Bowen ~ Nerve Stress Release :
Less Stress In The Body Means More Flexible Muscles
Bowen Sessions are every 5-7 days. Each session helps to release stress in the body.
One or two exercises keeps the body loose and fluid between sessions quickening the stress/trauma release process. Less stress in the body means more flexible muscles. More flexible muscles means less bones breaking as the body ages.
When the muscles are fluid and elasticized the body is able to react to sudden physical strain by flowing with the movement instead of tightening against it. Most of the time we tighten against the sudden movement and break the bones in the affected area.
You can be any age for this to happen. All you need is tension and stress and you create immobility in the muscles and therefore the body.
Bowen Sessions are an hour long and done on a massage table with the client fully clothed.
This technique softly rolls the muscles, tapping their main nerves, then allows the body to rest and process.
Bowen is one of few therapies that has these rests and directly accesses the nerves.
Each session calms your nerves out of their stress pattern enabling the muscles to become softer and more elasticized.
If the client chooses, slow moving exercises are used between sessions to directly access the spinal nerves.
Unlike some therapies that require frequent and long term treatment plans, improvement is often experienced within the first few treatments with the Bowen Technique.
For the best results it is suggested you sign up for at least 2-5 sessions, each one a week apart. This will enable your nervous system to calm down, quickly reset and hold longer than just doing one session and quitting. Tom Bowen, who founded this technique, realized on the second session the nerves begin holding the information and calming stress messages in the body. For most people only two treatments are not enough.
