Bowen Therapy (or 'The Bowen Technique') was developed in Australia by Tom Bowen in the latter half of the twentieth century. It is a gentle, effective way of helping people to become free of pain without resorting to manipulation, needles, pills or massage.
No forceful manipulation is used. The therapist uses their thumbs and index fingers to perform a series of gentle rolling moves over precise points on your body. (This can be done over thin clothing.)
These very precise and subtle moves aim to disturb the muscles, connective tissues and subtle energies within the body. Your body is prompted to readjust itself by tapping into its own resources for self-healing.
A feature of the Bowen Therapy is that nothing is forced to happen. The therapist gently and precisely does the work that triggers your body’s natural healing responses. People may often feel an improvement within a few days.
