This is method is working on muscles, ligaments, tendons and connective tissue. 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 affect the 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 six weeks duration) have layers of restriction which need to be unravelled to expose the root cause.
Initial treatment usually requires only three or four clinic sessions with management sessions recommended over three months. The method works closely in conjunction with physiotherapists, podiatrists and fitness experts to gain optimum performance and injury prevention.
The Bowen Technique can:
(Research into The Bowen Technique had been accepted for presentation at the first International Fascia Research Conference in Boston, USA in October 2007. The conference was a chance for manual body workers and scientists to come together and try to make sense of what we do. The research explored the effect of Bowen on hamstring flexibility and showed that not only did Bowen indeed increase flexibility, but it actually increased over a period of seven days, something that has never before been demonstrated using manual techniques alone)
