What is Bowen Therapy?

Developed by the late Tom Bowen, Bowen Therapy is a remarkably effective professional bodywork technique, that when applied, initiates a process of natural auto-regulation to occur in the spinal column and consequently throughout the whole body. The resultant effect of this is a rapid elimination or reduction of symptoms, followed by an increase in energy and an unmistakable sense of well-being. Bowen Therapy is essentially a soft tissue osteopathic-style therapy, designed to remove pain, physiological dysfunction and even psychological imbalances, by restoring the structural integrity of the body. Its application is suitable and safe for all ages, from new-borns to the elderly.

A Bowen Therapy session influences the musculoskeletal system, autonomic nervous system, lymphatic system and acupuncture meridians, making it a truly comprehensive healing modality.

How does it work?

The Bowen Therapist makes a series of specific cross fibre rolling moves using varying pressure over muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves, which send neurological impulses to the brain. This is followed by periods of rest whereby the practitioner may occasionally leave the room to allow the body to respond; rebalancing and realigning itself.

The stimulation of the treatments are like pressing 'reset' and allowing the body to resume the natural healing process, re-organising itself and releasing muscle and fascial dysfunction via the natural activation of various neural reflexes. By alerting the body's innate healing mechanism, the resultant effect is a rapid elimination or reduction of symptoms, followed by an increase in energy.
