Bowen Therapy is a healing system developed in Australia by the late Tom Bowen. Bowen is not massage, acupressure, chiropractic or anything else. It is a form of therapy all on its own. It appears to be very simple, but Bowen treatments are incredibly relaxing, curative and relatively long lasting in their effects. Bowen is an incredibly efficient therapy which achieves great results for minimal gentle input.
The Bowen Technique is a cross-fibre, non-invasive muscle release technique that balances and stimulates energy flows, resulting in a deep sense of overall relaxation and long term benefits.
Bowen Technique strives to find the origin of a problem and is therefore very effective for muscular-skeletal problems, including ankle, knee, lower back and neck pain. it is possible to get major improvements in pain, movement and strength in most areas of the body - jaw, neck, back, hamstrings, knees, ankles, breathing, sexual function, shoulders, arms and wrists.
Other problems addressed by the Bowen Technique include:
• Frozen shoulder
• Repetitive stress injury (RSI)
• Dental or Facial pain
• Many muscle or joint pains of unknown origin
• Emotional stress and anxiety
A treatment usually requires the client to lie on a treatment bed and can be performed through light clothing. The practitioner does a series of precise moves on specific points of the body and takes regular pauses between the series of gentle moves to give the body time to adjust, reset and heal itself. The moves rebalance energy flows and reduce muscle tension. This reduces pain and restores function to the body. The effects of a Bowen treatment on a body have been compared to fine tuning a musical instrument
Sessions can last from 30 minutes to an hour. It is usually recommended to have two to three sessions of the Bowen Technique with a break of five to ten days between each session.
