Bowen is a fairly new technique that has gained popularity and growth over the past two and a half decades. It is a holistic technique that is designed to help control and/or alleviate pain and the conditions that cause it. Bowen Technique treats the body as a whole versus working on particular sites of pain.
The fascia is rolled, using a light touch, to balance it and the tissues underneath. Therapists have discovered that they can work more effectively and extend their careers due to a lighter touch required.
Bowen Technique emphasizes the connection that is made between all of the elements of the body, including the mind and spirit; the therapist takes all of this into consideration as they become aware of what is happening with their clients’ bodies. This awareness leads the therapist to use certain techniques in certain places, which will affect the pain patterns that cause the clients to feel pain.
This is a fascinating technique that is ideal for therapists who specialize in specific pain issues. It also has many elements that can be incorporated into what you already do right now! Clients enjoy new modalities, and therapists enjoy giving the treatment and achieving results!
