BOWEN therapy can ease the strain of pregnancy pains.

Pregnancy can really take a toll on a lady's body and well-being; from morning sickness and tiredness to physical pain such as backache and sciatica.

Gowri Motha, obstetrician and author of 'The Gentle Birth Method' believes Bowen Therapy can help many pregnant women.

Motha prescribes Bowen for cases of back pain, nausea, pubic and pelvic pain, mastitis, jaw problems and for mothers who are anxious and tense. Bowen can help with pelvic tilt, which often causes problems with the positioning of the foetus, and Bowen procedures can encourage the baby's head to engage.

During a Bowen treatment, no hardtissue manipulation or force is used. Between each set of moves, the body rests for a few minutes to allow it to absorb the information it has received and initiate the healing process.

Bowen is generally pleasant to receive, each session lasting 30-60 minutes. Many clients become so relaxed they fall asleep during the treatment.

As with many other alternative therapies the success of a treatment mainly depends on visiting a legitimate, well trained practitioner. It is recommended that the practitioner is a member of the Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA), the largest UK professional association for qualified Bowen Therapists. For further information on Bowen Therapy contact registered BTPA members in the East Cleveland area visit or phone Judith Watson on 01287 660745 or Norman Ogden on 01287 660745.
