bowen therapy

Therapies like acupuncture and naturopathy are well-established alternative treatments for infertility, however, Bowen therapy is fast-becoming the new go-to therapy for fertility and there is a raft of ‘Bowen Babies’ whose parents are convinced it was what made the difference.

Here at Your Fertility Hub, we’re all about the emotional side of your journey. Using alternative therapies is a great way to relax, tune into and deal with your emotions and find some healing in your body and mind.

What is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen is very safe for all ages and issues. It is a soft tissue therapy designed to release muscles and the fascia in a manner and the main aim is to reintegrate the body as a whole.  The body is balanced holistically working on a deep cellular level encouraging the body’s unique ability to heal itself.Bowen is very successful for some people as it brings about deep relaxation for the mind as well as the body.

As published in ‘The Guardian’ in the UK (August 2001) clinical trials in the UK, Australia and New Zealand using the Bowen technique on infertile couples, have seen remarkable success and Bowen specialists worldwide have reported on the fast and effective results of this technique in treating infertility.

How does the Bowen Therapy help fertility?

Bowen therapy for infertility works on a hormonal level aiming to balance the hormones, stimulate the female egg maturation and to trigger ovulation at the appropriate time as well as enhancing male sperm production. There are specific moves to help realign the pelvic area, which helps to balance the endocrine (hormonal) system and a specific protocol to enhance fertility. Once pregnant, Bowen is still useful as it helps to keep the pelvis in alignment. It can also be useful, postpartum helping the mother’s body recover from the birthing process and many people also use Bowen for babies too.

Karenna Wood, Founder of Your Fertility Hub, says “I recently tried Bowen Therapy combined with remedial massage and was astounded at the difference it made in my body. I was a little skeptical, as I didn’t know much about Bowen but the results speak for themselves. Our therapist was also able to cure my husband’s bad back which had left him crippled with pain for months. It’s very subtle and not like a traditional massage, but you literally get results very quickly. I’ve heard of women getting pregnant or producing many more eggs after just a few sessions.”

A treatment can be carried out through clothing or directly onto the skin. During the session, the recipient experiences deep relaxation. Relief is frequently attained after the first treatment, however, a long-term resolution is generally attained after the second or third treatment. A treatment usually lasts 30 to 60 minutes.
