The benefits of Bowen for the rider include;
- Improved position in the saddle
- Improved balance and feel
- Increased joint mobility
- Improved recovery time after injury/fall
Remember, it is likely that any correction in the horse will not hold unless the rider is in balance also.
Other common problems addressed in riders include:
- Lower back pain
- Hip/pelvic pain
- Shoulder pain
- Whiplash/neck pain
- Knee/ankle pain
The Bowen Technique has also been effective in treating many other conditions such as asthma, eczema, psoriasis, sinusitis and respiratory problems.
