Bowen Therapy: Non-invasive treatments!

Bowen Therapy is a non-invasive therapeutic system utilising cross-fiber muscle movement in specific areas of the body.

The "moves" are performed in categorical secession with waiting periods incorporated during the session. This resting time is very important because it appears to have the action of allowing the brain to assimilate, correlate and create a positive response in the area being treated. When these "moves" are placed precisely across muscle and connective tissue, they alleviate a multitude of physical ailments.

This has been verified by patients in clinical testing as effective in a high percentage of cases. It balances connective and muscular tissues of the body and improves circulation, lymphatic and venous drainage.

Bowen has been used effectively for these conditions:

  • back,shoulder and hip pain,
  • frozen shoulder
  • sciatica
  • RSI
  • head and neck tension
  • migraines
  • tennis elbow
  • and sports injuries.
