What Can Bowen Therapy Treat?
Bowen is a great therapy for most people including sports enthusiasts, athletes, gymnasts, dancers, for the very old to the newborn baby, people who work in an office, for labourers, before/during and after pregnancy, pre and post surgery, for the terminally ill, for rest and relaxation, or for people with degenerative disease’s. I will treat the specific condition but I will ALWAYS treating you on a holistic level and to balance your body (and mind) as a whole. I will never just focus on the injured or painful area of your body because every aspect of your body is connected to the whole and one imbalance in one area can have a massive impact in other places.Where the pain is might not be the area that causung the problem. If we get the body back in balance and working in harmony with itself then the mental side is also much happier. Pain is a miserable thing!
