Everyone is better with Bowen technique
Bowen can profoundly help most people. Comments such as The Bowen Technique is possibly the greatest discovery ever in health care are born out by the amazing results obtained throughout the world by this non-invasive, all embracing modality.
Rather than focusing on a single complaint, Bowen Technique addresses the entire body, by restoring balance via the autonomic nervous system (ANS).
The ANS controls over 80% of bodily functions and is very susceptible to external stressors. Most people today live in a constant state of high stress and sympathetic ANS over-stimulation (fight, flight or freeze mode). Healing can occur only after the ANS shifts from sympathetic to parasympathetic dominance (rest, relax and repair mode).
Bowen Technique enables that shift. During a session, the client often drops into deep relaxation or falls asleep, and loud peristalsis may be heard. Both of these changes are indications of a profound release from stress and a shift towards parasympathetic influence. This shift could explain, in part, the common observation that a Bowen Technique session seems to reactivate the recovery process in situations where healing from trauma, sickness or surgery has stalled or reached a plateau.
"After months of struggling with plantar fasciitis the Bowen technique made a huge difference to the pain I was feeling in my heel. A few days after my first treatment, I was able to wear a pair of heels to lunch and after my second treatment I am ready to try a short run. This is after 7 weeks of no running. I highly recommend this treatment."

What is a bowen treatment like
The Bowen Technique moves are gentle, but purposeful, and can be done through light clothing. Between each set of moves, the practitioner pauses for as many minutes as are needed for the client's body to begin responding and the nervous system begins to adjust the tension level in the body.
The Bowen technique is a non-invasive soft tissue therapy. It deliver signals to the nervous system at specific locations (on muscles, tendons, ligaments, or nerves), and the body responds in its own time, within its vital capacity. While there are a few, very specific situations in which a particular 'procedure' is contraindicated, Bowen Technique is appropriate for people of all ages, in all degrees of health.
