What is The Bowen Technique?
The Bowen Technique originated in Australia in the 1950's pioneered by Thomas Bowen after whom it takes its name.
The Bowen Technique is a gentle, muscle-release therapy using very precise movements over soft tissue, which assist the body to rebalance. It eases muscular stress, promotes pain relief, and aids the recovery of natural energy throughout the body.
What is a treatment like?
The Bowen technique is not invasive, so most of the work is performed through light clothing. The therapist uses very precise movements of the fingers and thumbs over soft tissue. These encourage the body to release tension and initiate a self-healing process. Clients usually experience a deep sense of relaxation during the treatment. An appointment is approximately 45 minutes.
What can it safely treat?
Due to its gentleness, Bowen is suitable for all ages. As a complementary therapy, the Bowen technique treats the whole person, not just the symptoms of disease. Bowen may facilitate the healing of the physical and emotional body.
Bowen can help relieve acute and chronic conditions and has been shown to be effective for migraine, asthma, chronic fatigue, skeletal as well as muscular problems.
It eases neck pain and backache; and can assist problems with the knees, wrists, shoulders and elbows including tennis elbow. The Bowen Technique can be useful in managing hormonal imbalances and is ideal for establishing a regime of long-term health maintenance and stress relief.
