Bowen Technique

What is Bowen?

The Bowen Technique has been described as being "one of the most down to earth therapies in the book". Developed from the 1950s until his death in 1982, the acclaimed Australian therapist Tom Bowen helped many thousands of people overcome their pains and ailments using a series of gentle, non-manipulative moves over muscle and connective tissue using nothing more than his thumbs and index fingers.

What happens during a session of Bowen

A full case study will be taken.

The Bowen Technique itself consists of a series of gentle moves where the trained practitioner uses thumbs and index fingers, making very gentle rolling-type moves over precise points on the body. These gentle moves aim to disturb the muscles, connective tissue and fascia within the body to create balance and stimulate energy flow.

During the course of a treatment, the client is left resting several times, allowing the body time to incorporate the gentle healing moves which have just been performed. This allows the body's different systems to respond to the moves with the subtle and fine adjustments that help to relieve tension, reduce pain and initiate the healing process.
