In this link Parkinson&rsquo;s specialist Robert Rodgers explains the difference between Bowen Therapy and craniosacral therapy, and how both therapies will help.<br /> &ldquo;My personal experience with Bowen therapy involved a treatment I received from Naturopath doctor John Coleman and his associate four years ago at a workshop in Tacoma, Washington. I loved receiving the Bowen treatment from John. It clearly allows for gentle releases of stress, trauma and tension.&rdquo;<br /> <a href="http://www.blog.parkinsonsrecovery.com/difference-between-craniosacral-therapy-and-bowen-therapy ">Click</a> here to go to the Parkinson Recovery website.<br /> For more information on how John works, and to read about his story go to John&rsquo;s website. <a href="http://www.returntostillness.com.au">www.returntostillness.com.au</a> &nbsp;<br />1393844400http://www.fascialkinetics.com/news/40/Craniosacral-therapy-and-Bowen-therapy-and-Parkinson-s-Diseasehttp://www.fascialkinetics.comCraniosacral therapy and Bowen therapy - and Parkinson's Diseasehttp://www.fascialkinetics.com/news/40/Craniosacral-therapy-and-Bowen-therapy-and-Parkinson-s-Disease Another excellent article by Dr Jaap van der Wal about fascia.http://www.fascialkinetics.com/news/39/Another-excellent-article-by-Dr-Jaap-van-der-Wal-about-fascia&quot;Under the procedural and mental scalpel of the anatomist, the continuity of the connective tissue as central matrix of the body has been lost.

As you move, it allows your muscles to glide past one another. It acts like a net suspending your organs and a high-tech adhesive holding your cells in place while relaying messages between them. Connective tissue is one of the most integral components of the human machine. Indeed, one could draw a line between any two points of the body via a path of connective tissue. This network is so extensive and ubiquitous that if we were to lose every organ, muscle, bone, nerve, and blood vessel in our bodies, we would still maintain the same shape: our &lsquo;connective-tissue body.&rsquo;&rdquo;<br /> &ldquo;In contrast to the general neglect of connective tissue in the conventional medical and scientific fields, &ldquo;alternative-medicine&rdquo; researchers, and especially clinical practitioners, have for many years recognized the potential importance of connective tissue in health and disease. Indeed, a variety of alternative manual and movement-based therapies work under the collective assumption that connective-tissue pathology lies at the source of musculoskeletal pain, and that this can be ameliorated with manual treatments.&rdquo; <br /> We know therapy that addresses connective tissue problems work &ndash; clients walk away every day free of their pain, and with greater range of movement, without suffering through deep invasive body work.<br />1383217200http://www.fascialkinetics.com/news/38/Read-this-great-article-about-fascia-including-some-research-results-by-Helene-M-Langevinhttp://www.fascialkinetics.comRead this great article about fascia, including some research results, by Helene M.

The surface area of this network is endowed with millions of endomysial sacs and other membranous pockets with a total surface area that by far surpasses that of the skin or any other body tissues. Interestingly, compared with muscular tissue&rsquo;s innervation with muscle spindles, the fascial element of it is innervated by approximately 6 times as many sensory nerves than its red muscular counterpart.&rdquo; From Fascia as an Organ of Communication by Robert Schleip1380798000http://www.fascialkinetics.com/news/36/Did-you-know-that-fascia-is-our-richest-sensory-organhttp://www.fascialkinetics.com231Did you know that fascia is our richest sensory organ!http://www.fascialkinetics.com/news/36/Did-you-know-that-fascia-is-our-richest-sensory-organ A Bowen treatment is more than just 'doing some moves.'!http://www.fascialkinetics.com/news/35/A-Bowen-treatment-is-more-than-just-doing-some-movesDid you know that tightness in the anterior and posterior neck flexors, and levator scapula can be due to stomach disturbances brought on by stress? Worry and overthinking impacts on the stomach meridian which then impacts upon these muscles. Releasing the neck muscles helps, but addressing the cause is also essential.
