Bowen Technique Allows the Body to Heal itself
Feb 29, 2016 02:44PM
In a corrective, complementary hands-on therapy known as the Bowen Technique, the practitioner uses very gentle pressure with thumbs and fingers on precisely defined points. Unique sets of rolling-type moves stimulate the body’s muscles and soft tissue without manipulation or force. Gentle, subtle and relaxing, it is believed that the Bowen Technique prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself. The Bowen Technique, which was developed in the 1950s by Australian Tom Bowen, is also referred to as fascial kinetics and neurostructural integration technique (NST).
While occasionally, more treatments are necessary, individuals that have received three to four treatments report pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy. Painful and restricted shoulders, as well as back and neck pain, respiratory conditions, chronic fatigue syndrome, sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome headache patterns and other disorders respond well to this.
