The benefits of Bowen in pregnancy and its gentle approach are to ease some of the physical discomfort; muscle tension, joint pain, back pain and much more. Bowen works by allowing greater flexibility in the pelvis and abdomen and also, helps the mother to recover from strains sustained during labour.
As the baby grows, its extra weight results in a changed centre of gravity and posture changes from week to week which means the mother has to cope with symptoms such as back and neck pain. Bowen treatment is safe for the mother and the baby.
Birth is one of the most stressful events of a baby’s life. Problems of labour and delivery may compromise structure and disturb the nervous system. Unresolved strains can lead to a variety of conditions; for example: back pain, vomiting, aching and restless legs, varicose veins, buttock pain, breast pain, tension and headaches, heartburn etc.
