How does it work?
We know that the body has an innate ability to heal itself, if conditions are favorable. We've all experienced this when we get a cut or bruise, and it eventually heals. Bowen Therapy recognizes this principle, and seems to help reorganize the body's intrinsic systems to facilitate healing. There is a direct relationship between the structural framework of the body, the nervous system and internal organs. Bowen Therapy appears to restore their functional integration by gentle moves that relax muscles, fascia, and the nervous system.
In addition, there is growing evidence to support the idea that the deep relaxation that many people experience during a Bowen session positively supports, balances, and stimulates the Autonomic Nervous System - the system that governs the whole body response to internal and external stimuli.
