Have you ever wondered how chronic illness, pain and dysfunction can occur without ever having experienced a serious illness or physical injury? Or how experiencing a traumatic injury can sabotage your mindset, performance and health long after you have physically healed?
The mind truly drives the body and this is widely understood and now proven by medical science to be true. So it is no wonder that for many of us, the problems we experience and the understandings we hold regarding our problems are not the actual problem. It got me thinking just how impacted we are by our belief systems and perceptions of our health, pain and dysfunction and how, for some people, no matter what the treatment or medication prescribed, no changes happen for that individual.
It is a sad statistic that many of us in our lives will experience some sort of mental health illness. The frequency of this is becoming more common and the age groups much younger. Invariably this can lead to health problems in later life, manifest in undesirable behaviour patterns or chronic health or pain related illnesses. I believe the key to breaking this cyclical pattern of health events is to challenge and change the cause at the earliest opportunity. Transferring reliance on pharmaceutical and surgical interventions from an over burdened, over stretched NHS and movement towards forward thinking, well trained and qualified therapists, is the way forward in creating healthcare change that can make a significant difference to the quality of peoples lives.
This is the primary reason Body Mind Bowen was established and continues to serve the clients it does with constantly evolving new learning and contemporary therapy that works and lasts.
