When it comes to our health and taking care of ourselves and loved ones, we certainly have a lot to consider. Nutrition, physical and mental exercise, sleep, and our emotional well-being are all important pieces that come together to create a balanced “whole.” What about bodywork? Whether you have pain or other symptoms of something being amiss within the body or are simply looking for ways to maintain an already healthy system, there are many choices available. How do you know what is right for you?
Throughout my lifetime, I have experienced different types of therapies, numerous times each, and found them all to be helpful. Acupuncture, chiropractic care, and massage therapy are three very common approaches that have played an important role in improving my physical, mental, and emotional health. Perhaps, however, you have tried one or all of these therapies and it was not a good fit for some reason, or only provided temporary relief. Bowenwork may be perfect for you!
Bowenwork is a great choice if you:
- Understand the relationship between the nervous system, structure, and function, but you are not keen on the idea of forceful manipulation of the spine or other body parts.
- Are interested in Chinese medicine, acupoints, meridians and free-flow of Qi or energy but are fearful of needles.
- Believe in the power of therapeutic touch but would like to allow your body to decide what to do with that input, rather than letting someone else decide what they think is best for you.
- Believe that your body has the internal ability to heal itself, but you just need a little nudge from an external source.
While Bowenwork is not a silver bullet, it has helped people around the world where other therapies have not succeeded. The combination of the gentle moves and the appropriate pauses provide the ideal circumstances for your body to respond and initiate lasting change. It is safe and beneficial for everyone, including infants, children, pregnant women, athletes, skilled laborers, and the elderly.
