Walking correctly and regularly helps to improve shape and fitness as recommended recently by Joanna Hall http://www.joannahall.com/ in the Daily Telegraph newspaper. This reflects the principles of the Bowen Technique http://www.bowen-technique.co.uk/ where clients are asked to walk more if possible after a Bowen Technique session to integrate all body systems.
I felt excited at this article because for me it is all about improving our natural abilities effectively – our feet, legs, shoulders and head to ensure optimum mobility in those areas. When I see a client for a consultation, I like to take into account their posture and if able, their gait. After a few sessions they usually feel straighter and more toned.
The Bowen Technique helps to align muscles and connective tissue and combined with exercises including walking, this helps to set up the body’s return to wellbeing and balance.
