Bowen is a holistic bodywork technique that can help resolve a wide range of conditions ranging from traumatic injury, to chronic pain or illness, to stress-related conditions and compensation patterns, and blockages from old (unresolved) injuries. The results can include a return to balance, a pain-free body and a relaxed mind.

Bowen therapy is suitable for everybody from pregnant women and newborns to the elderly and those recovering from physical, medical and other long-term conditions.

Bowen can also be used for helping maintain optimum health and vitality, or for a luxurious whole-body deep relaxation treatment.

Bowen’s relatively gentle “moves” over muscle and other soft tissues address the body as a whole, and is said to initiate the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Benefits can almost always be immediately felt on a physical, emotional, mental or energetic level.

The Bowen technique uses subtle moves on the body’s fascia (your body’s connective tissue) to send messages deep into the body, retrieving the memory of a preferred and balanced state of health. The Science behind Bowen is complex, yet a simple explanation of the anatomical and physiological structures influenced by Bowen Therapy is available on the Bowen Training Australia website: Tell me again, how does Bowen work?

Results can be remarkable, even from the first session. Usually only a few sessions are needed to correct the presenting problem and return visits will be recommended only if you continue to feel sustained benefits.
