Bowen helps the body absorb and distribute nutrients more effectively. Through lymphatic drainage, it helps the body eliminate toxins and regain its ideal hormonal and metabolic balance. In this way it can also be very helpful for those who are trying to lose weight or improve their digestive health.
Bowen can be an ideal complement to gym activity. If an individual suffers from stress-related hormonal and metabolic imbalances, a regular gym workout on its own can have little impact on improving weight or fitness. This is because the 'stressed' body is not able to absorb nutrients effectively and therefore it stores fat supplies.
By contrast, Bowen Therapy facilitates the body to efficiently eliminate toxins and properly digest and absorb nutrients, reducing the need for body to store fat, thereby restoring the effectiveness of your workout. Everyone responds to Bowen work according to what his or her body needs in order to heal. Often a person's body begins to respond almost immediately in most cases after only a few gentle moves over muscles and other soft tissues, healing can begin.
