How does the Bowen Technique work?

This is a soft tissue therapy working on muscles, ligaments and tendons.  The release experienced in the muscle bed allows the muscle to relax, gain length and be able to receive adequate blood supply and essential oxygen. Sports performers are often unbalanced.  Single muscles can seize creating wider problems in the groups that surround them.  This will directly influence range of movement, create restriction and often pain.  Acute injuries need to be addressed to make sure the body does not compensate for the damage and develop other difficulties.  Chronic injuries (those of more than 6 weeks duration) have layers of other restrictions which need to be unravelled to access the root cause.

Initial treatment requires only three or four sessions with management sessions recommended every three months.
