The Bowen Technique

 

Was developed in the 1950s by the late Tom Bowen in Geelong, Australia. The Bowen Technique is a gentle yet dynamic body therapy that is therapeutic and can be very effective. It empowers the bodys own healing resources, achieving balance and harmony, frequently resulting in fast and lasting relief from pain and discomfort. The technique is considered safe to use on anyone from newborns to the elderly, with any condition from sports injuries to chronic complaints.

A treatment consists of a sequences of small gentle moves, each at specific sites on the body. There is no forceful or heavy manipulation, just a light cross-fibre manoeuvring of a muscle, tendons or ligaments, pleasant to the recipient. The Bowen Technique taps into the bodys natural feedback system that monitors the state of each muscle.

As well as releasing any tension within the muscles, the moves also work on energetic blocks which may be accumulated by injury, tension or dis-ease, allowing increased energy flow and hence healing. Treatments can be performed through light clothing, and substantial relief is frequently experienced after the first few sessions.

Treatments last about 45 minutes and take place fully clothed (light clothing is recommended). Generally 2-3 treatments once a week are sufficient to achieve lasting relief although longer periods of treatment may be of benefit for some problems. Treatment costs vary, but 20-35 per treatment is a useful guide.
