Bowen Therapy Townsville: The human body is not rebuilt in a day!

Rome was not rebuilt in a day! The human body is not rebuilt in a day! Wait a minute…I just repeated myself!!

119 - Vaison la Romaine


Hello Friends,

It is one of the greatest successful modern health marketing ploys in our community. What is it? Modern medicine can permanently relieve body pain, back pain, sinus congestion, and migraines with a simple tablet! How many times do we see commercials on television advertising immediate relief of pain, and followed quickly with…”If pain persists do see your…”  You get the idea.

Sadly in the last 5 to 10 years this quick fix method has been adopted by many forms of combined/alternative/integrated therapy as well. The trouble is, the human body is not rebuilt in a day. We’ve got to look past the marketing hype.

At Setter’s Health Centre we are not interested in the quick fix method. What we offer is Bowen Therapy. A Technique that involves a rolling movement over fascia, muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints – which is gentle and safe for all ages, from babies to the Seniors.

With 60 years of Bowen Therapy success at treating the human body Bowen continues to show a steady recovery for not just short term injuries sustained in sport, but long term relief of back pain, lower back pain and sciatica, sinus congestion and migraines as well.

And you don’t need an info commercial for that!

Thanks to all those who have befriended our Facebook page. And continue to like articles. Until next time,                              Benjamin on 9-03-13 at 10.17 AM #2

Why does Bowen Therapy not combine or integrate with any other treatment?

One of the most frequently asked questions by both Clients and Professionals in Townsville alike is, “Why does Bowen therapy not combine or integrate with any other treatment?”

Tom Bowen demonstrated that Bowen Therapy is less effective, or will cease to function at all, if any other treatment was combined with his technique. This has been shown to be true when my own clients have chosen to ignore this and have, for example, had a massage a few days after a Bowen Therapy Treatment. The result? That massage stopped the Bowen Therapy. And this becomes another problem  – people begin to think Bowen Therapy doesn’t work for them, and, well, word of mouth gives us Chinese whispers. There’s a lot of misinformation about Bowen Therapy and it’s effectiveness as a treatment – which isn’t helped when some Therapists ignore the fundamental premise of Tom Bowen’s technique and mix various treatments together – more is not necessarily better. So when searching for Bowen Therapy be sure to ask for a Bowen Technique and not a combination/integrated Technique.

And as an added tip – make sure you don’t use any magnetic underlays or body magnets while undergoing Bowen treatments, just like that massage, a magnet will also disrupt the work your Bowen Therapist is doing.
