Bowen Therapy

The Bowen Technique is a cross fibre muscle release technique that balances and stimulates energy flows, resulting in a deep sense of overall relaxation. There are regular pauses between the series of gentle moves to give the body the required time to allow the body to reset and heal itself.

There are various schools of protocols originating from the teachings of Mr Tom Bowen, the founder of the Bowen Technique. The healing is not considered massage but rather a non invasive muscle release technique consisting of a series of gentle cross fibre moves that have long term benefits so long as the injury or pain is not reaggravated.

Bowen Technique strives to find the origin of a problem and is therefore very effective for muscular-skeletal problems, including ankle, knee, lower back and neck pain. Other problems addressed by the Bowen Technique include:
  • Asthma
  • Dizziness
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Headaches
  • Repetitive stress injury (RSI)
  • Whiplash
  • Dental or Facial pain
  • Many muscle or joint pains of unknown origin
  • Emotional stress and anxiety
A treatment usually requires the client to lie on a bed or treatment couch and can be performed through light clothing. Sessions can last from 30 minutes to an hour. It is usually recommended to have two to three sessions of the Bowen Technique with a break of five to ten days between each session.
