How does Bowen work

Body Structure

Bowen therapy works on the fascia as well as the muscles, tendons and ligaments. Fascia is connective tissue that covers all the structures of the body allowing flexibility and movement between various parts of the body.

Pathways to the brain

When the muscle is gently disturbed it sends sensory information to the brain via thousands of stretch receptors. This gives the brain vital information about the status of the muscle being treated which allows the brain to send corrective information back to the individual muscles.

Scientific research

Neurological research has shown that the brain has areas of “body maps”, which contain your personal “blueprint”. It is believed that the sequences of Bowen moves stimulate the body to repair itself to the blueprint.
