What is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen Therapy is a form of manual therapy that employs gentle rolling moves, targeting the soft connective tissue in the body that connects and supports the muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments. This safe, noninvasive approach to healing releases tension, stress and restores the body’s natural alignment as it activates its natural healing mechanism.

What are the Benefits of Bowen Therapy?

The rolling motion employed by a Bowen therapist aims to treat areas in the body that suffer fascial restrictions. Sounds like a massage? Not quite, as Bowen Therapy does more than eliminate pain and induce relaxation. It repairs and resets the autonomic nervous system to allow the body to reach peak performance. The Bowen Technique is used to treat a variety of health conditions, including:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Stress
  • Headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Colic
  • Joint pain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Digestive issues
  • Bedwetting
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Whiplash
  • TMJ
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Sports injuries
  • Foot problems
  • Tinnitus
  • Menstrual problems
