How does Bowen Therapy Treat Incontinence?
Bowen works with the fascia and nervous system and can help to strengthen the signal between the bladder and the rest of the nervous system including the brain. Muscles are controlled by the nerves, and by simply stimulating the nerves to the bladder, including those that control the muscles responsible for the passing of urine, clients find it helps them remain dry. Also, because the nerves around the bladder are more stimulated, clients report a stronger sensation of 'needing to go' which helps in the case of the bladder emptying at random times. Bowen stimulates the 'inner alarm' by creating a stronger sensation of needing to go to the toilet, which is highly effective in most cases.
Typically 3 treatments are required, one per week over a 3 week period, and although everyone is different, usually clients report improvement after the first treatment.
