How Does It Work?

How Does It Work?

Bowen works by unlocking the body’s ability to heal itself, which may be hampered due to recent injury (birth trauma) or an imbalance in the nervous system.

The Bowen move calls for a response mechanism by the body. The moves aren’t painful and so the defense mechanism isn’t called for. The body is stimulated to look for an appropriate response. In the process of looking, signals are sent out by the nervous system to all areas of the body. These signals cause an increase in blood flow to different areas of the body and an overall resetting of the body to correct any imbalances. This is like pressing the reboot button on your computer!

What Does It Treat?

Baby Bowen addresses all the problems and potential causes of colic or discomfort in babies. It is extremely effective at realigning the spine, in the case of spinal trauma, relieving muscle tension and trapped nerves as well as aiding the baby’s digestive systems.

Baby Bowen acts to rebalance the nervous system in infants. In short, most unsettled babies have an overactive fight or flight response (sympathetic nervous system) that keeps them in a state of constant tension and anxiety.  By rebalancing both the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the nervous system they will feel the immediate effects of calmness and serenity. They will also experience deeper and longer sleep. A life saver for any tired parent!

By working directly on muscle tissue and rebalancing the nervous system Bowen reduces tissue contraction and relaxes tissue muscle. This is very useful when treating umbilical shock. The baby is seen to calm down immediately and the effects of umbilical shock are permanently reversed.

Apart from rebalancing the nervous system, Bowen works directly on the muscles to release any tension. Baby Bowen is very effective at releasing any tension in the diaphragm which is arguably the major contributing factor in colic and is often the most tense. Bowen is extremely effective at relaxing the diaphragm-preventing reflux, hiccups and aiding in the breathing and digestive process.  Many times during a treatment the baby passes wind or fills their nappy without any effort.

  • calmness
