A combination of "massage and acupressure"
Pressure at precise points yet a gentle technique
Bowen Therapy is a hands-on therapy that incorporates a combination of massage, acupressure and a unique muscle rolling technique over the muscle fascia and tendons using the thumb and fingers.
Similar to massage, Bowen is great for relaxation and also has the additional benefit of serving as a treatment for all kinds of body aches and pains. It rapidly releases tension from the body leaving a sense of relaxation.
Bowen Therapy is the therapy that Dr. Leong uses most frequently for pain management because it is fast acting, long lasting, and most of all, very relaxing. The results of Bowen Therapy are usually fast and provides long term relief.
It effectively treats many ailments ranging from stress release to repairing chronic injury. Below is a list of some common conditions that can benefit from Bowen Therapy:
- Back pain
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Hip problems
- Knee and ankle problems
- TMJ, jaw problems
- Headaches and migranes
