I don’t know David Wolfe, but I follow his page/blog. He commonly touches on topics interest that are thoughtful, compassionate and informative. So I was delighted to read his blog today and see him call out Bowen for the chronic pain relief associated with Fibromyalgia.
This is very exciting to see Bowen mentioned and recommended by those outside the Bowen community. It really is a wonder technique that works wonders on all sorts of acute and chronic issues.
Give it a try! It is one of the best natural healing techniques to use.
Many of my friends and clients with Fibromyalgia have shared with me how frustrating their disease. Their frustration comes when they reach out for help and feel like they get nothing or get treated like they are crazy-making it up. And it is confusing stuff– how can you feel bad all over and nothing is “broken”.
But there is work in the scientific community that is explaining how that happens. From my understanding is boils down to too many nerves all in crisis–sending signals that something is wrong. I’m sure that’s a gross oversimplification 🙂 but it’s a model I can work with.
It turns out that Bowen Technique addresses nerve pain, where ever it is. By relaxing the fascia which cradles nerves and all other tissue, nerves get to relax too.
Along with many other chronic disorders, individuals with fibromyalgia can get a great deal of symptom relief using Bowen Therapy. Keeping the muscles and fascia as relaxed and flexible as possible is key!
