Fat Wallets and Back Pain - How the Bowen Technique can Help
A great picture to show just how much a posture can be affected by carrying stuff like wallets around in your back pocket.
Now gentlemen, you may not want to do Joey from Friends and carry and Manbag, and you may also become aware of those hostile looks from the female fraternity when you say 'could you just carry this for me in your bag...'
So what can you do? Well you can either spend all your money so you don’t have to carry a wallet in your back pocket or give the Bowen Technique a try:
Bowen Technique works specifically on the fascia and connective tissue of the body and with direct yet gentle moves is able to enable the body to release and correct itself bringing pain relief and balance to not just the pelvis but to the entire body that has been compensated due to misalignment. When you're pelvis is out of alignment the knock on effect throughout your body can be very significant.
Just think of the game Jenga if one block in the stack is out of alignment, other blocks have to be moved to keep the balance and stop the stack falling over - this is the same for us when our back goes 'out', although for us it is a complex adjustment of soft tissue, muscles, fascia and connective tissue that the body does to try and keep us upright and functioning.
Consequently nerves can become trapped and inflamed causing us the familiar pain and angst and muscles spasm and become greatly reduced in their ability to move. As a result our blood and lymph circulation are reduced, our movement becomes reduced, our fascia builds up, we become stiff and aching, we don’t want to move so our blood and lymph circulation are reduced, our movement becomes reduced, our fascia builds up....see where this is going – one very interesting game of Jenga.
You’ll be surprised what can happen with the Bowen Technique.
