Spotlight on Bowen – by Andrea Neale
As a Bowen Therapist the most common question I hear is “What is Bowen Therapy’? In short Bowen involves precise gentle moves over specific points of the body. It is characterized by short pauses in treatment to allow the body to integrate the stimulus provided.
As well as effectively addressing many physical problems including back pain, headaches, and fatigue, one of the great benefits of Bowen is the profound state of relaxation gained from a treatment.
Bowen works on our parasympathetic nervous system and gives our body a chance to get out of a chronic ‘fight or flight’ state (driven by the sympathetic nervous system) into a state of relaxation (parasympathetic). After a treatment clients routinely report feeling more ‘balanced’ and better able to handle whatever life throws up for them.
The gentle nature of Bowen means it is suitable for all ages. Go on – try Bowen – you won’t regret it!
Don’t let the thought of shorter,cooler days get you down. It can be a great time to focus on things that have escaped your attention in the busier “social” months.
Have that niggling pain looked at; re-assess your eating habits to avoid bad ones getting a hold again; take some time for yourself whether it be looking at your energy level, ability to cope with life’s stresses, or as simple as looking after your feet!
Our practitioners are ready to help.
