Now that you have had your Bowen Treatment here are a few simple things to remember…
We recommend the 3 W’s:
Drink 25mls per kg of your body weight throughout the day – every day.
(i.e. 80kg =2litres)
Our bodies are 80% water so we need to drink water to flush toxins and wastes, particularly after Bowen treatments and also for rehydration.
Keep moving daily – particularly for the first 24 – 48 hours after treatment.
After your treatment, this simple activity will help to keep your body in detox mode by activating your lymphatic’s and preventing toxins from accumulating.
Our bodies make adjustments based on its most recent experience; your Bowen treatment is just that.
Please allow your body time to do what it needs to do. It’s best to refrain from other manual therapies while you’re seeing your Bowen Practitioner.
No heavy lifting or strenuous activities for 24 hours. Just take it easy.
If you have had therapy on your Jaw Area please avoid foods that require heavy chewing for 24 hours. Try to avoid opening your jaw too wide; if you need to yawn give your jaw some support by cupping the lower jaw with your hand.
If you are taking prescribed medication from your doctor Do Not Stop these.
It is sometimes possible to experience discomfort for 24-48 hours after (stiffness or aching). This is normal; if you feel the need to take a painkiller this is okay or you can simply add 1 cup of Epsom Salts to a warm bath and REEEEELAX
