Bowen Therapy Aftercare
After a bowen treatment it is important to drink plenty of water to help flush toxins out of the body. It is also very important that you do some 15 – 20 minutes walks which will increase your circulation to carry the toxins to the kidneys where they will be flushed out of your body by all the lovely water you are drinking! If you cannot walk then trying to stay mobile is also very useful.
Do not do excessive exercise for the first 48 hours after your treatment, or do exercise your body is not used to. Avoid exercise that could be the culprit for your imbalance.
Avoid very hot or cold showers or baths.
Do not stop prescribed medication without consulting with your doctor.
During a course of bowen treatments do not receive other therapies such as massage, reflexology, osteopathy, chiropractic, acupuncture etc.
Pilates or yoga exercise can be very beneficial in helping the body to rebalance following a course of bowen therapy.
