The birth is one of the most traumatic processes a child will go through. The baby is able to have Bowen therapy within a day or so after birth. It is a very gentle treatment and babies respond very well to Bowen.
Bowen Therapy is extremely effective for:
- Infant colic
- Blue babies
- Misalignments in the spine due to labour
- Chest infections
- Premature babies
The wonderful thing about Bowen Therapy is that it can treat as young as a few days old to the elderly. It has no limitations on age. Bowen Therapy can help maintain health and relaxation for both mother and baby.
Many expectant mothers have discovered Bowen Therapy during pregnancy and have continued it after the birth of their child; both mother and baby become Bowen clients.

Bowen For Mums and Mums To Be
Bowen Therapy has a very important role to play in the health care of women both during and after pregnancy. The Bowen Technique (Bowen Therapy) is integral for Mothers-To-Be as it is one of the only therapies that can be performed in its entirety with the patient sitting down or lying on their side.
Bowen Therapy can treat all COMMON PREGNANCY pains!
As the centre of gravity changes during pregnancy, so do the stresses on the spine. Many problems suffered during pregnancy may be directly related to the health of the spine. Common pregnancy pains are easily and gently relieved almost immediately with Bowen Therapy and is very relaxing for the expectant mother.
Common pregnancy pains the mother may experience are:
- Hip Pain & SPD
- Breast Tenderness
- Aching legs
- Nausea / Dizziness
- Decreased energy levels
The spine and pelvis of an expectant mother are particularly vulnerable because of the stress of carrying an unborn baby. Hormonal changes make the pelvis suppler during the latter part of pregnancy. This is when the terrible back aches seem to not only intensify, but also appear more frequently as the baby gets heavier. The instability of the pelvis can lead to other strains being felt in the spine and supporting muscles and ligaments.
Pregnancy can create new problems but can also exacerbate existing ones.
The process of childbirth puts tremendous stresses and strains on the musculoskeletal system. This includes the spine, pelvis, supporting muscles and ligaments. As these structures are suppler for some time after birth due to the hormonal changes, there may be an increased susceptibility to injury.
The birth itself can leave the mother in a lot of lower back and pelvic pain. There is also the added strain on the spine whilst nursing, feeding and caring for the baby.
