I always make sure I give my own sons Bowen therapy whenever they have a heavy fall or sustain an injury when playing sport etc, just to release any possible muscle restriction and keep their bodies healthy and aligned.I also give them Bowen when they are ill just to speed along the healing process. Children are very resilient, and often after a fall or injury when playing, they just get up and continue playing, not wanting to miss out on any fun. However, lots of these little (or big) incidents over time can build up into areas of tightness and pain.
Children love Bowen therapy, their little bodies are so receptive to the technique that a session only lasts 10 - 15 minutes as the pauses between moves are not required. Children's bodies accepts the new information and adjusts and realigns without having deal with the years of pent up tension that adults hold in their bodies.
I have treated many children and babies in my Monday afternoon clinic and they all respond quickly and love the way it makes them feel.Bowen can treat all sorts of sore spots in the body, shoulders, knees, back, headaches, asthma, digestive issues and sinus problems. Bowen is also amazing for children suffering with bedwetting.Babies with colic and contispation can all be safely treated due to the non-invasive nature of the therapy. the treatment is performed over light clothing and the parent or guardian can stay with the child at all times.
