Bowen Explained: For The Relief Of Stress


Sometimes we’re so stressed we need to reach for the phone and make an appointment for Bowen Therapy as a mind and body relaxation. Yes, I’m advocating Bowen Therapy for the sorrows of life rather then you drowning you’re sorrows or steeling those nerves with some overproof courage. I’m talking about keeping Bowen Therapy on hand like some handy mineral and vitamin supplements in easy reach for when you’d really prefer to be underwhelmed rather than over.  The body’s stress response is to release adrenalin and cortisol into the bloodstream and it doesn’t matter what the trigger is, this is going to happen every time. These two hormones burn up the Vitamin B group, plus Vitamin C, magnesium and zinc like there’s no tomorrow, and once these nutrients are consumed by your anxiety, they’re no longer available for other parts of your body. So by having a Bowen Treatment we are saying to the body, “Stop the emergency!” This then gives your body the chance to take advantage of vitamins. A good example is collagen – it needs Vitamin C and zinc – without these your skin is in trouble…and you won’t have anything to make your white blood cells either. Likewise, a loss of magnesium can cause headaches and even raise your blood pressure – while the Vitamin B group is needed for brain functions and energy to keep the body-show on the road. The simple fact is, no matter what is stressing you, be it a sabre-tooth tiger or your insurance bill, you are burning nutrients that have to be replaced – and if you don’t, even more things could go wrong. So reach for that bottle of Vitamins…and reach for the phone and make a Bowen Therapy appointment today!

What is Bowen Therapy?


The Gentle Healing Technique

Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowen Therapy) is a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy that encourages the body to right itself. This technique involves a gentle roll over the muscle. By using a set system of these small moves from the base of the neck to the tips of the toes, the therapist stimulates the body’s innate healing system to realign and re-balance.

Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowen Therapy) is completely safe for the newborn baby to the frail and elderly. It is gentle, fast and an effective way to treat health concerns from sporting injuries to pain, stress and discomfort. Bowen Therapy stimulates the patient’s musculoskeletal system into realigning itself.

The beauty of Bowen Therapy is that it will not interfere and works well with all medication and/or dietary supplements and is gentle but powerful. A treatment takes about one hour, Health Funds avialable, with Australian Government Accredited National Training.
