1. What is Bowen Therapy?
Bowen Therapy is revolutionary soft-touch therapy that stimulates the body’s own ability to heal itself. It incorporates a series of muscle manipulation, or ‘moves’, to encourage the autonomic nervous system (ANS), which controls over 80% of bodily functions, to shift from sympathetic over-stimulation (also known as “fight or flight mode”) to parasympathetic dominance (a state of rest and repair).
2. Does Bowen cure disease?
No. Bowen stimulates the body’s own ability to heal itself. Though many people have reported back with amazing results, each case is different. Bowen cannot and will not claim that it will be the case for everyone.
3. What benefits will Bowen have on my current practice?
4. Can I get continuing education credits (CEUs) if I take the Bowen course(s)?
Most states allow it, but each state differs. The easiest way to find out is to check your state policies.
5. Do I have to have a license to do Bowen?
Again, each state differs. Check your state policies for more information.
6. How does Bowen Therapy save me money?
Since Bowen Therapy can be done through light clothing, you don’t need to spend your hard-earned money on expensive oils or laundry. In fact, it makes you money because you can see from 3 to 5 clients at a time.
7. Can my clients still take medications when they do Bowen?
Yes. Bowen has no effect on their medications.
8. Who can benefit from Bowen?
People of all ages and various states of health can benefit. Because Bowen is a soft-touch therapy, even infants have benefited from it.
9. Do my clients need to take their clothes off?
No. Bowen Therapy can be done through light clothing.
10. Who can take the Bowen Therapy courses?
Anyone can, even someone who wants to learn the techniques to help family members. Professionals such as physical therapists, holistic nurse therapists, massage therapists, chiropractors, naturopathic doctors and even MDs who are leaning toward natural health options can improve their practice with Bowen Therapy.
