Bowen can help the mind as well as body

August 31, 2019by Helen Perkins

MOST people think of Bowen Therapy as an effective treatment for physical aches and pains, especially back, neck and shoulder problems.

Less well known, perhaps, are the beneficial effects of Bowen if someone is feeling stressed, worried or under pressure.

While stress can be a catalyst to keep us energised and ‘on our toes’ ready to deal with anything, too much stress can affect the body in a negative way resulting in physical and emotional problems that can become chronic over time.

Bowen Therapy can help by:

  • Calming the nervous system, relaxing body and mind
  • Kick-starting the body’s natural healing process
  • Encouraging the brain to ‘let go’ of the tension and stress that may have built up over a long period
  • Improving digestive health and bowel function which can often be a symptom of anxiety and pent-up stres
  • Helping alleviate headache and insomnia for which stress is a known trigger

Helen is an experienced and highly respected therapist and instructor with a successful practice in Cambridgeshire and would be happy to answer any questions. Alternatively, to find your nearest Bowen therapist please go to or
