This technique was developed by Tom Bowen in Geelong, Victoria,
Australia, following the 2nd World War. He developed a gentle
soft tissue procedure using highly intuitive assessment skills.
A very gentle technique, the basic 'Bowen' move is made by
rolling the thumbs and forefingers over a muscle or tendon
at precise locations to help with relaxation.
A precise series of moves has a profoundly relaxing effect,
helping to balance the body systems and supporting the body's
innate ability to self heal.
There are crucial pauses in the work allowing time for the
nervous system and fascia to respond. A treatment session
lasts from 30 minutes to an hour on a comfortable bed with
the client wearing light loose clothing.
The Technique is useful on all ages from neonates through
to the elderly.
With the complex nature of physical problems affecting several
body systems it is easy to see why Bowen is such a powerful
support. Bowen is a useful adjunct in first-aid situations, post
injury or post surgery. Bowen supports the healing to
begin immediately and helps with the flow of blood and energy
to enable the body to repair itself.
