Bowen Therapy (The Original Bowen Technique from Australia)

Bowen Therapy stimulates the body using gentle moves to allow the body to heal itself, often profoundly. It can provide relief for many types of injuries and other health problems, both acute and chronic, and it does so holistically, via the body’s innate healing mechanisms.

The moves are gentle, but purposeful, and can be done through light clothing. Between each set of moves, the practitioner pauses for as many minutes as are needed for the client’s body to begin responding.  Bowen is considered the Homeopathy of Bodywork where “Less is More”

Receiving a Session

During the session, the movements are applied in a series of patterns. Once a series of moves are performed there is a pause. These pauses also afford the client a “personal space” so as to achieve energetic realignment without interference, and enter a profound relaxation.

This deeply relaxed state acts upon the body’s autonomic nervous system, which creates homeostasis at the cellular level. Because it addresses the body as a whole, Bowenwork treats beyond the presented symptom and makes physical, chemical, emotional and mental adjustments. Through this precise resetting of the autonomic nervous system, the individual’s body is freed to find its own natural balance.

Sessions usually last an hour. Treatments are often given to more than one client at a time, due to the required pauses between sets of moves. It is important to schedule a second visit one week later, as two visits are necessary to lay the foundation of the work in the body. At that point, the practitioner and the client can assess the responses to the work, and decide together if further work would be helpful.
