What does Bowen Therapy treatment involve?

You may have heard of the benefits of Bowen Therapy or tried modalities of it before. In the first session, we will assess and treat the whole body rather than just focusing on the local area. The main goal is to achieve a basic balancing of the entire body first, in order to treat the cause of the problem correctly. The next session will start the process of alignment and move towards the area of concern. The lower back area is the foundation to it all.

What will my back pain treatment include?

Chronic back pain may come from how you walk, how you stand or sit and the way you use your major joints. Most treatments are short-lived as they don’t factor these habits in. Other factors that will be taken into account is your pain history and any existing pre-medical conditions. Stephen will ask about your diet and stress level and carry out a general physical assessment to find any asymmetries in your system, such as one leg being longer than the other. Extension Body Therapies in Whangarei will look at all these factors and give you indications on how to adjust your posture, diet and help with stress levels to maintain your body in a pain free state or if necessary refer you to another specialist such as psychologists to help further.
