This gentle and relaxing remedial body technique is a holistic and multidimensional approach to pain relief and healing. It aims to help the body's own healing resources to achieve balance and harmony, therefore resulting in relief from pain and discomfort.
Tom Bowen, its originator from Geelong, Victoria, recognised that the underlying cause or source of many musculoskeletal, neurological, neuromuscular and other health or pain problems could be found in the body's soft tissue (here referred to as fascia), which embraces all nerves, bones, arteries, veins and muscles. Therefore fascial dysfunction can affect every structure, nerve and organ in the body.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Using a sequence of gentle moves that create a vibrational resonance or energy that travels through the connective tissue to release accumulated blockages, Bowen therapy rehydrates, improves posture and gives a greater fluidity of movement.
Through specific soft tissue or fascial release and integration techniques, Bowen therapy stimulates specific receptors that enable the body itself to correct dysfunctions and restore homeostasis (balance) on a holistic level, thus treating the cause of pain and discomfort rather than the symptoms.
