Many cases of childhood and adolescent scoliosis go unnoticed due to the curvatures being so slight and because the some scoliosis patients do not suffer physical pain. Scoliosis is often not discovered until the curves have progressed to a more obvious state.
Most scoliosis patients have one or more of the following:
It is important that any person diagnosed with scoliosis be under the care of a medical professional. Bowenwork® can work alongside your medical professional, as complementary care. Tom Bowen worked extensively with patients with spinal curvatures and has profound, documented results. We too, at Bowenwork® For Healing, have successful cases of spinal curvatures being corrected and pain diminishing.
Bowenwork® is a system of touch that initiates a series of responses through stimulation of the nervous, musculoskeletal, fascial and energetic systems of the human body. Practitioners perform sequences of small stimulations, called “moves”, on specific points on the body, interspersed with rest periods.
The Bowenwork® moves stimulate mechanoreceptors (nerve endings) that overlie both muscles and acupoints. The body’s response to this stimulation, which begins during the rest periods, includes a balancing of the autonomic nervous system and changes in the musculoskeletal system in the direction of increased symmetry. These effects, in turn, remove blockages to the free flow of energy in the body.
From the point of view of complementary health care, when the body’s nervous and energetic systems are in balance, its physical, emotional and mental functions are able to return to a healthy state.
