To function to the best of it's ability, a body needs to be structurally in balance, have a nutritious well balanced diet and have regular exercise. Unfortunately despite our best efforts, the body's ability to function is impaired by the unnatural stresses we put our bodies through. For example, sitting at a desk for most of the day, driving for long periods of time, breathing in fume filled air, sports injuries, work injuries, accidental injuries and exposure to infection.

The stresses a body is put under can cause it to compensate, for example, due to an injury excessive strain is put on another part of the body, or when breathing in fume filled air, the body is receiving less energy than it requires to function to its optimum ability.

The Bowen Technique is a holistic therapy, which has an effect on all systems of the body, assisting in counter-acting the unnatural stresses that we put our bodies under.

Athletes and sports people at all levels,have a vested interest in keeping their body in good condition and functioning to its optimum ability to enable them to continue to play and compete in their chosen field.

The Bowen Technique is being used more and more in the professional sports industry as the process of readjustment and recovery from injury can be very rapid due to the Bowen Technique allowing the body to do the work of readjustment.

Regular treatments of the Bowen Technique can help to prevent injuries by keeping the body in balance

However, it is not just sporting injuries or muscular skeletal injuries and conditions which benefit from the Bowen Technique. As stated previously, the Bowen Technique is a holistic therapy which affects all systems of the body. As a result conditions such as eczema, IBS, Crohn's disease, reproductive problems, depression and migraines have been shown to improve as a result of a Bowen Technique treatment.

Some people use the Bowen Technique as a means of stress management and health maintenance seeing their therapist at regular monthly or quarterly intervals.
