Bowen Technique And Scar Tissue Release

What are they?

The Bowen Technique uses a gentle rolling action over soft tissue to potentially create a signal to the brain. The treatment affects the body in ways that promote healing, pain relief and recovery of energy. The experience of the treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing, and it is these features that make the Bowen Technique unique.

What does it involve?

A Bowen treatment lasts approximately 60 minutes. Following a full consultation, your treatment will begin. This consists of specific gentle rolling moves across soft tissue, through light clothing, during which there are unique breaks in the treatment to allow you to rest. This allows the body to rebalance itself.

Tried everything but nothing works?

Why not try the Bowen Technique? Unlike other forms of ‘hands-on’ therapy, there is no pulling or cracking of joints. The technique consists of very precise and gentle moves over muscles and soft tissue. It is generally a very pleasant, relaxing experience with no known adverse side effects.

Scar Tissue Release Technique  
What is it?

Scar Tissue Release Technique is a unique hands-on treatment to normalise scaring, which gives permanent results.  After treatment the scar tissue will not revert back to its original state. The practitioner lightly manipulates the scar tissue, separating the tissue strands to free trapped nerve endings, re-supply blood circulation and improve lymph drainage. 

What is it used for?

Scars are often a permanent reminder of a very traumatic event, whether the scar is the result of a planned surgical operation, or an accident: the body has had a hole cut into it that was not meant to be there, and it requires time to heal: physically and emotionally.  Scars can result in loss of confidence emotionally, and can cause many physical problems after healing, such as numbness of skin, a tingling feeling, or even pain.  Often the area itches, burns or is hypersensitive.  Deep scars can result in postural distortion, a loss of flexibility, and a loss of muscle or tissue wastage.

The scar is created when the skin has been cut and the natural response to the trauma begins.  The body lays down collagen as part of the repair process and this can result in a thickened mass under, and at the sides of the scar, which can impede proper circulation, lymphatic drainage flow, and can result in the severing of delicate nerve tissue.

When is it used?

If a person feels that their scar has a puckered, thick, fibrous look, or feel, around the scar, then it would benefit from having the tissue underneath the scar released.  Also, this is the case if the area is hypersensitive, itchy, or feels as if the area is burning.  If there is a physical pulling or dragging feeling under the skin, (which can actually cause postural distortion at its worst), then the technique could be used.  Old scars, which can interfere with a person’s daily life, react well to the technique

New scars must wait until all the healing has been completed, both on the skin’s surface and underneath before the technique can be performed.
