What is Bowen Therapy? Newsletter Part 2: Essential Ingredients For A Balanced Body – Bowen Therapy And Sport.

How many times through the years have I heard from a ‘winning’ sports person, that “I was in the zone!” Take a look at Milo surfing and you will see what I mean. Whether you do a high impact sport like Milo – or a low impact sports such as lawn bowls…to Bowen Therapy it is all the same!

It is all about keeping you proactive and in the the winning zone. The concept of having your body in balance ‘before’ you play is essential. And to not only enjoy your sport and winning, but also longterm ‘injury free’ balance and muscular durabiltiy. This leads to continuing your sport life long after others have retired because their injury rate is too high.

It is also just as important to realise that Bowen Therapy ‘after’ sport is essential. As Bowen works specifically with the muscles, we can relax the tense muscles around sports injuries. Ånd allow blood flow through torn areas both gently and effectively helping the body back into balance.

And keeping you – whatever your age is – in the Sport Zone!!

A big thanks to Milo Gaffney for this amazing photo 🙂

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.

Over the last 20 years Setter’s Health Centre has continually offered Bowen Therapy to the beautiful city of Townsville in Queensland, Australia. At the end of November 2011, I celebrated 20 years as a Bowen Therapist operating in this wonderful city. I would 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. It has been a wonderful journey to be your Bowen Therapist and to watch as you have recovered from your injuries through Bowen Therapy.
