Equi-Bow Technique www.equi-bowcanada.com
Equi-Bow Technique is very gentle and non-invasive, yet it is incredibly effective. specific series of muscle and connective tissue movements are incorporated to address a wide range of problems and injuries.
Every system in the body, internal organ systems as well as the musculoskeletal structure is addressed as these gentle, powerful moves send neurological impulses to the brain, which is then given time to process the information and feed impulses back to re-align the body. Equi-Bow techniques are a unique form of neuromuscular re-patterning, working primarily by addressing the muscle tissue and the nervous system on both a structural and energetic levels. CranioSacral and Feldenkrais techniques also address the nervous system to bring about change.
Perhaps one of the single most important tools we have to facilitate healing of the whole body. Held patterns of pain and physiological dysfunctions are removed by restoring the structural integrity of the body. Respecting this feedback loop is essential to allow the body to restore its own natural balance.
Benefits are usually apparent within two to three sesssions, even when long-standing conditions are being treated. Equi-Bow results are long lasting and profound.
Equi-Bow modalities are gentle, non-invasive, hands-on, non-medical disciplines that promote self-healing in the body. The technique is designed to compliment the healing process and are not intended to replace conventional medical or veterinary healthcare.
