Don’t be fooled by Bowen Therapy’s gentleness. It is gentle yet powerful. Bowen Therapy is a holistic treatment for all ages which helps the body realign and heal itself.
Anissa Young, Feel Young Bowen Therapy explains Bowen.
Bowen Therapy uses light pressure, non-invasive moves over muscles, tendons and fascia over specific areas of the body. It also resets the central nervous system to prevent future injury and interrupts the pain signals going to the brain.
Apart from the standard injuries, anxiety, pain relief of any description (acute or chronic) allergies, skin conditions and a myriad of other conditions Bowen Therapy should be your standard go-to for holistic health.
A typical first treatment includes realignment of the lower back and hips. Upper back and shoulders, neck, detoxing your kidneys and focussing on any other areas causing pain or discomfort.
Bowen Therapy for Women
Women’s specific issues which can effectively be treated include; menstrual pain or irregular periods, endometriosis and Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), hormonal migraines/headaches, hormonal imbalance. Constant pain can be minimised or completely diminished.
Whilst not entirely women’s issues, Plantar fasciitis, bunions, thyroid issues, scoliosis, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis and gallstones are issues that can be dramatically improved with effective pain relief.
Bowen Therapy for Mums and Babies
And Bowen is helpful for all things baby-related. Pre-pregnancy with fertility Bowen to help your hormones balance, so there is an optimal chance for pregnancy. During pregnancy, Bowen Therapy can relieve lower back and pelvic discomfort. My sister, who is 26 weeks pregnant at the moment has been having Bowen weekly since long before her pregnancy. Bowen can also be administered whilst laying, sitting or standing, so it is perfect for mums to be that can’t lay on their belly. It is important that your body is as good as it can be inside and out for childbirth. And the baby can have Bowen straight after birth. It’s that gentle.
Baby Bowen consists of several small moves made with one finger over the baby’s back and belly. It can help with sleeping issues, colic, reflux and feeding issues including torticollis. (Wry neck). I have had mother’s call me in tears because their baby that hasn’t slept properly since they came home from hospital is tucked up in their bassinet for the first time. And home visits can be arranged for new mums.
In fact sleep is a side effect of Bowen Therapy for all ages. I have clients who come to me just for the sleeping benefits. They can then deal with other issues, as they aren’t tired and irritated.
Breastfeeding mothers having difficulty producing milk or mastitis can benefit from a Bowen treatment also. Baby and mum should always be treated together, as the baby will quite literally feed off mum's anxiety.
Bowen aftercare is pretty simple. Drink plenty of water to flush the lymphatic system. Refrain from hots/colds on your body, like wheat packs/heat creams or hot showers as these can interrupt the nervous system and undo the signals sent to reboot the system.
