Bowen Technique

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.

What is The Bowen Technique?

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do our members say?

"Accessing the Centre’s services had helped to slow down the progression of my MS. I know that I would deteriorate if I didn't have it."

"The support I get at the Centre is particularly important now my MS has changed from relapsing / remitting to progressive. I've gone from being a person who could walk from here to anywhere you like to a person who is very reluctant to stand."
