Bowen Therapy is a gentle hands-on treatment at the heart of naturopathic medicine. Through Bowen Therapy a patient’s healing response, or vital force is activated, thus restoring balance to the nervous system.
The therapy is performed over clothing and consists of a series of “rolls” as well as light pressure “moves” over various tendons, ligaments, fascia, nerve and lymphatic bundles.
A Bowen Therapy session is about an hour long of deep relaxation and leaves the patient feeling rested with a sense of rejuvenation. Long term effects are improved sleep, mood & organ health as well as decreased pain and inflammation.
Bowen therapy helps every system in the body: musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, nervous & internal organs.
In today’s high stress and anxiety world, Bowen Therapy is particularly helpful to balance the “fight or flight” sympathetic nervous system with the “rest and digest” parasympathetic nervous system.
