The Antidote to "Sitting and Standing Disease". Prolonged sitting as; truck drivers, office workers or watching TV and playing digital games or standing in one place for prolonged time is very unhealthy. First and most common condition this people will earn is shallow breathing. But this chain of conditions will continue. Shallow breading is a foundation for; anxiety, stress, depression and problems just building up. That is very scary. Kids are the biggest victims of this "Sitting Disease". Most common conditions are; bent neck, spine and tight muscles all over the body. That is more than enough to get; headaches, shoulder pain, neck pain, stiff back, pain in hips, back and the list never ends.
Good Bowen Therapy have solutions to these conditions and can help you overcome them. Sitting all day is the 'modern life'.

Shoulder Pain and Frozen Shoulder
Shoulders are one of the most mobile joints in the human body, but they can easily become interrupted by body functional asymmetry. There are more than 20 muscles that affect the correct functioning of your shoulders. Just like in carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulders are very sensitive to repetitive movements and work conditions.
As soon you feel any light interruptions in your shoulder movements, act immediately to avoid unwanted pain and a long-lasting problem. Scapular, or shoulder blades, are one of the most important components of the shoulder structure. I have come across conditions where the left and right shoulder blades have a 5-centimeters difference or are not at the same level. Also in some case, arms have become rotated or inverted by 90 degrees or some of my clients were not able to lift them horizontally.
Bursitis, or inflammation of a bursa, is a common cause of shoulder, elbow, hip or knee pain. As we now shoulders have a great mobility and with that is coming a great risk for stability. A shoulder has 5 joints. That is the another good reason why is a lot of different injuries on shoulder. The most common area of problem is Sub Acromial space. Usually related to shoulder impingement of the bursa between rotator cuff tendons and Sub Acromial bone. This condition is mostly a side effect of repetitive work, overuse of shoulder muscles, fall or trauma.
Frozen Shoulder is not same as a Rotator Calf, tares and impingement. It is completely different. Rotator calf tars are common, impingement is common but forzenshoulder are not common. It is big deal condition. Pain is usually intense. Anti-inflammatory and pain medication or steroids dose not touch it. There is a specific therapy for this condition. Usualy people got restriction of movement but that is Not Frozen Shoulder condition.

Sciatica may come from disc degenerative change in the lumbar and sacral area or a disc bulge pressing against the nerve root. This pain running down the back, thigh, leg and foot is caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve at its root in the spine, the lower back, or sacral area.
It is common for sciatica to result from some overly tight muscle/s that are putting pressure on the nerve. Most of the times body functional assimetry is the cause of tight muscle over the nerv. There is a good news. Good Bowen's technique reach the simple and positive solution.
Neck disorders create a lot of unhealthy and unwanted conditions that are the result of body functional asymmetry. Neck disorder can cause; pain down the body, headache, breading difficulties, dizziness, popping or grinding sound and more. It can also cause imperfections right down to your feet, such as hip and knee pain!
Neck disorder is a great deal condition. Do not delay!
Please, geive attention to young ones. Ask them question; "how is your neck". Please check on his/hers shoulders are they in level. If one shoulder is heigher/lover that is presentation of nect tension or bend neck.!
The neck is the most mobile part of the spine, and has a great range of movement (ROM). Affected by; poor posture, work conditions, body functional asymmetry or muscular imbalance. Also pro long games on computer or other devices are to blaim for neck deformations.
Trauma, arthritis, and accidents are common results of pain, disorders and loss of ROM.
Good Bowen technique is safe. No spine manipulation required!
Migraines, headaches, balance, dizziness, hay fever, watery eyes, sinusitis and breathing are all related conditions! Different people respond differently to different triggers.
Common triggers include neck, head and jaw muscle tension, back pain, emotional stress, lack of sleep, and certain foods and beverages.
Back pain is mostly caused by body asymmetry. It is very important to find the primary reason behind your back pain. The primary problem can be anywhere from the ankles right up to your head.
Most back pains or conditions have a simple physical cause, such as inflamed or strained muscles, restricted joints, or pressure on the nerves. It can keep recurring and may not be helped by the conventional treatment of painkillers. Again, it is very important to locate the primary body part creating the condition.
I use a simple assessment test to find which muscle or area is associated with the body asymmetry. Nevertheless, always see a doctor before undertaking any alternative treatment for any pain or condition.
Tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, carpal tunnel and shoulder pain usually present themselves as a side effect of inflammation and muscle overuse from strenuous work positions or consistent elbow medial rotation.
Good Bowen Therapy has the holistic solution to your elbow related pain.
Hip and Knee
Hip and knee function can also be affected by distant areas, such as the pelvis, thigh, calf muscles, neck, and lower limb biomechanics involving and affecting the foot and ankle. This is body asymmetry. Pain in the hip is also commonly caused by a back or knee ailment because of the common nerve supply to these areas. Most of the time, the cause is distant from the actual area of pain.
TMJ or Jaw Pain
A TMJ (temporomandibular joint and muscle disorder) contributes to many health complaints, including functional asymmetry, and is a common reason for many other disorders. It most commonly induces jaw pain, headaches, a clicking jaw, bruxism, neck pain, sinusitis, migraines, hay fever, and tinnitus (affects people of any age).
If your jaw clicks, locks open or closed, grates or is in constant pain, you almost certainly have a TMJ disorder. TMJ disorders are also the cause of many problems further down the body.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome can be a result of repetitively making the same consistent patterns and movements with your arms. This includes hands, wrists, elbows, and the entire shoulder structure, (shoulder blade/scapular) including the neck. For that reason, the carpal area is just one spot of possible trouble.
At Good Bowen Therapy, we take great pleasure in treating and resolving carpal tunnel. It is a very interesting syndrome.
The tissue inside the wrist called the carpal tunnel can sometimes swell and pinch or put pressure on the nerves, which causes the painful condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. As described above, the problem and solution is often further from the carpal or wrist area. More reading about steroids available at www.everydayhealth.com/drugs/cortisone.
Bunions are formed by an improper or interrupted walking gait, and can often be the reason why your set of muscles from the hip down to the knee and from the knee to the ankle are in an unbalanced condition. Some muscles are so tight that they turn the leg out and encourage an incorrect walking gait. The product of this process is a bunion. This is just another example of body asymmetry, and bunions are just one problem out of the many mentioned above.
To conclude, bunions are not a product of your shoes. People had bunions even before the first pair of shoes or insoles were made. Good Bowen Therapy offers a holistic way to correct your legs and walking gait.
If your legs are not brought back to symmetry, an operation is only a temporary solution and the bunions will come back!
People with fallen arches may roll over to the inner side when they are walking or standing, sometimes causing the feet to point outwards. This is known as over-pronation.
There are many factors that may cause flat feet. With kids or young people, it is always possible to do some level of corrections. But, the corrections must start from the top of the body, and shouldn't focus solely on the feet. We cannot ignore the body asymmetry that flat feet can create, which then causes back and neck pain. Just like bunions, body asymmetry that hasn't been corrected in childhood is the most responsible.
