Information for Bowen Therapists

Bowtech® Bowen Therapy and Concussion

Are you a Bowtech® Bowen Therapist ready to know more about how Bowen may help your clients with a concussion?

Watch the video below and hear from Bowen Therapists currently using the Bowen Concussion Protocol and their description of what is happening for their clients.

Every concussion is different and recovery times vary.  However, the potential benefits of incorporating Bowen Therapy into your concussion management program include:

Reduced Recovery Time:

    • Bowen Therapy aims to assist recovery by increasing blood flow, reducing inflammation, and supporting the body’s healing response.
    • Bowen may assist in effective concussion recovery, facilitating a successful and timely return to school, work and the field.

Symptom Relief:

    • Concussion often results in symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, cognitive difficulties and sleep disturbances. Bowen Therapy has been reported to provide relief from these symptoms, helping people regain their cognitive abilities and overall functionality (read more via this link to the Craig Mattimoe study)

Comprehensive Approach:

    • By addressing both the physical and neurological aspects of concussion, Bowen Therapy provides a comprehensive and holistic approach to concussion management.

Non-Invasive and Safe: 

    • Bowen Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive technique that poses no risk of adverse effects.
    • Bowen therapy complements existing medical treatments, making it a safe and valuable addition to existing concussion management strategies. We recommend refraining from other bodywork while receiving Bowen to maximise its full effect.

The Study:

    • A Study testing the hypothesis that Bowen therapy has a specific set of procedures (Bowen Concussion Protocol) that can safely treat and reduce the symptoms of concussion.
    • The Bowtech® Bowen Concussion Protocol Study 2024 is designed to:

       

      • Collect data to indicate that BCP may reduce recovery times for acute concussion compared with statistics supplied by Sway.
      • Collect data to indicate that BCP may assist clients with PCS
      • Collate and present data to Concussion Legacy Foundation (and other organisations in Aus and NZ) in the hope that Bowtech® Bowen Therapy may be recognised as a treatment for concussion and linked to the CLF website Help Page and other similar services.
