What can Bowen treat?
The Bowen Technique focuses on treating the whole person rather than only a specific symptom. The aim is to bring the body back into balance so that it can perform to its maximum potential. By rebalancing the body and releasing tension, full movement is restored and pain eliminated.
Many acute and chronic conditions respond favourably to Bowen Technique.

Bowen helps treat many other common ailments
Although musculoskeletal problems such as frozen shoulder and back and neck pain account for the majority of conditions that respond well to Bowen, it often has a very beneficial effect on other common conditions. Many people report significant improvements with asthma, migraine, irritable bowel, infertility and other reproductive problems. Sports injuries and postural alignment problems are also conditions which respond very positively.
Patients with Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological diseases can also gain relief from their symptoms as the body relaxes and neurological pathways are stimulated. The duration of the relief will depend on the severity of the condition and the frequency of treatment.
Bowen and stress conditions
Bowen can bring relief to cases of emotional stress where helping the body to auto-regulate the nervous system brings on a more relaxed state, which in turn eases pain and anxiety. Bowen is also often a great help in improving the quality of life for those who are terminally ill. Bowen for Immune System
