What is it?
This is a hands on therapy that utilises small but measured movements over muscles and ligaments that aims to realign and rebalance the body.
As a result vibrational impulses are triggered through the fascia which allows the body’s own healing mechanisms to kick in. .
Our lifestyle governs our muscular/skeletal structure (i.e. what we do, how we live, posture, nutrition, inflammation etc)…………
Our structure governs our function (i.e. if our muscular/skeletal systems are out of place or balance it can result in pain, discomfort and poor sleep. This then has a knock on effect to other body systems and everyday life. Lower back pain is the most common complaint, but is quite often easily corrected by realigning the pelvic gate.
The pelvic gate is a very moveable joint that can be affected by inflammation within the gut. When inflammation is present the psoas muscles within the abdomen that are attached to the iliac crest get tight. They then pull on the pelvis altering its position. This has an affect on on lower back muscles, upper back muscles, the shoulders, knees, and sciatic nerve.
The amount of Bowen therapy needed depends on the individual and the health condition. An initial treatment and a follow up is necessary to start with. Then it depends from there. Regular Bowen therapy is recommended as the body’s rebalancing MOT every 6-8 weeks. This helps to prevent structural imbalances from having a further knock on effect to joints and other body systems. Everyone is better with bowen therapy.
Bowen therapy rebalances and realigns the body.
Function governs quality of life & health (i.e. Less pain, better mobility, improved sleep quality, less stress!!!)………. VITALITY!!
Conditions that Bowen Therapy / NST may help:
Bowen therapy has a profound effect on lots of health conditions (see the list below). However it is particularly good at resolving trapped nerves such as the sciatic nerve. This nerve can become trapped starting from the sacral area (buttocks) and radiating severe pain down the front or the back of the legs. The level of pain can range from mild to extremely strong and debilitating rendering a person inactive and unable to sleep or function for weeks.
Resolving Sciatica with Bowen can take between 3-6 treatments depending on the severity. Even the most severe cases of sciatic clients will feel a difference after just one treatment of Bowen therapy. The factors involved in triggering sciatica are inflammation, structural imbalances, dehydration and nutritional deficiencies. All of which are addressed during the treatment.

What happens during a Bowen therapy Treatment?
During the first session a consultation is necessary to obtain a clear picture of the presenting condition. This will then be followed by the treatment. A Bowen treatment consists of lots of separate procedures, that will be separated by short breaks. This is to allow the body to accept the Bowen therapy and relax into the treatment. Please wear light clothing. I.e. leggings, jogging bottoms and t-shirts.
