Pregnancy & Fertility Bowen Therapy

What is Pregnancy Bowen Therapy?

The Bowen Therapy is an innovative hands-on technique that can play an important role in the health care of the mother and baby during all stages of pregnancy. The Bowen Technique is one of the only therapies that can be performed in its entirety with the patient sitting or lying on their side and up to labour. During pregnancy the mother has to adapt to provide space for the growing baby. Ligaments will soften and her weight will increase. This will affect her centre of gravity and her posture creating stresses and strains throughout the body.
The spine and pelvis are particularly vulnerable areas during pregnancy, with expected mothers suffering from pubic symphasis, sacroiliac pain, achy legs or any of the below conditions:
  • Backache
  • Sciatica
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea/ dizziness
  • Breathlessness
  • Heartburn
  • Pain under ribs

Safe Therapy

The treatment does not hurt and 100% safe, it has no contraindications. The treatment itself works by releasing tension within muscles by working over trigger point areas of the body. Alternative would be looking at the grocery bag where you have few other bags with different vegetables and fruits. When some if it get sticky within the bags it has no sliding motion in the grocery bag. Same is with muscles. Generally muscles should slide and glide, when we have those movements we have full range of movement in our system. When we have sluggish range of movements this is when those bags became thick and sticky, and when tissues start swelling and dehydrating. This in itself creates a lot of restriction within the body, pain, aches, stiffness which overtime resorts in sciatica or nerve’s restriction.
