The Bowen Technique and Neurostructural Integration Technique (NST) involves deep ‘rolling’ movements of the muscles and soft tissue. Reduced mobility and muscle imbalances in MS can result in severe pain and stiffness.
Some common examples of such conditions that can be treated are neck and shoulder pain, sciatica, hip pain, range of movement in arms, back pain, headaches and breathing difficulties.
The Bowen Technique is a hands-on therapy that works on soft tissue including muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin and fascia (connective tissue).
Deep, gentle rolling movements at precise positions in the body elicits a surge in blood flow and increase in lymphatic drainage at the target area that results in: Tissue repair, Pain reduction, Muscle softening, Increased flexibility and range of movement
In MS, it is common for pain to be labelled as neuropathic, but some of this pain might actually be due to muscle imbalance and tension as the body tries to adjust to the weakening of some areas.
This type of compensatory pain can be alleviated by the Bowen Technique, which can restore balance in muscle use.
