Bowen Therapy

Created by the late Tom Bowen in Geelong, Australia, Bowen Therapy is a powerful yet gentle healing system which is designed to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms.

Utilising small gentle movements over specific areas of the body, the primary goal of Bowen Therapy is to balance the body’s systems be encouraging the central nervous system to shift from the sympathetic state (fight, flight or freeze) to the parasympathetic state (rest, digest and recover). Bowen is a very gentle and non-invasive therapy that when performed correctly by a trained therapist is safe to use on anyone from newborns to the elderly.

What to expect from a Bowen Treatment

A treatment consists of a series of small moves using the therapist’s thumbs and finger tips. These are applied with short rest periods inbetween which give your body and nervous system time to respond. While moves can be performed through light clothing, application to bare skin is recommended. Typically lasting from 30 minutes to an hour, a Bowen treatment is a unique experience which elicits a deep state of relaxation.
