Bowen for Kids
Bowen for Kids - How does it work?
Children are magical, remarkable and at times just plain difficult. Working with them reminds me how we all pretty much started out: unencumbered by emotional/mental/physical wounding, receptive, honest and completely uncensored - just natural and balanced our true state of being...
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. If untreated these injuries get locked into the cellular memory of the body causing blockages and all sorts of potential problems in the long term. Bowen not only taps into those memories but it gently allows one to release and heal simultaneously.
Children are open to Bowen and their bodies accept the treatment, adjust and realign quickly without having to wade through various layers of toxicity and tension that adults hold in their bodies.
The following conditions which have been reported to respond well to Bowen Therapy include:
Allergies, ADD, ADHD, Autism, Asthma, Bed-wetting, Cerebral Palsy, Chest infections, Clicky Hips, Colic, Constipation, Croup, Dyspraxia, Eczema, Glue-ear, Growing Pains, Headaches, Muscular-Skeletal Issues, Panic Attacks, Psoriasis, Sinusitis and Stress.
It may also aid posture, balance, improved concentration and coordination; improve sleep patterns and the after effects of trauma e.g. difficult birth, accident, family breakdown, death of a loved one.
Some childhood ailments may require regular Bowen treatments.
A child's Bowen treatment is very gentle and can take anywhere from 30 mins to 1.5 hrs. Many report finding it a pleasant and relaxing experience. All treatments are carried out through light clothing, whilst the parent / guardian remains in the room.
