Insomnia

We all know that sleep is important for our health, mind and body, and without it, we eventually become more irritable, tired and lack concentration.  Bowenwork is known for its healing qualities and for releasing stress via its calming effect on the autonomic nervous system.  It is a natural, drug free, non-invasive complementary therapy. Its quick and effective treatment can help improve problems relating to sleep deprivation such as stress. Many people that suffer from insomnia resort to taking sleep-inducing tablets and medicines.  However, rather than ‘making’ the body change, Bowen ‘asks’ the body to recognise the ailment, like insomnia, and make the changes it requires.

Sports Injuries

BOWEN FOR SPORTS INJURIES Athletes are discovering Bowen treatments enhance performance, increase stamina, improve mobility; resulting in improving their game and preventing injury.  Bowen therapy helps athletes recover more quickly from hard training or from injuries. Bowen brings rapid relief and gets athletes back to their game quickly.

Bowen for Frozen Shoulder: for the first time in a while I was able to sleep throughout the night without any discomfort/pain.

Published in England by Dr. Bernie Carter, at the Metropolitan University of Manchester (UK), a Bowen study showed effective results with frozen shoulder after 3 to 6 treatments, even with those who had long-standing conditions.  The study involved 20 participants diagnosed with frozen shoulder and treated with Bowen therapy. 70% of participants regained full mobility, equal to the unaffected side, by the end of treatment.  The other participants showed significant improvement in mobility and associated function.  80% of participants reports a pain level of 0-2, down from a level of 10.  Some still reported mild ache but none reported any invasive or intense pain, which they had experienced before receiving Bowen therapy. At the conclusion of this study, participants reported a high level of satisfaction with the therapy, a commitment to use Bowen therapy in any future case of relapse or for another condition, and the intention to recommend the therapy to friends and family.  http://www.naturalisllc.com/blog/2013/7/9/research-demonstrates-effectiveness-of-the-bowen-technique “I’ve had a frozen shoulder for almost ten years.  I tried cortisone injections and heat therapy, but nothing seemed to help long term.  I just lived with the pain, some days better than others.  After my first Bowen session, I felt extremely relaxed and […]
