What is Bowen Technique?


Bowen Technique was originally developed in the 1950s by Australian Tom Bowen who believed that the body has the ability to adjust, adapt and heal itself.


It's a totally holistic and extremely gentle, non-invasive therapy in which the therapist, using only thumbs and fingers, makes gentle rolling movements over muscles, ligaments and tendons at precise points.


The gentle moves of a Bowen treatment send impulses to the brain and stimulates energy flow, promoting the body's own self-healing resources to restore balance; facilitate lymphatic drainage of toxins and waste products; promote good circulation; release tension and increase mobility. By relaxing the patient physically, it also allows any emotional blocks to be released. 


During the session the patient is left to absorb the benefits of the therapy, making the subtle adjustments which will help it heal and rebalance.
