Integral to the success of the Bowen Therapy Technique, the human body is considered a complex unit always attempting to restore balance. Gentle cross fibre moves are made over tendons, muscles and nerve bundles, sending messages to the brain through the nervous system to request the body to balance, cleanse and heal. Responses can often be deep in physical, emotional, chemical, spiritual and energetic ways. Bowen Therapy focuses on changing the nervous system from being in sympathetic mode (flight and fright) to para-sympathetic mode (rest and repair). This is when your body begins to heal and work towards functioning at optimal levels of health and efficiency.
