Could Bowen have improved Italy's 2012 chances?

Euro 2012 came to a dramatic end last night, as Spain were crowned the champions and Italy went home empty-handed.

After three substitutions, Italy were left to tackle La Roja with just 10 men.

Italian right back Giorgio Chiellini limped off with a left hamstring injury, the same problem that kept him out of the quarterfinal victory over England.

Thiago Motta fell to the pitch grasping his right hamstring, spelling the end for Italy's comeback chances.

Motta, who had some physical problems in training last week, had to be carried off on a stretcher, leaving Italy with 10 men as Motta had replaced Riccardo Montolivo just 4 minutes earlier.

It appears some of Italy’s casualties were experiencing some ongoing sports-related injuries that may have been preventable with Bowen.

The Bowen Technique works to heal niggling problems, pains or 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.

One client said: “I received Bowen for a sports related prolonged groin strain.

“The treatment was beneficial and greatly enhanced my quick return to sport.

“Since treatment I had had no further problems.”
