The Bowen Technique
The Bowen Technique is a gentle, hands-on, non-invasive therapy that encourages the body to
realign and heal itself. It involves a series of rolling type moves over muscles, tendons,
ligaments and soft tissue, which helps to promote healing, improve energy levels and reduce pain.
Sessions are generally carried out on a treatment couch but can equally be done effectively in
a seated position.
The Bowen Technique was developed in Australia by Tom Bowen in the 1950's and only started to be
taught and practiced outside Australia in the 1980's.
Usually 2 - 3 treatments are enough to encourage some improvement and change. Bowen is such a
gentle and non-invasive therapy that it is regarded as safe and effective for people of all
ages, including new born babies and the elderly.
