Conditions such as reflux, constipation, diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome may be caused by the overproduction of the body’s own cortisol and epinephrine caused by the sympathetic state ( also known as flight or fight mode).

Bowen therapy works with the parasympathetic (rest and digest) branch of the autonomic nervous system. This facilitates detoxification and cleansing via the gastrointestinal system, liver and kidneys.
