Bowen Therapy for Autism

I know that I have posted about Bowen Therapy before. When I start learning about some thing that I believe will really benefit people with challenges, or even people without certain challenges, I am like a dog with a bone, I will not give it up!

So yes, I am posting about Bowen Therapy again 🙂 I believe it is a treatment that really works! Anyone who would think that it is rubbish I encourage to try it before you criticize it.bowen_child

Now, please realize that I am going by my own experiences and I am not a doctor of any sorts. If you have been diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum it may take a while before you see any results. It is a process, but in the long-term very well worth it.

Most treatments for children will last anywhere from 15-30 minutes. Sometimes the treatment will take place on a couch, sometimes while on a parent’s lap – the therapist will make allowances for the nature and behavior of each child, especially if remaining still is not an option!

Although sometimes only a few treatments may be needed to help (for instance) a chest infection or sore neck or back, there are many conditions in which Bowen may be needed over a long period of time.

For those with Cerebral Palsy, Autism or chronic conditions, we have found that weekly or fortnightly sessions over much of the year to be of great benefit. Some children respond rapidly, whilst others take more time. We are all individuals.

Many children (and parents) benefit from a few regular treatments every year, to maintain their health as they grow.

Other conditions responding well include ADHD, asthma, bed-wetting, constipation, dyspraxia, growing pains, headaches and muscular-skeletal issues including posture, balance and co-ordination.

PARENTS LOOKING FOR A SUCCESSFUL AND DOCUMENTED MODE OF ALTERNATIVE COMPLIMENTARY THERAPY THAT CAN IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR A CHILD OR YOUNG ADULT WITH SPECIAL NEEDS.

IF YOUR CHILD HAS ANY OF THE LEARNING, SOCIAL DIFFICULTIES, OR OTHER CHARACTERISTICS UNDER THE AUTISTIC SPECTRUM UMBRELLA. ASK QUESTIONS, INFORM YOURSELF AND BE KIND TO YOURSELF.

Positive changes achieved from the inclusion of Bowen Therapy into your child’s care :

✶ Ability to lay on back or front
✶ improved balance, co-ordination
✶ reduced obsessive/repetitive behaviour
✶ improved sleep habits
✶ change in frustration levels
✶ eye contact and change in sense of self

Bowen is a complementary therapy that encourages the body to heal itself, it is natural, drug free and non-invasive. Bowen does not attempt to force the body to change, instead it asks the body to recognise and make the changes that are required.

It is used to help a number of ailments and health conditions such as sports injuries, whiplash, migraines and IBS. Pactitioners make small rolling movements with the use of their fingers and thumbs on precise points on the body.
