What is Bowen Therapy and how does it work?

Tom Bowen founded the Bowen Technique which is not considered a massage, but a gentle muscle release technique achieved by a series of gentle cross fibre moves that have long term benefits to ensure that the injury or pain is not recurring. The main purpose of Bowen Therapy is to find the origin of a problem and not merely the symptoms. This makes it extremely successful to treat pain felt in the ankle, knee, lower back and neck.

Bowen Therapy being able to address the original problem within the body makes it able to treat a great variety of symptoms to provide relief to the patient.

Other symptoms that can be treated are:

  • Sciatica
  • Plantar Facitis
  • Baby Colic
  • Asthma
  • Dizziness
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Headaches
  • Repetitive stress injury (RSI)
  • Whiplash
  • Dental or Facial pain
  • Many muscle or joint pains of unknown origin
  • Emotional stress and anxiety

Bowen Therapy is a very light therapy performed through light clothing which works by stimulating a cross fibre muscle release. This stimulates the body to reset energy flows giving the patient a deep sense of relaxation. Regular pauses between moves allow the body to react to the sensation and kick start the self-healing process.

What can you expect during a treatment?

You would be required to lie on a bed and can be performed through light clothing. Sessions can last from 30 minutes to an hour. It is usually recommended to have two to three sessions of the Bowen Technique with a break of five to ten days between each session. 

For those cold winter days, Orange Bowen Therapy has the room heated to the perfect temperature and an electric blanket provided for extra warmth. Then you can just lie down, relax and allow your body to rejuvenate.
