BOWEN TECHNIQUE TREATMENTS AT MANCHESTER THERAPY CENTRE
technique is a gentle and non-invasive holistic treatment that aims
to restore balance to the body by using small, gentle moves to
specific areas of the body. Because Bowen technique is so gentle, it
is considered to be suitable for all ages. The precise, light
applied either directly on the skin or through light clothing to the
muscles, tendons or ligaments. A delicate, cross-fibre movement is
used to release tension and energetic blocks held in the muscles,
allowing the body to rebalance itself naturally and therefore
maximise the potential for healing.
technique treatment usually takes place with the client lying on a
couch or sitting in a chair. A Bowen technique therapist uses their
fingers and thumbs to ‘roll’ the muscles and connective tissue using
gentle pressure at specific points. Many of the points used
correspond to the trigger points used in massage or the acupressure
points. The Bowen technique movements assist blood circulation and
lymphatic drainage, helping to clear toxins from the body. A Bowen
technique session usually lasts from half an hour to an hour with
frequent pauses between movements to allow the body time to
assimilate changes. The client is left to rest at the end of the
treatment for the same reason.

Benefits Of Bowen Technique
There is no
person that cannot be treated safely using Bowen technique, from the
youngest to the very old. Midwives use Bowen technique with
tremendous success on both labouring women and the new-born. At the
other end of the scale, geriatric staff and hospice workers report
consistently good results with people in their care.
Back pain would be one of the most common presentations and one that
tends to respond very quickly. Other conditions that are
consistently resolved by Bowen technique include: frozen shoulder,
asthma, tennis elbow, ME, migraine, hayfever, carpal tunnel, RSI,
painful or lumpy breasts and whiplash. The list is exhaustive and
there is no condition that would exclude a treatment. The reason for
this is that a Bowen therapist does not treat the condition, but
rather treats the patient. The work is offered to the body and it is
given a choice. If it accepts the work and responds, then the
condition is addressed. If the body chooses not to accept, then no
harm can be done.
