About Bowen Therapy

What is Bowen Therapy?

It is a hands-on bodywork technique. It is both simple and effective.  Developed in the 1970’s by Tom Bowen in Australia, Bowen therapy is still fairly new to the world. Whether you’re a practitioner or a newcomer to healthcare Bowen therapy provides many simple tools that are shown to work for chronic pain, inflammation and misalignment.  It is unique not because of how it is performed but for how well it works. Best of all, it is easily learned.

What Does a Bowen Treatment Entail?

Treatments are usually done through clothing and in any comfortable position for the client.  It can be applied quickly and efficiently or used for long and deeply moving bodily shifts that can include emotional effects too.  Bowen Therapy is safe to use on anyone – from the newborn to the elderly.

“It’s the best and most relaxing massage I’ve ever had”.

What’s the History of Bowen Therapy?

Bowen Therapy was developed in Australia by the late Thomas A Bowen (1916-1982).  He viewed his work as a gift and developed procedural combinations of his therapy to address specific concerns,  Though his therapeutic method has been systemized by many schools the tenet of the therapies and procedures have remarkably remained consistent throughout the world.  The remarkable story of Tom Bowen is laid out in his illuminating biography.
