Bowen Therapy

What is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen Therapy is a modality of healing established in Australia during the sixties and seventies by Geelong 'Osteopath' Tom Bowen. Since being popularised by students of Tom in the eighties, it has achieved unprecedented international acclaim and is now taught and practiced worldwide.

Bowen Therapy is a holistic technique that can be used to treat many physical and psychological conditions such as sport and accident injuries, stress and emotional disorders. Bowen Therapy aims to treat the cause of problems – not just the symptoms.

Who Can Try Bowen Therapy?

Bowen is suitable for anyone including pregnant women, newborn babies and the elderly. A Bowen treatment supports the body promoting healing, pain relief, recovery of energy and wellbeing.

What Happens During a Treatment?

During a treatment you lie down, relax and enjoy the gentle moves that set in motion the gradual release of physical tension from the body and mental stress of the mind. As the treatment progresses I will become aware of any areas that are likely to be causing you pain or discomfort. The treatment then becomes more specific to your needs, with a focus on remedying the problem areas.

Treatments are typically very enjoyable; you may experience one or a combination of, a warm flow of energy throughout the body, complete relaxation, pain relief, micro sleeps, or dream states.

Treatment Duration

Treatments are typically an hour in duration. First consultations; allow 60 - 70 minutes as I will need to assess your concerns.

Acute conditions: recommend 2 - 3 sessions at weekly intervals.

Chronic conditions: may require several sessions at weekly intervals.

General Health & Wellbeing: many clients choose a treatment at monthly intervals as they report having greater mobility, increased energy levels, quality sleep, and are generally more at ease physically and emotionally.


Treatments $80 per hour.
