Essential Ingredients For A Balanced Body – The Supportive Golden Rules.

 

 

It is not uncommon for people to have reactions after having a Bowen Therapy Treatment. These reactions can range from immediate pain relief, to pins and needles or aches over the course of seven days. Because we are all individuals, reactions to Bowen Therapy are also of an individual nature.

Having said this, it is important to handle these reactions calmly and in a controlled manner. At the end of treatment the Bowen Practitioner will inform you that you may or may not get a few aches and pains over the next few days. This is why the Golden Rules are given to you after a Bowen Treatment. They are designed to optimise your treatment and guide you through any reactions.

The Golden Rules

1. Do not sit for more then 30 minutes at a time on the day of the treatment. There is no proper balanced posture in a sitting position – and the whole concept of Bowen Therapy is to realign the body.

2. Eight glasses of water a day – your body is going to release a lot of toxins and you need to flush them out.

3. Warm Showers for the next seven days – none of them really hot or cold. Hot and cold water are classed as forms of massage. Bowen Therapy is a complete system and will cease to function if any other treatment modality is used.

4. No crossing the legs or ankles in a sitting position. This is not just bad for circulation, it also pushes the pelvis forward and then your lower back goes out – followed by your neck and then the pain.

5. COMPLETE REST – outside of work/children hours complete rest is required. If you do not rest, you do not heal.

Note: If something does concern you after a treatment, then contact your Bowen Therapist immediately to discuss the issue.

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.

20 years of Bowen Therapy in the tropics

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.
