With the start of school just days away, this morning I began to think of all the ways that Bowen can help children. Young folk really like and respond well to Bowen. They will often ask for Bowen, seeming to know instinctively when it is time to come back for a session. Bowen can help with nervousness, growing pains, cramping, and injuries. Continue reading to learn about my Back-to-School special.
The Nervousness, Anxiety Child – Some children display their anxiety with digestive issues like tummy aches or constipation. Other may experience bedwetting, asthma attacks, or sleeplessness. No matter how your child displays his/her anxiety, Bowen has special procedures for each of these complaints and it will also help your child have a deep night’s sleep. In fact, one of the most common comments I hear from clients after a Bowen session is, “Wow! I had such a great sleep!” A restful sleep is worth its weight in gold in helping your child feel calmer about facing a new teacher and the school year.
Growing Pains – Felt most often in the shins, growing pains can occur during growth spurts. There is a specialized procedure in Bowenwork called Knee Reflex Procedure that is used for growing pains, as well as for shin splints. http://bowenworksinlondon.com/oh-aching-shins/
ADD/ADHD – With Bowen, the child with ADD/ADHD feels calmer, less fidgety, and better able to concentrate. In working with children, I receive positive feedback from both parents and teachers who notice the improvements.
Teens With Menstrual Pain – Did you know that monthly menstruation should be a “non event”? Menses really should be pain free! My memory, however, was much different from that as I frequently experienced abdominal cramping and often missed school. If only I knew about Bowen back then because Bowen has unique procedures for PMS and cramps. In my practice, clients often are free of menstrual cramps in as little as two months and their periods become regular too (sometimes for the first time in their lives).
Sports Injuries – If your child played sports over the summer, think about Bowen to help rebalance the body, especially if it was a contact sport. Even tumbles from the playground equipment can cause pain or compensation patterns that have long term effects on body structure. If your child is returning to sports, remember that a body that is in better alignment is less prone to injury or strain throughout the sports season. As a reminder, with Bowen we are working on muscle and connective tissue: we are not adjusting the spine.
These are just some of the ways that Bowen can help your child be healthy and happy. In September, I am offering a 2-for-1 Back-to-School special. Bring in two children at the same time for Bowen and pay for only one child. For those with only one child, I will extend this offer for mom or dad to receive Bowen at the same time as the child…two for the price of one. Call or email for full particulars and to book an appointment for your children.
Happy back to school shopping!
