The 30-year-old style-icon has a few months to go before she becomes a first-time mother and it looks as if her pregnancy symptoms are in full swing.
The by-products of pregnancy can be absolutely unbearable. As the mum-to-be’s posture changes through pregnancy, the spine and pelvis are vulnerable due to the stresses from carrying her unborn child.
Knock-on effects of pain and discomfort are often also felt in the muscles and ligaments which support the spine and the pelvis.
Pregnancy can create problems and exacerbate existing ones. Ensuring that the pelvis is correctly aligned through the pregnancy will not only help to alleviate back pain and sciatica as well as tension in the shoulders and neck, but it will also help to ensure that there is no restricted blood flow to the baby and uterus.
Bowen Therapy is one sure way to improve posture and alleviate some of the side-effects of pregnancy including digestive problems such as constipation, hemorrhoids and acid reflux etc…
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.
When receiving a Bowen treatment, it is also common for the mum-to-be to say that she can feel the baby moving about in response.
Many of the problems associated with pregnancy can be treated with the treatment both before and after childbirth.

If the girls are determined to get their sleek figures back in no time, a Bowen Treatment could help them get ready to start exercise once again.
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.
