There have been no reported cases of Bowen affecting the body in any kind of “negative” way, when Bowen is performed in accordance with Bowen Healing System standards that are taught.

Occasionally, although temporary, residual soreness from toxin releases in the body can occur as structural alignment and system and overall body rebalancing begins. In cases that have had a long duration or the weakening of an area in the body, the changes that are instilled in the body from Bowen may show temporary signs of discomfort from the of a “rusty” or under-used area from using a muscle or set of muscles that currently lacks strength and stamina.

Occasionally, a person who has received treatment may experience “flu type” symptoms as the body is detoxifying itself.  Remember, the body is doing what IT knows it needs to do to heal itself.
