Taking place in the second week of June, International Men’s Health Week (IMHW) focuses on promoting men’s health and wellbeing across Europe.
Falling on the 10th – 16th June this year, the objective is to encourage national and international organisations to implement policies and agents that can improve the prosperity of males within different areas of activity.
Research (commissioned by Mind) has found that work is the most stressful factor in people’s lives. We don’t exactly need statistics to understand that working within an institution can stimulate pressure – especially amongst men.
The consequences of stress can lead to the body’s mental, emotional and physical response to change from what it’s used to. Although it is considered a normal part of life, many men still struggle to deal with the effects and it is only then that stress becomes a negative possession – when there is no form of relief!
Effectively, men coping with stress can benefit professionally and personally from undergoing Bowen treatment.
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.
With most men expressing that their biggest anxiety is “the pressure to be successful” in the workplace, Bowen can be of assistance in many cases of emotional stress, where relaxation is a prime factor in easing pain and anxiety.
The treatment is collectively known for its soothing qualities for physical complaints and is an extremely relaxing experience that can have many emotive benefits too. We believe that The Bowen Technique is ideal for the promotion of men’s health and wellbeing and is most definitely an agent that can improve the prosperity of health within males.
