There is a wide range of issues that women face, particularly during developmental years through menopause. Bowen can help resolve many.
Bowenwork® is a safe and comfortable modality that helps women with the wide range of issues they face over the course of their female development. The gentle and precise system of touches called ‘Bowen moves’ are performed over clothing. Bowenwork® resets the messages in the brain, turning them into powerful healing messages and creating a positive change that lasts.
Bowenwork® is truly holistic and moves to balance the entire human body…no matter how old it is. All those issues that go along with our reproductive system and hormonal changes from our teen years, to fertility and pregnancy, and through menopause.
Bowen works to balance the balance hormones in the body, relax muscles, tension and stress, increase blood flow, and assist with lymphatic drainage. Bowenwork® can also be used to assist fertility by balancing the natural flow of body processes necessary for ovulation, conception and a healthy pregnancy. During pregnancy, Bowen helps with postural alignment by keeping the woman’s musculoskeletal system flexible and balanced, which helps with the pelvic adjustments needed for a comfortable baby and reducing pain and discomfort for mama.
The result of Bowenwork® for women is consistent moods and energy, ease of menstruation, hormonal stability, less anxiety, less frustration, better sleep, and less pain.
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.
