Bowen Therapy for Women's Health

Bowen Therapy has been used to help with a wide range of Women's Health issues ranging from fertility to the menopause. I have been absolutely thrilled to help clients with fertility issues and hearing their positive pregnancy news is always very exciting. This was a wonderful email I received from a very happy client which absolutely made my day.

“My life has changed so much since last time I saw you (in a good way ) and you were part of this. After we finished working together, I made some changes in my life, I become pescatarian, I started to be a bit more kind to myself when I needed and I enjoyed my "time of the month" pain free. On 17th of June we found out I was pregnant and 2 weeks ago we were told that we will be having a baby boy due on 21 of February”

Fertility issues appear to be focused on the brain-pituitary-ovarian axis. Stress, negative emotions, and unbalanced FSH disrupt the hormonal communication between the brain, pituitary, and ovaries. Sympathetic overdrive decreases ovarian blood flow and egg production as well. This is where the Bowen Technique excels-rebalancing the nervous system to increase parasympathetic activity leading to a balancing out of hormones, decreased stress levels and increased blood flow throughout the body. Bowen can also be used alongside all fertility treatments such as Clomid challenge, IUI and IVF.

Though virtually all women experience menopause, it has remained taboo for many women. Hormonal changes during menopause typically bring unpleasant symptoms, but relatively few women talk about or address their menopause symptoms. On average, most symptoms last around 4 years from your last period. However, around 1 in every 10 women experience them for up to 12 years. I have also worked with several clients with different aspects of the menopause. I recognise that this can be a very difficult time and affect us all very differently. Bowen Therapy for the menopause treats the body as a whole and has been shown to help with various symptoms including hot flushes, tiredness, anxiety, sleeplessness and many other hormonal issues. Everyone is different and the number of sessions required will often vary. Often three are sufficient as this lady found. To find out more about the menopause please read my blog.

“I can highly recommend Lee, she treated me for menopause issues and was amazing. After three sessions the hot flushes had gone and so had the ice-cold feelings, not to mention the lower back pain and tight shoulders! I was also sleeping much better. Lee is very knowledgeable about the body and helped me with some posture issues and better sitting positions also. Thank you, Lee.”
