Bowen has a profound effect on the fascia, as it directs fluid into the area that was previously dry. Fluidity is essential for healthy tissue, and the corresponding muscles.
The Bowen Technique is a remedial, hands-on therapy that is applied using very gentle pressure. The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise points of the body to perform Bowen’s unique sets of rolling-type moves which stimulate the muscles and soft tissue of the body. There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used. The experience of a treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing. It is believed that the Bowen Technique prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself and clients report the experience of pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy.
The Bowen Technique corresponds with the homeopathic principles, where the body is given a very small dose and then left to respond in its own time. In the same manner, during a Bowen treatment we give small but specific input so the body can start the process of re-balancing towards its original blueprint of wellbeing. The moves during a Bowen session are gentle, non-invasive and have a relaxing effect on the person.
