The Bowen Technique

Gentle, effective, non-invasive therapy

Sort out old problems  ~   Prevent new ones developing
The Bowen Technique is a gentle and focused form of ‘hands-on’ bodywork and people bring a wide variety of aches and pains, problems and complaints for Bowen treatment.   Two to five treatments, at weekly intervals, are often sufficient to achieve relief from even long-standing pain and complaints.

- no need for pain to achieve gain

The Bowen Technique addresses the same range of conditions that might be treated by a physiotherapist, chiropractor or osteopath.  However, it is different from these therapies as there is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used.  It is not massage, nor does it require any equipment and the treatment is given through light clothing. 

- sensible and effective

Bowen is firmly rooted in human anatomy and physiology and the light touch of the Bowen treatment procedures target specific muscle groups, connective tissue, nerve pathways, blood and lymph circulation and energy points.  The body is very sensitive and responsive to light touch and Bowen relies on this to prompt into action the mechanisms of pain relief, balance and function that are inherent in the human system. Because Bowen appears to stimulate the body’s inborn ‘blueprint’ for health, balance and good function, Bowen has often successfully addressed an extraordinary variety of conditions.

The Bowen Technique was developed in the 1950’s by Tom Bowen, an innovative and gifted therapist in Geelong, Australia.  His reputation for successful treatments brought literally thousands of people to his clinic every year through word of mouth.  Bowen himself died in 1982 but his therapy is now well known and well-established in Australia and many other countries.  (see: )
