Bowen Technique Therapy was developed by Tom Bowen in Geelong, Australia in the 1950’s.
Feel good with Bowen Therapy
It does not impose the will of the therapist but treats you as a unique individual. Bowen Therapy offers your body and mind the opportunity to reboot itself and restore structural integrity, reduce pain, anxiety and bring balance back to the body.
It is a gentle subtle therapy non-invasive and relaxing therapy. Bowen Technique Therapy is suitable for anyone from new-born babies through to our older people. Most clients report a sense of calmness and wellbeing at the end of a treatment.
Bowen Technique Therapy consists of three moves. Skin slack, gentle pressure and then rolling moves over muscle, tendon and fascia.
It is not massage.
Unique to Bowen are a series of short breaks whereby the body is left resting quietly to respond to the moves. This gives the body time to trigger the brain to switch off the “Fight or Flight” stress response and make subtle and fine adjustments which help to relieve pain, tension and rebalance the body both chemically and physically
Important Features of Bowen
It is tailored to your symptoms and needs. We neither need nor will give a diagnosis.
We look at working with the original source of the problem (often not the area that you are experiencing pain). It is a whole body treatment which has the aim of helping your body to be able to identify and correct areas to restore balance to the body.
Being able to switch off the “Fight or Flight” response has a huge effect on the body, it can not only help to create calmness, but reduce blood pressure, improve breathing, aid circulation, digestion and boost the immune system. With the calming comes relaxation of the fascia and therefore promotes relaxation of tight muscles, tendons, ligaments and scar tissue.
How does it work?
The Bowen Technique helps the body remember how to heal itself. The gentle yet powerful Bowen moves send neurological impulses to the brain resulting in immediate responses of muscle relaxation and pain reduction. The moves create energy surges. Electrical impulses sent to the nervous system remind the body to regain normal movement in joints, muscles and tendons. This helps relieve muscle spasms and increase blood and lymph flow.
Some people feel shifts in their bodies during and after a Bowen session.
While many experience immediate pain relief, improvement is just as likely to unfold over the next few days to a week.
