Bowen therapy was developed by an Australian; Tom Bowen (1916-1982)from Geelong Victoria. The actual origins of his concepts are unknown or at least unclear though there do appear to be links with traditional Chinese medicine.
What is clear is that while working as a masseur in junior football clubs in Geelong, he recognized an apparent common causal relationship in many seemingly unrelated painful conditions, particularly musculoskeletal but including neurological and other health problems.
He identified this causal link or relationship as being the soft tissue or fascia that envelops the whole body from head to toe. Bowen Therapy is now taught and practised around the world, achieving remarkable results.
How Bowen Therapy can help you
Bowen Technique, is a gentle form of body work in which subtle moves performed over the muscles and connective tissue send messages deep into the body, retrieving cellular memory.
The therapist is gently manipulating soft tissue, (muscle, tendons, ligaments, & fascia) to stimulate specific receptors & also initiating a reaction through the nervous system.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.
The technique addresses not only the musculoskeletal framework, but also the fascia, nerves and internal organs. The body's integrated response improves circulation and lymphatic drainage and aids assimilation of nutrients and elimination of toxins.
A Bowen Therapist does not diagnose, and the technique is not designed to replace medical care. Bowen can be used safely in conjunction with any other medical care you are undertaking.
