Shaking off Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s is a favor topic of mine.  It turns out that regardless of which route is taken in the Parkinson’s battle, Bowen Therapy Parkinsonscan help with a multitude of symptoms.  This is good, because Parkinson’s seems to be very individual as to what, when, how severe the symptoms become.

If you more the same paste (fascia) slowly and gently, it gives and relaxes in the most delicious way, allowing extracellular fluid to flow more freely, delivering nourishment and healing.  Muscles and nerves will act more “normally” as their neighboring tissues become more balanced.

Results using Bowen are best achieved from multiple sessions, schedule a week or two apart.  Each session builds on the last.

Bowen Practitioners who display gentleness, patience and love, will be skilled and supportive companions on Parkinson’s journey. Parkinson’s disease has no cure but I’m sure the symptoms can be managed to promote a better quality of life.

 

Making the connection between chronic pain and muscle tension with Bowen Therapy

I found this nice short article that talks about using Bowen Therapy to make the connection between the muscle tone (tense/relaxed) sensors (golgi bodies) and the signals that are sent to them via the nervous system. Most often chronic pain is due to muscles that are too continuously too tense.  These tense muscles pull the their… Continue Reading

Harvard study shows that mechanical stimulation shown to repair muscles

  Results from a Harvard study: Muscle regeneration through mechanical stimulation may one day replace or enhance drug- and cell-based regenerative treatments, Harvard bioengineer David Mooney, the study’s senior author. “The results of our new study demonstrate how direct physical and mechanical intervention can impact biological processes and can potentially be exploited to improve clinical… Continue Reading
