BOWEN FOR MOTHERS

Bowen Therapy has a very important role to play in the health care of women both during and after pregnancy. The Bowen Technique (Bowen Therapy) is integral for Mothers-To-Be as it is one of the only therapies that can be performed in its entirety with the patient sitting down or lying on their side.

As the centre of gravity changes during pregnancy, so do the stresses on the spine.  Many problems suffered during pregnancy may be directly related to the health of the spine. Common pregnancy pains are easily and gently relieved almost immediately with Bowen Therapy and is very relaxing for the expectant mother.

Bowen Technique has been shown to help:

Relieve Low Back Pain and Sciatica • Prevent Breech Birth • Reduce Possible Caesarean Birth • Relax the Pelvis • Morning Sickness • Gastric Discomfort • Varicose Veins • Cramping and Aching Feet • Pain in Legs or Groin • Constipation • Regulate Milk Supply – Under or Over Production • Mastitis • Any Breast Area Discomfort • Lymphatic Congestion • Colic in the Baby • Misalignment of the Spine • Restlessness • Aching legs • Headaches • Fatigue • Nausea / Dizziness • Breathlessness • Heartburn • Decreased energy levels

Bowen Therapy can treat all common pregnancy pains!

The spine and pelvis of an expectant mother are particularly vulnerable because of the stress of carrying an unborn baby. Hormonal changes make the pelvis suppler during the latter part of pregnancy. This is when the terrible back aches seem to not only intensify, but also appear more frequently as the baby gets heavier. The instability of the pelvis can lead to other strains being felt in the spine and supporting muscles and ligaments.


Pregnancy can create new problems but can also exacerbate existing ones! 


The process of childbirth puts tremendous stresses and strains on the musculoskeletal system. This includes the spine, pelvis, supporting muscles and ligaments.  As these structures are suppler for some time after birth due to the hormonal changes, there may be an increased susceptibility to injury.  The birth itself can leave the mother in a lot of lower back and pelvic pain. There is also the added strain on the spine whilst nursing, feeding and caring for the baby.

Most procedures of Bowen Therapy can be performed on an expectant mother almost up until labour begins. After the mother has given birth, there are certain Bowen moves which can be performed with a few hours. These moves help to calm the body and aid the body in returning to its natural state, prior to pregnancy.
