Bowen Therapy – a Surprisingly Simple and Amazingly Efficient Therapy

We are naturally endowed with great potential for self-healing and power of regeneration, but we no longer know how to access these. We have lost the profound connection to our body.

Bowen Therapy from Joy Temple Tantra Centre Edinburgh comes to help us in this direction. By means of very soft yet very precise movements on key points on our body, this therapy regenerates balance and harmony on both the physical and psychic level alike.

The human body has its own intelligence down to its very last cell, and this therapy is able to call upon this intelligence.

The movements the therapist makes, during the Bowen sessions from Joy Temple Tantra Centre from Edinburgh are so delicate and relaxing, that you wouldn’t think they are triggering such complex and profound self healing mechanisms. And yet, this is what it does.

What makes this therapy work?

Bowen movements act mainly upon the vegetative nervous system.
From the very fist movements of your therapist, the focus is switched from the sympathetic dominant to the parasympathetic one. Thus a profound state of relaxation is generated and the guest would perceive this from the very first session. This then creates the needed environment where the inner doctor of our body can do its work.

Most movements are done either on the insertion of the muscles or upon the muscles themselves, where Golgi cell receptors are, thus informing the nervous system about the state of tensions, elongation or contraction of the muscular tissue.

Other movements are done around the articulations and ligaments, which are powerfully charged with proprioceptors. Through these, the message reaches to the nervous system, inviting it back to a normal functioning.

Many of the Bowen movements are done on the superficial level of the fascia and affect the relationship between the fascia and the nerves, the muscles or the tendons being mobilized.

It is recommended to have 7 days between any two Bowen sessions, precisely because the mechanisms triggered by this therapy are very subtle, and the body continues working on them for a few days after the session itself.
The movements are done either directly on the skin, or through light clothing, while the guest is in a state of complete relaxation.

Is this therapy for me?

And to clarify why we consider this therapy from Joy Temple Tantra Centre Edinburg a highly efficient one, you should know that it is addressed to everyone, from very young children to very old people, and it brings solutions to a large range of dysfunctions.
Here are but a few of them:

5 Good Reasons to Have a Yoni Massage

Yoni massage (or, as some call it, “vulva massage”) is a part of the Tantric Massage for Women. It is getting more and more popularity among women lately and for good reasons.

Shortly, a yoni massage is a special treatment where all the areas of your vagina are stimulated and activated like in reflex therapy. This will have an echo in your entire being.

Loving Your Yoni

“Yoni” is the Sanskrit term for “sacred place” or “source” and literally means “vulva” or “vagina”. It is the most receptive area of your feminine body, it can hold much tension, and yes, it needs special attention.

As women we need to love ourselves. You know that already. But have you ever thought about loving your yoni? How does thinking about loving your yoni feels to you? Do you feel excited, curious or maybe resistant to it?

A lot of emotions could be trapped there and “she” responds very well when treated with consideration and love.

In order to benefit from all this effects, several sessions are required. Our recommendation is at least 7 sessions once a week.

5 Reasons to have a Yoni Massage

1. Profound connection with your body

All your body parts are reflected in your vagina. Yoni mapping, or vaginal mapping means that all parts inside your yoni are being gently pressed and awakened. Using the principle of reflex zones it will reflect on every organ and chakra. As a result, you will feel a release of tension in your muscles, not only within the pelvic area but in your whole body.

2. You will feel better about yourself

When you take care of yourself on a deeper level, you feel worthy of your love and other people’s love. You will be more self confident and feminine, your radiance will increase.

3. It boosts your sensuality

As your yoni gets more sensitive, your sensuality will experience a boost. And so will your ability to feel more pleasure. (Your lover will appreciate it . If he thinks that it is all because of him… well… let him think that )

4. Yoni Massage releases tensions

Your yoni can hold a lot of tension. It is the most receptive part of your body, remember? You can feel this tension as painful spots or even numbness inside your vagina. As this spots are carefully touched and massaged, tension starts to dissipate and you can experience pleasure instead of pain.

5. It increases your Yoni’s Sensitivity

Well, this goes without saying. Once stresses and possible painful spots are released, your sensitivity will be greatly heightened.

Here you are. And we only touched the tip of the iceberg.
