  Bowen For Dogs

Canine Bowen Therapy involves a series of gentle, non-invasive connective tissue manipulations applied to key points on the animal’s body.  Like the Bowen Technique for people, it is an effective hands-on technique that addresses the whole Central Nervous System, promoting healing, pain relief and energy rebalancing.

Most of the Bowen body work is concentrated on connective tissue known as fascia. Unlike other structures, which have beginning and end points, fascia is a continuous membrane-like plastic wrap that covers every organ, blood vessel, nerve, muscle and bone throughout the whole body.  In prime condition, fascia is loose, moist, mobile and elastic, facilitating movement between the parts of the body and the flow of bodily fluids throughout the body.

Through a series of gentle cross-fibre moves, Bowen treatment releases “gluing” in the fascia, allowing the tissue to become more moveable.  As the fascia improves through better hydration, the body is able to provide a better supply of nutrients to the cells and remove waste.   There will then be less restriction on muscles, tendons and ligaments and the vascular, lymphatic and nervous systems will be able to function more effectively.

Bowen therapy can benefit dogs of all sizes and ages and can help them live a more active and happy life.   It is of particular benefit during periods of illness, as an aid to recovery from injury or surgery or, like many of us, when suffering the effects of old age and arthritis begins to slow them down.   My own collie cross vouched for the efficacy of the treatment and continued to follow me everywhere, even when I tried to sneak off for a quiet hack with my horse, right up to the end of her 18-year life of faithful companionship!
