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 can 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.
Bowen gentle works fascia and muscles to increase fluid transport and communication throughout the body. And gentle, is a key word here. Fascia is kind of like corn-starch paste: if you try to move it hard and fast, the paste (fascia) resists like it’s make of hard clay. 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.
