Bowen Therapy

Bowtech, the original Bowen Technique, is a gentle form of body work in which very soft gentle moves are made over specific areas of the body like the head of the muscles, connective tissues, golgi receptors etc. messages  are sent  to the brain. The brain reverses the brain map, activates the electrical impulses unblocking  the blockages and heals the area of concern. Results can be remarkable right from the first session.

There are frequent but very essential pauses throughout the session that allows the body time to respond and begin the healing process. The practitioner can target specific problem or address the body as a whole.

Unlike many other hands on therapies, the Bowen technique does not use forceful manipulation. A unique skill of the Bowen practitioner is tissue tension sense, meaning that the practitioners are able to discern stress build up in muscles and other soft tissue enabling them to perform specific Bowen moves to assist recovery.

The technique addresses not only the musculo-skeletal framework, but also the fascia, nerves and internal organs. The body's integrated response improves circulation and lymphatic drainage and aids in the assimilation of nutrients and elimination of toxins.

The Bowen Technique helps on all levels. Mr. Tom Bowen said that any or every condition could be addressed by this technique.

Can I use other therapies?
A Bowen session starts showing beneficial changes that continue for several days. Applying other manipulative therapies during this time can interrupt this process and undermine the overall effectiveness of the Bowen work. It is therefore recommended that the client wait for a week before commencing any other manual therapy.
