Q:  What is lymphatic drainage and can Bowen Therapy stimulate this?

A:  The gentle movements in a Bowen session stimulate lymphatic flow and drainage. Bowen Therapy activates the body’s fluid circulation that helps remove toxins, fats and aids the re-absorption of inflammation and oedema through the lymphatic system.   The immune system is also boosted by increased lymph flow and this addresses symptoms such as bronchitis, sinusitis, tonsillitis, laryngitis, acne, and eczema, chronic fatigue, Ross River fever, Glandular fever, fibromyalgia etc.  Lymphatic drainage relieves pain by reducing fluid pressure or congestion on nerve endings and speeds up healing in the body.

Bunions or Calcification in Joints

(Take care that the water will not scald you, especially if you have impaired sensory responses e.g. Diabetes or peripheral neuropathy in which case have someone else test the water temperature or use an appropriate thermometer).

Soak for 20 minutes, and then apply Bowtech Ease (available from Bowen By Nature).

Begin prior to your Bowen Session for bunions, and continue afterwards as post treatment ‘after care’.

The Bunion Procedure comprises small classic Bowen moves over and around the big toe joint together with a little traction.
