UNDERSTANDING THE LINK BETWEEN FASCIAL PLANES-DYSFUNCTION WITHIN THIS FASCIA THAT CAUSES PAIN AND MANY OTHER HEALTH ISSUES
Did you know that often if we experience neck pain, jaw pain or upper back pain, it can be associated with the opposite end of the spine? In other words, the coccyx. It sounds highly improbable but often when a client experiences persistent issues, there is a correlation with other areas of the body.
In Bowen Therapy we approach the body as a whole and will address issues from one end of the spine to the other, or one end of the body to the other!. I also tailor a session to meet the needs of the client at the time. This means that if the client walks in with pain when they are walking, pelvic alignment will be assessed and addressed, as well as all the other areas relating to this.
Often, when only the area that is causing pain is worked on (which is often the case with other modalities or traditional approaches to address pain), it will actually set off a chain of events. In Bowen Therapy I am impacting primarily on the connective tissue or fascia. This tissue encases every single structure in the body and is one continuous web that can have disruptions to it’s function from head to toe. Therefore, it is important that an approach is taken that respects this and addresses dysfunction right through a fascial plane. Did you know for example, that you can get pain in the plantar region of your feet (bottom of the feet), which can impact on your fascia between the ball of the foot right along the calf, back of the thigh, buttocks, up through to the neck, back of the head around to the forehead? This is one continuous web of fascia that often will have dysfunction in these areas affecting other areas of this fascial plane as indicated above.
Due to the approach of Bowen Therapy, moves that are specifically placed on fascia, insertion points of tendons, ligaments and muscles, we cause a vibrational affect along the fascial plane, resulting in dysfunction being addressed in it’s entirety rather than just one area where pain, mobility issues or tension is occurring. This is the key to the success of Bowen Therapy where many other approaches have failed.
In addition to this, I also spend a great deal of time with my clients in their initial consultation, establishing a timeline of their issues and determining if there are any other underlying causes that need addressing to achieve results that no other health professional has been able to achieve.
It sounds unattainable and too good to be true doesn’t it? Especially if you have been on the conveyor belt of various treatments and medications to address a persistent problem. Why not give me a call and see if I can assist with your issue. I believe in being completely honest with people and will advise if I can’t be sure. But just taking that first step towards your health and wellbeing can relieve the stress associated with having a persistent problem that has not been addressed successfully.
My approach to my work is one of dedication and service to my clients. I offer ongoing support for clients during their period of Bowen Therapy sessions. This is second to none and I understand that clients may feel uncertain or unsure as their body processes a Bowen Therapy session. By making myself available for a client to touch base with me if need be, this gives them the piece of mind that they are supported through the entire journey. I look forward to speaking to you and discussing your wellbeing.
