Feline and canine Bowen therapy

What Is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen was developed in the 1950's in Geelong, Australia by Tom Bowen and is now being taught and practised all over the world with wonderful results!

Bowen Therapy is a soft tissue or fascial manipulation used to correct bio-mechanical and neural dysfunctions and relieves pain.

The gentle, rolling moves are non-invasive and are made at specific points on the body over muscle insertions, trigger points and spinal reflex points. The moves which are made with the hands and via the fascia, stimulate the brain and body to begin the healing process anywhere in the body. These moves impact the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, organs, the nervous system, vascular and lymphatic systems in the body.

During the treatment there are short breaks or intervals which allow time for the impact of the moves to create change in the body.

If you've ever had a session you'll know how good it feels too, it's no wonder dogs love receiving it!

In a nutshell: Bowen Therapy is a dynamic, holistic therapy that uses a neuromuscular approach to health care and is completely safe and natural!

canine bowen therapy for senior dogs
These therapies are useful to be included as part of a wellness and maintenance plan for growing puppies during the vital stages of their development since they can knock themselves around quite a bit during rough play and by being a normal clumsy puppy.

Just as we perform regular maintenance on our car to keep them running smoothly, our animals also benefit from regular 'tune ups' to keep their bodies healthy and to catch any issues early preventing them from developing into chronic problems!

One of the most rewarding things for me, is to see the effect these therapies have on improving the comfort, quality of life and restoring function in senior dogs, giving them extra time to spend with their families.
It's so rewarding to see the spark returning to their beautiful wise old eyes once their body is helped back into balance and they start to feel more comfortable!
