The Bowen Technique stimulates energy flow which activates the body’s own resources to reset and heal itself. Bowen produces lasting relief from pain and discomfort. It is non-invasive and can be done through clothing when preferred. In most cases only 2 or 3 treatments are required. Bowen is holistic so conditions other than those being treated are often helped as well. It addresses the musculoskeletal framework, facia, nerves and internal organs, improving circulation, lymph drainage, nutrient assimilation and elimination of toxins.
WHAT IS BOWEN THERAPY
Bowen Therapy is a gentle form of body work in which very subtle moves performed over the muscles and connective tissue send messages deep into the body, retrieving cellular memory of a preferred, relaxed, balanced way of wellbeing. Results can be remarkable, even from the first session; often only a few sessions are needed to correct the presenting problem.
There are frequent but very essential pauses throughout the session that allows the body time to respond and begin the healing process. The practitioner can target a specific problem or address the body as a whole. Bowen can help clients on all levels; Mr. Tom Bowen said that any or every condition could be addressed by this technique.
Can the Bowen Technique help me?
What can Bowen be used For?
Can I use other therapies?
A Bowen session initiates a cascade of beneficial changes that continue for several days. Applying other manipulative therapies during this time can interrupt this process and undermine the overall effectiveness of the Bowen work. It is therefore recommended that the client wait a week before commencing any other manual therapy.
Where did the Bowen Technique originate?
It was developed in the 1950”s by the late Tom Bowen from Geelong, Australia He became a celebrated therapist, regularly treating over 13,000 patients each year. In 1974 he invited Oswald and Elaine Rentsch to study with him and document his work. Honouring their promise, they began to teach the technique in 1986. Since then therapists worldwide have been trained. A strict code of ethics applies to all accredited practitioners.
