Tom Bowen

Bowen Therapy

Bowen is a gentle and relaxing remedial technique developed by Tom Bowen in the late 1950's. It helps the body’s own healing resources to achieve balance and harmony, which can result in lasting relief from pain and discomfort. Benefits should be seen after the first session.
A Bowen treatment consists of sequences of small moves, each at a specific site on the body. The therapist uses light cross-fibre manoeuvres of muscle, tendon or ligament with no forceful manipulation which balance and stimulate energy flows, resulting in a deep sense of overall relaxation. There are regular pauses between the series of gentle moves to give the body time to reset and heal itself.
It is one of the newer non-invasive muscle release techniques that have long term benefits so long as the injury or pain is not re-aggravated.

Bowen can help to improve:

 

Bowen balances the physical, mental and emotional planes and strives to find the origin of the problem and is therefore very effective for musculo-skeletal problems.
