Bowen and Niromathé therapies work with the principle that the body’s structures and functions are interrelated. Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, “the father of osteopathy,” put this very succinctly, "structure governs function,” and disruption of any tissue disrupts the function in the whole person. A spasm or blockage in muscles, tendons, ligaments or fascia can cause pain lasting a few days or 20 years. Bowen and Niromathé are aimed at their release.

Both Bowen and Niromathé consist of a series of gentle movements that allow the body to switch from the sympathetic fight/flight to the parasympathetic rest/repair side of the autonomic nervous system. The blockage or spasm can then be released. Once these are cleared, the body is ready to reorganize. This might include many of the body’s systems: the circulatory, digestive, immune, nervous, muscular, skeletal, integumentary, renal, reproductive, respiratory, and endocrine systems. It’s a cascade effect through the body that allows it to recharge and rebalance.

Bowen and Niromathé therapies use very gentle hands-on manipulation designed to treat a broad range of conditions. They are safe and appropriate for everyone from newborns to the elderly and the chronically ill. These therapies can work very quickly to produce lasting relief from pain and discomfort.
