Bowen Therapy

Bowen therapy was developed in Australia by the late Tom Bowen (1916-1982). It is a unique form of neuromuscular re-patterning.

Bowen Therapy is ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE HANDS-ON therapies for treating a myriad of conditions such as physical and emotional pain, while addressing structural, functional and psychological issues.

In a world with increasing demands from busy lifestyles, our bodies are too often geared into survival mode (sympathetic), rather than into healing mode (parasympathetic). While being gentle, non-invasive, safe and effective, Bowen Therapy reboots the autonomic nervous system, allowing the body to shift into healing mode. Each treatment consists of multiple sets of soft tissue manipulations on muscles, nerves and tendons, interspersed by short pauses that allow the body to absorb their effects. The technique stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system and the proprioreceptors, sending information through the central nervous system to the brain, creating shifts as needed towards healing. Our sensory-motor systems repeatedly respond to trauma and everyday stresses via muscular reflexes. As long as the body’s defenses are hyper-activated, healing will not take place. Thus, for effective results, we must acknowledge and respect the body’s criteria for healing.

Bowen Therapy’s gentle resetting of the physical body encourages the brain to rewire and reset to patterns that preceded illnesses or injury and helps the body to regain its own blueprint for health. As a Bowen practitioner, we set the framework and provide the environment in which the body can best initiate this healing process. The technique is gentle, non-invasive, and can be performed through clothing.

“I expect to pass through this world but once.
Any good thing therefore that I can do,
Or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature,
Let me do it now.
Let me not defer or neglect it,
For I shall not pass this way again.”

~ Thomas Ambrose Bowen, 1916 – 1982
