What is it?
Sciatica literally means inflammation of the sciatic nerve, presenting as pain radiating down the leg, often felt around the lower back and glut area too. Ow!
How does Bowen help?
Bowen works to relax the nervous system as well as tense muscles, tendons, and ligaments, thereby allowing the pinched sciatic nerve to be released.
Not only is Bowen Therapy superb in addressing sciatica, but is it also very effective for other issues originating in the lumbar/pelvic region including lower back pain, hip pain, hip flexor issues, and sacroiliac pain.
Is your sciatica pain preventing you from your exercise, sport, or daily life? Ask yourself what makes it better or worse and use your body’s natural intelligence to support the healing here. It’s also fine if you don’t know as I can support you.
Usually, sciatica is resolved in a few sessions so it isn’t something you need to put up with and there is often a quick easy solution.
As we treat the whole person in Bowen, I won’t just look at the localised sciatica area, but checking and address alignment across the whole body, as it is all connected.
A brilliant side effect of this is an improvement in posture, more relaxation, more awareness of your body and the ability to get with your life pain-free hooray!
