Q&A Benjamin Setter Bowen Therapy Specialist Townsville

Benjamin and Diploma2015

Dear Friends,

I have been asked some interesting questions this week by my clients. So I thought I would share a few of them with you.

Q. What is the minimum number of Bowen Therapy treatments per year that you would recommend?

A. For maintenance we recommend 5 Bowen Treatments per year that are spaced out every 8 to 12 weeks.

Q. Can a person still be treated with Bowen Therapy if they cannot lie prone? (Face Down)

A. Bowen Therapy can be done just as successfully in a chair as it can on a bed or table. If the client is unable to lie prone, we work with the client to achieve the most comfortable position for them that still allows the Therapist access to muscles.

Q. Do you do referrals to either General Practitioners or Naturopaths in Townsville?

A. Yes, we do refer to ‘both’ General Practitioners and Naturopaths.

Q. What do you do at Setter’s Health Centre?

A. Pain relief is what our Bowen Therapy Specialists are aiming to achieve. We aim to help you achieve your pain relief goals – but we are only the assistant – your input in achieving these goals is integral.

Q. What if a client only has 24 hours in the city before heading west – which makes a follow up treatment 4 to 7 day later impossible.

A. In this scenario I work by the adage, “Something is better then nothing!” Depending on the severity of the clients injuries I would treat the client holistically and move to balance Lower Back, Upper Back and Neck – followed by Hamstring procedure to make sure circulation was good to the feet. And then the arms for the good old Tennis Elbow. Throughout the treatment I would be strongly emphasising the Golden Rules and drinking those eight glasses of water each day. It would be better if a return treatment was carried out, but sometimes things are beyond the control of everybody.

Q. Are tea and coffee the same as water?

A. No. The human body needs to have eight glasses of water a day to maintain a good health. Water to this day is still one of the most powerful tools for healing.

Q. My son is 14 months old and has not slept a night for seven months. Can Bowen Therapy help my child sleep and save my sanity?

A. Yes. Bowen Therapy is safe to use for children of all ages. A child’s body is growing rapidly and those growing muscles and bones do cause ‘growing pains’. Bowen Therapy can relieve pain in children, just as it does in adults. It also allows the body to return to a state of rest…which means sleeping at night.
