It’s World No Tobacco Day, so why not test your willpower and try kicking that bad habit for 24 hours?
But, of course, we all know that’s easier said than done.
The process of quitting smoking can trigger a lot of unwanted stress and anxiousness, which makes kicking the bad habit difficult.
Although there are patches, sprays, inhalators and even chewing gums to help you quit, some people prefer to do it naturally as these aids can have side effects.
The Bowen Technique is a natural, drug-free, non-invasive, complementary therapy that can help combat stress.
Rather than ‘making’ the body change, Bowen ‘asks’ the body to recognise the ailment and make the changes it requires.
During the 30-60 minute treatment, the Bowen practitioner makes small, rolling movements over muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissue at precise points on the body, using only the amount of pressure appropriate for that individual.
No hard-tissue manipulation or force is needed or used.
Between each set of moves, the body is allowed to rest for a few minutes, to allow it to absorb the information it has received and initiate the healing process.
Bowen is known for its soothing qualities for physical complaints; however it is an extremely relaxing experience that can have many emotional benefits too.
One client said: “It is exactly what I needed at a time when stress in my life has been at a peak and for quite some time now. The results I am experiencing are beyond my expectations…”
