Soccer Aid injuries could be relieved with Bowen Therapy

Yesterday saw Soccer Aid 2012, the annual fundraising event where celebrities round up to play a charity football match.

English celebs including Robbie Williams, Mark Owen, Aston Merrygold, Olly Murs and Marvin Humes went up against ROW (Rest of the World) which included Mike Myers, Gerard Butler, Edward Norton, Woody Harrelson and Michael Sheen.

The game, which raises money for UNICEF, took place in Manchester and although England won 3-1 there were some injuries.

The worst of which was suffered by Gordan Ramsay, who was tackled to the ground by Teddy Sheringham.

The celebrity chef was given oxygen on the pitch and carried off on a stretcher. He is said to have suffered a back injury and is still in pain.

Anchorman star Will Ferrell was also left hobbling off the pitch after hurting his leg late in the second half.

Olly Murs took a knock and had to be taken off.

The Bowen Technique works to heal sporting injuries in an extremely gentle but effective way.

Bowen is a natural, drug-free, non-invasive, complementary therapy that 'asks' the body to recognise the ailment and make the changes it requires as opposed to ‘forcing’ the body change.

During the 30-60 minute treatment, 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 needed or used.

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.

If you have a sports injury and are interested in how Bowen Therapy can help, visit the website to find a Bowen therapist near you or call 0844 561 7173.
