Bowen technique for sporting injuries

We all love our sport and, should we have to be sidelined through injury, most of us are very eager to seek help to get back to it as soon as possible.



Bowen therapy – as a gentle, natural, and an holistic therapy, i.e., it treats the body as a whole – is an ideal therapy for Sports Injuries, to aid the sportsperson to recover from injury as it encourages the body’s own healing system to resolve dysfunction and restore musculoskeletal balance.It is a well-known fact that the body “wants to be well” so that an injured body that has encountered trauma would respond well to the gentle therapy that is Bowen.
Because Bowen therapy helps to balance the whole body, it has the ability to relieve pain, accelerate recovery, enhance performance and prevent future sporting injuries. It achieves this by bringing the body into alignment, alleviating stresses on muscles, tendons, ligaments etc thereby allowing the body to perform at its optimum level.
Injuries whether acute or chronic, can be treated through Bowen therapy. This gentle modality not only treats the presenting injury but also helps to prevent further injury.
The human body has an innate ability to heal itself and the Bowen therapist, in making calculated, specific moves, facilitates this. Clients of Happy Valley Bowen Therapy often report increased mobility, a boost in energy and an improved feeling of wellness. Often an injury will result in decreased blood supply to the site of the injury which hinders the healing process.
Bowen therapy, through cross-fibre moves, can stimulate increased blood supply to the site of the injury, thereby speeding up the injury process. Consequently, the body is able to make its own adjustments thereby achieving long-lasting results. 

Sports injuries that can be helped by Bowen therapy include:

  • Tennis elbow,
  • Golfer’s elbow,
  • Knee problems,
  • Ankle Problems,
  • Foot issues,
  • Frozen Shoulder,
  • Plantar fasciitis, to name a few.

Post-surgery, Bowen therapy aids in a quicker recovery due to increased blood supply to areas of injury.  After a Bowen therapy treatment, muscles are less restricted, nerves and tendons are released – both of which enhance healing. Sports injuries treated with Bowen therapy can see the athlete/sportsman back on the field sooner than other more conventional treatments.
