Bowen therapy was developed in Geelong, Australia by Thomas Ambrose Bowen in the 1950's 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.
Bowen Therapy involves sequences of small, gentle moves across fibres by the rolling of muscle and tendon in an organised manner at specific points on the body over muscle insertions, trigger points and spinal reflex points. The moves which are made through the fascia, stimulate the brain and body to begin the healing process. These moves impact the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, organs, the nervous system, skin, vascular and lymphatic systems in the body.
It is a gentle yet powerful technique that sends neurological impulses through activating receptors to the brain resulting in immediate responses of muscle release and pain reduction. These receptors inform the nervous system of the state of tension, lengthen or stretch in the muscles bringing a balance to the mental, physical and emotional well being with non intrusive movements. Bowen treatment can bring lasting relief from pain and discomfort and return the body back to balance.
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!
Since Bowen Therapy is a holistic therapy, it does not rely on a detailed diagnosis, which can be costly and often indeterminate. Bowen Therapy treats the whole body, and its holistic effects can resolve problems over and above the initial reason for seeking treatment.

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