Bowen Therapy is the name given to the work taught by Russell Sturgess who studied the soft tissue therapy (Tom Bowen’s) under Ossie Rentsch.
It addresses fascial and connective tissue restrictions in a very gentle and less obtrusive manner by applying transverse (across the) muscle fibre moves in a specific sequence.
This creates a window of opportunity for the fascia to re-hydrate which assists in bringing harmony to the mechanical and physiological functions of the body (the healing response of the connective tissue ie fascia) thereby reducing inflammation, swelling and pain significantly and increasing mobility (due to rehydration of the fascia).
This treatment is suitable for everyone.
Conditions that can be treated include:
- chronic fatigue syndrome
- migraine and headaches
- frozen shoulder
- back and neck problems
- TMJ dysfunction
- Tennis elbow
It is extremely effective during pregnancy.
