Bowen Therapy/Technique

Balance your body:Balance your life

Bowen Therapy/Technique is known around the world for its amazing ability to reduce inflammation and pain, as well as, correct misalignments in the body. Developed in Australia by Tom Bowen, this 50 year old form of body work is a system of moves that activates the body's natural ability to heal itself.  The gentle rolling action causes a small vibration that moves through the body stimulating lymph flow, blood flow, the nervous system and the body's innate ability to heal itself.  The positive effects of a treatment on the body provides lasting relief from pain and misalignment.

During a Bowen session, the practitioner uses thumbs and fingers to make rolling type moves over different muscles and tissue. In between sets of moves the practitioner will leave the room.  These pauses and the gentleness of the treatment are what make Bowen unique.  It offers rapid, long-lasting relief from pain and discomfort.  Most conditions respond in 2-3 treatments.

While it can help speed up recovery time, Bowen Therapy/Technique is not meant to replace medical treatment. However, due to its high success rate, more and more members of the medical profession are seeing Bowen Therapy as a viable treatment option.
