Read more about Bowen Technique
Bowen therapy, or the Bowen technique, is a non-invasive, complementary holistic therapy. It targets certain points on the body with gentle rolling movements to help it balance, repair and reset itself. Clients are believed to experience energy recovery, a reduction in pain and an improvement of function.
The correlation between Acupuncture and Bowen is amazing. For example the first moves that every Bowen Therapist complete are directly related to the acupuncture points QiHaiShu or Bladder 24 (BL-24). This acupoint, located at the highest point on the paraspinal muscles, has traditionally been used for many hundreds of years for the treatment of back pain.
An interesting thing about Bowen is that there are no needles and it is non-invasive.
Many therapists believe that Bowen promotes self-healing, it should not be used in conjunction with any other alternative therapies, just in case of interference. For this reason,I advise you to not receive any other manipulative therapies for a certain period of time, as this could undermine the effectiveness of treatment.
Although everyone will respond differently to treatment, on average most people experience improvement after three to four sessions. There will be exceptions when you may need to extend the amount of sessions you have. This could be the case if you have a longstanding condition. In either case however, it’s recommended that you continue to see your Bowen therapist every few months even after experiencing positive results to maintain good health.
