Bowen Therapy is a gentle soft tissue (fascia and muscle) release technique that follows the osteopathic principle that the structure of the body governs its function. Correcting the structure may lead to improvements in a broad range of physical ailments including muscular, structural and visceral complaints.
During the treatment gentle rolling moves are applied across muscles, ligaments and tendons at specific points in order to trigger a neural response. The amount of pressure used is appropriate for that individual.
Between each set of moves, the body is allowed to rest for a few minutes, to allow it to process the information it has received and initiate the healing process. Many clients become so relaxed they fall asleep during the session.
The Emmett Technique is a gentle muscle release therapy using light finger pressure. This method is applied to specific locations on the body, aiming to initiate the gentle release of heightened tension in muscles and muscle groups.
This can assist in addressing pain and discomfort, and improve body movements.
Gentle moves are used to activate Emmett Points and lead to relief of pains and aches in the body.
In order to get the best out of Bowen or Emmett treatments, they are best applied directly on the skin. Light clothing may be warn if you prefer.
