The Kill Bill star, who already has two children, announced earlier this year that she is expecting a daughter at 41.
Often, when women have a baby after the age of 35, the stress on both the spine and the pelvis which occurs during pregnancy can worsen and intensifies as the birth approaches.
Knock-on effects of pain and discomfort are often also felt in the muscles and ligaments which support the spine and the pelvis.
Older mums like Uma Thurman, who is a fan of alternative remedies like Gemstone Therapy, could benefit from a course of Bowen treatment.
Bowen is a drug-free, non-invasive complementary therapy. With primarily fingers and thumbs, the Bowen practitioner makes small, rolling movements over muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissue at precise points on the body, using only the amount of pressure appropriate for that individual.
No hard-tissue manipulation or force is used and between each set of moves, the body is allowed to rest for a few minutes, to allow it to absorb the information it has received and initiate the healing process.
Bowen prides itself on being able to trigger the body’s own healing systems. Rather than 'making' the body change, Bowen 'asks' the body to recognise and make the changes it requires.
The advantage of the Bowen Technique over most other alternative therapies is that pregnant women can be treated in the sitting position or lying on their side.
Many of the problems associated with pregnancy can be treated with the treatment both before and after childbirth. These include severe backache, headaches, nausea, tiredness and decreased energy levels, sciatica, leg ache and heartburn.
The long-term hormonal and musculoskeletal changes can last many months after childbirth with often painful symptoms. Both the relaxing and therapeutic effects of the Bowen Technique are particularly useful during this period and can be performed within hours of birth.
