Bowen Therapy is a gentle way of working with connective tissue points to bring the body back to alignment, the muscles back to balance and the whole body to ease. The Bowen Technique was developed by Tom Bowen in Geelong, Australia, and is now taught worldwide by Ossie & Elaine Rentsch as Bowtech,  “The Bowen Technique”.

More about Bowen Therapy

This powerful therapy involves physical touch and correction, without needing to engage the brain. The treatment comprises sequences of small gentle moves, each at a specific site on the body, with a light cross-fibre movement of muscles, tendons or ligaments.

Through this series of gentle rolling movements of the practitioner’s thumbs and fingers, connecting with the client’s soft tissue, muscles, ligaments and organs, ‘messages’ are transmitted throughout the body. This signals the body to commence its own healing sequences and encourages the body to realign itself. This is to assist the body’s natural ability to realign, repair and co-ordinate its own healing, bringing it back to balance and harmony.

Bowen therapy’s gentle and effective effects often brings substantial relief even after the first session. Generally clients only need two or three treatments, usually one week apart. Treatments can be done through clothing when preferred, as no oils are used. Treatment sessions can last from 30 to 50 minutes.

Bowen is considered safe to use on anyone, newborns to the elderly, with any condition from sports injuries to long term complaints. Over the last 45 years, it has grown in popularity with excellent results reported from those who have had the treatment.

To me Bowen Therapy is not just about the physical effects, but also includes the spiritual harmony and balance within the energetic fields as well.  It is extremely important for the practitioner to not only just know the correct series of moves for each particular treatment, but to also maintain a clear and untainted intent towards the integrity of each client’s return to body.
