Bowen Therapy uses no oil and is gentlein comparison with many therapies such as deep tissue massage. It can be used on chronic and fresh injuries where other therapies are not appropriate.
For example, if there is increased inflammation and swelling after an injury around the joint, Bowen therapy can assist in normalising blood and lymph flow, reduce inflammation and thereby improve joint function.
No manual therapy is indicated during this important and sensitive healing time, other than Bowen therapy due to it's self-healing and gentle treatment.
Often one to 3 treatments is sufficient for healing and successful results, with follow up treatments for general maintenance and prevention on a regular basis.
Please note this is on an individual basis and some conditions require longer treatment plan.
