Fascia On YouTube

I have attended two very important courses on Fascia of the human body and its vital work in our wellbeing. This information enables me to work in a very subtle way to help the healing and beneficial qualities of Bowen maximize itself within a treatment. Continual research is being conducted into the anatomy of fascia and its affects within our systems.

How Does It Work?

picture of waterThe Bowen moves are light, gentle and very precise. There is no forceful manipulation. The practitioners are able to discern stress build-up in muscles and other soft tissue, enabling them to perform specific Bowen moves to assist recovery and pain relief.
There are frequent but very essential pauses throughout the session that allow the body time to respond and begin the healing process. The practitioner can target a specific problem or address the body as a whole.

A Bowen session initiates a cascade of beneficial changes that continue for several days. Applying other manipulative therapies during this time can interrupt this process and undermine the overall effectiveness of the Bowen work. It is therefore recommended that the client waits a week before commencing any other manual therapy.
