The Bowen technique was developed in the 1950's by the late Tom Bowen, a chiropractor from Geelong. Since then, over 18000 therapists worldwide have taken Bowen training.
Bowen therapy is a gentle form of bodywork in which very subtle moves performed over the muscles and connective tissue send messages deep into the body, retrieving cellular memory of a preferred, relaxed, balanced way of wellbeing.
A unique skill of the Bowen practitioner is "tissue tension sense", meaning that the practitioners are able to discern stress build-up in muscles and other soft tissues, enabling them to perform specific Bowen moves to assist recovery. There are frequent but very essential pauses throughout the session that allows the body time to respond and begin the healing process.
The technique addresses not only the musculoskeletal framework, but also the fascia, nerves and internal organs. The body's integrated response improves circulation and lymphatic drainage and aids in the assimilation of nutrients and elimination of toxins. The practitioner can target a specific problem or address the body as a whole.
Bowen therapy is extremely gentle and is considered appropriate for anyone from the elderly to pregnant women to newborn babies. It can assist recovery from many conditions, from traumatic injury to chronic illness, depending upon each individual's capacity to heal.
