What is Bowen Therapy
Bowen Therapy was developed by Tom Bowen in Geelong, Australia in the early 1960’s.Tom trained just a few men, and training in this technique didn’t become readily available for the first time until 1986. Since then it has been taught extensively throughout the world. The therapy has achieved a high status in natural therapies where it is accepted along with other modalities displaying a much longer and established history, which indicates that there is something special about this therapy.

This is a gentle and non invasive way to manipulate the fascia and connective tissue and the results are often felt within the first session. To give you an idea, it is an effective way to treat;
Fast and Effective
Rapid results are common. Often there is a response in one treatment and most injuries and pain respond in 3 or 4 sessions. There is no limit to the number of treatments a client can receive. ‘Preventive’ treatments are of great benefit to help keep the body in a state of optimal balance and to prevent re-injury.
Bowen Therapy is appropriate to use on everyone including
Treatment is commenced after a consultation and discussion of a plan of care. Often the first treatment is simply what is termed the Basic Relaxation Moves. This sequence of moves is very restful but also effective in allowing the fascia to begin the process of rehydrating and ‘unsticking’ itself. During the session there will be ‘waits’ of a few minutes during which I leave the body to respond to the moves already made.
Being a Fascial Kinetics Certified Bowen Therapist I do not leave the Clinic room during treatments which is a different approach to those use to Bowtech.
