Work at home Vs Live at work“Unprecedented times” a phrase which we have all heard several times this year. The decision for office workers to be able complete their work from
home sparked mixed emotions across different personalities. The introverts rejoiced; the extroverts wondered how they would cope.
For some it meant no more daily commute and more time in their day for exercise or connection with their loved ones and for others it meant an increased workload of learning how to complete their job at home whilst schooling children as well. For most the decision to do so was swift and may have been without robust plans for workers physical health (workstation ergonomics) or workers mental or emotional health. For some it may have been hard to “clock in and clock out” at their normal start and finish times whilst working at home allowing for the work life to flow over into home life and vice versa.

If you mind is conjuring up visions of you with your laptop in bed, on the lounge, kitchen bench or anywhere other than a desk with a well-positioned office chair I am speaking directly to you so read on!
Bowen Therapy may assist with reducing and eliminating physical and emotion tension within the body. Bowen works superficially on the fascia (connective tissue) of the body. The therapist makes gentle cross-fibre moves on the body across muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerve bundles sending message to the brain via the nervous system telling the body to “Rest and Reset”
Bowen Therapy focuses on changing the nervous system from the Flight or Fright mode (sympathetic) to the Rest and Repair mode (parasympathetic). This explains the deep sense of relaxation experienced during a treatment and assist positive changes to occur both physically, emotionally, energetically, and even spiritually within the body. The gentle nature of Bowen helps to re-hydrate the fascial network which may allow for improved function of organs and body tissues as a result.
