Bowen Therapy and Bowen Therapists Information

Bowen Therapy is a holistic system of healing developed in Australia in the 1950s by Tom Bowen. The technique was limited to Australia until Bowen's death in 1982, when it was named, and spread by Bowen's apprentices.
It is Remedial and Holistic and a simple and focused form of 'hands-on' bodywork that can bring remarkable results. The technique prompts the body to reset and heal itself, promoting relief of pain and recovery of energy. The therapist uses thumbs and forefingers to make Bowen's unique sets of gentle, rolling-type moves, which are then altered with leaving the client to rest for a few minutes. These short breaks allow the body to respond by making the subtle and fine adjustments needed for healing. The experience of a treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing. Because the therapy is so gentle, it is considered to be suitable for all ages. The precise, light movements are applied either directly on the skin or through light clothing to the muscles, tendons or ligaments. A delicate, cross-fibre movement is used to release tension and energetic blocks held in the muscles, allowing the body to rebalance itself naturally and therefore maximise the potential for healing.

A typical session takes place over 30 to 45 minutes, with breaks during the session to allow the treatment to sink in. Sessions are usually part of a series of three to five sessions, beginning with general stress loading points such as the lower and upper back, before moving on to areas of stress specific to the person being treated. However, for the sensitive individual, a session can last only 10-15 minutes.

Bowen Therapy offers a gentle and effective treatment and is used to treat a wide variety of complaints including :-

back & neck pain
tennis & golfers elbows
respiratory conditions
fibromyalgea
frozen shoulder
headache
sports injuries
lymphatic drainage
chronic fatigue
high blood pressure
stress

The Bowen Technique has also been successfully used on animals as well, and practitioners of Bowen Technique for animals can be found all over the world. The Bowen Technique helps to rebalance the body, increasing performance, relieving muscle and tendon strain, and increasing quality of life for both performance animals and pets.
