The Bowen Technique, being a “light touch” technique, is very suitable for children, and can help to alleviate a number of conditions including asthma and colic.
Treatments have been reported to help children to relax, become calmer, and less anxious. Treatments may also help to improve sleep patterns, improve focus and concentration and may assist with the enhancement of motor control and behaviour.
The Bowen Technique and fascia procedures have been reported to be beneficial to children with special needs, including those with cerebral palsy, dyspraxia and those on the autistic spectrum.
Some symptoms for children which have been observed to respond well to Bowen Therapy include:
- Growing Pains
- Muscular-Skeletal Issues
- Stress & anxiety
Benefits may include:
- better concentration,
- improved sleeping patterns,
- enhanced motor control & behaviour
All treatments are carried out through light clothing, whilst the parent / guardian remains in the room. Treatments usually last between 30 and 45 minutes.
