What is the Bowen Technique?
The Bowen Technique is a soft tissue therapy. An holistic healing technique that addresses the whole body. It is a very gentle, non-invasive, unique bodywork which I have seen to have had subtle, effective outcomes with a wide range of acute and chronic physical issues. Bowen has also helped many of my clients with emotional issues such as grief, depression and anxiety.
Bowen helps to clear structural, postural and muscular imbalances within the body. Everyone who has a Bowen session experiences a different reaction. The body is in a continual state of change and Bowen works on these changes to rebalance and heal. It is very hard to predict how your body will react to the moves performed during a Bowen session.
The Bowen Technique aids in healing by switching the autonomic nervous system from Sympathetic (fight, fright, flight mode) to Parasympathetic (rest, relax, repair, digest mode) and addresses fascial adhesion that may be causing imbalances within the body.
The History of the Bowen Technique
The Bowen Technique was developed by the late Tom Bowen in Geelong, Victoria in 1950’s. Tom simply became interested in ways to alleviate pain and suffering in the human body and began to realise that certain moves on the body had healing properties.
In 1974 Oswald (Ozzie) Rentsch met Tom, leant the technique and was authorised to document his work. In 1987 Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia was founded and the Bowen Technique is now being embraced by health professional worldwide due to its effectiveness in healing the body.
