A pregnant woman is receiving bowen therapy for pregnancy. The Bowen Technique is safe throughout all trimesters of pregnancy. It can help to keep the pelvis aligned and address any imbalances as well as help with the different symptoms that is experienced while the body goes through constant changes.

                                               The Bowen Technique originated from                                                 Australia by Tom Bowen who treated                                                   thousands of people, many who                                                           travelled hundreds of miles for                                                             treatment.

The Bowen Technique is unlike any other
forms of hands-on therapy. It is not a
massage and there is no manipulation or
force used. The treatment is gentle, subtle
and relaxing. It is a powerful, non-invasive
and drug free remedial therapy that uses a
light rolling type move across the skin,
fascia, muscle, tendon and other soft
connective tissue.
                                      These moves stimulate nerve pathways                                              encouraging a conversation to take place                                            between different nervous systems of the                                          body. The key feature of The Bowen                                                      Technique are the breaks. The therapist will                                        leave the room after performing a few                                                precise moves for between 2 and 5                                                      minutes.
 
The breaks provide the nervous system
with the space and the opportunity to
potentially make a decision about how
to respond appropriately. Given the
right conditions our bodies have the
ability to adjust, adapt and heal
themselves.
 
                                     The Bowen Technique prompts the body to                                         reset, realign, repair and rebalance. Many                                           people try The Bowen Technique as a last                                           resort after trying lots of other therapies                                             that have had little or no benefit and are                                             amazed with the results they get from                                                 Bowen.
 
The Bowen Treatment can be done through
light clothing or preferably on the skin. If a
person is unable to lie down then it can be
performed while sitting or standing. The
treatment is precise and targeted to the
individual and works on the principle of less
is more so not to overload the body’s
communication centre, which could result in
the body not responding.
                                   
                                    Three to four treatments, five to ten days                                            apart are often sufficient to achieve lasting                                        results from even long-standing pain. Acute                                      conditions can respond immediately, chronic                                      conditions may take longer.
 
 



 

There has been lots of success for infertility
using The Bowen Technique. The Bowen
Technique helps align the pelvis and balance
hormones as well as relaxing the mind and
body and helping relieve the stress
associated with trying to conceive.



 
                                       The Bowen Technique is safe throughout all
                                       trimesters of pregnancy. It can help to keep
                                       the pelvis aligned and address any                                                       muscular imbalances as well as help with                                         the different symptoms that is experienced                                         while the body goes through constant                                                 changes.

Bowen Technique enhances performance

The lymphatic system has 3 main functions.

 

1) It maintains the balance of fluid between the blood and the tissues.

2) It forms part of the body’s immune system and helps defend against bacteria and other intruders.

3) It facilitates absorption of fats and fat soluble nutrients in the digestive system.


Symptoms which could be pointing to struggling lymphatics and toxin building up in your system may include:

 

Fatigue, swollen glands, puffiness in

eyes or face, swelling in the fingers,

bloating or holding on to water,

headaches, sinus infections, skin issues

like dry or itchy skin, soreness or

stiffness upon waking, unexplained

aches and pains, constipation,weight

gain and extra belly fat, breast swelling

or tenderness and lymphoedema.

 

This is why it’s important to make sure the lymphatic system is functioning at an optimum level.

Bowen for lymphatic drainage, like massage encourages drainage to the whole lymphatic system, but because it is gentler it is suitable for clients who are sensitive to touch.
