The muscles which hold our bodies in the correct alignment can sometimes be compromised by physical injury, poor posture, emotional trauma or constant stress.
The tension created can irritate or damage nerve ending which often results in symptoms of pain.
The Bowen Technique therapist makes small, rolling type moves over the skin at very precise junctions of the muscles, ligaments and tendons.
This unconsciously connects the brain to the source of the problem bringing about awareness of tension in specific areas and triggering adjustments which help the body rebalance itself.
This relieves tension and reduces pain.
During treatment there are brief periods where the patient is left resting while the therapist leaves the room. This lets the body assimilate and respond to the information.
Immediate relaxation of the muscle is often seen in clinic and can bring about relief in a very short period of time.
