What is Bowen Therapy?
The basic rule of natural treatment is the body is treated as a whole, without referral to named disease.
Bowen Therapy is a system of manually applied myofascial stimulation to the body, carried out either singularly or sequentially, within strategically placed locations, with some designated resting periods. These specialized moves are applied at specific point locations over muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia, bringing out a window of opportunity to promote homeostasis of the body tissues and systems by working with the central nervous system.
The precise location of the Bowen moves correlates markedly with much of the latest research into Traditional Chinese Medicine meridian systems, acupuncture, acupoint theory, myofascial and musculoskeletal release, and trigger point theories. It also follows the belief that structure and function share a reciprocal relationship and the body functions as an integrated, interrelated, whole unit.
Embody Bowen Vitality offers sessions where the primary goal is to achieve balance and symmetry to the central nervous system through assessments to detect dysfunction and perform targeted treatments to restore homeostasis using the Bowen Move.
By bringing symmetry to the body it can alleviate compensating patterns that have created pain and tension throughout the body. Targeting the primary dysfunction, the cause of the problem can be quickly overcome. Depending on the acute or chronic stage of pain, the cause of dysfunction may have to be peeled off in layers over a period of sessions.
Be assured there are actually lots going on under the skin during a treatment thanks to fascia and nerve receptors.
Different moves, different nerve receptors, different pressures, different impacts. Creating long-lasting effects.
Bowen can be performed while the client has on light clothing or bare skin.
