What is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen Therapy, also known as Bowen Technique, is a gentle and non-invasive form of bodywork that aims to promote healing, pain relief, and overall well-being. Developed by Tom Bowen in the 1950s, this holistic therapy involves a series of precise and rolling movements over specific muscles, tendons, and fascia. By stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms, Bowen Therapy helps restore balance and harmony within the body, addressing various physical and emotional conditions.

Typical Bowen Therapy Treatment

A typical Bowen Therapy session involves the client lying down comfortably, usually clothed, while the practitioner performs a series of gentle, rolling movements over specific points on the body. These movements, often performed with fingers and thumbs, stimulate the body’s proprioceptors, initiating a natural healing response. The therapy is known for its pauses between moves, allowing the body to integrate the information and respond accordingly. A session typically lasts 45 to 60 minutes, and clients often report a deep sense of relaxation during and after the treatment.
