Bowen Bits: Stress and Vitamin B

B-group vitamins are a group of 8 vitamins that the body needs in small doses but are vital for metabolic processes such as energy production, red blood cell synthesis, nerve function and brain processes. When a body has had a stress response, the body has increased its energy consumption and thus will increase its use of Vitamin B.

Most Vitamins within this group cannot be stored by the body as they are water soluble and so must be consumed regularly as part of a nutritious and well balanced diet. They are also easily destroyed through food processing, alcohol and extended cooking.

Good sources of Vitamin B include wholemeal cereal grains, sesame seeds, legumes, wheatgerm, nuts, yeast, pork, milk, yoghurt, cottage cheese, egg, leafy green vegetables, liver, kidney, fish, poultry, red meats, mushrooms, cauliflower and citrus fruits.

Symptoms of Vitamin B deficiency can include irritability, decreased coordination, lethargy, fatigue, muscle weakness, anxiety, intestinal upset and muscle pain. If you have concerns that you may have a vitamin deficiency, these deficiencies must be diagnosed by a doctor. Vitamin supplements can be taken as a supplement for a balanced diet and should only be taken as directed by the manufacturer on the side of the bottle or by dieticians or accredited natural therapists.

Celebrating 20 years

At the end of November 2011, I, Benjamin Setter celebrated 20 years as a Bowen Therapist operating in this wonderful city of Townsville QLD. I would humbly like to thank all of you who have walked though my door over the last 20 years, and allowed me to help you through some very trying times in your lives.

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.

Did you know?

“Tom Bowen’s Technique Modality was named in his honour ‘Bowen Therapy‘ years after his death in 1982.”

“Tom Bowen never used his Technique in combination with any other modality because it was clear that the work became less effective or ceased to function at all.”

“Tom Bowen trained only ‘six men’ in his modality. Mr Ossie Rentsch the founder of the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia (Bowtech) is one of these six. Sadly, at this time none of these men reside in Townsville Australia.”

Bowen Therapy is a technique unto itself, it requires no oils and has know thrust manipulation.

Bowen Therapy is a set system of moves, that instruct the body to heal for itself.

Bowen Therapy treatments are generally once every five to seven days, depending on the seriousness of the problem.

Bowen Therapy’s full name is Bowen Therapeutic Technique. It is not a combination therapy.

“Everyone is better with Tom Bowen’s Therapy in it’s original form.”
