wellbeing. The technique addresses not only the musculoskeletal framework, but also the fascia, nerves and internal organs. The body's integrated response improves circulation and lymphatic drainage and aids assimilation of nutrients and elimination of toxins.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT MY FIRST SESSION?
I will do the usual gathering of information around what is, and has been, happening in your body and ask you some questions to gain an understanding of what you are experiencing and how it started, how long you've had it, etc. I will also do an alignment assessment to ascertain posture and weight shifts in your body and check your range of movement and source connection to your current condition/s. You will then have a Bowen Therapy session.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?
After the First Session I recommend three sessions one week apart. This helps both of us to understand what is happening in your body and your reactions to the therapy. Depending on the condition sometimes the full four sessions is enough.
HOW LONG IS A SESSION?
The first session is 90 minutes to allow time for client history and assessment prior to the Bowen Therapy session. Subsequent sessions can last between 30-60 minutes.
DOES IT WORK?
If you are open to new ways of thinking, ready for change and committed to the opportunities then yes, it can work. I have clients who have experienced relief from eczema, headaches, migraines, sinus, digestion issues, lower back pain, hip pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, and more.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The therapist moves over muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia and joints, in order to elicit a healing response in the body. During treatment, a stretch on the muscle is maintained for several seconds before the move itself is made. Some of the key points worked on relate to acupuncture meridians and trigger points enabling many areas of the body to respond and correct. In addition to the re-balancing of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) Bowen moves and procedures may reset the body to heal itself by activating, through the nervous and endocrine systems among others, the following mechanisms: stretch reflex, joint proprioceptors, fascia, lymphatics, detoxification.
WHY DOES IT WORK?
Bowen Therapy treats the source of your physical pain not the symptoms. By treating the source the body starts to realign and balance and ultimately begins the self-healing process. Bowen is a gentle form of soft-tissue therapy which means it doesn't hurt, assists a wide range of pains and ailments, and is suitable for any age. It works mainly on connective tissue or fascia. Benefits of having healthy fascia include increased blood flow, improved body symmetry and less day-to-day pain.
