The Bowen move gently pulls apart glued or stuck connective tissue called FASCIA, which surrounds and connects to every structure throughout the body. This allows fluid to flow back into the dehydrated tissue (which is stiff, dry and often painful).
By restoring the hydration of the fascia, the wellness of the body is restored on many levels, enabling blood to circulate more freely, nerve impulses to be transmitted without impairment, and therefore restoring optimal functioning of the underlying muscles, joints, tendons and improving lymphatic drainage.
This increased fluid also acts as an important lubricant, which helps to reduce inflammation and pain, and improve mobility.
Bowen Therapy can be effectively used on newborns through to the elderly.
