It is important to follow the aftercare guidelines to get the most benefit from your treatment.
Treatment has a detoxifying effect on the body, to help this please do the following:
Drink plenty of water.
Please limit caffeine and alcohol intake.
Move around often so you are not sitting for more than 30 minutes at a time
Practice any exercises you have been given
You may feel stiff and uncomfortable for a couple of days after a treatment. Don't worry. This is a normal reaction to the Bowen and is your body detoxifying itself and finding its better self. If you are experiencing a lot of pain please do not rub the area, or use hot or cold treatments on the area. Instead, take pain relief or Arnica if needed. If the pain persists after a few days and you are worried or in a lot of pain please get in touch.
Following a treatment please try to avoid:
Long hot baths - a warm bath for no longer than 10 minutes will be OK
Hot Power showers. Try a gentle flowing shower that is not too hot
While having Bowen Therapy please do not have any other form of bodywork. The Bowen Technique sends specific messages to the body to initiate a healing response, any other manipulation could interfere with the Bowen work and stop it being effective. If you would like to have a massage, reflexology, acupuncture, physiotherapy, or any other form bodywork therapy please wait until we have finished working together before starting something else.
