Bowen Therapy & Cranial Sacral Therapy
Bowen Therapy is a pain management practice that assists with acute pain and loss of mobility and places a strong emphasis on healing. The Bowen technique uses gentle hand movements on specified points to massage the muscles, nerves, tendons and fascia to aid in the body’s self healing process. Bowen is most commonly used for therapy on conditions relating to the musculoskeletal system.
Dr. Townsend,ND utilizes the Bowen technique to assist her patients with:
- Knee pain
- Frozen shoulder
- Back pain
- TMJ (Temporal Mandibular Joint)
- Sports injuries
Cranial Sacral Therapy is a manual therapy in which the practitioner uses very light touch to detect blockages in the flow of the cerebral spinal fluid running through the cranial sacral system. There should be a balanced flow of the cerebral spinal fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The practitioner is able to correct blockages or restrictions by assessing the rhythm of the CSF and then using very gentle movements to rebalance the flow of these fluids.
Cranial sacral Therapy is beneficial in the treatment of stress and anxiety, TMJ, chronic neck and shoulder pain, headaches and migraines, infant colic, central nervous system disorders, back pain, and infertility
