Fibromyalgia – common symptoms include multiple points of pain in the muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and other soft tissues, sleep disturbance, fatigue and bladder/bowel problems.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) – characterised by debilitating fatigue, neurological problems and often has many symptoms similar to those experienced by people with Fibromyalgia.
CFS and Fibromyalgia are known as autonomic nervous system (ANS) conditions, which cause disruptions to the sympathetic (Fight and Flight) and parasympathetic (Rest and Repair) parts of the ANS, affecting breathing, blood pressure, bladder and bowel function.
Bowen Therapy helps address the symptoms of Fibromyalgia and CFS, as it improves lymphatic drainage, which helps remove the toxins which have built-up in the body and enhances sleep patterns allowing the body more time for rest and repair.
Bowen also allows the body to move from a state of Fight and Flight (sympathetic nervous system) to a state of Rest and Repair (parasympathetic nervous system), allowing the body to regain balance; reducing anxiety and improving digestion. Many Fibromyalgia or CFS clients experience anxiety and digestive issues, therefore regular Bowen Therapy treatments can form part of ongoing maintenance and support in treatment.
