Amazing Pregnancy
By Dr Jaimini Raniga
Pregnancy is an amazing body and mind changing experience, and it comes with a brand new family member after just nine months. But let's face it, you have to put up with an awful lot during that time. From morning sickness and overwhelming exhaustion, to the challenge of adjusting to a completely new centre of gravity, it can all take its unique toll on you. Fortunately less pleasant aspects of pregnancy. scene that promises numerous benefits, especially during pregnancy. It's named after Tom Bowen, an Australian who developed the technique by observing the body's response to particular stimuli.

"Bowen Technique is a dynamic, soft tissue therapy that involves stimulating precise points on the body, using gentle movements on muscles, tendons and ligaments,"

there are therapies which can offer relief for some of the One such therapy is Bowen Technique, a fairly new

Bowen and Soccer

A Winning Formula by Alastair Rattray

C A S E H I S T O R Y SOCCER "I was asked to try Bowen therapy by my soccer physio as I had been having problems with my back, groin and upper leg muscles for most of the season. I'd been to a chiropractor a few times and on my last visit she had advised there was nothing really wrong with my bone structure. I continued to play but still felt restricted in my movements so I decided to give Bowen a try. "I didn't really know what to expect but I was determined to keep an open mind and give it a go. I can't explain how it worked but after a couple of treatments the problems I had been having virtually disappeared. I was able to touch my toes with the palms of my hands - something I'd not been able to do for a long while and I seemed to

be able to go the duration of a game easily where I had been struggling before. "When people ask 'does it work?' I find the best way to tell them about it is my scoring ratio since having Bowen. I'd only scored 5 goals in 27 games before Bowen treatment. From the time I started having treatment until the end of the season, I scored 10 in 12 and from my point of view, that says it all! I also didn't miss a game through injury." - Danny Adams, soccer player

Running with Bowen

The Bowen Technique & Sports: A Winning Formula by Alastair Rattray
CASEHISTORY RUNNER "I recently changed my running shoes and began to notice an uncomfortable strain down my left Achilles. On finishing each run the area would burn and be painful for some hours later. "This developed until running became impossible without pain. Direct work with massage and other hands-on approaches to the area created little relief. On seeing a Bowen practitioner a suggestion was made that the problem could be coming from the sacroiliac joint in the lower back. Three sessions working in this area gave permanent relief. I now see the Bowen practitioner only if I am preparing for a big race." -David Jacobs, 32
