Our very own Agnes, her ‘Sunday name’ being Agnieszka Chojnacka, has been extending her soft tissue knowledge and experience and is now fully qualified in the Bowen Technique… Congratulations Aggie! 🙂
Agnes has spent the last year training with the long-established College of Bowen Studies and is excited to be starting her new Bowen treatments at NIHP Durham in Sacriston.
What is the Bowen Technique?
Sometimes also called Bowen Therapy, Agnes will make gentle, non-invasive moves across very particular areas of muscles, ligaments, tendons and connective tissue aiming to carefully trigger particular nerve endings.
These nerve endings are involved with the tension of muscles which hold us in correct alignment.
When this function is compromised by physical injury, poor posture, emotional injury or constant stress, symptoms often follow. These can range from a “bad back”, stiffness, actual joint injury, headaches, asthma, irritable bowel, whiplash and many others.
Agnes’ skill is knowing which muscles and tendons to treat that will create the landslide response that brings back function; rather like following a piece of string back through the forest to home, or knocking down a row of dominoes!
In our experience, lots of conditions have shown to respond well to Bowen Therapy:
