Expertise and decription of service(s) provided and what it is helpful for
I am a practitioner, based in Bishopston, Bristol, offering both Bowen Therapy and Neurostructural Integration Technique (NST), a style of Bowen based on Tom Bowen's later work. The Bowen Technique and NST are both gentle yet powerful hands-on therapies which can help mums-to-be with a wide variety of both physical and emotional changes experienced in pregnancy. These might include anything from morning sickness, tiredness and fatigue, back pain, sciatica, neck and shoulder tension, tender breast, aching legs, swollen ankles and legs, through to carpal tunnel, constipation, haemorrhoids, mood swings and acne.
Postural changes throughout pregnancy can not only create problems, but exacerbate existing ones. Bowen Therapy / NST help ensure that the pelvis is correctly aligned which is not only very important for the birth itself, but which also helps to alleviate back pain and sciatica, as well as tension in the shoulders and neck. They also help ensure that there is no restricted blood flow to the baby and uterus and that neural pathways are unhindered to the uterine and pelvic area. Digestive problems such as constipation, haemorrhoids, acid reflux are also avoided etc.
A further benefit of the Bowen Technique & NST is that they can be received through light clothing &/or lying on one side, sitting up or even standing thus ensuring comfort at all times. The treatment is very gentle and can be performed on newborns through to the elderly. Toddlers and youngsters enjoy the treatment immensely, too, and are mostly willing to receive it.
For many women 1-4 treatments of Bowen therapy / NST is sufficient to help alleviate symptoms during pregnancy; for others a treatment every 3-4 weeks keeps them in optimum form.
