Bowen Therapy is a unique non-intrusive, complementary, hands-on pain management therapy/bodywork. It acts upon the nervous system and addresses the root cause of the pain.
Bowen Therapy utilizes gentle moves over precise points of the body and prompts the body’s innate ability to relieve pain, restriction and imbalance without the need for deep, manipulative or forceful treatment.
While addressing various health concerns, Bowen Therapy also helps to reduce anxiety and stress levels. It also helps to create symmetry and balance of the body.
Bowen Therapy treatment is pleasant – therapists use light, cross-fibre manoeuvres of muscle, tendon or ligament with no forceful manipulation. Treatment is usually done through light clothing with no lotions or oils being used. There is no cracking, probing or other kind of forceful manipulation as our bodies do not always need rough manipulations in order to be healed.
Bowen therapy is not Massage, Acupressure or Shiatsu.
This gentle therapy can be used on anyone, including newborns, seniors and pregnant women. Bowen Therapy can address a variety of conditions, both chronic and acute.
After getting better, people often don’t need maintenance visits for many years unless a new issue arises.
Often people turn to Bowen therapy after hearing about positive outcomes of the treatments from others or sometimes after trying some other forms of treatments.
