If Bowen can help Bear Grylls keep doing what he does, then there must be something in it for anyone. This is a link to the BTPA website article which explains more.
Bowen therapy is a soft tissue remedial therapy that involves the therapist using fingers or thumbs to move over muscle, ligament, tendon and fascia in various parts of the body. This therapy can be effective to help relieve everyday stresses and revitalise the whole person. Each Bowen therapy session varies according to the particular problems of the client. By focusing on the lower and mid back and legs, the upper back, shoulders and the neck, a sense of wellbeing can be achieved, helping relaxation, aiding sleep – helping to remove everyday stress and anxiety that can make us feel under-par or prevent us functioning at our optimum.
It is important to choose a qualified Bowen therapist who has undertaken all the necessary training to understand the theory and practice of Bowen therapy.
You can check whether a Bowen therapist is registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) by searching the register at www.cnhc.org.uk. By choosing Bowen therapists registered with the CNHC you can be confident that they are properly trained, qualified and insured.
Also, ask to see your therapists certificates to give you extra peace of mind that they are keeping up to date.
