Bowen therapy – new to Docklands
By Mike Edgley - Chiropractor, Docklands Health
Docklands now has a new health modality available. Bowen Therapy is a form of bodywork known for its gentleness and speed of its effects.
Bowen Therapy was developed in Geelong by Tom Bowen following decades of working with athletes and injured labourers. Today practitioners around the world use this gentle technique to treat every type of person from newborns to the elderly and with a wide range of ailments from injury to physical illness such as digestive or respiratory problems.
Daily tasks and movement such as sitting for too long, poor posture or injury from exercise can cause misalignment in your body. Long term this causes compensation, restricting blood flow and movement. Bowen Therapy uses gentle, rolling type moves on specific points of your muscles and soft tissue which release the tension held in your muscles to reset your body’s natural healing ability and allow balance to be restored.
Docklands Health is excited to introduce the newest member of its healthcare team. With years of experience in her own practice, Leila Field adds more knowledge and tools that allow a broader range of treatment options for our community. Leila is passionate about working alongside other professionals to assist her cli- ents to achieve their health goals and live pain free lives.
Bowen Therapy has shown huge improvements when used for pain in backs, necks or shoulders. It may also help with digestive and respiratory illnesses such as asthma, sinus problems, anxiety, chronic fatigue, migraines, fibromyalgia and sciatica.
