Bowen therapy is being increasingly recognized as a valuable tool in the treatment and healing of sports injuries.
Bowen encourages the body’s own healing systems to resolve dysfunctions and restore musculo-skeletal balance. It can be used prior to or after training programs. Bowan also helps to achieve a “whole body balance”, which assists in improvement and maintenance of your performance.
In the sporting world Bowen Therapy is being used more and more by elite athletes, not only to treat injuries, but also to help prevent them. It has also been shown to improve “post competition” recovery times. Any musculo-skeletal injury can be treated, as well as tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, repetitive strain injuries, to name but a few. Improvement can be immediate, i.e. as soon as the athlete gets off the treatment table. Most acute injuries respond quickly and may require up to three treatments, chronic injuries may take a little longer.
Most athletes recognize that if their body is in balance, they have more stamina and suffer fewer injuries, and they are also able to focus and control the stress response, which results in an improved performance.
