What is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen uses a gentle rolling action over soft tissue to potentially create a signal to the brain. 21st Century science is beginning to demonstrate a non-intrusive approach with no adjustments or manipulation can aid and balance the body.

Bowen works with the bodies natural intelligence which is always seeking health. We don’t impose our will on the body we simply give the body the information to make the adjustments the body needs to return to health. Many people have suffered years of pain and have tried every therapy possible until they try Bowen and are amazed at the results.

What happens in a treatment session?

A session lasts approximately 90 minutes. Following a full consultation with your practitioner, your treatment will begin. This will consist of specific, gentle rolling across soft tissue, often through light clothing. Unique breaks are incorporated into the treatment where you are left to rest. The body is able to rebalance itself at this time.

Bowen in sports

A growing number of athletes and professional sports people are discovering that regular Bowen Technique sessions enhances performance and reduces the incidence of injury. Then, when an injury does occur (especially soft tissue damage), Bowen can bring rapid relief and a quick return to their sport.

Bowen is stress management

Many clients with busy and demanding lifestyles use Bowen as a means of stress management and general health maintenance seeing their Bowen therapist 2 to 4 times a year.

Anatomical understanding of the Bowen Technique

In simplistic terms, the body is made up of connective tissue, each part attached to and influencing another. For example, your shoulder injury may be creating pain in your hip. This could be due to change in the connective tissue tensions throughout the body system. The pain or injury you are experiencing is often related to lifestyle choices, vocation (for example desk work), sport or even emotional stress. Bowen is an emerging science that relies on skilled practitioners with excellent anatomical knowledge and practical hands on intelligence.
