How the Bowen Technique works
Bowtech is a mechanism of specific moves made on the fascia.
These moves regulate and free the fascia, making possible the activation of body’s initiate healing mechanism.
More over, invisible sensory receptors exist in our bodies, that give us the perception for our position and our movements. They can be found inside tissues, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. There is a particular receptor, the pain receptor, which is located in the fascia and is the catalist of Bowtech technique.
When the body is injured, the aesthetic receptors of pain send a message to the brain, informing about the injured area. The brain processes the message and sends back new information to the injured area causing muscle contraction and inflammation so that the healing process can start. In cases where the pain persists for more than two days, the fascia of the muscle remains shrinked to protect the affected area. This causes a malfunction or limitation in the movement of the tissue surounding the area. Due to the contraction of the fascia, high pressure and obstruction of blood and lymph vessels comes as a result, causing edema and malfunction in body’s systems.
This is where Bowenwork technique contributes, with the use of specific moves. These movements, made at specific points on the body, are helping the re-alignment of the fascia and the proper flow of nutrients conducting the healing and the well function of the area.
