what we do
The practitioner inserts needles into the persons specific acupuncture points along acupuncture meridians (energetic channels in the body) to induce stimulation of Qi -energy.
Acupuncture points are stimulated by rotating needles until the patient feels a tight twisting sensation. Individual points have specific therapeutic effects on the body’s organs, channels and vital energy.
General sessions may last fifteen to thirty minutes. Being relaxed, calm, quiet and positive helps patients maximize the benefits of acupuncture treatments.
The effects of homeopathic remedies are studied through ‘provings’ on healthy individuals.
Homeopathy is based on two unconventional theories:
“Like cures like”—the notion that a disease can be cured by a substance that produces similar symptoms in healthy people “Law of minimum dose”— the notion that the lower the dose of the medication, the greater its effectiveness.
Many homeopathic products are so diluted that no molecules of the original substance remain.
Homeopathic products come from plants, minerals or animals. Homeopathic treatments are “individualized” or tailored to each person— it’s common for different people with the same condition to receive different treatments.
Much like a computer operator, the Bowen therapist must hit the “keys” in the right order to access the bodies computer. Accessing the right program restores optimum homeostasis in the body. Because Bowen Therapy works on the vibrational level (i.e. nerves etc.) other therapies may interfere with the changes set up by the Bowen treatment.
This is why you may be asked to avoid other treatments for the next 5-10 days. You may also notice changes taking place in your body over the next week. These instructions, if followed, will increase the effectiveness of the Bowen treatment.
Bowen Therapy is helpful in treatment of acute and chronic pain through proper alignment of bodily structures.
