Bowen Therapy was developed by Tom Bowen in Australia in the 1950s. Since 1986 it has been taught extensively throughout the world through numerous training schools such as Fascial Kinetics, Bowtech and SmartBowen.
The Bowen Therapy moves are a form of gentle but precise soft tissue manipulation. These moves are focused on crucial junctions of fascial planes, which in turn affect muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerve pathways, blood and lymph vessels. During a session tissue restrictions are freed and reconnections made.
Moves are preformed over meridian lines which open the flow of energy through the body, promoting balance within the body.
Bowen Therapy naturally leads to an optimum rate of healing based on an individual’s body resources and their level of injury.
It is a gentle therapy that does not require deep pressure, although the pressure is varied for each person. For most people the relaxation response is invoked, and it is common for both adults and children to fall asleep during the treatment.
Rapid results are common. Often there is a response in one session and most injuries and pain can start to respond in 3 or 4 sessions. There is no limit to the number of treatments a client can receive. Maintenance sessions are of great benefit to help keep the body in a state of optimal balance and prevent re-injury.
Effective - Physically, Mentally Emotionally and Spiritually
Clients usually experience a deep and long lasting sense of relief, even from long standing injury or pain, stress and tension. Bowen Therapy moves generally help with sleep and bring about a feeling of calm and balance.
Clients who are on a spiritual journey often experience deeper insight during and after a treatment.
