Do Bowen sessions help with mental health issues?
I have to say: YES! it is a wonderful compliment and enhancement to any therapeutic work done for mental health. Emotional and Mental issues have an effect on the body by tensing muscles, knotting up fascia, binding the visceral organs, interrupting normal hormone flow and disturbing lymphatic and circulatory systems.
What happens in the mind, also happens in the body.
By relieving body stress, the body become more relaxed and functions better. This takes pressure/worry off the mind, allowing an opening and space in the mental and emotional bodies to heal as well. It doesn’t happen overnight, periodic sessions are necessary. But according to my clients, the sessions accelerated their progress and their were very happy with the results.
