Bowen Technique and Arthritis

Bowen Technique and ArthritisTomorrow, 12th October, is World Arthritis Day. This day was first observed 19 years ago by Arthritis Rheumatism Internation and it is now held worldwide with the aim to get awareness of this condition known about.  It is important that sufferers and carers know where to find help.

To find out what is happening and find out more information visit the World Arthritis Day website.   There is a knowledgebase of helpful details.

Arthritis can be so painful and debilitating as anyone who suffers will tell you.  Mostly you think of it as something that starts as you get older, but it can start at any age.  GP’s spend a lot of their time seeing patients with arthritic pain and are often prescribed with anti inflammatory drugs.

Bowen therapy has been found to help with the symptoms of arthritis and offers a more holistic approach.  Bowen can also help with low mood, and this can be something that goes hand in hand with arthritis.  It is such a gentle approach, and relaxes the whole body.  When we have pain in one area of our body, we tend to over-compensate by using other parts of our body, for instance if we are suffering from pain in our left knee, we will tend to favour our right side to try to relieve the pain.  In doing so we then cause an un-natural stress in our bodies, which then causes issues in other areas.

The way Bowen can help is by relaxing the fascia and thus relieving tension in the surrounding tissues allowing the body to return to a balanced state.  Bowen is a tool to help manage the pain of arthritis along with a good diet, gentle exercise, and treatment from your GP.

Because the Bowen moves are gentle and effective it is very suitable for people of all ages. No forceful manipulation is carried out.  If people are unable to lay on the therapy couch, treatments can be done sitting, and can be carried out through light clothing.

Generally after a Bowen treatment clients tell me that their whole body feels much looser, and that they feel extremely relaxed.  It is not unusual for people to even fall asleep during a treatment.

Bowen treats the whole body, so we are not treating the arthritis, but we are treating you, and you may well be surprised by the benefits that you feel from this amazing therapy.
