How Many Sessions?
Treatment wise.......everyone is different.
We usually suggest booking in for 3-4 treatments a week to 10 days apart. For those that have chronic conditions it may take a bit longer, but that is always addressed on a case by case basis.
It may that you receive one treatment and feel it has helped, others may take 2, some 3.....we will discuss this during your session. On a personal note , one of the therapists had three treatments before the pain from her ankles disappeared completely and four treatments before the pain and mobility felt normal again. She now gets maintenance "top ups" every 4 months or so . Others get treatment and then never need it again!!
There is no ideal time for a Bowen Therapy session, but if you can get a treatment immediately after an injury, it can provide a huge benefit due to its natural effect to reduce inflammation and pain. It can also help your body overcome the trauma before it begins to compensate for it (which often creates more problems in the long run than the initial trauma itself). It also promotes blood flow so is also beneficial after operations, sprains and tears.
From a sports performance/management perspective, Bowen is great as a maintenance treatment as it increases hamstring flexibility, and helps open up the diaphragm
