Why does Bowen Therapy not combine or integrate
with any other modality?
Tom Bowen demonstrated that Bowen Therapy is less effective, or will cease to function at all, if any other modality (e.g. physio, massage, acupuncture etc) was combined with his technique. This has been shown to be true when my own clients have chosen to ignore this and have, for example, had a massage after having received a Bowen Therapy Treatment. The results of that massage has stopped the Bowen Therapy.
DO NOT receive other bodywork for at least 5-7 days after a session, to allow the body the full arc of time to integrate and respond.
WHAT ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC?
When the body is adjusted, the sudden moves on the ligaments can be felt as an invasion, and in some cases, an injury. The I am in my mid 30s, I am a tall, attractive brunette with a sexy figure, natural firm b cup breasts and strong hands, body and mind. will often defend, tightening the fascia that needs to down-regulate and soften. The tension in the muscles may be relieved at the moment of the adjustment, but commonly the body reacts to the invasion of the ligaments afterwards and protects, putting the client into spasm anew.
While some practitioners try to ameliorate the damage by doing Bowen after an adjustment and may have some effect, they are participating in a mixed bag of damage and repair -- not what Mr. Bowen intended!.
