Sports Bowen builds on the principles of the Bowen technique. Simply put, it stimulates the brain to analyse dysfunction within muscles and soft tissue to activate the body's innate healing mechanisms. For example, when you break a limb, the body knows how to heal without our conscious effort. Sometimes it needs a reminder to kick-start the process
Over a period of time, lines of tension build throughout the body in specific directions according to the sporting activity you are engaged in. These lines are made up of fascia (which covers all soft tissue like cling film). When tension builds somewhere along the line, when force is exerted it will hit the point that is weak, causing trauma and injury.
How does Sports Bowen Work? Bowen moves are made along these fascial lines signalling the brain's need to let off tension, improve flexibility and thus creating balance and stability within the body.
Jackie began her career in sports massage, then branched into Bowen Therapy. Sports Bowen brings sports massage to the next level and enhances what she has been doing over the past 10 years.
