Bowen Technique was developed by Thomas Ambrose Bowen (1916-1982), a gifted healer from Australia. He developed the technique through an interest in massage, soft tissue manipulation and human muscular structure rather than through formal medical training. Initially, he used the technique to help those suffering from musculoskeletal problems but the technique is also widely used to improve many other health issues.
Bowen Technique is a non-invasive remedial therapy which works on the soft connective tissue (fascia) of the body. It is not a massage and there is no manipulation. The technique is light and gentle – allowing the body find it's own problems and healing. It is suitable for people of all ages, including new born babies, pregnant women and the elderly.
The treatment can be carried out through light clothing or directly onto the skin. The therapist uses thumbs and fingers to give ‘rolling-type’
moves over specific muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissue. The client is left alone in the room for a few minutes between each set of moves. The moves trigger electrical impulses in the nerve endings, sending information to the brain - allowing it to sort out problems. The short breaks also give an opportunity to rest the body, re-balance and start the self-healing process.
