At Vitalia Health Care in Vancouver, between 3 and 5 sessions of Bowen therapy – lasting less than an hour each – has been proven effective in returning the body to a pain-free, relaxed state. Bowen therapy is successful at treating a number of health problems, including joint and muscle pain, back and knee pain, as well as other issues like carpal tunnel syndrome, allergies and infertility.
How Bowen Therapy Helps
Bowen therapy is performed on the deep fascia, or soft tissue. Used on everyone from newborns to the elderly, this holistic treatment aims to treat the patient as a whole, focusing on the cause of the problem instead of simply treating the symptoms. If you suffer from any type of pain, including chronic pain, you may find a few sessions of Bowen therapy beneficial. Bowen therapy often provides rapid, long-term relief and is known to improve a number of ailments, including:
- Joint mobility
- Lymphatic and venous draining
- Normalization of tissue integrity
- Elimination of toxins
- Assimilation of nutrients
Bowen Therapy Treatment
Consisting of a series of small movements applied at various pressures, Bowen therapy is usually gentle and pleasant to the patient, as therapists use light manoeuvers on the tendon, muscle and ligament. Bowen therapy is known as an ongoing therapy. While most patients find relief after just one session, most can expect a better step towards recovery after at least three sessions. Additional treatments may be necessary for patients that have chronic or long-standing conditions, or have repeat injuries. Periodic sessions of Bowen therapy can help maintain body integrity and prevent problems.
Balancing the Mental & Physical
Bowen therapy has been found successful in safely addressing a wide range of health problems, from back pain to general fatigue. It aims to provide a balance between the mental, physical and emotional planes. Bowen therapy can be used to treat various conditions, including the following:
- Acute and chronic fatigue

After Bowen Therapy
Bowen therapy can continue to work on your body for up to ten days following a treatment by a professional. During this time, the healing energies continue to flow through your body to help relieve pain naturally. On the day of the treatment, it’s best not to sit for longer than 30 minutes at a time and you should not do any vigorous exercise or sports. Avoid applying any cold or heat packs to your injury and avoid hot showers. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day to stay hydrated. The gentle and non-invasive method of Bowen therapy will help to leave you feeling relaxed and regenerated both mentally and physically. It’s all about helping your body heal itself.
