Can kids have Bowen therapy too?

Recently I had a delightful young family travel from a country town several hours away to purchase Step Forward Orthotics. Both the Mum and one of the sons needed orthotics and while we were discussing the results of their footprints, we began talking about Bowen therapy. The parents had both had great success with their aches and pains being relieved by a local Bowen therapist in their town.

When I pointed out a few signs of possible pain in the young boy’s body from his footprint, they were amazed. The son had experienced injuries and pain in exactly those areas in his body from sport and minor accidents and falls when playing with his friends. When I asked if he had ever had Bowen they said “No, had never actually thought of it for him.  We didn’t realise kids could have it too.” So I asked permission to do some Bowen therapy on him, and up he hopped onto the treatment table, very excited about the whole idea!

Children love Bowen therapy, their little bodies are so open and receptive to the technique that a session is very quick. Their body just accepts the new information and goes about making the adjustments and realigning without having to wade through the toxins and tension that adults hold in their bodies. He thoroughly enjoyed his experience, said he “felt he was floating and was sooooo relaxed!” He said it was the best thing he had ever felt happen in his body. Once he was up and about he could feel his body was softer, moving easily and felt more even and balanced. I encouraged his parents to continue with another 2 sessions with their local Bowen therapist.

Children are very resilient, and often after a fall or injury when playing, they just get up and keep on playing, not wanting to miss out on any fun. However, lots of these little (or big) incidents over time can build up into areas of tightness and pain.

I always made sure I gave my own sons  Bowen/NST therapy whenever they had a fall or hard contact when playing sport etc, just to release the memory of that injury from their cells as quickly as possible. Some clients comment that they have memories, sensations  or flashbacks of when they had the original injury, as their body works its way back through the events and releases the trauma. Such an interesting, fascinating technique!! And one that is still revealing its power through research and testimonials from around the world.

I have treated many children and they all respond quickly and love the way it makes them feel.Bowen can treat all sorts of sore spots in the body, shoulders, knees, back, headaches, asthma, digestive issues, sinus. Now that you know all this, remember you can bring your children for Bowen/NST to keep their bodies happy, healthy and aligned too!
