HUMAN BOWEN THERAPY -Fascial Kinetics
Bowen Therapy is complementary therapy with no forceful manipulation or deep massage. It is a gentle, non-invasive holistic treatment that helps to re-balance the body and kick start the body's own healing processes. It has few contraindications and is appropriate for almost everyone. It can be applied through loose clothing and a treatment will generally take around 45 minutes.
During a treatment rolling type moves are made over specific points on the body to address the fascia between the muscles and the skin (fascia being a continuous web of connective tissue throughout the body by which cell communication occurs -think the silver outside of a chicken breast). Adhesions within the fibres in the fascia are released, allowing the affected area to become hydrated. This helps the structures within the fascia -nerves, muscles, lymph and blood vessels, and organs to function more efficiently and can lead to improved general health and decreased pain levels.
