WHAT IS THE BOWEN TECHNIQUE?
The Bowen Technique is a remedial & holistic hands on therapy.
The Technique frees up the central nervous system, and brings function back to des-functional muscles and tendons
Technique treats the whole body with the body choosing to change and
adjust and realign during and following treatment.
Bowen consists of small precise moves on specific points of the body which are light and gentle and can be used on the young, fragile and elderly.
The Bowen moves are organised into sets with frequent and important pauses between sets to give the body time to evaluate and start the process of re-alignment.
Technique uses movements on specific points on muscles, tendons and
nerves, some of which generate energetic movement and others which block
or reflect energetic movement.
targeted area of the body is isolated between blocks, energy is generated
in the area as the practitioner moves over the muscle and the energy
reverberates between the blocks until the muscle tension in the area
is reduced and, therefore, relaxed.
has widely been suggested that the Bowen Technique may introduce specific
harmonic frequencies to the body systems. This resonance activates and
promotes the bodies own healing process.
Bowen Technique was pioneered by Tom Ambrose Bowen of Australia
had a great interest in massage and bodywork and spent time observing
football trainers and others involved with sports.

HOW IS BOWEN APPLIED?
Bowen Technique is applied through the use of rolling type moves using
thumbs and fingers on these precise points on the body, which stimulate
energy and vibration into the muscle and soft tissue.
HOW DOES IT WORK, THE ANATOMY SIDE
buzz word in Bowen is Fascia, Fascia is strong connective
tissue which performs a number of functions, including enveloping and
isolating the muscles of the body, providing structural support and
has been shown that fascia runs in anatomical trains up,
down and through the body to the cellular level in continuous communication.
It appears to have the ability to adjust itself in terms of tension.
connections are so complex that pain in a given area of the body could
have as its primary cause, an imbalance arising in an apparently totally
unrelated part of the body. Shoulder, back and neck pain frequently
starts with an injury in the legs, ankle or foot. The secondary problems
occur when the body starts to compensate for, or favour the injury,
giving rise to differential tension on one side of the body. The body
is effectively pulled out of balance by the soft tissue tightening up
on one side.
the Bowen Move creates vibrations through fascia which adjusts its tension
and in turn affects areas out of alignment through adjusting and changing
how muscle groups respond.
WHAT CAN BOWEN TREAT?
No matter what sport you could think of, Bowen may help your performance. It is now medically recognised that Bowen therapy may be the best treatment for frozen shoulder (at least twice as fast as physio) with no painful manipulation. It can have effective techniques for carpal tunnel, pelvic misalignment, tennis elbow, hypermobility, restricted movement of limbs, irritable bowel and lower back (sacral) pain.
Chronic Fatigue - ME
4 treatments at weekly intervals are often sufficient to achieve
positive and lasting change and relief.
Treatments normally last between 45 mins to an hour. Most of the moves can be performed through light clothing.
