The Power of Bowen Therapy
Published - Apr 01, 2019
Bowen Therapy - Stimulate the body to reset, recharge, and heal itself.
Bowen therapy involves gentle movements over soft tissue structures. These precise motions override conscious movement and directly stimulate the body’s parasympathetic (healing) mechanisms.
Here are just a few symptoms that Bowen Therapy can treat:
- Muscle tightness
- Muscle strains
- Myofascial pain
- Joint range-of-motion limitations
- Chronic pain
- Neurological compression
- Sport-specific performance enhancement
- And more.
Don't just take our word for it, here's what one of our patients has to say about the power of Bowen Therapy:
"I have been going to IRG, formally known as Seattle Center for Structural Medicine, for over 3+ years. Being 6'5" I have dealt with lower back issues for over 20+ years and have been on a chiropractor’s table over 200 times. Never again, since my wife turned me on to Bowen Therapy.
Since going to the chiropractor three times a week didn't seem to work much, I was open to trying something different. That is when we found SCFSM, now IRG Center for Structural Medicine.
Now I am able to play golf relatively pain free, I often walk the course, and sometimes playing 36 holes in a day. Never could have done that prior to Bowen. Being that I play golf, tennis, pickleball, softball, basketball and enjoy biking and swimming on a regular basis, my body tends to take a beating.
Looking for a warmer climate to enjoy our retirement, we moved from Seattle to La Quinta, CA, in 2017, but unfortunately have not found a quality local Bowen practitioner.
So when I make my quarterly visits back to Seattle, I contact IRG to set up appointments with Rachel Byrne. I make sure my visits can coincide with two Bowen treatments a week apart.
I really enjoy a physically active lifestyle and I am so grateful to have Bowen to put me back together.
I am now a lifelong Bowen patient as I continually spread the word on the benefits Bowen has brought to my life, along with my wife's. That is the power of Bowen.
