Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (or MS for short) is a condition impacting the body’s central nervous system. Nerve fibres in the nervous system normally transmit messages throughout the body, to and from the brain.  The nerve fibres are wrapped in a fatty sheath called myelin, which insulates the nerve fibres, allowing signals to pass without interference.  With multiple sclerosis this myelin sheath is damaged or destroyed, interfering with or blocking nerve impulses between the brain and spinal cord. This interference of nerve signals between brain and spine can result in a variety of symptoms. Symptoms felt depend on where on the brain and spinal cord the lesions develop.

Did You Know?

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory and neurodegenerative disease affecting approximately 400,000 people in the United States and 2.1 million people worldwide.
  • There is no single test for MS. Doctors use a medical history, physical exam, neurological exam, MRI, and other tests to diagnose it.
  • Almost 70% of patients manifest symptoms between ages 21 and 40.
  • The incidence of MS in first degree relatives is 20 times higher than in general population, suggesting the influence of genetic factors on the disease.

Symptoms & Conditions:

  • Muscle problems and motor control
    The disruption of nerve signals can result in weakened muscles, especially arms and legs. This weakness impacts coordination, balance and functioning of the arms and legs.  Muscle pain, spasm, tremors, and lower back pain is often experienced as a result.
  • Other neurological symptoms
    Some may experience vertigo, pins and needles, neuralgia and visual disturbances.

Other Conditions We Help:

  • Fatigue
  • Continence issues
  • Memory loss, concentration, changes in mood and emotion

How Bowenwork® Helps

Bowen is successful in managing the symptoms of MS, and is thought to slow the progression of the disease.


Bowen suits MS suffers well because it is slow and very gentle and should not result in flare-ups after the session. Bowen helps open the muscle and fascia fibers in the body which increases circulation, improves oxygenation, relaxes tension in the body, and helps reduce inflammation and pain thereby reducing pain, muscle problems, improving motor control, and better sleep.


Bowen has also been found to increase the state of mind and mental clarity by bringing the body back into balance. Many feel improved energy and an ability to cope with daily tasks.


Bowen can also improve continence issues. There are some specific procedures that help reduce inflammation from the pelvis and urinary systems, improve the nerve messaging system to these areas of the body, and help with bowel support.


All of these outcomes greatly improve the symptoms of MS, making Bowen a fantastic therapy option.
