Thomas Bowen (1916 - 1982) The initiator of the Bowen Technique
Tom Bowen was born in Australia on APril 18, 1916. In the 1950's Tom began his practice treating workmates and others that had heard of his reputation in the front room of a friend's home in the evenings after work. Word of his healing hands spread throughout the region and soon he could not accommodate the number of people wanting his treatment in this part-time manner so he opened a full time practice.
Not being formally trained in any bodywork modality, Tom, through his own study and practice, developed what we now call the Bowen Technique. With his amazing skills of assessment, he was able to alleviate many people's problems with very few, relatively gentle, soft tissue manipulations. Tom was highly selective of those who wanted to watch him work and learn his technique. Only six people worked with Tome over his years of practice. One of these was Ossie Rentsch from Hamilton Victoria. After many months of following Tom and watching him treat his many patients Ossie began to understand the technique. Under Tom's close supervision and his assistance Ossie documented the work (a painstaking exercise as there were no charts or explanations available), and this is an original record of Tom's work.
What eventuated was a carefully documented and authenticated record of this amazing technique. The technique could now be taught and became what we know today as Bowtech®, the Bowen technique.
Adter Tom died in 1982 Ossie and his wife Elaine formed the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia and began to teach the technique. They had promised Tom that they would make his work known throughout the world and they have more than kept their promise. Today over 26,000 people have completed basic Bowtech®, the Bowen Technique course, in 30 countries and in 6 languages. Worldwide, there are now 90 instructors teaching Bowtech®.
