It may offer help both pre-birth for balance and relaxation, and post birth to realign the pelvis.

The sooner an injury is seen, the greater the chance of a rapid recovery reducing the risk of long term damage or weakness. This goes for both sports injuries, accidents, strains, sprains, falls and other traumas.  Fast treatment ensures the body does not have time to set up compensatory shifts in walking, sitting or lying which in turn may cause referred pain or restriction.

Examples of conditions that may be helped include injury to:

 

  • tendons, ligaments or cartilages 

  • muscles & joints

  • strains, sprains, tackles and falls

 

Bowen can be combined with physio to speed up recovery ensuring your quicker return to those sports you love.

While working with clients I have visibly seen inflammation around an injury site reduce to localise at a very specific area, honing in to an exact traumatised spot, which is often very hot to the touch.  

 

This ability of the body to respond so swiftly to muscle and nerve stimuli from gentle specific moves is what makes Bowen unique in accelerated healing.

Injuries & Sports Injuries

Yes prevention really is better than cure, so in this world of busy lives we owe it to ourselves to look after ourselves. Regular treatment with Bowen ensures you keep muscles relaxed, joints supple, reduces stress on your adrenals, promotes sleep and generally helps to balance all systems which in turn aids digestion, boosts immunity and enhances wellbeing.

Does your work, home life or hobbies involve:

 

  • a lot of lifting or repetitive movements

  • is stressful 

  • is mainly sedentary

 

then Bowen, as a maintenance treatment every 4-6 weeks, can avoid issues developing that may cause you illness, time off work or prevent you doing what you enjoy in the future.

Examples of conditions that may be helped include:

 

  •   RSI from keyboards and texting

  •   stiffness & poor posture from sitting/slouching/driving

  •   lower back and shoulder/arm issues from heavy lifting and 

                 repetitive bending

  •   aching knees/ legs/ feet standing for long periods

  •   sciatica from driving or sitting too long in one position 

PLUS as our longevity increases it is essential to build in some wellbeing care to ensure we carry on having a full and active life for as long as we can.

Try Bowen - you may be surprised at how good it makes you feel
