Bowen Therapy for Senior Citizens
Growing old can and should be a graceful process. However, as we age we have an expectation that we will become less flexible and develop a variety of aches, pains and conditions which can be very painful, uncomfortable, frustrating, distressing, unsightly and sometimes even downright embarrassing. Many of these can be managed or even reversed with Bowen Therapy.
Bowen Therapy is helpful in reducing and managing pain resulting from the degeneration of bones in the spine and joints. The degeneration cannot be reversed or fixed, but the muscles can be supported by Bowen. If our muscles are as free as they can be to work properly and be flexible whilst supporting the skeletal system fully, then we will hopefully maintain a good pain free range of movement.
Other conditions where Bowen may assist is with foot problems such as hammer toes and bunions. These are caused by very long term postural problems and take a long time to correct. Bowen recommends a long course of treatments as well as strapping and/or nightly soaking for these conditions, and improvement is very gradual. Some stretching or gentle exercises may be suggested to correct the postural imbalance which may otherwise maintain these foot conditions.
Arthritis is a painful affliction which also reduces flexibility. Regular Bowen Therapy is able to manage the pain of arthritis in some cases, and other supplements may be suggested to help the situation.
One of the beautiful benefits of Bowen which is experienced by most clients is that sleeping patterns are improved. Getting sufficient rest at night is essential for happiness, healing and health. Many people find that just by easing pain a little and getting more sleep makes such a difference to their enjoyment of life.
If you have respiratory or digestive problems Bowen may assist. We have procedures that address asthma, indigestion, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, incontinence and the list goes on. These procedures are gentle and often very successful. There are also some natural remedies that may be suggested which will support the body to correct these conditions.
Bowen Therapy is gentle and safe for all ages. It can can be administered whilst you are sitting in a chair if you cannot lie on a massage table, and there is ramp access to our clinic. If you require any additional assistance please do not hesitate to explain this when you make your appointment. Depending on time available and the situation, home visits may be available.
