Bowen therapy is based on the body work system of treatment as developed and practiced by Tom Bowen. Tom practiced in Geelong between 1950 – 1982. In formulating his technique, he recognized that relationships existed between some health complaints and patterns of muscular dysfunction. Through years of dedicated practice, the techniques developed into a treatment system that has shown to have great benefits in improving the lives and health of many people.
I have studied Bowen technique through several different teachers and practitioners. I have gained good insight in its dependability and understand that it can be applied to a wide range of issues that may not be responding to other forms of treatment.
My aim in using Bowen technique is to assess & understand your health issues and use this knowledge to release tension within muscles, tendons & ligaments, assisting the body to release patterns of dysfunction and create balance in the physical systems.
Bowen therapy is effective in re-aligning the body, allowing it to return to its state of structural balance and harmony. By understanding your health issues and working with the Bowen system, I can ensure the best treatment for your circumstance.
When treating, a client is positioned lying or seated with light clothing on. Gentle therapeutic movements are applied across the muscle, tendons and ligaments, usually through clothing. A Bowen treatment will last between 45 – 60 minutes. Clients will usually feel a deep state of calm & relaxation, which will often continue for days after the treatment, while the body restores itself to its natural state of wellbeing.
