The body is a miraculous machine, and is capable of withstanding an incredible amount of trauma. Bu sometimes the trauma often takes its toll in ways that are not immediately apparent. Therefore, the best method of handling such stress is to allow our nervous system to have the time and rest that it requires to be able to heal on its own.
Bowen Therapy In Details
The basic principle behind Bowen Therapy is that it helps to encourage the human body to go into a state of self healing, rather than applying high dosage medicines. This is accomplished through relaxation techniques and mild stimulation. This is a specialised therapy which does not require a large amount of physical contact between the practitioner and the patient. It is not like acupuncture, and other similar treatments that are based in the Oriental tradition. Bowen Therapy requires very little equipment to carry out the treatment effectively. The result is an absolute long lasting pain relief which does not take much time to attain.
Bowen Therapy Operates On The Idea That:
Our nervous system manifests anxiety and stress in the form of pain, which is experienced in a number of ways. Whenever the nervous system goes into a state of rest, it becomes more capable of dealing with and processing the external stimuli that is the primary cause of overload.
The therapists generally use their thumbs to apply gentle pressure on the strategic points in the connective tissue of our body. These points may be located anywhere on the back, face, or hands of a patient depending on the type of symptoms he/she is experiencing.
The Process of Bowen Therapy
Bowen therapy is applied on a patient to stimulate key flow points of the body’s natural energy cycle in order to relax it, and return it to a state of peaceful well-being. Bowen Therapy requires no needles, and as such is probably the best choice for someone who is perhaps a bit squeamish. After applying pressure on the strategic points of nervous system, the physician usually takes a brief leave of absence and allows the patient to be alone and quiet, for creating a relaxing environment.
Through this, the therapist helps the patient to experience the release of pressure from the nervous system. The rush of energy and emotion are likely to take place immediately afterward.
Bowen therapy is a traditional and natural way of treatment through which a body is healed from trauma and stress.
