Bowen Therapy - Investing in your health | Mildura Intimate Boudoir Photography
If you have never heard of Bowen Therapy before, you are not alone.
Prior to local Bowen Therapist Lisa Tessier posting on a business callout on the Pure Beauty Facebook page, I didn’t know what it was either.
Pure Beauty reached out to Lisa to gain some insight on what the form of holistic remedial body technique does and the philosophy behind it.
As Lisa explained to me, Bowen Therapy is a hands on, holistic, soft tissue therapy.
“It uses gentle rolling movements over different muscles, tendons, fascia and joints that initiate a healing response in the body,” she continued.
“It manually gives the body a break from flight, fight or freeze."
“It hits that reset button and drops your nervous system down into rest, digest and heal (parasympathetic nervous system).”
Lisa discovered Bowen Therapy in her early teens while living in South Australia. When she moved to Mildura, she noticed there was a lack of therapists offering the service locally and knew she had to change that.
This was particularly important to Lisa because Bowen Therapy is different to other hands on therapies, in that it is holistic.
“We treat the body, mind and emotions during every session,” Lisa said.
“We aren't just treating one area of the body in isolation, every body system is affected."
“For example in one Bowen session, we could treat your anxiety, digestive issues and knee pain.”
There is no denying the last few months have been particularly stressful for everyone and Lisa said Bowen Therapy is essential when we are feeling anxious, exhausted and overwhelmed.
It can also assist with autoimmune conditions, digestive and respiratory issues, emotional and mental wellbeing, fertility, pre and postnatal care, headaches and migraines, jaw and sinus issues, muscular pain and tension and recovery from accidents and injuries.
Bowen Therapy can also be beneficial for babies and children, with it being able to assist with birth trauma, colic, constipation and neck restrictions as well as assist children on the spectrum.
While you’d be forgiven for thinking it is only the patient who is appreciative of what Lisa does, she said she finds being able to assist someone in changing their life for the better incredibly rewarding.
“Sometimes it's a small change, sometimes massive,” she said.
“And sometimes the most important thing I can do in a day is just listen and be present with my client."
“The relationships I build with my clients are the most important part of it all. I am always honored to be part of their healing journey."
“It's a big thing to be honest and vulnerable with any sort of therapist and I never take that for granted."
