THE BOWEN TECHNIQUE
CANINE BOWEN THERAPY
The therapist makes gentle but firm rolling moves over specific points of the body which create a disturbance in the layers of 'fascia', a type of connective tissue which is rich in nerve receptors. The session is interspersed with 2 minute breaks which allow the brain & nervous system to process, recalibrate & effect changes within the body.
Typical results reported by clients after a series of 2 to 4 successive sessions are notable reductions in pain or discomfort, reduced stiffness & increased range of movement, improved sleep patterns & a general boost to overall wellbeing.
A typical session addresses all muscle groups from the legs, into the abdomen, up the spine to the upper body, neck & head. Subsequent sessions may focus on more specific areas depending on the client's presenting symptoms.
The Bowen Technique is a holistic therapy - we do not aim to treat specific symptoms or conditions but to look at the person/dog & the body as a whole connected system. During a therapy session we take into account every aspect of a person/dog's life, such as medical history, diet, lifestyle, sleep patterns, excercise etc.
