Bowen Technique

The Bowen Technique was developed by Tom Bowen in Geelong, Australia, and is now taught worldwide.

Bowen Technique is a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy that is revolutionising health care world wide. Over the last 45 years, it has successfully helped thousands of people suffering from a wide variety of conditions. It is extremely gentle and very relaxing and empowers the body's own healing resources achieving balance and harmony, resulting in fast and lasting relief from pain and discomfort.

The healing is not considered massage but rather a non invasive muscle release technique consisting of a series of gentle cross fibre moves that have long term benefits so long as the injury or pain is not re-aggravated.

The precise location of the Bowen moves correlate markedly with the latest research into the meridian energy system, acu-points and myofascial trigger point therapy.

This gentle and effective modality brings substantial relief frequently after the first session, and generally clients only need two or three treatments, usually one week apart. Treatments can be done through clothing when preferred, as no oils are used. Treatment sessions can last from 10 to 50 minutes.

Bowen facilitates the balancing of a broad range of conditions. It can address any problem (with medical supervision where appropriate) as the treatment is holistic. Bowen produces an integrated body response, and consequently improves circulation, lymphatic and venous draining, assimilation of nutrients and elimination of toxins, joint mobility, posture, clearance of dysfunctional debris, normalisation of cellular physiology and tissue integrity.
