I LOVE Bowen Therapy- I think it is brilliant and I KNOW it works. There is no but…But…we are an impatient population. We have sort of gotten used to the practice of immediate gratification. Make me feel better right now. Then I don’t have to think about it anymore- for now. We are busy, right? Who has time for anything else? When it comes to aches and pains-pop a pill, cut it out. Eliminate the pain now! When it comes to injuries popping a pill is only ignoring the problem til the pill wears off, then there is another pill and another…all the while not even addressing the problem. Or we take the route of invasive techniques- it’s “broken”, we gotta fix it! Not even giving the body an honorable mention for being able to fix itself with a little help.
I honor all manual/natural therapists- massage therapists, physical therapists, acupuncturists, and the list goes on- our goal is to help your body return to pain-free health with our craft- our skills and talents. We often accomplish amazing things, simply because our bodies WANT to heal and so with a little encouragement they often do.
Here’s the thing: manual and/or natural therapies and remedies for the most part do not afford us immediate gratification. It takes time and patience. The result though, is a body that has returned to optimum functioning in its original state.
Sometimes invasive techniques are required- the knee truly is blown out, the structure of the hip is so damaged that it cannot repair itself. Thankfully this country is full of very talented surgeons. I appreciate them too. Even after surgery though, the body could use some help restoring the best possible balance. Before or after surgery I encourage using manual therapies to help along the way. This gives our blessed bodies the best chance we can for full and complete recovery. At your Service~
