Bowen Therapy asks the body to recognize where it is out of balance and bring itself back into balance.
A Bowen therapist gives a few succinct messages and the body does the work itself. A therapist rolls their hands in a specific way across the muscle fiber, giving the brain a message to help it heal a particular area.
80% of cases have full restoration within 3 sessions.
There is no ailment you can’t address with Bowen – a therapist does not cure anything but asks the body to recognize the problems and correct itself. The treatment can help a range of disorders and balances the physical, mental and emotional planes.
Bowen Therapy was developed in Geelong by Tom Bowen in the mid 50’s. He developed his work over many years and began his treatments with the Geelong Football team. The therapy’s popularity has spread and is now taught all over the world.
