Baby Bowen is Bowen Technique for babies. Congratulations on the arrival of your new baby, now is the time you should be enjoying your baby and settling into a routine for baby, you and your family. However sometimes things get in the way of putting routines into practice. This can be a very challenging time for all the family. You may be feeling exhausted and overwhelmed, getting very little sleep and hoping things will get much better soon. If you are new to motherhood you could be thinking you’re doing something not quite right, baby is still crying, and sleep never seems to last very long, for either of you.
There could be many reasons that all is not well in this area, babies can suffer from birth trauma, they often experience problems with their bowels and digestive system. They may be constipated, and suffering from wind and which is one of the main causes of colic in babies. A colicky baby is not a happy baby and can cause the parents a huge amount of distress.
If your baby is suffering from wind, constipation, indigestion, acid reflux or difficulty sleeping Baby Bowen Therapy may help.
Parents who have never experience Bowen Technique ask “what’s Baby Bowen?” Baby Bowen is a series of exceedingly gentle yet highly effective moves that are made on your baby’s back and front. The treatment is effective at rebalancing the nervous system in babies and can make a huge difference to babies suffering from birth trauma, tense muscles as well as immature digestive systems.
The aim is for the result to be a calm, happy baby that sleeps better In most treatments, the technique can be performed through light clothing; However, in some cases it is easier to work directly on skin. The Bowen moves are always made on specific parts of the body, which triggers the body’s natural responses to heal itself. It is non-invasive, we do not work on bone only on soft tissue, and it is so gentle that it is hard to believe anything is happening. It is not massage, repetitive or manipulation.
A new born baby can have Bowen Technique shortly after birth within a day or so, as it is so gentle, the child is hardly aware they are being treated.
Common conditions which are often presented for Baby Bowen Technique sessions include:
• Infant colic • Constipation • Chest infections • Reflux • Restlessness • Premature babies • Blue sclera.
Bowen Technique can bring many benefits and play an important role to health care of women from conception to during and after pregnancy. Pregnancy in many cases is the first time many women have experienced Bowen Technique.
