Bowen Therapy (Bowen Technique)

Bowen Therapy is a holistic and multidimensional approach to pain relief and healing that has helped many over the past 50 years. It is based on the recognition by Tom Bowen, its originator, who lived and practiced in Geelong, Australia, that the underlying cause or source of many musculoskeletal, neurological, neuromuscular, and other health or pain problems could be found in the soft tissue or fascia.

Bowen Therapy, through specific soft tissue or fascial release and integration techniques, stimulates specific receptors that enable the body itself to correct dysfunctions and restore homeostasis (balance) on a holistic level. Through treating the cause rather than the symptoms, Bowen Therapy can have profound and permanent healing and pain relief outcomes. This relief is experienced by many people who present with a wide range of painful conditions, even where other modalities or treatments have resulted in transient or little improvement. Importantly, Bowen Therapy does not rely on a detailed diagnosis of the problem and its origins, which is often costly and indeterminate. Bowen Therapy treats the whole body, and its holistic effects are apparent in patients who find resolution to problems above and beyond those for which they have sought treatment, for example, lack of energy, stress, or emotional issues.
