What is Bowen Therapy?

Dr. Reid is certified in the delivery of the Bowen technique. This non-invasive, neuromuscular manipulative therapy is a great way to realign the body, reduce or eliminate pain, and support healing. Bowen therapy consists of performing simple rolling motions over the muscle belly and underlying fascia, thus stimulating nerve conduction. This soothing treatment can be utilized by patients of all ages, from newborns to the elderly, and everyone in between.

 

How It Works

Bowen therapy uses a series of gentle motions applied to specific areas of the body in a particular order. The rolling-type move used is designed to stimulate tissue and nerve pathways, prompting the patient’s body to begin healing. This technique also works to improve circulation and lymphatic drainage, while helping to eliminate toxins and assimilate nutrients.

An essential part of Bowen therapy is the period of rest between motions. This short break allows the nervous system and its corresponding muscles time to reset. This relaxation time is vital in kickstarting the healing process.

Most Bowen therapy sessions last about thirty minutes, with periods of rest in between motions. Acute injuries are treated with an average of two sessions, while more may be necessary to improve chronic disorders. Treatments are spaced at least five to ten days apart to allow the body time to reset and heal.
