Recover From Injury Using the Bowen Technique in Ipswich
Many people are overwhelmed by the many possible avenues for recovery after an injury or accident. The Bowen technique has joined the likes of massage and physical therapy as a non-invasive approach to relieving pain, strain, and encouraging healing.
The recovery and healing process is often the most challenging phase of any major surgery or injury. To aid this process, and prevent future injury, AP Therapies offers expertise in the Bowen technique for anyone in Ipswich, or the surrounding Queensland area.
This method, developed originally in the 1950s by Tom Bowen, uses small, rolling motions under the guidance of an expert practitioner, followed by short periods of rest to allow the body to “reset.” These subtle movements, now known as the Bowen technique, are used to release muscle spasms and tension, which can cause pain and slow the healing process.
Expert outdoorsman Bear Grylls has benefitted from the Bowen technique after his own back surgery and many days and nights roughing it in the wilderness. In a 2007 interview for the Daily Mail, Bear described the experience: "With the slightest squiggle of her fingers, it felt like petrol was being put back in my tank and I could feel all the stress seeping away. More importantly, after my back accident, my spine and pelvis had lost alignment, so I felt unbalanced."
AP Therapies offers sessions using the Bowen technique in Ipswich, Queensland, for chronic pain and injury sufferers. Andrea Plumb, a qualified Remedial Massage and musculoskeletal therapist, helps her patients focus on correct posture, alignment, and the elimination of tension and strain using a variety of therapies, including Bowen therapy.
