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.

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.
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.
