Bowen Therapy

Bowen therapy takes a whole body approach to soft tissue manipulation. It was developed in Australia by Tom Bowen in the 1950s and quickly gained popularity due to innovative way that it could be applied to stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms, promoting balance and harmony within the body.
Bowen therapy involves gentle rolling movements over specific muscles, tendons, and ligaments, triggering a neurological response that affects the muscles and joints to reset dysfunctional patterns, promoting a deep state of relaxation. The release is from deep within the fascia, the deep connective tissue that surrounds and supports muscles, organs, and other structures in the body. By manipulating the fascia, the aim is to release tension and restore proper tissue mobility, improving circulation, reducing inflammation, and enhancing overall tissue health. This neurological shift brings the physical body out of the sympathetic (fight-or-flight) state, into a parasympathetic (rest-and-digest) state, that has positive flow on effects that can have numerous positive effects on the body, including pain reduction and improved healing.
This non-talking, whole-body approach takes into account the interconnectedness of the body systems and treats the body as a complete organism. Rather than solely focusing on the site of pain or discomfort, the technique aims to restore balance and address underlying issues that may contribute to the presenting symptoms. 

Bowen Therapy is suitable for people of all ages, from birth to the grave. 

Each body responds differently to Bowen therapy and results may take several days to be seen. The treatment may then need to be repeated, one week later, then two weeks after then. The idea is to further reinforce in the body, the more healthful patterns. Results may vary depending on the individual and the specific condition being treated.
