Bowen Technique

The Bowen Therapy – Health care with a difference

The Bowen Therapy is a drug-free, non-invasive, hands-on therapy which can be administered through light clothing, with the client sitting, lying or standing.

Using only fingers and thumbs, the Bowen practitioner makes small, rolling movements over muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissue at precise points on the body.

One of the most profound effects Bowen can have is in shifting the Autonomic Nervous System                   – which controls over 80% of bodily functions – from sympathetic (perceived threat response) to parasympathetic (rest, digest, recover) dominance, releasing stress at a very deep level.                                This subtle but dynamic process allows the body to re-align, address imbalances in functions and chemical composition and, as far as possible, restore homeostasis (physiological equilibrium) within the body.

This could explain why even a small number of Bowen treatments frequently reactivate the recovery process, when healing from trauma, sickness, injury or surgery has stalled or reached a plateau.

Short-term (acute) injury is usually resolved in three to five sessions, while long-standing (chronic) conditions may require longer. In addition to addressing muscular-skeletal problems such as back, neck, shoulder and knee pain, whiplash, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, carpel tunnel syndrome and sports injuries, Bowen can also help with conditions such as asthma, hay fever, eczema, migraine, IBS, high blood pressure, dystonia, depression, anxiety, addiction, stress, hormonal inbalance, MS, ME and fibromyalgia.
