Bowen treatments are suitable for individuals of all ages and degrees of health, stimulating the body to heal itself holistically by using its own innate healing mechanisms.
Rather than focus on single complaints Bowen addresses the entire body by restoring balance via the Autonomic Nervous system. Most people today live in the constant state of high stress or anxiety and Sympathetic ANS over-stimulated. (Fight, flight, freeze mode).
Healing can only occur after the ANS shifts from Sympathetic to Parasympathetic dominance (Rest, Relax, Repair mode).
The Bowen technique catalyzes that shift. During sessions, clients often drop into deep relaxation. Bowen sessions seems to reactivate the recovery process in situations where healing from trauma, sickness or surgery has stalled or reached a plateau.
