Bowen and the Elderly

Due to the non-forceful methods practiced by Bowen Therapists, the technique is ideal for elderly people or those in poor health for whom other therapies may not be suitable. The Bowen Technique is a superb complement to most medical treatments as the therapy promotes relaxation, improves circulation as well as stimulating the nervous system and aiding pain relief.

The Bowen Technique can help improve the quality of life and general functioning in older age, for example by:

  • Improving pain and stiffness
  • Improving sleep and appetite
  • Decreasing anxiety
  • Relieving muscle pain
  • Encouraging blood flow
  • Loosen stiff muscles and tissues
  • Improving balance and co-ordination
